CSGB November/December Card Auction – Now Accepting Bids16th November 2015 by Sam Whiting
Chris has assembled the lots ready for the last auction of 2015 (how time flies!) and the November/December Card Auction is now accepting bids! It’s a good mix of types and sets with some unrecorded cards and a few silks including a few sets of Kensitas Silk Flowers.
To summarise some of the cards available by theme then; for military collectors there are several Gloag ‘Home & Colonial Regiments’ in VG condition, 2 Wills Scissors ‘Drum Horses’ in VG condition as well as a nice Typhoo ‘Our Empire’s Defenders’ card. For lovers of Actresses/Beauties- a very rare Shepherd Beauties ‘FECKSA’ and a nice Morris ‘Actresses’ ‘FROGA’ should prove tempting! Whilst we don’t have golf represented in the auction this time we have several Football, Cricket and Rugby cards from Wills, Wilkinson, Boys Magazine, Adidas and others. There are also 8 Cohen Weenan ‘Famous Boxers’ which always prove very popular.
Some cards that don’t really sit with a particular theme but that are also worth noting are several types from Faulkner’s ‘Street Cries’ and ‘Nautical Terms’ with the majority being in VG condition. There are also some excellent Victorian trade cards from the USA available from lot 139 onwards.
We would strongly recommend you have a look. The rates for our auctions are very competitive with members not having to pay ANY commission fees!
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!

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
