There was something unique and romantic about growing up and playing in the 60s and 70s that was never recaptured by other generations. Perhaps we didn't expect much.

Always a Batman fan after the sensational Adam West in the 60s TV series. I got plenty of fun out of this corgi set until the Batman figure fell victim to mum's vacuum cleaner. Robin couldn't quite step up to the plate after that. This great picture courtesy of www.qualitydiecasttoys.com

VINTAGE MATTEL TALKING MAJOR MATT MASON MIB SEALED RARE

Major Matt Mason. I saw this in the window of a hardware store in St Mary's Road Walthamstow and had to have it. It was a bit strange not to see it in the usual toy shops but I was glad to get it for Christmas. I was completely unaware there was a complete Matt Mason world out there.

Anyone that had this game will always remember just how long it took to smooth out the crease in the pitch. Sometimes you could take advantage of the "local curve" to beat an unsuspecting opponent. Looking back on the size of the goal keepers it's a surprise that any goals were actually scored.

Amazingly each Super Striker player seemed to have a different characteristic and flair about them. I gave each of mine names but can only recall two. One was "Paddy" after Graham Paddon because he had the best shot and another was "Redknee" as he had red paint on his knee. Imaginative I know but he was the best player until an unfortunate accident involving being stepped on limited his career.
