£ 92 for a FE box and 5 Italy ref 166 spares ? Something wrong, or not ?

Never bought a football express team, even though I did actually own a football express. Back in the day, I much preferred to buy a full team. That's probably why they're not too common, I suppose. The goalies look good, though.

I wonder if the winner of the auction realises that they're buying half a reference 166 in a football express team box. :-k
Maybe another one of these will turn up soon with the other five figures. :idea:

We can see that only two bidders with very few feedbacks did the race for that team (the third bidder stopped at 12 pounds). Maybe we are in front of a couple of beginners (we all have been) and they will learn from that, maybe we are in front of fake bidders and we will see the team soon relisted (but why?), or maybe that team does have some secret rarity that we are not allowed to know...

Did the 166 ever turn up as one of the two teams that came with the Football Express box set ?? My set came complete with a reference 1 (moulded) and a 106 (classic heavyweight).

HW106s – and HW70s – seem to pop up fairly often in FE teams.

I don't know enough about them to have any idea why ...

I opened my Football Express and saw that one of the teams was a 106; what a bl@@dy disappointment. Dull as dishwater. I did use that FE team a hell of a lot over the following years, though.

What price now for a mint 106 in a reffed longbox ??
