Hants & Surrey January Auction Now Accepting Bids!14th December 2015 by Sam Whiting
First, my thanks to all of you who liked the ‘Prices Realised’ list. Only two were not sure, and one of those was only thinking of the extra time for me (thank you!). A total of 23 of you replied to me on this. Again, a good number of collectors attended the Fair, and over 20 bidders were successful in the room, outbidding in a few instances some very good postal bids. A few surprises again, as usual, with Lot 31, Ogdens Army Crests and Mottoes not attracting any bid.

There are some more of the larger American cards, and the first batch of VG-EX cards from another vendor. At Lot 254, is another rare card from Harris – Star Girls, with a ‘grubby’ back, but the front is not too bad.
