LW World Cup Squads

Postby HPL17 » 29 Mar 2018, 08:42

Hi guys,

I recently decided to take up again on collecting LW teams (I started in the 80-ies and added teams until 2004 and have around 250 LW teams in my collection) and to look for original LW teams on the market today that I still miss in my collection. I noticed it's very difficult to find the more rare teams and when they pop up the prices are crazy? I came across a special World Cup Squad Napoli Champions of Italy 1986-87, which I had never seen before in any catalogue. The box looks completely original, sticker in Italian colours across the box also typical for world cup squads sold in Italy during the eighties and in 1990 with the World Cup in Italy. I was wondering if anybody here could tell me more about this item (cofirmation that's it an original item, special release?, is it rare?, have similar club teams been released in world cup squad version (I have seen teams like Juventus and Penarol in P100 16 man squad version but not in the newer world cup squad boxes)?, is this is a typical Italian thing or have other European club teams been released in world cup squad version? what would be the value today of this team? (to see if I overpaid :) etc.). Thanks in advance for any help!

If you are on facebook, there are some Italian based groups/pages where such stuff is sold, or you can post your wants etc

I didn't know that, thanks for the tip! Any idea under which names I can find these groups? PM is also appreciated if it can't be mentioned here.
