Please forgive my ignorance of football scarves, but how often are the home/away ones available? Are they always available, a yearly thing, or once in lifetime? I know I have seen them, but I always assumed it was the name/colors of one team.

They're not always available, but in the Premier League at some games someone is trying to sell them. Usually these are unofficial. Personally I'm only after one of each of the other teams we've played.
Not my photo, but it shows an example.

I really think people should be graded and it should be publicly known.

The social score I'm sure. Points off littering, etc. I'm talking more like a D and D character. Looks, intelligence, strength, income, wealth, sex ability, intangibles, peer reviews.

If an intangible is graded, is it still an intangible?
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

I have a sizeable collection of Vintage Magazines. Many have advertisements for the Company I work for, going back almost to its founding in the late-ish 1800's.

Old magazines aren't too expensive, they don't take up too much room ( although Mrs Q might debate that ), and it is fun to poke around antique stores looking for them. I have only purchased several from EBAY to get a particular advertisement I was looking for.

Here are a couple of "2 pager" Ads for some companies I don't work for. In general, the Advertisements are the most interesting part of the magazines, at least to me. There are also many cigarette ads with endorsements from Doctors way "back in the day".

Can these be home made and/or mass produced? How much does a new one cost? Are the scarves a newish thing or are there older/rarer ones from say the 1966 World Cup? Thanks in advance.

@ JQ - That Hudson ad is cool. Very futuristic, stylish, and classy looking. The car looks so loooooong...

I don't know how long it's gone on but typical prices are £10 and they're usually sold by individuals, possibly sourced from someone out of the back of a van! I don't "collect" them except as a record of which away clubs I've been to, and occasionally when they visit us. Unlike my record collecting, I don't go out my way to find them., but I try to go to each new club we play away (e.g. they've been promoted into PL or a cup fixture).

OK, one more then, 1901 Saturday Evening Post. Nothing especially interesting here, I guess, just an assortment. But it is about 120 years old, eh ? Same age as, oh wait, that's walking a bit to close to the FIRE, the Suspension List Fire. About-Face.......

You mentioned elsewhere Mrs. EB has been selling Garfield stuff recently. I bet some of the final prices have been shocking (in a good way).

The only GARFIELD I know is the CAT and the PRESIDENT. I figured there had to be something else. I googled it. But it is GARFIELD the CAT, right ? Or what ?

ANYHOWS, some of the funniest 5 minutes on FILM is the After Credits seen with Bill Murray in ZOMBIELAND 2 - DOUBLE TAP. Don't trust me, WATCH IT. Run don't walk.
