DC Thomson went to town on this issue of the Sporting Post dated Saturday 28 April 1962, the day Dundee won the Scottish League. 2 goals by Gilzean and 1 from Penman got us the victory at Muirton against St.Johnstone, and thus Dee history was made.
They no longer publish the Sporting Post but I still remember hanging around our newsagent as a young lad in the 60's & 70's, a couple of hours after the Saturday football had finished, and a queue would be waiting ready to pounce on the bundle of Posts chucked onto the pavement from the passing delivery van.
The wee slide show below gives you a few shots of the inside of this issue.
Music is provided by The Shadows, a track aptly titled "Wonderful Life", which was number 1 in the charts on this day.
