Hants & Surrey Branch – July 2018 Auction15th Jun 2018 by Sam Whiting
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.

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 6 – 58, 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.

Those of you who have bought the new Murray guide will see that many issues have risen quite considerably in price, thus acknowledging how well produced the old American cards were. The football collector has lots Nos. 297 – 310, and from our northern friend Lots 311 – 324, all in at least VG+ condition. Hope we can tempt you with something

As some of you might know, I have been absent from the UK branch circuit for the last 24 years whilst working as a contract finance manager for a construction company in the middle and far east until 2017 when I finally retired. Although I was unabl
