Luca. You're missing the point.

I ordered the team myself, personally, from SSG, over 40 years ago.

Yep - they're mine too. Did a sheet full at a time on my dad's typewriter.

Who'd've thought they'd end up in Ireland 40 odd years later ? :crazyeyes:

Yeah - still got those samples mate.

Just wasn't happy with the full team and sold it on.

Good job I got the subs, eh ? I see one's broken. :(

Later on, I moved on to getting 4 subs rather than 2. Knew I'd never get a colour match.

Yes, one broken, today I have reglued it

The substitutes have got the "13" and "14" numbered.... ;-)

Why did you sell the Manchester City 2nd?

Must've been my pre-treiskadekaphobic period.......

The City team ? Some City fan offered me a good price. Machine printing ended the Special Service, of course.

Great teams Richard.

If I could turn back time I would have taken full advantage of the Special Service. I never knew it existed back then.......I would have blown lots of pocket money If I had.

LOVE that City 2nd. That would have been on my wish list as a kid. My front 5 of Bell, Summerbee, Lee, Marsh & Law would have been scoring goals for fun..

Good days them when City were still a football club and could fill Maine Road with Mancunians as opposed to not filling Soccerthemeworld with daytrippers :wink:
