query reg club edition box set

Post by Ash70 »

When i was a wee boy, I got my first subbuteo in the mid to late 70's. The one that looked like this...

It most certainly was the one with cardboard interior. It had H/W players & plastic rod goalies.

Now my question is this.... did these sets always come with a red and blue team? I ask, as I'm fairly certain one the teams was a ref 26.

I'm sure I wouldn't have bought this team separately. As for the other team in the set, I'm not sure, although I do have a few individual players with sky discs/claret bases. No idea of the team as they've been painted over numerous times. Thinking back, on the rare occasions when i was taken to a toy shop, it would have been scottish teams i would've bought.

I realise the mind can play tricks over time and I could be mistaken, but it would be interesting to know if odd teams were released in the sets.

I had this edition as my first set - either Christmas 78 or 79. Mine had a polystyrene interior and two zombie teams, ref 002 and 140 (Marseille) bizarrely.
Also, the goalkeepers provided were both crouching which disappointed me at the time albeit I did have a couple of the standard boxed teams as well so just used the diving keepers out of those

Ooh, crouching goalies. Forgot about those. I'm thinking that's probably what i had. I know for sure, my big cousins' Football Express set had that style of goalie. We played it a lot when I went for visits.

The toy shops that i was taken into, had a mix of heavyweights and zombies as seperate teams. Lightweights were my wee brothers time.
