Re: World Cup hw box labels x 16 Set repro

Nail on head...exactly Mark. Speaking to collectors, everyone is different, or so it seems. We each have our own nuances. Right now, I don't have the space to have my Subbuteo collection how I want it. It's all in storage. I occasionally get to rummage. However...I get the buzz from the hunt, rather...

Re: World Cup hw box labels x 16 Set repro

Makes total sense Mark...that way you can enjoy both hobbies.
and also not have the burden of cost on my shoulders, though these cars are costing a bomb put together.. :?
I should imagine it's more costly collecting Scalextric, is it not Mark, or am I barking up the wrong tree?

Re: OHW JOB LOT....

What strikes me with all those hooped socks, is that the one team that should have hooped socks, hasn't....Barcelona.

Has anyone ever found a pic of Barcelona, ever wearing the distinct socks SSG gave them, and yet never changed through the years?

Re: World Cup hw box labels x 16 Set repro

They look great Mark. 8) When I've made sets for World Cup projects in the past, I printed the names the same size as the original SSG. Just on to self adhesive paper. Then cut them to the same size.

Re: Whats was this Box for?

I've got a couple of spare FA cup bodies (no plinth or lid) if you want to restore those broken cups.

Re: Whats was this Box for?

I think they used up those old brown box's like any business would...have seen various early C range accessories turn up in those types of box's.

Here's a pic of red scoreboard and box.

Re: Help...

The die cut in the inlay, was to place the goalkeeping rods in, supposedly to keep them in place, at an angle. Most end up ripped...completely useless as it is so hard to remove the rods without damaging the inlay mate.

Re: Base Shape

Then you have a later production common Ref 41...with massively warped bases, late plastic inners, and late plastic figures. A right concoction.
