Sainsburys 'Create The World' Lego Card Collection
« on: June 03, 2017, 09:51:47 AM »
Hi all,
I was wondering if anybody else is collecting these cards? They are being given away at present, one pack of four cards for every 10 you spend. These are in yellow packets, but you can also buy individual packs of four cards at fifty pence a packet, and these are in red packs. There are 140 cards to collect, and they can be corner mounted (sacrilege!) into a special album, which can be purchased for 2. Anyway, the point I wish to make is make sure when you have swaps to check the card backs, as there can be variants. The most different backs I have seen so far is four of a single card. Probably not important to most collectors, but might be to some. And if you are not saving them, but have some to dispose of.........!

That's interesting to know so thanks for the info.  My nearest Sainsburys is several hundred miles away but I'm sure other people will be collecing them.  Hopefully someone will have some spares for you.

My neighbour shops at Sainsburys and happened to mention it a week or two ago.
When I asked if he had any of the cards he replied that they keep turning them down!
Flabbergasted, I asked him to take any future offers and pass them on.
I'm not really collecting, but as it's costing me nowt - a Yorkshireman's dream! I just put them all in my albums!

Eight packs so far, 32 different cards; we'll see how long that lasts ...

Well done MT.  I hope you get the complete set.  Many years ago boys stood outside tobacconists asking anyone who bought cigarettes whether they had "got any cigarette cards mister?".  I wonder whether they now stand outside Sainsburys asking "got any lego cards mister?".

WOW!
Lily is one of those that I have!
I also have #140 ...

UPDATE: Just checked - are you sure that you don't mean 1.49? I can't find one at 149.00

That's probably a mistake - all his others are 1.49.

That's exactly what I thought in the first place, Alan.

UPDATE: Now corrected - it WAS meant to be 1.49 (I contacted the seller to check!)

Hi guys,

A colleague of mine is short of 6 cards and I've said I'll ask and see if anyone can help. Does anyone have any spares of 54, 93, 96, 97,117 and 122? I don't know what the going rate is so please just let me know but obviously I'll cover postage if someone is able to help.

Thanks,
Sam
