Good spot Mark.

I must admit I have already put small bids on a couple of his items on the basis they were repaints.

He's got some decent looking teams on there. Trouble is, they're all repaints and he's intentionally not declaring that in the description. Also, not enough photos, no close ups and fake reference stickers all help to raise the suspicions.

Be interesting to see the prices that some of these teams achieve.

You've spotted the tell tale signs there Paul.

For me I am always sceptical when a seller is selling multiple rare/desirable teams at the same time. No matter how 'good' the teams may look.

a 172, 195, 54 1st version , 126 , 288, 95 176, 89, 90, 120 , 216 and a 273 in one go.................hmmmm

That's exactly like my local bus service, Ian. :D
Well, up until 6pm; then they're every half an hour. :?



The 320, a.k.a. the 54 1st version, has got to be a candidate for "the most obvious repaint in the entire history of repainted teams on ebay".

oh I have seen much worse than that on Ebay.

tbh these teams are half decent. Looking at the way the bids are increasing there are some out there who think they are good. As has been discussed many times on this forum it is not clear if the bidders actually realise what they are bidding or if they actually care. It seems some will pay a premium for a particular reference number whether its original or not just to have it.

So many people still under a spell of Subbuteo cheaters like this one. I am outraged. :evil:

Any links to this auction?

I missed it :)

In a 'former life,' Catsmad was suspected of a huge amount of mysterious bidding on his own auctions.

Very little bidding in the last couple of hours. That may well be the case with this auction.
