    They are a difficult sell now, you might be better off trying Facebook marketplace , the eBay fees might be too high for the sort of prices you are likely to get.

  •  The last time I looked at the football programmes market one of the biggest dealers only wanted to buy pre 1955 programmes

    If you go on Facebook and join a supporters group for the team/teams who you have programmes for you are more likely to be in touch with people who are interested in programmes. 

    I agree with soolin that they’re a hard sell right now, most stuff from the last 20-30 years unless signed or a very special game will be under £1 - a lot of programmes going back to 1990ish were going on my team’s FB supporters group for £1 for 3 or 50p each, just to give you an idea

    I had to clear out a load of 30-40 year old programmes from my deceased brothers house. 

    I offered them free to the relevant team supporters club but they weren't interested in taken them off my hands and told me only pre-1960's one were in any demand. 

    They ended up in the paper recycling.

    My son had box loads and we joined a couple of supporter forums only to find about half the posts were people trying to flog, or even give away their football programmes.

    I suspect rather than charity shop them, they have ended up back in a box in my storage somewhere !

    In a few decades they'll be considered old and have acquired some value!

    A few years ago I picked up 100s for free, thinking I had got a bargain.
    I sold a couple individually but not many. After several months I sold the remainder as a job lot for about a tenner
