CSGB June 2018 Auction25th April 2018 by Sam Whiting
I am writing this just before setting off for Kings Lynn; I am really looking for to the Convention, as always. I hope many of you were able to come, buy lots of cards and view the auction lots. As usual, my wife and I are having a short break close to the Convention venue, it gives us a chance to have a look around an area we have not been to before. Having a few days away also makes the trip more bearable for my wife, as the whole trip does not just revolve around cards, well not quite!
And so on to the highlights. Without a doubt, the star this time is an Ogden’s English Actress, a post card size card with a catalogue value of £850, although this may have changed as the new Murray’s Guide is being released at the Convention. There are some other early Ogden’s cards also to be found, plus some Guinea Gold and Tabs Cricketers. There are some more North African and South American cards that have been proving popular, 4 Clarkes Sporting Terms offered individually, some more Donaldson Sports Favourites, not in the best condition but the low reserves reflect that.

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.
If a member requires any more information about lots, then please contact me by phone, email or post and I will do my best to assist.
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!
We cant let this day go by without some cartophilic commemoration. After all it is the date that our feathered friends traditionally choose their mates. So why not! The vintage image we choose as our featured card is a reminder of how times change, a
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. I am looking forward to the convention at Salisbury. While it is not so far for me to travel, I confess I do enjoy going
Greetings to all our Antipodean friends. We hope that you enjoy your day. Did you know you could visit Australia from here! In virtual form of course, because we have a thriving Australian cartophilic Society linked to us in many ways and it's ea
