Can't get my head round this...

....advertised as 'Customised'....in other words, overpainted teams. Yet making silly money for what it is...

Because, quite simply, some buyers couldn't care less who the hell's painted these teams.

Seems way over the top but there are 73 players. May be the catalogue is valuable, not seen it before.

Think it's been suggested before that some collectors don't worry about who's painted the teams, as long as they cover the ref's in their collection...all very strange imo.

The Catalogue is common Gully...came in most French Display Editions...plenty of them about if you know where to look. Probably worth between £5 and £10.

I know a lot of Italian collectors have been after spares for Paris FC, but the bidding is way OTT, unless its shill bidding
