Adding to my collection

Post by Grandad » 27 Jan 2019, 12:40

Last week I was lucky enough to acquire some more teams for my collection. They were all owned from new by a retired teacher who ran a Subbuteo club from the late 1970s/early 1980s, so included HW, Zombie & LW teams and other accessories.
I’m including photos of the less common teams(to show there are still some scarce teams out there, usually hidden away in lofts or cupboards!).
Note HW217 Eintract Braunschweig 1978-80 is still ‘factory sealed’! The two HW220 teams, Rot-Weiss Essen both have the team names on the lid. All the teams shown are undamaged and appear unused!
Very pleased particularly as it’s been sometime since I added to my collection!
Jeff

Great find Jeff, As well as your 217, love the 220s, PSG and the AIK HWs.

More proof that there are still some great HW teams to be found out there.

Some absolute gems in that lot. Fantastic finds Jeff. I think you may get inundated with very good offers for many of them.

Some very rare teams in that lot.

Just goes to show what's still out there.

Interestingly...it seems all of the German teams were released with typed named labels. Seen so many of them in the past like that.

Yes, really pleased thanks. I've been collecting HWs for about 7 years now, and I've never come across these before. I'm also intrigued by the two LW teams shown in the first 2 pictures (I sold my LW collection last year to concentrate on HWs and earlier Subbuteo!) as I believe they're also very scarce, particularly the HP Berlin 213 team, but perhaps some LW collectors can confirm this? ( I looked on the 'Mingardo' website - LW ratings, and 213 is shown as '6' his highest level of rarity....!), so that's encouraging.
Happy and successful collecting!
Jeff
