History of Subbuteo:

Peter Upton’s Subbuteo tribute
This website was first set up in 1999 (and looks as antique as this sounds!), because “there seemed so little Subbuteo information available on the internet.” Peter Upton’s site has become a comprehensive list of all the Subbuteo items produced from 1947 to date.
