Giuseppe's collection of NASL teams are the bomb! Kinda makes me turn every shade of green.
Well done, GM.
Ciao!

Bit of a bump on this thread after many years! :)

Great collection of NASL teams Mahler, they are among my favourite Lightweights too.

My Toronto Blizzard is also handpainted and genuine. Only other hp I heard was the San Jose Earthquakes.

Spotted a Minnesota Kicks went for £240 on ebay last month!

I'm glad that it got bumped Steve...as you asked about LW's being HP.

You probably already know this, but for anyone who doesn't...look at the 1985 Italian Catalogue.
You will be amazed at what teams SSG/Parodi Handpainted.

I'm guessing they painted them all at some point or other.

They did, too, mate. Ian, did Parodi do the old NASL teams as well?
How about them transparent dangling carrots
How about that ever elusive kudo

Cracking Steve lad
It all seems very easy, this revolution game
But when you start to really play things won't be quite the same
Your intellectual theories on how it's going to be
Don't seem to take into account the true reality

Anyone on here manage to get all the 17 NASL teams?

Personally I've never seen a San Jose or an Los Angeles up for sale in my 20 + years of collecting LW's.
