CSGB June 2018 Auction25th April 2018 by Sam Whiting
I am writing this just before setting off for Kings Lynn; I am really looking for to the Convention, as always. I hope many of you were able to come, buy lots of cards and view the auction lots. As usual, my wife and I are having a short break close to the Convention venue, it gives us a chance to have a look around an area we have not been to before. Having a few days away also makes the trip more bearable for my wife, as the whole trip does not just revolve around cards, well not quite!
And so on to the highlights. Without a doubt, the star this time is an Ogden’s English Actress, a post card size card with a catalogue value of £850, although this may have changed as the new Murray’s Guide is being released at the Convention. There are some other early Ogden’s cards also to be found, plus some Guinea Gold and Tabs Cricketers. There are some more North African and South American cards that have been proving popular, 4 Clarkes Sporting Terms offered individually, some more Donaldson Sports Favourites, not in the best condition but the low reserves reflect that.
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.
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.
