Whoops! Coleco Player Decals: The Buffalo Sabres - The Forgotten Team

No photoshop yet, so whoever wants the sabres has to take the whole sheet. Big download, but who cares. Enjoy! Sorry for fergettin' them.



  1. Awesome! Thanks!

    Do you know if Coleco made the white unis for these teams too? Mine comes with the Flyers and Islanders in their respective dark unis, which, of course, they wouldn't both wear at the same time. What I'd ideally like to do is get the Oilers in their whites to go with the Islanders in their blues. (Hearkens back to those amazing back-to-back finals from the mid-80s. And the same would hold true for the Oilers in their whites vs the Flyers in their orange.)

    On a related note, how truly rare are a lot of the 70s and 80s teams that are being sold on eBay? I've not been seeing too many auctions for just the plastic pieces, so I've been tempted to buy ones with the decal attached and just remove them. But I'd feel like a twit if people are actively collecting those old teams and I'd be defacing something that another person would really value.

  2. I haven't seen any white jerseys.

    As for rarity, I wouldn't DARE pay more than 10 bucks for a team of blank players, and I wouldn't pay ANYTHING for the decals, given some guy is giving them away... oh right. That's ME. :D

  3. Those old teams only have the value that is placed upon them by sellers. They are very common. If people wanted them that bad, they'd outbid you on the auction. :D

  4. Thanks for the patterns and the advice. Let me know if you'd be interested in seeing the customs I've developed. I'm not a graphic artist, but I think they've turned out nicely. I've done the modern Pens and Canucks and even the Coyotes.

  5. Would love to. I can post them here if you like. I think you can contact me here through my profile.

  6. OK. I sent them to the Web page you listed under "Contact" in your profile. If you need me to send somewhere else, just let me know. As for posting them, you're welcome to do so if you like them. You might need to re-size them so that they're print-ready though. I remember that you did that with your scans, and I don't think I checked that before saving my files.
