Re: Motherwell from Subbuteoworld

The box with the sticker is hard to fake, very hard.

No HW's figures or bases were produced after 1977, they just used old stock for the following 2 or 3 years. They would put together te...

Re: collecting rare items...someone here ?

Has anyone got or seen the 'Paint Your Own sets' that were available?
I remember in the early 1980's you could buy blank lightweight teams with bases in a SSG box to paint up

Re: HELP!!!!! :-)

Terry, there's no harm in making a two-pronged attack.

Re: Old Goalkeeper Bases...

Digging through a load of stuff to sell, I came across 2 goalie bases with the writing "R.D.851000" on one half and Subbuteo on the other, any info regarding these guys?
It's the patent number mate...first introduced on celly bases in 1949.
Thanks Ian, these guys are plastic goalies...
