Probably less than £20. Have a look on eBay there are plenty for sale.

As Gully said, you'll be lucky to get £20 on eBay.

Look at the other Continental Club sets on offer and be honest with yourself in you comparison with their condition and that of your set.

There's a lot about and as a result dont fetch good prices.

I have 3 or 4 sets which i have had on ebay a few times and taken to Renishaw several times and never sold.

There doesnt seem to be a big demand for box sets in general , even the larger floodlighting sets. I find it's really only the HW World Cup and of course the Munich sets that attract interest.

Which is the reason why I've been selling groups of 40 x figures from these boxed sets for a couple of years now – and turf the green boxes into the bin :twisted:

Good luck with that one.

Ebayers won't be bothered about that. If you are wanting a generous buyer you'll probably have more chance finding one at a charity dinner.

Age and charity, will not up the price, although it is over 40 years old, it is the most common item from that era, and they can be very hard to sell as all existing collectors have several, your best bet is Buy It Now on ebay at about £20, you will do well to get much more on auction right now
