Ah the Corgi Rockets 978 OHMSS gift set an original would set you back £9,000/£10,000 this code 3 on eBay already has 1 bid but £150 bit steep for a copy tbh...

If it wasn't for the badly cut holes on the blister cards you'd have a tough time determine it original or not and another giveaway is that the original cars all faced the same way nice set but pricey...

Plus the original set has a Corgi Rockets catalogue stuffed inside the box I was 20 seconds away from owning the real set as my bid was £100 but got outbid by a cool £8000 so so close...

Yep these are very rare and the reason that they are rare is simply because they didn't sell well and dealers back in the day broke the sets up to sell the models individually to try and get a profit on them
