A stunningly original game with wooden players, looks homemade but was produced for retail sale.

Hipp Hipp Hurra

Very similar to Tipp Kick but made to a very high standard in wood.

Seamor Club Football table soccer game

What a find, this magnificent old game is beautifully made and there is absolutely no mention of it to be found anywhere online - do you know anything about it?

This coin is one issued as part of the 1969 Traum Elf set by Shell in Germany.


All four different sets of the classic Pepy's card game are available to buy.

A superb collectable set of medallions, 36 in total with collectors folder. Includes the impossible to find 'France Winners' medallion.

Supremos 1967

A very rare board game by Daneham Cottage Products, full of colour and nice designs offering the usual mix of money, incident cards, player cards and dice. Well worth a look.


Peter Barnes Foldaway football game

A newly aquired little gem of a game that I had not heard of before. Great to play, nicely designed and complete with spinner!

 Mini-Soccer early football board game desperately wanted!

Top price paid for this superb 1950s football game with large cloth pitch.

 Football coin and medallions collections

 As I approach fifty different sets of collectable football coins it is time to start building my site pages to catalogue them. Also includes similar collectable sets that are not coins.

Johnny Hot Shot painted figures

Just take a look at this superb outdoor game version of Johnny Hot Shot including wonderfully painted figures. Thank you to Paul from Liverpool for sharing his wonderful creations.

Simple Soccer

A recent game from 2010 that shows just what can be achieved with some design skills and a colour printer. Fabulous looking game with dozens of colour team sheets.

Stanmath, what a game!

Fabulous 1950s football game that combines Subbuteo and Tidleywinks on a baize pitch. Endorsed by Sir Stanley of course. Great game, crap name!

Soccerette Junior

The 'starter set' for the long running Soccerette series of magnetic football games. This set has a major flaw in that the pitch was made of cardboard which warps over time.


A wooden magnetic game from Czechoslovakia. Extremely original and lovely figures!


Highly original 1950s game by Spears that promises a lot but delivers figures that are impossible to play with!

Kika Goal

Interesting 1950s forerunner to the Striker series of games. Superbly designed box and with keepers whose handles are a mechanical marvel!

The Bandai mechanical kicking footballer

Huge and rather splendid mechanical kicking footballer by Bandai. Come and take a look by clicking on the photo.

Incredibly rare Newrugger game made by Newfooty

What am I doing including an egg chasing game on this footballing temple? Newrugger was a short lived game made by Newfooty and comes on a double sided pitch with 'Socrates' on the other side. Click the image to find out more.

Fabulous 1960's footballer key chains shop display

We all played this as kids but this is the original pre-production prototype of the game - complete with pen top counters!

The top of the range battery operated version of Kay's classic bagatelle game. This version is totally unused and sealed.

FKS Soccer Stars trump cards - set 2!

Top Soccer

An unusual game created to showcase the classic pen top figures from the 1970s. Eight a side and incredibly rare. It's my ball and I'm going home if you don't let me win!!

Europa Cup

A large format wooden stadium with moulded plastic players that revolve on spindles. Possibly Italian, any information on this game would be most welcome.

Johnny's back!

Whenever the site sells a Johnny Hotshot set it's like losing a brother (literally as my brother is called Johnny!). I am pleased to say that I currently have a couple of sets and a few spares on offer.

Can you identify these mystery cereal premium figures?

Possibly Kelloggs or Shredded Wheat. There are a couple of other poses too. All help gratefully received.

Admire the all conquering Jesmond Rovers 1951 squad and their legendary 10-3 win over the mighty Preston. W McGow scored six of the goals (the big goalhanger!)
