Hants and Surrey – January 2019 Auction

In this Auction, 'the collection' again features items at Lots 6 - 71, including 4 with high catalogue values. One set, scarce as set, is catalogued at £1900, but is not that popular. What reserve can I give, when the cards are in VG condition. The vendor has decided on £650 as a reserve, and we shall see if this set is worth this in due time. 'The collection' also offers some sets from both Player and Wills which are offered at modest reserves, but in mostly as good condition as you can

Hants & Surrey Branch – July 2018 Auction

For a while, I have been compiling a 'Prices Realised' list. I have now decided that, as from now, I will no longer do this, as the amount of extra work is considerable. Sorry. Apologies also to those receiving the list through the post, as somehow, the Printing company managed to reproduce the Jan. 'Notes' sheet, not April.

October 2017 – Hants & Surrey Branch Auction – Priced Realised

*Prices Realised now added* From ‘the collection’ this time come Lots 14 – 56. Again, some quite scarce and some quite costly items. Among all these cards, only one do I describe as ‘Fair’, which illustrates the general condition from this collection. Two examples of scarcity are the 49/50 Roche Footballers in very nice condition, only missing the very scarce number 21. The other is the set plus 24 variations of the Duke set of folders, see Lot 34. This must surely be difficult to f
