May 2017 CSGB Postal Auction – Now Closed6th March 2017 by Sam Whiting
Well here I am, writing my jottings for the Convention Auction. I know it is a cliché, but where have the last 12 months gone? The days and weeks seem to have flown by!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the vendors who supply the material for the auction, and of course also the people who bid, without you the auction could not carry on.
As has been the case for a few years, there will be no live auction at the Convention. However, the lots will be available to view, on Saturday between 1:30 and 3:30 (or 13:30 and 15:30 if you prefer!), and on Sunday between 12 and 1. I will have bidding sheets with me, so will be able to accept bids at the Convention, but note that the auction will close on Saturday 6th May 2017. Please come and view the auction lots and introduce yourself, it would be good to put faces to names of bidders and vendors!
The highlights this time include a Charlesworth & Austin Cricketer, a Quinton Actress FROGA, 10 lots of trade sets of transport subjects in very nice condition, 8 Ogden’s Actresses Collotype offered individually, some Battle Scenes by both Duke and Gail & Ax, Taddy County Cricketers and Prominent Footballers, some early Barratt issues, Kinnear Jockeys, Smith Champions of Sport and much, much more.
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.
Well, my last jottings about the cricket almost came back to haunt me! The West Indies managed to win the 2nd test, albeit in my opinion with the help of an extremely generous declaration from Joe Root. I said to my wife, whilst watching the highligh

*Prices Realised now added* From ‘the collection’ this time come Lots 14 – 56. Again, some quite scarce and some quite costly items. Among all these cards, only one do I describe as ‘Fair’, which illustrates the general condition from th
