Hants and Surrey – January 2019 Auction2nd January 2019 by Sam Whiting
In this Auction, ‘the collection’ again features items at Lots 6 – 71, including 4 with high catalogue values. One set, scarce as set, is catalogued at £1900, but is not that popular. What reserve can I give, when the cards are in VG condition. The vendor has decided on £650 as a reserve, and we shall see if this set is worth this in due time. ‘The collection’ also offers some sets from both Player and Wills which are offered at modest reserves, but in mostly as good condition as you can try for. Again, will these offerings get their deserved bids, or not. Liebig is well represented this time, continuing to be popular. The single card section starts at lot 135 right through to Lot 349. The majority of these are in VG – EX condition, as, although it is getting harder to find 350 lots each time, I will not accept cards in a condition which is not acceptable to me. I set the quality aspect when I began, and even now, 35 years later, I am not prepared to drop my standards. I am fortunate to get a regular flow of American cards in very nice order, which are much appreciated by bidders. So, I now send the list, and look forward to receiving your bids – thank you Vernon

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!
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

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
