Re: Subbuteo on Dickinson Real Deal

This particular episode was shown again this afternoon on ITV at 3pm. There looked to be some pretty decent teams in the joblot. Well worth the 300 quid; providing there weren't any reglues in there.

Re: Identifying Lightweight and heavyweight

Thanks for the info Paul - I'm born in 1981, so it was lightweights that I collected as a kid. I have mostly lightweights now and it's only recently that I started to pick up some heavyweights. It's really hard to pick teams up on eBay though, it's so competitive. I have managed to get two job lots...

Re: This Could Start A Bidding Frenzy

Subbuteo is now like most of the art galleries around the world full of fakes. I wonder what percentage of rare teams in collections are fakes. I've read that a lot of galleries know they have fakes but tend not to publicise it, a bit like Subbuteo collectors I suspect. Spot on. I would love to hav...

Re: Identifying Lightweight and heavyweight

Just interested which particular era of subbuteo did you originally start with, DC ?? Also, if you're near to Sheffield and/or Stoke, there are a couple of fairs coming up in the near future. There's usually a few of the guys on here who attend these meets. They'll give you some advice about the joy...

Re: Rare Black Shorts 28 or Repaint?

7 players. Keep 'em, Adrian. You're bound to come across 3 more with green outer, yellow inner. Then, when you do, paint 'em up. Many reference numbers on that base combo. Stick 'em in a repro box. Be careful though. You might just end up stimulating that collecting gene a bit more, buying a few gen...

Re: Identifying Lightweight and heavyweight

. Yep, they're repaints, DC. The green base figure is a crouching goalkeeper from the interchangeable goalkeepers set (mid 70-ish).

Are you playing, collecting or both, mate ??

Re: Any suggestions

.

I know it's not Afican but a reference 71 would look well with those bases; but obviously with a different flesh colour.

a receipt of originality from reinshaw trade fair

Think I'll ask for a receipt of originality next time I'm at Renishaw fair. You can never be too careful these days. I want a genuine receipt, not a fake one, mind. :lol:
