People who sell Subbuteo (this applies to anything really, but especially to Subbuteo) and haven't got a bl@@dy clue about the stuff they're selling.

Yes people on eBay selling common or garden early 70s Belgian flats box sets for £249.99 as a rare French edition ...

Same kind of people who advertise programmes as mint except for team changes/fold/or whatever ..in other words damaged and not mint at all

Lack of 11 players instead of 10 in the standard C100 team boxes
Lack of HW sub/reserves for all references in the accessories range
Argentina (and other south american teams) with very dark skin players
Match balls with adhesive spots (impossible to play with)
Lamps and the hole for the lamps of the brown match scoreboard (impossible to repair)

Able and treacherous repainters who post worldwide on ebay
Sellers who sell genuine teams and "only post within UK" on ebay

nothing compared to the never ending joy Subbuteo brings :clap:
May God bless and keep you always, may your wishes all come true, may you always do for others and let others do for you. May your heart always be joyful, may your song always be sung, may you stay forever young. [BOB DYLAN, Forever young]

SSG used to sell these direct from the factory for 1/- apiece + postage.

The snag was that they were painted at different times by different painters from the rest of the team and they weren't always a great match. :angry:

Warping bases are more of a problem than repaints for heavyweight collectors .Not being funny like but those of you who have invested in large heavyweight collections at great expense ...what do you think they will be worth when the bases have gone ? At the current rate of depreciation I think you may need to shift them within ten years or write off your investment completely .
