Re: CAMBRIDGE UNITED..NAMED BOX

Nice addition Skell- never seen that one before and always interesting to see whats out there and turns up.


Simple things as a label on a box- who says were not easily pleased!

Re: HW REF 55 WITH LILAC OUTERS....

Some nice teams there.
I always assumed the lilac base combos were a case of 'use that stock up'. Did Subbuteo care really about base combo colours so long as they matched in some way? i guess even back then tjere would be the odd persons with a little 'artistic flair'

Re: More teams to add into my collection... all purchased in the last days

Always amazes me where those maroon outer bases/ black inners appear. Certainly a different basecombo on the ref 58.

Re: Desperation strikes

I cant believe all the guys who repaint have moved on- money they made was too easy. Suspect a few sell under different id's , locations etc. Im sure i had a brief encounter recently with an old foe of mine. A deal too good to be true then the door closed shut- i have a hunch they remembered me. Tha...

Re: Named Aston Villa

Did they care too much when putting teams together back in the day- probably not to the extent some collectors believe they should have.

Nice find and not too often you see named box. I was looking tbrough some of my teams, found a 'new norwich'- forgotten all about it

Re: celtic 2nd ref 362 query

I sold the celtic team for £260. Crazy money but certain teams have a certain value to some people. Crazy money i know but to the buyer, money well spent and justified. Im sure a few tears back it may have sold for more, like wise in a few years time it might only be worth £20.

Re: What team is this?

An unfinished team maybe.

Over the years I've had odd players where they have either been painted incorrectly or not completed.

Didnt feel right and he never came back to me when i asked for email to pay to (i was curious to see if/what he came back with) Cons everywhere (not saying this was) and always some poor...

Re: Buying off Gumtree

Know what you mean Chris.

What puts me off this deal is hes selling on behalf of a pal who is moving abroad (ive heard that line before) and he cant generate a paypal invoice (something to do with using an older phone).

Past experiences tell to walk away.
