Re: Couldnt make this up

nearly as bad as couple of teams i bought recently off a nice old lady in scotland. When she said Cape Town and Paris, i thought result.when it arrived, Cape town turned out to be Holland and psg was Dundee. I can imagine you were getting the "here's a little haul I picked up recently" post ready.

Re: Couldnt make this up

Or the time someone sent me a lovely OHW team only for them to selloptape the figures to the inner box so they didn't move around.
I live safe in he knowledge that these people will be weeded out by a process of natural selection.

Re: Desperation strikes

The issue is not entirely what this guy sells, but where they go. The next seller might not photograph them so well, or might be included a job lot. Do that a couple of times and you might be the one buying the 139. Admittedly the 115 looks wrong from any angle and so is an easy spot, but you probab...

Desperation strikes

Re: new book

How did you get through it, it seems terribly translated?
If anyone wants to see what I mean have a look at the preview on Amazon. Looks like someone just went to bing.com and copied and pasted.

Re: Unbelievable

eBay has really gone off the boil over the last year+. Too many dodgy teams or buy it nows for several 100.
In the last calendar year I must have bought about a couple of teams on there.

Re: What team is this?

All plausible answers, I'd go along with the idea it's a French side. The definitive answer is probably lost in the midst of time, especially as you don't have the team (yet?)
Amusing where Troyes have "Small boat" on there shirts, I wonder why?

Re: What team is this?

Makes sense. The others could be a 239 with a lot of paint. Might be worth a quick dab with a damp cloth to check if it's poster paint.

Re: 4 NEW ADDITIONS TO THE COLLECTION....

Stripe-less Nantes is in decent condition, the River plate is a good one agreed. Probably the last bases left in the house you'd guess.

Re: Buying off Gumtree

Sounds like a wrong un, as soon as the excuses start ringing in...I mean who can't generate a paypal invoice?
I've bought off gumtree ( a wood planer) but picked it up and could back out of deal if no good. It was actually in excellent nick, so there are bargains to be had.

Re: OHW JOB LOT....

Smashing little lot, the 40 black shorts is rare indeed and used to fetch 100+. OHW prices have been up and mostly down of late, so who knows what they go for nowadays. The 39 and 19 are also nice examples.
