Adverts on this board

I realise that it’s probably an economic necessity to have adverts on the site to help pay for it but do we have to have so many. I find it difficult to follow a thread when adverts appear between every post.

Re: Ref. 294 Newell's Old Boys Machine Printed Version

collecting as an investment is very difficult. I doubt my collection of over 400 llwteams is worth anything like what I have paid for the teams. Right now rare lw teams do seem to be getting more expensive but I think the peak may not be far away. We are all getting older and the amount of cash we h...

Re: Ref. 294 Newell's Old Boys Machine Printed Version

I'm no expert but that label would have me worried. New Wells Old Boys.? Would definitely do some research before parting with that sort of money. However just now looked at Mingardo's website and the label does appear to be genuine http://www.mingardo.it/images/Collezione/LW/201%20-%20300/294%20-%2...

Re: Collecting lw’s ct100 or 63000?

Don't think there is a book that details every kit however a good website is http://www.mingardo.it/Start%20Galleria.htm
And http://www.mingardo.it/Rating%20LW.htm
You can also pick up old catalogues for a few pounds on eBay.

Re: Collecting lw’s ct100 or 63000?

He got his first teams around 1986 and they were the teams in the a5 baize boxes. Then in around 1990 Subutteo introduced the "John Jensen " boxes. M...

Re: COLLECTERS FAIR 20TH MAY

This is one event I always try to get to even though it's a 200 mile round trip.
If you know what you want and If you want to save on postage you can always order from Subbuteoworld and then pick up at the fair.
