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: lol And Santos IS ref 165...or at least it shoul...

Re: Subbuteo T Shirt

Great pic Ian.

That's the 62-63 season team in the old division 2.

A young Graham Taylor is far left on front row.

Re: Subbuteo T Shirt

Yeh think Ralph and ian have nailed it with regards to the red shorts. Grimsby did wear them at the beginning of the 60's for a couple of seasons. http://www.historicalkits.co.uk/Grimsby_Town/Grimsby_Town.htm Ralph's explanation makes sense as Subbuteo would likely have done the kit based on a descr...

There were a couple of different Subbuteo design t shirts on sale in the GTFC shop.

here are the others

It has Subbuteo (Hasbro) tags so presumably it is under licence.

Subbuteo T Shirt

Went to the Grimsby v Carlisle game today.

Another disappointing afternoon for the Mariners and another game without a goal (that's 5 games in row for Town)

The highlight of the day was discovering this in the Club Shop.

Re: Ref 110 Trivia

perhaps...you may have a point.

I know Lugano have historically had young players on loan from Serie A clubs.

Re: REF 77 WITH SOCK TRIM....

yes you are right Jon. A typical 249 Lavsl is a darker orange.

This team is without a doubt a 77. All be it a nice example of a slight variation to the norm.

Re: Ref 110 Trivia

nice find Mark I have always found it strange that no team from the Italian region of Switzerland has ever made a real mark. Lugano are probably the biggest team from there but havnt really done much. Bellinzona Locarno and Chiasso have spent most of their history outside the top flight. instead Ger...

Re: Ref 110 Trivia

Another example of Subbuteo's idiosyncrasies of the time. Team names not quite right, odd choices of teams, variations to kits, some kits not accurate.......the joys of Subbuteo particularly in the HW era. For me it's part of the charm. One of my favourite Subbuteo items are the full colour poster t...

Re: Most spent on a team?

Sorry Mark my old mate but I can't. Dont think i have ever spent more than £40 on a team. But when you bid for the slotcar you felt it was worth it and i am sure you will get a lot of satisfaction from it. Hey we have seen HW teams sell for ££££££ on E-bay and I am pretty sure some of them werent ko...

Re: ONE MANS MAGNIFICENT OBSESSION.....

What a fantastic collection Mark. Superb. I can only imagine how long it has taken to collect and how long it took to put that montage together. I am glad you did. You have quite a few refs i would dearly love to have. I find base combos interesting and how different they can make a team look. I hav...
