Re: Charity shop find this morning :)

The effort I have to put in now to find bargains hardly seems worth it, so I have just effectively stopped buying. About fifteen years ago I picked up a early bird certificate for £50, I could buy 12 backs for £50-£100 and POTF figures about the same. Mini-rigs boxed were about a tenner, and a lot ...

Re: Charity shop find this morning :)

Re: Charity shop find this morning :)

Re: Whats inspired recent influx of new members?

It's essential for the forum to have new members join, keeps it fresh and keeps it going, having new people to interact with is great for the hobby and the wider community. I really would recommend you attend one or two events this year, and introduce yourself. I've made some really great friends ov...

Re: Information needed on UK Topps Bubblegum cards

Topps also released the 1st series of Candy Heads in the UK, in the red box, which featured a sticker '15p' over the US price label.
