I hope that everyone had a great Christmas and New Year, and are now fully recovered and raring to carry on with your collecting!
As usual, the auction contains a great mixture of sets and types, both tobacco and trade. Highlights include 2 Maynards Football Clubs, a set of Somportex Battle Medals still in their original packets, 6 lots of Fairweather Historic Buildings of Scotland, the first batch of some Guinea Gold and Tabs Cricketers, Mitchell Actresses FROGA, some American issues and Players Famous Authors and Poets (Narrow card).
