*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 this collection. Two examples of scarcity are the 49/50 Roche Footballers in very nice condition, only missing the very scarce number 21. The other is the set plus 24 variations of the Duke set of folders, see Lot 34. This must surely be difficult to find these days.
Lots 57 – 131 consist of the usual mixture of sets, part sets etc. from Club members with all sorts of unusual lots, which we hope will attract bids.
Lots 132 – 240 are all from the same collection, and Lots 241 – 274 are from local dealers. Lots 275 – 290 are from our Football specialist, and Lots 306 – 325 from our long standing collector who only collected cards in VG – EX condition. The remaining lots are all from local members
As usual, we do hope there will be something to whet your collecting appetite
