1966 World Cup Mexico Team

Post by shamie »

These Mexicans are looking a bit sorry for themselves.

I wanted to 'spruce' them up a bit. Any advice? Is that green still available?

All the best.

As an original, surely it would lose value if it were to be spruced up?

I've got several well-worn teams and think they have a really authentic look.

You'd have to fake the green as the paints are probably lead based and you don't really get that type of cover with normal paints.
I'd leave em as they are.
Current spares: Brescia x2 light blue inner, white outer, PMs please if you can help.
