Wow.

If I had gotten any ONE of those beauties in a joblot like that i would have been over the moon. But a haul like that......opening box after box and discovering what was inside....well i think it would have been too much for me Skell tbh. Did you know what you were getting when you bought the 'lot?

If i was you i would buy a lottery ticket this weekend for good measure.'
I did roughly but the 88 and 112 turned up as a bonus in a European cup box and all the other teams and boxes were mixed up aswell but it was a pleasure sorting them all out.

What a result!

When a deal comes off like that, makes all the effort that goes into finding teams worth while.

as an aside why did Borussia M never come on green/black combo bases like the 78's?

Dunno - it'd've looked great.

Maybe they just thought white as the dominant colour of the strip. :cry:

I've had it on that base combo Mark...it looked superb. But that's the only time I've seen it...a one off. Hopefully there are more out there. Like you say though, it should have been standard.

I was thinking how strange is this bulk of teams...
There are:
5 Scottish and it is normal because , if I remember correctly the box come from Scotland.
2 Italian, not very important teams, always in second and third division.
2 International , ok for ref 175 that was the "new" team from the '74 WC but Czechoslovakia ????
1 important Deutch team from the age that arrived to the Champion Cup Final
1 of each from Austria, Switzerland, Holland championship , but no of them famous enough

Probably he loved the shirt more than the teams....
