1952 Philadelphia Nationals letter to Manchester United fan dated 8 March 1952, full letter explaining the football structure of the Nationals club together with a b & w photo of the team squad with two trophies. It should be noted that the former Manchester United player Eddie McIlvenny signed in 1950, from America and his debut v Fulham at Old Trafford is covered in an enclosed newspaper match report. McIlvenny is more important to football history because he represented the USA v England in 1950, in Brazil, when the USA won 1-0. United later played a Philadelphia select side on their American tour in the summer of 1952. Interesting lot.
