Pelebol boxset

Postby takis2003 » 03 Apr 2011, 12:48

Here are some photos of a Pelebol edition, another boxset in my collection.

According to Peter Upton's site,

A very nice variation this one. Made under licence in Brazil. The small Subbuteo logo, and the circular box picture date this set to the late 1970s. I don't really know anything else about it, but if you look at the interior illustration above, you should see that the pitch has the Pelebol logo, the goals are a simplistic moulded plastic affair, and three of the flags are in reverse colours - i.e. green flags on orange bases. Most strange.

I've been told that there were six kits sold with Pelebol, and having now seen a couple of boxed editions it would appear that you could get any two of these sides in these sets.


A very interesting as well as quite uncommon set, even though this one isn't in the best of conditions. :roll:

The pitch (seems to be of better quality than the nylon version)

Image

Team #1 - Flamengo (moulded players and the white blop showing on some figures' feet is glue reside from having to reglue them)

Image

Team #2 - Santos (the goalkeeper is not the one that was included in this set, but rather a common HW one).

1 to 100 HW series now completed. :fadein:

All HW national teams references now collected. :D

What should be next? :roll:

I am not 100% sure, but I heard once it was named Pelebol as Subbuteo translated as a rather rude word in Brazil
