New footy team

Postby Gullseye » 11 May 2018, 19:12

Picked up this team complete team in a flats job lot. The bases all have a greenish tinge like marbling. Would this be as they should be or has somebody tried to colour the bases?

Sorry for the poor photo and being upside down ! The tops of the bases look white in the photo but they also have a green tinge.

Don't claim to be an expert, but it looks like a Newfooty Plymouth Argyle to me, possibly with some of the base tops painted.

No expert. However I have seen these marble bases before and I do have some in a lovely pink colour so perfectly normal in my opinion.

Normal...had a few of these sides over the years come in and all had that effect...beautiful really

However they play like flicking a sofa with a fat girl on it round a carpet made of 1960's shagpile

Thanks to all for the replies. Not had any of these before but did try to flick them around and your description Focus is spot on !
