Re: Shockingly Bad Repaint Now at 34 Quid!

the Brum 101 was a ref 2....you can see where the blue is trying to bleed through the centre stripe Aren't a lot of ref 101's like that though? I'll have to check mine when I've got a minute. I'm not sure it would be worth turning a Ref 2 into a ref 101 tbh. By the time you've sourced an empty refe...

Re: Shockingly Bad Repaint Now at 34 Quid!

Has anybody actually sent this guy a message on ebay and challenged him on the obvious 55 repaint? See what he says? I’ve talked myself into it. I’ll message him, as my Aussie mate would say: “just for sh*ts and giggles”. I’m guessing he’ll still see the auction through and take his chances but you...

Re: Shockingly Bad Repaint Now at 34 Quid!

On the subject of mixtures of brown / black hair / boots in the same team, I had the same issue with a ref 51 which I posted pics of on here years ago. Sadly none of my old pics are visible on the forum anymore. They must have been lost in an update and I don’t have them anymore. The mods say there’...

Re: Shockingly Bad Repaint Now at 34 Quid!

Has anybody actually sent this guy a message on ebay and challenged him on the obvious 55 repaint? See what he says? I thought about it. So if the bloke had set a starting price of 30 quid and was wondering why no one had bid, I might have messaged him to save him from wasting his time but, flamin ...

Re: Shockingly Bad Repaint Now at 34 Quid!

All the other teams that the seller has on ebay look ok for the most part. Trouble is, when you see one team that's obviously a repaint, à la the 55/211, then it arouses some suspicion about the rest of them. All the reference stickers are ok. A few of the team's goalkeepers (I haven't checked ever...

Re: Shockingly Bad Repaint Now at 34 Quid!

I bought a reference 9, back in the early 80's from Suggs in Sheffield (I still have it), which has 1 inner glued in upside down, so it did happen now and then towards the end of the HW run. I've seen it on a few other later teams as well. Actually, when I bring the pictures up on the ebay phone ap...

Re: Shockingly Bad Repaint Now at 34 Quid!

Agreed. Any thoughts on the other teams they are selling? At first glance they look decent, and all in referenced boxes but with a closer look there are some issues. Some of the base inners look very ill-fitting and on the ref 203 Watford and 322 Iran they appear to be upside down. Either that, or t...

Shockingly Bad Repaint Now at 34 Quid!

I don't know what kind of Lockdown Fever is happening on eBay right now. You will never spot an easier fake than this 'Ref 55 Anderlecht': https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-Subbuteo-Team-Ref-55-C-100-Anderlecht-Heavyweight-H-W/293590047339?hash=item445b549a6b:g:oJsAAOSwztReyWIY It's obviously a rep...

Re: Help Required. HW team identification ?

A ton - and more. I didn't notice what cityfan pointed out - you managed to bag a HW317 on reverse bases! Excellent! I didn't notice that either! Don't think I've ever seen a reverse base 317, except for yours in the 'Reference Photo' section, Ian. Agreed the 4 genuine teams could easily fetch 120 ...

Re: Help Required. HW team identification ?

Agree, the 57, 80 and 85 look pristine, especially the 57.

The blue looks very dark on the Scotland though. Could it be a Ref 44 with overpainted socks and added trim?

Re: Help Required. HW team identification ?

Hi, Pretty sure it's a Ref 80, Burnley 2nd. Google 'Peter Upton Subbuteo' and visit that site. It will help in identifying & authenticating teams and other Subbuteo items. It's also a great read on the history of the hobby. The Celtic Dreams Subbuteo site is also good as it has clickable photos of H...

Re: A few teams and a question...

The teams were painted in the following order:

1. Stoke 3rd kit (yellow one)
2. Stoke Away
3. Man U Away (black shorts)
4. Man U Away (white shorts)
5. Sheff U Away

Looking at them all together I can kind of see a progression.

Maybe a less tentative, slightly more confident brush stroke.

Re: A few teams and a question...

The one that looks like Man Utd 2nd is Sant Angelo. Amazing how many Admiral kits keep turning up on different teams :-) Funny you should mention Man U 2nd (Ref 325), as I's say this was maybe the most difficult strip I've ever painted (at least from those that exist within the Subbuteo range). Obv...
