Videos of Historic Matches

Postby DaveBrett » Wed Jun 12, 2013 11:57 pm

I collect DVDs of great matches in world football history. They are on my web
site: www.DaveBrett.com

My "Want List" includes the following. Does anyone have these?

1. Any USA match prior to 1979.
2. August 10, 1976: Miami Toros at Cosmos - Pele scores on a bicycle kick
3. 1976 Soccer Bowl: Toronto vs Minnesota - The only NASL Soccer Bowl I can't find.
4. August 14, 1977 Playoff Game 1: Strikers at Cosmos - This is known as the "77,000 game" at the Meadowlands.
5. June 28, 1981: Cosmos 5 at Chicago Sting 6 - I have highlights of this one, but not the full game.

Thanks,
Dave

Have you asked the webmaster of nasljerseys.com ? I remember him talking about watching old NASL games a lot.

NASLjerseys is a great site. But the webmaster got most of his videos from me. He doesn't have anything that I don't have.

Of the videos on my want list, the games from the 70s are going to be hard to find. VCRs were very rare in the late 70s. But I suspect that someone recorded that 1981 game. VCRs were more common at that point.
