Its an impossible question to answer, how could anyone ever know how many still exist or are even available.
I still believe there mocs stored away that people are just unaware that they are even around them. Just sitting waiting to be found in a loft or even in storage in old shops forgotten about.
I know this find isn't Star Wars but look what was hidden unknown for years in a loft.
Wouldn't it be great to find something like this or even better vintage Star Wars!https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&sourc ... 3L&cf=1
Seeing that baby grappling and manhandling that mint Subbuteo box is making me cringe.
The damage.... the damage
It's funny, that.
I unearthed my childhood Subbuteo teams from the loft amongst other things.
Whilst there may not be a stash of carded figures waiting to be uncovered, I do think there's a tonne of loose vintage tucked up in lofts all over the country.
These bring back mixed memories for me, as I was one of the victims of “child labour”
that used to paint these back in the 70’s.
My mother, my brother and I used to sit at the kitchen table painting bags of these things.
I remember that the ones with more than one shirt colour paid more than the one colour ones!
I don’t remember how much we got paid but it certainly wasn’t enough to retire om!
I assume that this was a bery local thing, as Subbuteo was a very local business, thanks for posting, memories came flooding back.
Is there anyone else out there that did this?
