Re: Ref. 294 Newell's Old Boys Machine Printed Version

collecting as an investment is very difficult. I doubt my collection of over 400 llwteams is worth anything like what I have paid for the teams. Right now rare lw teams do seem to be getting more expensive but I think the peak may not be far away. We are all getting older and the amount of cash we h...

Re: Ref. 294 Newell's Old Boys Machine Printed Version

I'm no expert but that label would have me worried. New Wells Old Boys.? Would definitely do some research before parting with that sort of money. However just now looked at Mingardo's website and the label does appear to be genuine http://www.mingardo.it/images/Collezione/LW/201%20-%20300/294%20-%2...

Re: Collecting lw’s ct100 or 63000?

Don't think there is a book that details every kit however a good website is http://www.mingardo.it/Start%20Galleria.htm
And http://www.mingardo.it/Rating%20LW.htm
You can also pick up old catalogues for a few pounds on eBay.

Re: Collecting lw’s ct100 or 63000?

I think that's an almost impossible question to answer as there are many factors to consider. I started growing my sons collection of about 150 teams. He got his first teams around 1986 and they were the teams in the a5 baize boxes. Then in around 1990 Subutteo introduced the "John Jensen " boxes. M...

Re: Complete list of Netcam/Hasbro/PLG teams

Is this the same surprise tam in each box? Would be interesting if there were a number of different surprise teams particularly if they were new

Re: COLLECTERS FAIR 20TH MAY

This is one event I always try to get to even though it's a 200 mile round trip.
If you know what you want and If you want to save on postage you can always order from Subbuteoworld and then pick up at the fair.

Re: This Could Start A Bidding Frenzy

Subbuteo is now like most of the art galleries around the world full of fakes. I wonder what percentage of rare teams in collections are fakes. I've read that a lot of galleries know they have fakes but tend not to publicise it, a bit like Subbuteo collectors I suspect. Spot on. I would love to hav...

Re: AC MILAN

cant see anyone making money by painting a current kit. for example a new AC Milan is readily available at around £12 from many suppliers.
don't know how much blank teams cost but the profit margin must be very small.

Think those painters who do make money specialise in one offs or historic kits.
