July 2017 – Hants and Surrey Branch Auction – Prices Realised Added18th June 2017 by Sam Whiting
First, my thanks to the postal bidders who sent stamps. It is not essential, but I think it does show interest, and I guess all of us need a little of that to keep us going! In April, Lots 1-10 were offered at low reserves, and all attracted bids, so that Vendor has included more of the same, see Lots 1-22. We will see if these, too, are appreciated.
From ‘the collection’ this time come Lots 29 – 75. Despite many of these being unusual and in mostly very nice condition, the reserves seem to be really quite reasonable, especially when you consider the lack of extras such as VAT and Commission.
Lots 76 – 150 are the usual mix of part sets and full sets, gleaned from various local members. Lots 151 – 307, all single cards, represent the impressive array I usually get, mostly in very nice condition and not easy to find, and most with reserves no higher than 50%. Lots 308 – 332 are part of another batch of quality condition cards from a collection in the North, and more will follow over at least the next two auctions
Lastly, more cards from the local members at Lots 333 – 350
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!
Where does the time go! I am writing this in the week before Christmas, and another year has flown by. By the time you get this we will be in to 2020, so I hope you all had a great Christmas and wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
All card and ephemera collectors make a note in your diary now because our next card convention will take place on SATURDAY 25th and SUNDAY 26th APRIL 2020 at FIVE RIVERS LEISURE CENTRE, HULSE ROAD, SALISBURY, WILTSHIRE SP1 3NR ❄️❄️
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
