Once again, I can offer from the Club the usual mixture of sets, part sets, single cards and items from ‘specialists’. Those from ‘the collection’ this time, at Lots 11 – 62, are a little different as they include a number of more usual items, but always in very nice condition, and at a good reduction to tempt you. The Mackenzie set of The Zoo is difficult to find, and is offered at less than a third of catalogue, whilst the shaped set of Duke, Stars of the Stage is in VG condition.
The ever popular ‘single’ cards continue to provide cards which attract a lot of interest, and I suppose this time the Taddy Wrestlers are the most sought after. Lots 300-318 are from our Football collector, and the collector currently providing VG – EX lots is at Nos. 291-299. These are the highlights, but about 70% of all lots now sell, so the list is worth a look.
