A Few Options Are Available To You At Maley’s Bhoys
We all know how difficult some people can be to buy for at Christmas every year. Obviously, for a lot of Celtic fans, almost anything with a Celtic badge on the front can be considered a potential present, but a lot of them can be a tad clichéd. Anyway, if you’re looking for something a bit different to add onto someone’s Christmas present this year, then you may well have come to the right place.
MND Appeal Discs
Firstly, I’ll run through our option which would allow you to help the good people at Motor Neurone Disease Scotland. As of a couple of months ago, we’ve been selling discs (for your computer) with over 5,000 old Celtic photographs on each of them, ranging from the earliest days of the Club up until fairly recently. These discs, which are also available to download, can give you and your chosen recipient a fantastic trip down memory lane. For example, when I took a disc down to my cousins, we meant to look at it for five minutes…two hours later, and there we were, still arguing over which ground a picture was taken at, or about which season we wore a particular kit.
There is no set price for these discs, but £10 is the recommended donation (to put that into context, that’s less than 0.2 pence per image). All of the money for downloads will go to Motor Neurone Disease Scotland at the end of the football season with the rest of the money we raise during our appeal (£305 so far as I write this). However, if you would like a disc posted to you we would ask for a postage, packaging and product cost of £2 on top of your donation. Obviously, if you were to order more than one this cost does not double or treble providing the discs are going to the same address.
I should state once again, for the sake of copyright’s etc, that I do not profit in any way, shape or form from the production or sale of these pictures discs. All of the money, as explained above, goes to MND Scotland or into postage/packaging/blank disc costs. I should also state that, theoretically, you could make one of these discs yourselves if you were willing to spend days of your life trawling the internet clicking “save”, “save”, “save”, as I did.
Some more of the sample photographs found on the disc can be seen at the bottom of the page. You can order these by simply contacting myself on here, on Twitter, or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, as ever, I’ve still got a rather large selection of old Celtic programmes up for sale, predominantly from the 1970-80’s, with some earlier (none before 1960) and some later (mostly early 1990’s). If you’re looking for the programme from a particular match you remember, or trying to find one from a game which fell on a loved one’s birthday, feel free to get in touch! Home, away, friendly, and European programmes are available. If you don’t even know what you want, feel free to contact me and I can tell you about some of the options we have in an attempt to find the best programme(s) to suit your needs.
Please note though, the proceeds from these sales do not go to Motor Neurone Disease Scotland. These proceeds are kept by myself, and go towards things such as website costs, petrol, and beer. By that I don’t mean to sound shallow, but they are my property I have been selling for sometime to help put a bit of extra money in my pocket when times are tight, whereas the discs are just something I put together in an attempt to help support MND.
I should also state that, in advance, I do not have a copy of the Lisbon 1967 programme for sale, as that’s obviously the one a lot of people ask for.
Finally, as promised a few more pictures from the discs I mentioned can be found below:
