I'm sure these will divide opinion Confused

Rescued from Ebay last week, I really like them and they are quite unique.

How funny wdy11
Mine are King, Keane, Defoe, Robinson & Lennon.
I bought a small bundle of stuff that I didn't want (flags etc) to get the dolls and will sell the rest to make my purchase of the dolls zero.


JimLFC - i agree, I had no idea that Paul Robinson and Jermain Defoe were twins!!

I uploaded this image to my flickr site in 2009 and the caption today would be:

"Soon there will be none!" not to difficult to work out especially after his display at the Emirates today where had he not been so greedy we could have been in a winning position.

These are great, who cares if they look like The Drifters.

Very Happy

No seriously, I like them, they're very quirky.
I'm not fussed on the rears, would've looked better left blank I feel, but the fronts (and that's the main bit, let's be honest) are great.

Lovely little ornamental.

I recently saw a friend post a set of Russian dolls he'd purchased in Budapest for a laugh: they were based on middle eastern 'leaders', with Saddam hosting Bin Laden, who contained a young looking Ayotollah Khomeini, then Yasser Arafat, who inevitably had in him... a banana.

These are my Palace ones



Jedinak and Ledley should have had big beards at the time, and Speroni (goalkeeper) should be wearing a different colour shirt to red and blue stripes, but its not the end of the world.

I got them signed myself by waiting by the players car park before home games, in the days before the team arrived by coach and don't sign anything now Sad

I also have an early 2000's Palace set, and a Russia 2018 (World Cup) set.

There is no such thing as too much football memorabilia or merch in my opinion.

Collect what you enjoy!
