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!

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
