Ref 198 LW MP?

Post by JAMES » 16 Dec 2018, 00:57

Recently purchased a job lot and one of the box sets contained the following two part teams. I think the box set dates from about 1985.

The first team i assume is a ref 5 with white badge. The second team i think is a ref 198 MP. Done some research and all the ref 198 all seem to be HP. I have not seen a single example or mention of a 198 MP.

What does the white badge on the ref 5 stand for? Did Italian teams get a white badge for winning a cup competition or is it just to replicate the club badge? I assume the team is meant to be Lazio or Napoli.

With regards to ref 5 with badge, it’s a Lazio team of the Special coloured box from Parodi (produced for the italian market in the early 80’s).

Thank you.

I am pretty certain the box set was originally sold in Uk and that these are the original teams. I think the set dates about 1983 - 85. From what i understand it was donated to London Fire Brigade charity and sold at one of their fund raising fairs.
I am guessing these were two discontinued teams from old catalogues and were placed in box sets to use up remaining stock. Just a shame the teams were not complete.
