The time has come once again for another Hants and Surrey Cigarette Card auction and after such great selection of lots for the last auction (including the £7,000 Marsuma Golfers!) Vernon has managed to pull together yet another great auction with something for everyone.
This month we have lots from Taddy, Dukes, Allen and Ginter, Kinney, Mayo, Clarkes, Edwards, Ringer and Bigg and many many more – the list really needs to be looked through to be appreciated!
For the Golf collectors there are some Guinea Golds including a Hall of Fame duo – Vardon vs. Braid and the Leslie Balfour card pictured above. Cricket collectors will be pleased to see cards by Smith’s, Ogdens and Pattrieouex among others with a particularly nice card featuring Lord Hawke (see Lot 221). For the boxing collectors there is a lovely set of Ogden’s ‘Pugilists and Wrestlers (2nd Series) and a set of Copes ‘Boxers 101 – 125’!
