Subbuteo-themed music

Was on Amazon buying a book, when I found the following two music tracks with a Subbuteo theme:- - "The Subbuteo Lads" by Luke Haines. From the "I sometimes dream of glue" album 2018 - "Subbuteo" by The Black Museum. From the "The Black Museum" album, 2017? Haven't listed to either track, yet. Chris

Re: ebay side splitters #2

Away with the fairies! (Even if it was complete/undamaged)
Maybe £3.50 is nearer the mark!

Seville FC

On holiday in Spain and walked into the club shop on Friday in Seville.
There was a modern set on a table display with Perspex lid and sets for Sale stacked underneath.
Flick to kick going strong in Seville!

It was actually Parcel Hero. 4.7kg to Italy was £22 including VAT.

Re: Stadium Edition Boxset

Courier costs are much more reasonable for bulky items / heavier than 2kg, compared to Royal Mail. I think I used "Parcel Pete" last time, who get UPS to do the donkey work for them. The websites give you a cost based on dimensions and weight ( and destination, of course) For a 5kg parcel to Italy, ...

Re: How long do you give someone to pay before relisting?

Might be an idea to send the parcel recorded delivery, just in case he claims for non-delivery. He has a history of not paying / not communicating with the seller, so he would be a higher risk for claiming parcel never arrived. Chris

Re: Shipping from America

Bought some job lots from an American seller a year or two ago who'd got some old shop stock of UK made Subbuteo from 70s.
Main issue was having to pay 20% VAT to UK Customs before they allow items to be forwarded to you.
I guess same applies for anywhere outside EU.

C131 Corner Kicker

Chelsea with blue socks. Hand written 42 ref sticker on box, so likely to be an over enthusiastic Subbuteo painter.

Subbuteo themed spin offs

Significant birthday this weekend has prompted various gifts from family and friends who know I collect Subbuteo.
The lamp is readily available from Robert Dyas, but the bag is from WH Smiths, printed in China. Don't know where the coasters came from.

Fivesides

Just picked up a near mint set with Partick & Hearts celluloid flats, but not sure about the balls that should go with it. The pack of red balls seem to be cricket balls. There were a couple of small white footballs but I've assumed that they should be smaller? On the left of the photo are 3 balls I...

Goalkeeper's handle

Apart from the goalie being broken, some one has customised a handle from what looks like a 6" nail. Don't think it'll catch on!

The Range

The Range store in Bracknell had a couple of items near the checkout that caught my eye-

Subbuteo shampoo / shower gel x 3 pack
Subbuteo shaving bag (5.99)

Will try and get a photo next time.
