Re: Subbuteo T Shirt

Leeds Utd in the 1950s. By the heavyweight era it was Bangor (NI) and Drumcondra (Ire). (1952-88) This team is listed with blue shorts from 1970-71 until 1972-73, but reverts back to black with the illustrated catalogues. The version with blue shorts then becomes reference 121 so ffs is it Drum OR ...

Re: Subbuteo T Shirt

Just making the point that collectors will always refer to a 26 as Drumcondra.

Not Leeds United - which is why it came into the catalogue originally.

Up the Drums. :026:
True but that is because they are largely English or Italian and know nothing :lol:

Re: Subbuteo T Shirt

It'd be nice if the player was ref 38. :Doh: Town never actually played in a ref 38 kit though......another Subbuteo idiosyncrasy. Irrelevant !! 38 has always been Grimsby. Just like 26 is always Drumcondra. What have facts got to do with it ? :roll: Good cast Richard but I'm not biting Up The Drum...

Re: Subbuteo T Shirt

They had red shorts and socks in 1962 just before the ohw release Mark...but it was with a plain white shirt. I think this is how SSG made the mistake. I think they got promoted that year too...probably why SSG added it.
sorry Ian you beat me to it :wink: time for work

Re: Subbuteo T Shirt

38 dates from 1963 and I would suggest is simply a corruption of the Town kits 59-63 .. check them out You can imagine SSG write to Grimsby asking about the kit .. they simply reply it is White and Black with Red shorts .. just flick through any yearbook/playfair whatever before the modern era the k...

Re: Complete list of Netcam/Hasbro/PLG teams

Very. Nice new team. However seems a shame that the minimum order from the website is greater than the cost of this team. Is there anywhere in the uk that it can. Be ordered from. Yes .. the forum sponsor is advertising 9 new ones , all now on hockey pucks for those unable to play Subbuteo due to a...

The ESA are the same they pick it up and put it down when it suits them ... going back years you've only to read TE's thoughts to see how way off-beam some people are and were ... back in the 70's all the fuss and splits when people were somehow surprised that a company which existed to make money b...
