CSGB June 2017 Auction18th May 2017 by Sam Whiting
I am writing these notes a week before the Convention, so will not be able to comment on the event, but I expect it to be a great success as usual. I hope that all who attended had a great time and managed to find some of the elusive cards on your wants lists. I am sat here on my computer really looking forward to a few days in Stratford, my wife and I always take the opportunity to have a short break to coincide with the Convention, unless it is held fairly close to home, such as last year in Bracknell, where we just stayed the one night.
And so on to the highlights this time. There are 2 Waterman Army Pictures, Cartoons, etc., 2 Old Calabar advert cards featuring dogs, Actresses FROGA & BLARM, some more Faulkner Our Colonial Troops (Union Jack Cigarettes), Nautical Terms, 6 more Duke Battle Scenes, Allen & Ginter Natives in Costume, Freeman Actresses FRAN, 4 Taddy Actresses Collotype, sadly not in the best condition, but the reserves reflect that, Cope Footballers, H C Lloyd Actresses and Boer War, some seldom seen Trick Billiards by Hignett and no less than 9 scarce Wills Punch Cartoons, 2nd Series. Have a good look through the list; I hope you will find something of interest.
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.
A dilemma. Imagine you are, or know a card collector who lives outside the UK, who would be really interested to join us, were it not for the high cost of the overseas subscription? If only there was a way to reduce this cost. And now there is!
Where does the time go! I am writing this in the week before Christmas, and another year has flown by. By the time you get this we will be in to 2020, so I hope you all had a great Christmas and wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

Anyone want to buy a large cricket collection. Only joking! That is what I wrote on the Saturday afternoon of the 3rd Ashes Test. As you will know, England managed a magnificent 67 all out in their 1st innings, with only Root and Bairstow out to goo
