Yeah - my trademark cut for the subs.

Cut a square out, bend the folds the other way, bit of sellotape, spin it round 180º, dab of glue, Bob's your uncle.

I think these should be returned to the owner, what a cracking story BTW
It all seems very easy, this revolution game
But when you start to really play things won't be quite the same
Your intellectual theories on how it's going to be
Don't seem to take into account the true reality

I remember these auctions in ebay....i did not win ( my bids were very low)

http://www.ebay.it/itm/141513074037?ssP ... 1435.l2649" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

http://www.ebay.it/itm/141513071991?ssP ... 1435.l2649" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Imho the first one was a repainted (maybe I am wrong)
The second one a 194 with reverse colors on the diagonal strip

Anyway I buy sometimes strange teams too:
http://www.ebay.it/itm/261732017875?ssP ... 1439.l2649" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

99,9% is a 5, but the white stripes are plastic and not painted ( received many pics from the seller) so...maybe made with a knife over the blu painted ....maybe not

Ah - well now you know !!

Those teams would have been bought around 1973. References didn't go up to 194 then.

SSG did bring out designs I'd already had as SS orders. I had a Luton Town about three years before it came into the catalogue.

No Luca it isn't a 194 it is Manchester City's away kit from 73/4 .. as it says on the box and as worn at Turf Moor that season.

As said before, when i bet on ebay I thought about a bad repainted team and a 194 variant. This is why my bids were so low....and pics on the auction did not help.
I think that having the first one in your hands you could have a better opinion than mine
