Welcome to Our World
We regret there will be no Cartophilic Convention this year. We believe it is the first year we have ever missed, but our decision has been made on grounds of safety and of health. It may turn out that coronavirus has been entirely defeated by October, though recent developments are starting to suggest the opposite. And as a large proportion of our collecting friends fall in the demographic age of those who are unkindly most affected by this scourge, we do not feel comfortable with the risks of hosting such an event
HOWEVER…. there are plans brewing to hold an online event of some kind.
We await to see how auctions and fairs will be affected by the threat of a new spike and lockdown. At the moment auctions are operating online and viewing / collection must be booked in advance and conducted by means of masked social distancing.
We have temporarily moved our auction updates on to our top trio of newsfeed boxes. They will pop up to the front as auction day nears, and again when the prices realised are available. In this way you can spot updates far more easily.
Don’t forget, if you spot cards or cartophilic items in any non card specialist auction catalogues you receive, or have any tales to tell about any unusual lots you buy under the hammer please contact us HERE
