For your consideration:



Looking for HWs (1-190): Just a quirky base combo or two + anything that will improve the quality of the collection
(200+): 213, 220, 223, 224, 229, 230, 233, 235, 237-240, 242-245, 247, 254, 256, 259, 264, 274-276, 279-280, 282-283, 285, 289, 291-293, 308, 311, 323+

Just spotted another one like it on the Vintage Subbuteo site:

http://www.vintagesubbuteo.com/catalogo/index1eng.php?start=26&finish=50

Mine has brown hair/boots (quite rare in itself for a HW31), plus the white hoop on the socks has been painted.

Odd one that Ian. Certainly doesn't look like a repaint. I really don't know which Blackburn kit it is meant to represent though? Was the team in a reffed box? Presuming it was also a splash or later box too.

From the photo i would say it's a variant.

Got it in a joblot - the kind of selection that arrives with West Ham (HW7) in a HW25 box, etc., etc..

This one was in a 'short splasher' with no reference sticker. Pretty sure there has never been a reference sticker on the box (no hint of it, at either end) ... but there is the glue residue from a narrow taped label along the bottom of one end (a la 'West Ham' on the HW209).

76-7 Rovers kit is the closest Ian...Blue/White collars but Red short stripe..should really have Red on the socks too but there again who gives a flying whatsit nobody in Blackburn could afford to buy one anyway and there isn't room in their rat infested slums to set up a pitch.....

Thanks, Ian and Ralph.

I must look out for an actual photo of that Blackburn strip ... though obviously I'll not be tip-toeing round the "rat-infested slums" to get it Very Happy Shocked Laughing

maybe someone painted it from home back in the day as opposed to a recent repaint job?

colours look ok though.
