Haven't got it, but I did have at the time.... The one with autographs around the picture I think it came with young owls membership?

I remember I did have it from my very first issue of Shoot Magazine. The best I can find now online is this, but it looks like Howard Wilkinson was still manager when the photo was taken:

Was Eustace ever in charge over a season start?

 

Wikipedia

"He moved into management in November 1988 at Sheffield Wednesday, being promoted from assistant manager after Howard Wilkinson moved to Leeds United. Eustace was sacked after just three months and replaced by Ron Atkinson.[4]"

Pretty much. We beat Middlesbrough at home, ensured our safety and sent the smoggies down.

It shouldn't exist as he took over from Wilkinson on the 21st of October 88. Still time to organise the 30th Anniversary celebrations.....

 

WTF:

 

However, I'm sure I saw it in a program from back then, with him wearing a silver and blue umbro tracksuit. As it's been 30 years since then, maybe my memory has played a trick on me.
