Re: rare indoor on SW

Not sure why anyone would associate the White and Red kit with Clydebank as it bears very little resemblance to any Clydebank kit ? on that basis alone Pete is probably more likely to be correct . Clydebank ? No. Looks like a Motherwell c1992 pattern done in red. Sometimes they loaded up the wrong ...

Lack of 11 players instead of 10 in the standard C100 team boxes Lack of HW sub/reserves for all references in the accessories range SSG used to sell these direct from the factory for 1/- apiece + postage.

Re: Early 70's World Cup Box Set

Surely the box is everything. All the contents would be (relatively) easy to replace. A few years ago, I was talking to a bloke who'd been working on restoring the "Flying Scotsman".

There's a World Cup edition boxset on Ebay at the moment. Comes with :-
3 teams; England, West Germany and Holland.
Standard goals, not World Cup goals.
Wired goalies, not plastic goalies.
May not be entirely kosher. #-o

Sometimes a bit dull but the latest podcast an interesting interview with Trevor Spencer.

His memory seems to be failing - he refers to ref 41 as Chelsea. :angry:

On iTunes, search podcasts for "Subbuteo" and it'll come up. :thumleft:

Re: Shop Display 1968

thinking on this item the trays aren't the usual trays in the shop displays. ie , should have 15 player slots like a rugby tray. they seem to be the standard hw box trays and not as per the ones I have in my 5 tray version as per below therefore not sure if they are genuine or maybe SSG did them li...
