There are card meetings and auctions going on around the UK every week and one of our aims at Card World is to try to list as many as possible so that you can see what’s happening near you and hopefully track down those cards that have been eluding you. As well as the CSGB branch meeting details you will also find details of other national auctions and fairs taking place that may be of interest.

August 2017 CSGB Postal Auction – Now Closed

I hope everyone enjoyed the Convention at Stratford on Avon, what a superb venue! As always, I thoroughly enjoyed myself, spent more than I intended so no different to the norm! My only slight disappointment was the lack of viewing of the auction lots. It would have been great to have seen some more people introduce themselves and have a look at the lots. However, we sold 116 out of 150 lots so cannot really grumble too much, and of course I do realise the priority of looking through the dealerâ

2017 Convention – Stratford – 29th & 30th April

The largest meeting in the world for trade & cigarette card collectors will take place on 29th – 30th April at the Stratford Leisure Centre, Bridge Foot, Stratford upon Avon CV37 6YY. This is a venue that we have used in the past and it has always been popular with dealers & collectors alike. There are already nearly 100 tables booked and dealers will be offering cards for sale that have been issued during the last 130 years or so. Opening times on Saturday are 10 -6 for Society member & 1

CSGB May/June Auction – Now Accepting Bids

So the Convention is over for another year. I hope that all who attended had as good a time as me, I spent too much, but picked up some great cards and met up with a few people I don’t see that often. It was also good to put a few faces to names of members who bid in the auction when they came to view the auction lots. It has now been decided that we will show estimates on the auction list. This is in response to some members who are unsure how much to bid. The lower estimate will be sligh

April Hants & Surrey Branch Auction – Now Accepting Bids

Once again it is time to remind you that for those of you who receive this by post, 4 stamps for the year would be appreciated. Not compulsory – just a request. Thanks. I have done the Prices Realised list again, but have sent it already to those who bid by email, as I think this assists bidders to remember what they bid in the last auction a lot earlier. (Sorry, cannot do this for postal bidders early because of the additional costs) Again, a good number of collectors attended the Fair, and o

The 2016 Convention is nearly here!

It’s that time of year already and we are pleased to confirm the 2016 CSGB Convention will take place in Bracknell on the Saturday 30th April and Sunday 1st May. As I get updates on dealers that will be attending I shall add them here but you can be sure that there will be quite literally millions of cigarette and trade cards on offer as usual. Chris Corner has also assembled a first rate auction (which will be loaded onto the website very soon!) and all lots will be available to view over
