What a fantastic collection Mark. Superb.

I can only imagine how long it has taken to collect and how long it took to put that montage together. I am glad you did.

You have quite a few refs i would dearly love to have.

I find base combos interesting and how different they can make a team look. I have quite a few base variations you dont but you have loads i dont have. As the cost of some of the more rare teams i dont possess is quite prohibitive I have turned my attention to base combos , sock variations and whether players are pale plastic, pink plastic or painted flesh. Before you know it you can have half a dozen variants of the same team ref.

I dont think i have ever seen so many maroon and purple bases mate! But I think I may just edge you on the variations of Brazil though lol

thanks for sharing mate.

Amazing collection Mark!

Love the video....
Some mad base combinations....
Must have taken hours of video and a lifetime of collecting?

Cheers G.
