North American Soccer League, R.I.P.


Recommended Posts

I collect videotapes of the North American Soccer League

(NASL). I now have almost 200 matches on tape, including

the greatest match in NASL history, the 1979 Whitecaps -

Cosmos Semifinal.

Does anyone have tapes to trade? I will trade for any
