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.
happy bidding, until next time ……… Chris

I can remember talking to Dennis the gardener, one day in 1983, he would come to mow our lawns each week and would pop into the kitchen for a cup of tea, a biscuit and a chat. I mentioned that I was going to look for the Taddy snuff-mills on t
