Re: Old Toy & Subbuteo Shops

When I get teams with named price labels on, I always google the name to see where the team originally came from.
Surprising how many forums are out there that talk about old shops in various Towns. And old pictures to view of the old shops.

Re: Adding to my collection

Some absolute gems in that lot. Fantastic finds Jeff. I think you may get inundated with very good offers for many of them. Some very rare teams in that lot. Just goes to show what's still out there. Interestingly...it seems all of the German teams were released with typed named labels. Seen so many...

Re: different coloured boots

Also remember that the players were painted in bulk and collected from the outworkers. The teams were made up and boxed in a separate operation. Exactly this... SSG was a business...and teams were often thrown together. There are general rules, but you often get mixed boot and hair colours, differe...

Re: Winged shorts figure in hw base

Correct Jon...

It's odd when you think that SSG would have paid to have the winged shorted figure produced on a bar. Not cheap. Moulded and on bar...probably the one figure we see least of.

Here you go mate...in all it's glory.

Great team Jon...lovely find.

I've found winged short players on bar in Football Express teams before as well.

Re: OSC OS (Old Subbuteo Club Old Sods)

And long may it continue Adam...it's the magic formula imo, and why the 'Club', and interest from others to join us has been so successful. We are a right mixed bunch of personalities...and on paper it shouldn't work...but I've never known such a diverse group get on so well. It's playing for fun ra...

Re: 4-2-4 loose players

I don't think so, partly because there's a very limited range if teams to collect. I paid £20 for 7000 of these painted figures from a fella near Tunbridge Wells. He wasn't sure, but he thought they were made locally. Now 4-2-4 was based in Guernsey (tax reasons?) but I can't imagine there was a ne...

Re: 4-2-4 loose players

Let us know if you find out whether they were subcontracted out Chris...interesting stuff.

Don't think I can start collecting anything else apart from HW Subbuteo...not enough room I'm afraid.
