2013windsurfer1975

A quick heads up to block this Italian buyer. He purchased 3 separate items from me not great value but totalled around £30. The two most expensive packages never arrived but the cheapest did. Either he has an expert thieving postman or he is a thieving bar steward himself. I fancy the latter.

Boils my hiss things like that Mark.

That's how MANY Subbuteo teams were put together by SSG and sent to shops.

If a collector wants all the same lettering, then they should ask the seller BEFORE buying. Same goes for rattlers.

Waste of peoples time and energy.

What's worse....an Original Team produced by SSG and sold with various base lettering and rattlers...or a team put together from spares, with all the same base lettering? Mental when you think about it. Some collectors would want the latter lol madness

It does seem to be an Italian thing.

I put it down to lack of knowledge and some being 'particular' in their likes Mark.

Lack of knowledge I can understand...so I don't mind educating. We've all been there and continue to learn new things.
However...some Italian collectors are knowledgeable, but are picky in their tastes. If that's the case, then they should be more diligent in their asking of questions when buying a team imo. If a team came with rattles and different inners, you can't decide you don't like it, because that's how the team was produced by SSG.

That's a very good price for that team with ref sticker even if made up of two imo.
