April 2017 – Hants & Surrey Branch Auction – Prices Realised30th March 2017 by Sam Whiting
(Prices realised have now been added to the bottom of this page)
Christmas is not usually the time for huge success in our auction – there is always the excuse(!)that there are too many other priorities at this time of year. However, our overall success was not much less than usual, with 480 bids being placed
In this auction, I offer the following guide:-
- Lots 1-10 are offered at low reserves, as the Vendor just wants to sell
- Lots 16-64 are from ‘the collection’, offering variety and value, including on some expensive material
- Lots 276-297 are from our long time football collector, and offers some scarce to very scarce cards
- Lots 304- 317 are the last from the collector of American cards in very good order, but it is possible I may get some more shortly for a future auction
There is plenty of other material, both sets, part sets and singles to whet your appetite
Hopefully you will find something of interest. And lastly, if any of you receiving this list through the post wish to contribute any stamps for the next year, it would be appreciated

The Handbook is divided into two parts and provides comprehensive listings and illustrations of known ‘Felt’ and ‘Leather’ Designs issued by Tobacco and Trading Companies in North America, Canada & Great Britain between 1910 and 1915.
Oh to be in England now that summer’s there! Writing this in mid-June, it is not very warm and the rain is affecting the cricket World Cup with 3 games abandoned so far. I shouldn’t grumble, it has given me the chance to get the auction listing
