Hants & Surrey Branch – July 2018 Auction15th June 2018 by Sam Whiting
For a while, I have been compiling a ‘Prices Realised’ list. I have now decided that, as from now, I will no longer do this, as the amount of extra work is considerable. Sorry. Apologies also to those receiving the list through the post, as somehow, the Printing company managed to reproduce the Jan. ‘Notes’ sheet, not April. So, to repeat my note about stamps, if anyone receiving this list through the post wishes to send a few stamps to defray our costs, these would be very welcome. This is not a demand, just a note, and thank you to those who have sent, without any reminder – appreciated
Once again, I can offer from the Club the usual mixture of sets, part sets, single cards and items from ‘specialists’. Those from ‘the collection’ this time, at Lots 6 – 58, are a little different as they include a number of more usual items, but always in very nice condition, and at a good reduction to tempt you. The ever popular ‘single’ cards continue to provide cards which attract a lot of interest, and this time there are a good number of American cards. Those of you who have bought the new Murray guide will see that many issues have risen quite considerably in price, thus acknowledging how well produced the old American cards were. The football collector has lots Nos. 297 – 310, and from our northern friend Lots 311 – 324, all in at least VG+ condition. Hope we can tempt you with something

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
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
