Super 14 Bluebird cards

    I've just bought a few bags of these from the supermarket and I wanted to see what the Super 14 cards were that they are giving away with the chips.

    They appear to be made from the same kind of plastic that credit cards are, with a glossy pic of a player and a blurb on the back about them. Each player has a 'catchphrase' which kind of describes them in a general way. For example Richie McCaw is 'Mr Indispensible', whilst Brendon Leonard is described as an 'Energy Overload'.

    There's 50 in the set, presumably 10 from each of the NZ Super 14 unions. I've got five of these so far and they are:

    Richie McCaw - Mr Indispensible
    Dan Carter - Playmaker Supreme
    Leon MacDonald - Class Act
    Corey Flynn - Mainland Marauder
    Brendon Leonard - Energy Overload
    James Wilson - Fast Finisher

    I'll add to this as I collect these and will put up images soon. If anyone else from New Zealand on forum is collecting these, I'd be keen to swap some when I start getting doubles. It's a bit of a rip-off getting only one per pack, although these things probably cost more to produce than your average card.

    So, anyone else getting these and if so, can you get them in the smaller sized, cheaper packs?

    These are just in the main brand of Bluebird chips. I thought "ahh, I'll get one, but I bet they're lame" and then I saw how pretty cool they looked. Will post an image when I put my wee girl to bed.

    Oddbods were the ****.

    They were massive at school, and I remember everyone trying to steal them from the class nerd who had the whole set. Lol, those were the days.

    And they glowed when you focused them under a light and a secret picture showed up :lol: . Classic!

    Does anyone have them? or is anyone collecting them? I only know of the New Zealand cards from the Bluebird chip packets. I have about 15 or so, but there is like 100 in the set (50 normal and 50 gold) i doubt very much that i will get a whole set.



    If anyone (in new zealand) eats these chips and is willing to part with the cards i would buy them off you, at a fair rate of course.



    Is there any other super 14 cards/collectables out there for the aussies or the south african teams? I would be keen to get anything of theirs as well.



    I like the bluebird cards, they are smaller than normal cards, but they pretty good. Nice facts etc on them.

    Please help me complete it! I've noticed a few oddities... Nick Evans, Tony Woodcock, Jono Gibbes and a few others aren't in any of the teams... Strange. I can imagine Evans isn't on any because he's new to the Blues so they didn't have any pictures :p

    BTW, appaerently Chris King is extremely rare! Take a look on TradeMe.

    Craig told me today King apparently sold for about $40 on trademe. I've only got one - Ben Atiga (Blues). Can't remember anything about it, is sitting on desk at work :p

    I have really neglected this thread, lol. I never posted up any pics as I thought no-one was interested.

    I have got 48/50 with Masaga and King to go. I know King is hard to get, but I emailed Bluebird and they are correcting their "error", by sending out extra Chris King's in two weeks. People who are paying the world on Trade Me are going to feel very foolish.

    The only card worth paying more for is Callum Bruce, an error card, mistakenly printed as number 33 and put out for the first two weeks. They were not made aware of his transfer to the Chiefs by the NZRFU till after the last minute. Keep your eyes peeled.

    Golds? I'm not going to waste my life getting all those, but I have 13 out of 50 right now.

    Lastly, here are my swaps.

    Ben Atiga, Isa Nacewa, Jerome Kaino, Rudi Wulf, Troy Flavell, Liam Messam, Malili Muliaina, Sitiveni Sivivatu, Sosene Anesi, Stephen Donald, Andrew Ellis, Corey Flynn, Dan Carter (x2), Kieran Read, Aaron Bancroft, Craig Newby, James Wilson, Jimmy Cowan (x2), Andrew Hore, Chris Masoe, Conrad Smith, Hosea Gear, Jerry Collins, Rodney So'oialo.

    Anyone got anything I need, lol ?!

    Hows the teeth getting through all those salted chips? ;)

    A lot of giving them away. Dips in the weekend for the guys and a few making their way to the bins. Plus I've been fortunate to get some sort after ones from Trade Me, both swapping and buying.

    I swapped a Jason Eaton for 5 cards I needed. It's not the teeth with chips, it's the heart. Not great for the ticker.
     
  18. ahh, these remind me of pokemon cards...with doubles etc.. :unsure:

    It's complete! Another mistake they've inadvertedly made is (also) within the Highlanders. If you look at the order of (almost) all cards it goes by their first name. Have a look at 36, 37 and 38. They're sort of out of order :p
