Crewe v Preston Match Badges 2014/15

So these are four varieties (of the Twelve available) of the Crewe v Preston 2014/15 match badges that came from a seller named "Danny in St Neots".  This was the third Crewe game in the 2014/15 season that this style of badge was made for (Oldham & Bradford being the others).  Quite frankly these were the straw that broke the camels back regarding collecting every colourway as a)12 varieties is ridiculous and b) at £5 a pop, it is ridiculously expensive for one badge release.  Four or even six varieties would have been OK...  I collected the four in this set that most resemble Crewe colours, 

The other bizarre thing about this seller and these badges was that he claimed they were being made for foreign collectors and that I would have to buy quick to guarantee getting them...  amazingly they are still available on ebay :)  Not sure who or why there would be 'foreign collectors' of these either.

Regarding the badges themselves, they are actually really nice (if a little unoriginal) with good quality manufacture and design. The badges include the dates of the two games, both club logos and the league one trophy.
