Pelebol Subbuteo by Estrela MEGA RARE box set

Postby rimetcup » 18 Dec 2017, 20:03

Ideal Christmas present to add a unique gem to your Subbuteo collection!

A mega rare Brazilian Pelebol Subbuteo set manufactured under license by Estrela for sale only in Brazil. Set is complete with the teams Corinthian and Palmeiras, 20 moulded base heavyweight figures and two goalies in perfect conditions. Set also comes with the goals, Pelebol pitch (very good condition!) 6 flags, 2 balls & the original instructions. All the content is original and in great condition.
This set is known in Brasil as “Pelebol Grande”. Pelebol articles are among the rarest of the Subbuteo galaxy, as they were on sale only during one year in Brazil, back in 1979!
Condition overall is great, set has been used, outer box has been restored and now is in fair condition considering it is almost forty years old. With few tape repairs but still has the original label showing code number 20.18.21 which confirms the teams as being Corinthians and Palmeiras.
Needless to say this is a VERY rare set; it will fill a prestigious gap in your collection. I didn´t see one of these sets on sale recently (the last one saw in eBay was around ten years ago!) so this could be your unique opportunity.

Rare Subbuteo Pelebol Grande in good condition with original reference sticker.
Further item description and details:
overall teams condition: Perfect
any breaks or reglues?2 No

Without wanting to hiss on the OP's fire...yes, you don't see many on ebay, but if you buy from Brazilian trading websites, and don't just rely on ebay then they are quite common. There are even sealed boxed teams available if it's your thing.

I have myself a sealed team, but I am sorry to say you are wrong. Pelebol is rare, very rare to find even in Brasil...

Probaly you don't know the story of the game, it was produced by Estrela under Subbuteo license only during 1979. Unfortunately the country was ruined by the second petrol crisis that year, so that Pelebol's production was unexpectedly stopped. I was living in Brasil few years, Ican confirm Pelebol is very rare indeed. Saying it is quite common is simply not true. And if times to times you find one on internet, it is practicallly impossible to buy it if you are not resident in Brazil, have a Brazilian bank account, etc etc. Then even if you (and sorry you won't be able to) buy one, you will have to pay the custom....And finally most of the time sets are in terrible conditions and not correspond to ads. Brazilian online sales market is not exactly a trustable one... :D :D :D

By the way Pelebol Grande shown above is already gone. I have stil available all the six teams produced by Estrela back in 1979: Brazil, Flamengo, Santos, Corinthians, Palmeiras and Internacional. All teams are in great conditions, Corinthians isa MINT/sealed one! Please PM if interested, the cheapest one is on sale at 200 pounds.
