Hey Guys

I have been thinking about this for some time now. All most all the Clipper and German ESB moc's i have seen all have nice bobbels and the cards always look nice .

I have only seen one beater Clipper moc . So i have been thinking . Did "all" the moc's come from a wearehouse find or something like that ? Seems ord that a small amount of the moc's excist and almost all are in so good shape .

And another thing , what's with the hand written "7" on tha back of the Clipper Card ? It is on all the figures that have the "7" in it's number like 7 and 17 etc .


Here is my Clipper WBG

I'll look when I get home about the 7. I've never noticed it before.

As for condition, I know one seller who had an amazing supply of them, and all in mint condition. I always assumed it was old stock that was uncovered.

Most of them comes from Toy Toni. (www.toytoni.com). A UK guy that made some kind of warehouse find... Palitoy was in charge of making the ESB line of Clipper and German Parker action figures. All these blister were made in UK.

What JC said. I'm pretty sure Toni had a ton of really nice Clipper's. The German General Mills, I'm not sure how much Toni had, but it was probably the same amount.

I have never heard of the 7 on the back of them. Do you have a pic of it?

Thanks guys.

So that was what i was thinking . Would have been od if all the moc's where that nice if they came from shops .

About the 7'S on the back on the Clipper moc . All the numbers where 7 is in like 7,17,27 and 37 have the 7 hand written .
Under the picture all the 7 are again hand written .

Well all 7's but not the FX-7 .

Bad pictures i know , but take a look .

Are you referring to the fact that they have the slash through the middle? I do have that. I know that style of 7 is used in some courntries so perhaps they changed the typeset to reflect that.

Yes John , it is that 7 with the slash . But why did they not change on FX-7 then ?
