Soccerette (3D players)
No, unfortunately not the wannabe wag parading her plastic breasts around the Soccer AM studio, but a football game from the 1950's played using magnetic poles on a large wooden pitch. The game contains possibly the campest footballing pose ever created.
The game was available in 2,3,5 and 11 a side versions.
The one to really look out for contains flat celluloid players
A long running game that was produced in many different sizes and types of sets. The pictures show various versions of this game.
Oh dear! I really cannot see how anyone could possibly design and approve a player figure looking like the one on the right!
The goals are extremely well made with real net and clip into the space in the wooden pitch surround.
A whole team prepare for the latest edition of 'mince for Britain'.
Playing the game
The figures are controlled using rods held under the pitch with magnets on the end.
Slightly prone to overclaim I believe.
Some sets came complete with corner flags. Very rare to find them now.
Pitches were made in different colours and sizes. The brown pitches are the most striking.
