Port Vale FC 1977: Good Typography

Being a font, logo, and graphic design geek, imagine my surprise finding this program from the mighty Port Vale FC from October 22, 1977 when they took on Peterborough United in a League Division Three match at Vale Park. It’s got some great typography, using a main font that looks to be close to Bobo Dylan or Sharktooth, plus the bold look of Futura. It is also chock filled with great illustrations, classic font use, and a color scheme of green, yellow, black and white that works quite well.

As of that date, The Valiants were 3rd from the bottom of the table while The Posh were sat in 8th on goal differential. The match would end in a nil nil draw, as a huge crowd of 3,502 watched Grahame McGifford and the lads put up a fight around Stoke-On-Trent. Here’s the rest of the program, with images courtesy of One Vale Fan. Up the Valiants!
