Auction # 56628th January 2020 by Squashed Pixel
Well I hope 2019 was a success in finding those elusive lots to slim down your wants list, and that 2020 will be just as good.
When I wrote this I was looking forward to the convention at Salisbury. While it is not so far for me to travel, I confess I do enjoy going further afield to places that I may not have been to before. Sadly recent events have seen this event temporarily postponed, and many others cancelled.
And so on to the highlights of this auction. The auction starts with two Anonymous Beauties PLUMS, Taddy Thames Series no. 1, a set of News Chronicle Motorcyclists (which I am told are quite rare) a set of Sergeant Dan Birds of the World and a Rutter Comic Phrases.
One of the highlights is LOT 67, shown top right in this image. It’s a previously unrecorded Parrs Boot Stores Puzzle Card featuring the sport of Rugby. This one, a stirring action study, is entitled “They’re After Me!”. We imagine a lot of bidders will indeed be after this card. So may we point out it has a companion, to be sold as LOT 66, this being another previously unrecorded Parr’s Rugby subject, “A Forward Rush”. Both cards are graded FAIR condition, and each has an estimate of £25-30.
We also offer some Players Military Series and Old England’s Defenders, a Wills Cricketer 1896, a set of Wills Hurlers plus a set of Wills Punch Cartoons 2nd Series, which is also rare, as well as BAT Dracones Posthistorici and some more Ogden Beauties Green Net Back.
Please have a good look through the auction list – attached below – there is the usual mix of sets and types, tobacco and trade. I look forward to receiving your bids.
If a member wishes to see a scan of a lot they are considering bidding on then I am only too happy to oblige. However due to the cost of printing and postage this will only be possible by email. Please email your requests to me and I will try to respond as soon as possible.
happy bidding, until next time ……… Chris
A dilemma. Imagine you are, or know a card collector who lives outside the UK, who would be really interested to join us, were it not for the high cost of the overseas subscription? If only there was a way to reduce this cost. And now there is!
have uploaded their next "Type List" at https://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/auction-catalogues/tim-davidson/catalogue-id-srti10122 Please do take a look and bid sportingly. Few auctions are running, so we must reward those who are.
Although the Convention has been postponed, the auction will still go ahead with the same finish date of 1st May. Unless there are more lockdown restrictions imposed I am aiming to send lots out to winning bidders on or about 6th May. Of course the
This early American pasteboard representation, part of a set of "Holidays", is a charming way to pass on our St Patrick's Day greetings to collectors worldwide. It has endured two World Wars, and many other historical events of a worrisome nature,
