Lively Tales About Dead Teams



The WPBL published league media guides for the 1979-80 and 1980-81 seasons and its various clubs produced some very attractive game programs. All memorabilia from this league is pretty rare, but Chicago Hustle and Minnesota Fillies programs tend to be the most common. By contrast, in two decades of collecting we have never seen a program surface from the Philadelphia Fox or Washington Metros franchises.

  1. While cleaning out my attic I found a 70-80 NY stars WBL Program and it has one autograph by Gail Marquis on her photo. Any idea if there is a market for it?

  2. Hi Pam,

    You’ll typically see Women’s Basketball League programs sell for $15 and up on e-Bay depending on the team. Some teams are more common (Chicago, Milwaukee, Minnesota) whereas other you never see (California, Nebraska, New England). New York is probably a little more common – more on the $15 end of the spectrum. The autograph really doesn’t add any value in this case, since players from the WBL don’t have much name appeal or notoriety. In fact, many collector’s strongly prefer the programs be completely “clean” and without any writing in them, including player autographs.
