Re: Buying off Gumtree

I've bought off Gumtree without seeing the stuff before I paid and it went ok. The risk is that you don't have a "safety net" as you would via Ebay. It's a call between your feeling and the value of what's involved. If you can afford to lose it, then it might be worth the risk. Remember, if the fell...

Re: Black shorts

It is difficult to be sure of the facts and whether one player has been painted any different to the rest or whether the buyer thinks he is being cheated. I looked through my spares and found other 77s with gloss shorts, which didn't look great. Who painted these, I don't know. I've offered a £10 di...

Black shorts

Sold two black-shorted teams on Ebay (77 & 169) and buyer has put in a claim that one of the Wolves player's shirts has been repainted. I've asked for a photo, but in the meantime need to understand what could have happened. Makes no sense to repaint shorts that are already black. Could it be the ol...

Re: Who Remember's Buying Your Very First Team...

12 & 31 only because I liked the colours. Shop owner said that kits were very similar but I wanted them anyway. Bought from a Sports Shop in Lichfield in the late 60s/early 70s, can't be sure when. Still got the odd player, but playing on the floor did for most of them over the years.

Re: Global shipping program

Tried it as a seller and didn't like it, so opted out of the scheme. However, each time I list a new item, I have to remember to select my own postage, otherwise it steers you back to fixing the postage on your behalf. Also, default position seems to be no international post. Once item listed, you c...

Re: Made the Mistake - Again

The lost parcel in Greece has proven to be correct. It arrived back to me today, almost 4 months to the day I posted it. Sticker says not claimed.
Shows that it pays to stick yer address on the outside of the parcel.
Ebay credited the buyer and now I've got my stuff back.

Re: Harrow tournament the 3rd and 4th of September

Rudi, I must have 40 or 50 pitches, so you're welcome to these free of charge. Just let me know how many you need and where to send them. I'm in Bracknell. Chris
