CSGB August 2018 Auction1st June 2018 by Sam Whiting
I realise that this is a bit late, but I hope that everyone who attended the Convention had a great time and found plenty of cards to remove from their wants lists. I thoroughly enjoyed the event, the venue was superb with great lighting and plenty of free parking. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who voted for my article, about how I started collecting, in the Cartophilic Cup competition. I was thrilled, flattered and honoured, not to mention totally surprised to have won. The Council did extremely well to keep this to themselves, I had absolutely no idea. When I can find the time I will attempt another article, but please do not hold your breath Mr. Editor!
And so on to the highlights. There are 2 more Brown Bros. Types of British Aircraft, 2 sets of Kensitas Silk Flowers, a CWS Parrot, 5 Faulkner Our Colonial Troops and 3 Policemen of the World, 4 Sniders & Abrahams types, 2 Ed. Smith War Portraits, 3 Brooke Bond Place the Face Bingo cards, a set of Taddy Autographs in mainly VG condition and some more early and rare Ogden’s cards.
Please have a good look through the Auction List; there is the usual mix of sets and types, tobacco and trade. I look forward to receiving your bids.
