Re: Woolworths Special Buy 99p 8 packs

Also Jamie not sure if you missed this part of Laurence's research, but it has been identified that baggies within some suspect 8 packs were Kenner ones with the Kenner branding removed. This was at a time when Palitoy were putting Taiwan figures on Hong Kong cards with early ESB double stem or lat...

Re: Woolworths Special Buy 99p 8 packs

Thank you all for the extra information. Please understand I’m not interested in legitimising these items. I’m trying to work out where they originated from. The receipt is a real head scratcher and I will attempt to reach out to Kevin, even though he seems unwilling to participate to date for reaso...

Re: Woolworths Special Buy 99p 8 packs

Ok Ben, while you search eBay for Woolworth receipts and follow the line that Jeff purchased, or produced one, and sealed it in a single multipack, I will reach out to Kevin and see if we can have a clearer look at the graded item. Lawrence, why was Kevin’s graded multipacks omitted from your invest...

Is there anyway of reaching out to Kevin to see clearer pics of the item?

Re: Woolworths Special Buy 99p 8 packs

More info just arrived. This is a pack from the box pictured previously (you can se it in the top left corner). The pack was sold to Kevin Bleso about 5 years ago (and graded) What is really interesting is the receipt which is sealed in the pack. You can clearly see the postcode NW1 6JL which, when ...

Re: Woolworths Special Buy 99p 8 packs

Trying to find evidence of where suspect items originated from although I already suspect I am massively wasting my time whatever the outcome. Jeff always maintained these were a loft find. Sad to see this picture so quickly dismissed. I guess that’s the state of the hobby right now and why I am so ...

Re: Woolworths Special Buy 99p 8 packs

The photograph was taken from an old works camera which Jeff used for surveys. This is a copy which was located in Jeff’s paperwork (there’s tons of papers) The find was in a bungalow in Arboufield nr Reading which was a probate. The loft was to be cleared for woodworm treatment. Everything in it be...

Re: Woolworths Special Buy 99p 8 packs

Interesting photo. Taken June 2001....Jeff Glanville's loft find. I have known of this photo's existence for some time and this is the first opportunity I have had to see the evidence for myself.
