Re: A Solo Subbuteo Blog

More solo goalies illustrated on the newly uploaded December edition of Table Football Monthly. They look like an excellent idea to me.

Re: How sought after is the Cricket Fence?

The box sleeve looks in good nick. Still an awful lot of money, though.

Re: A Solo Subbuteo Blog

There's a workable solution, to the solo goalkeeping problem, illustrated in one of the episodes of Table Football Monthly.
Can't remember which episode, though.

Re: Southampton HW 350 ?

It's also got a £1.70 price sticker attached to the box.
Were Heavies ever sold r.r.p. at this price ??
Certainly lightweights were.

Re: Southampton HW 350 ?

I'd expect a genuine reference 350 (if one exists at such a high reference nunber) to sell for 300+. So, somebody's either bought a super, super rare HW team for the princely sum of 145 quid or they've bought a repainted team from "faddes". I'm sure I've heard that name mentioned before. :...

Re: ycfcfan

Do you believe this team is genuine? This one has the same issue I pointed out before, where there appears to be two different shades of green on the collar. Do you think was just a case of the outworker not mixing the paint properly, so that the paint goes semi-transparent? The paint on the 152 lo...

Re: Is The Scene Dead?

I'm not on Facebook either. A lot of photos have disappeared from this site over the last couple of years which kinda spoils it a bit. Only the other day, I looked at a particular reference number in the classic heavyweights section and 3/4's of the reference photos weren't there anymore. A lot of t...

Re: ycfcfan

Some of "Spinbowler's" teams look ok, some look a bit dodgy. He could do with revising the item description for this particular ref 152 that's on ebay at the moment. It's not "mint" as he states. There's 1 reglue, bottom left. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Subbuteo-Bulgaria-Named-Bo...

One or two of the shorter Subbuteo figures in there. These figures turn up fairly regularly in the 102.

Re: Answers on a postcard.

Cannot recall ever seeing a genuine reference sticker on any of these rare teams from this part of the UK. Anybody could replicate the 216, themselves, on these bases for about 25 quid with a reference 6 and a couple of tins of Humbrol paint. Or maybe commission Calum to do a lovely 216 on Santiago's.

I can't be sure 'cos I'm looking at it on my mobile. :?

By "written", I mean "in the distant past, it's been rubbed out and then it's left an imprint".
