CSGB August 2019 Auction28th July 2019 by Sam Whiting
Oh to be in England now that summer’s there! Writing this in mid-June, it is not very warm and the rain is affecting the cricket World Cup with 3 games abandoned so far. I shouldn’t grumble, it has given me the chance to get the auction listing and scans done early. There is a bright future, hopefully. My wife and I have been successful with the Wimbledon ticket ballot and have tickets for Court 1, which now has a roof, so we are guaranteed a whole days play. I have also been watching some of the women’s football World Cup, which made me wonder if there were any sets of cards issued for this. I could only find a sticker collection, I am sure there would be both cards and stickers for the men’s event, but it is a step in the right direction.
And so on to the highlights. There are 2 more Brown Types of British Aircraft amongst the first few lots of rare or unusual mainly trade cards, some Kensitas silk flowers, both M and P size, 3 Wills Locomotives & Rolling Stock alternative subjects, another selection of overseas issues, some early Actresses from both Cadle and Cope, more Rutter Girls, Flags & arms, some Ogdens Actresses Woodburytype, Beauties & Military P/C Inset, Beauties Green Net backs, Taddy types in top condition, Ed. Smith War Portraits and 3 Fairweather Historic Buildings of Scotland also in top condition.
Please have a good look through the Auction List; there is the usual mix of sets and types, tobacco and trade. I look forward to receiving your bids.
If a member wishes to see a scan of a lot they are considering bidding on then I am only too happy to oblige. However due to the cost of printing and postage this will only be possible by email. Please email your requests to me and I will try to respond as soon as possible.
If a member requires any more information about lots, then please contact me by phone, email or post and I will do my best to assist.
