Re: bidding madness

Always amazes me that such high bids go in so early.

Re: card and celluliod teams pics

Cockney The pictures look great your efforts are appreciated. Much as I like heavyweights the flats have an almost pop art appeal when you see them enlarged and I had not realised the different variation in the faces. Can't believe the collection you have got together. Look forward to seeing some mo...

Re: Weirdest things Subbuteo gets sent through the post in....

This must be the weirdest of the lot. I bought some spare players that were stuck into a Rowntrees jelly and stuffed back into the packet then taped over. I wonder if he included the cost in the postage charges. Anyone want to own up to that one?

Re: New to the forum

Hi Port I am a newbie as well and a similar story. Started in 1969 and probably had a similar set to you. All my stuff was given away but not by me. As I had not played with subbuteo for a few years I suddenly found one day it was missing. My Mum had given it all to one of my younger cousins. I expe...

Re: Ebaying and posting overseas

Thanks also for the info. I see that you are able to charge above the actual packing and postage costs as long as it is not excessive. Would probably be better if Ebay did not leave it open to debate.

Re: Ebaying and posting overseas

If posting a team to Italy via normal airmail, I charge £3.00 and make sure I obtain proof of postage. If sending signed for I charge £6.30. The bottom line , if people feel postage is high, don't bid. I wouldn't bid on something if I thought postage was too high and if I did bid, it would be on ...

Re: old cat front cover scans, prob seen before

I have just bought a set of these and could scan some of the teamsheets, but am away for the next two weeks. Will put some on when I am back if nobody has done it in the mean time.

Re: Mr Muscle overload...

They look like real zombies. Thanks for the post, I was just about to use the oven cleaner on some of mine. I will try the floor cleaner as suggested. Do you soak them in it?

Re: building a terrace\stand from scratch...any suggestions

Looks great. Have been thinking about a similar project but not sure how much time would be needed. Any idea of the time you have spent so far. Are you using balsa for the main framework and what paint?

Re: prices.

I think it just depends who is bidding. Bidders are putting in higher amounts to secure an item which they don't necessarily expect to pay and if several are doing this on one item the price gets forced up.
