Card World Nov/Dec Vol. 40 No. 616th November 2016 by Sam Whiting
In this final issue of 2016, we have some excellent articles from contributors who I cannot thank enough for their insightful and most enjoyable observations.
We have festive romance on page 165, from the pen of Iain Robertson, recounting the German film star Anny Ondra and World Champion Max Schmeling’s love story, depicted on cards. Our webmaster Sam Whiting weighs in with a special anniversary piece on Marvel cards on page 173, while from across the pond our friend Dr. Cyril Mazansky MD recounts the Dehli Durbar, illustrated with some superb tea cards from Rob Butterworth. Rob himself pays homage to winter with a seasonal piece on page 168 and a lovely reminisce on page 179. On page 161 we conclude ex-Editor Gordon Howsden’s features on little known errotrs found on cards… or should I say ‘errors’! (Apologies for my feeble effort at a joke but hey! It’s nearly Christmas!)
At this point I have to say a big THANK YOU to Gordon as this is his final article and he has been a constant help and encouragement in guiding me through my early days of Editorship of this magazine – thank you Gordon.
2017 will herald a new look to the magazine with the appearance of a few new features to freshen things up. Please contact me with any stories, ideas or thoughts you may have to make our magazine more enjoyable, I am ALWAYS looking to include readers’ contributions.
All that remains for me now is to wish everybody a Merry Christmas and a happy and peaceful New year… see you al again in 2017!

I was asked this time by two new bidders whether or not they had to bid in multiples of £5. My reply was that I welcomed any bid, and many of you obtain lots because you do NOT bid in multiples of £5. I mention this because I had a classic example
