CSGB Postal Auction Archives – 2014

Welcome to 2014 – the first of our Postal Auction Archives.

Below is the first auction catalogue ever to be published and illustrated in our printed “Card-World” magazine, and on our new website of the same name.

You might be interested to hear that at that time bidding on our auctions was only open to Society Members. This was something that was almost certainly altered by the accessibility of the internet, and we are pleased to let readers know that these days we accept bids from all collectors, though we do charge buyers premiums to non-members.

Some of the highlights of the auction catalogue, as cited at the time included cards by Caley (lot 47) Co-Operative Wholesale Company / C.W.S. (lots 27, 147 and 148), Faulkner (lots 36 and 122), Sinclair (lot 9), and Taddy (lots 21,22 and 116).

Despite not being first in the alphabet, or being the earliest lot number mentioned, and also not being a bright colourful card to show the wonders of the internet at its best, it was one of the Taddy cards, namely lot 21, which took the honours of being the first card ever illustrated in “Card-World”; a County Cricketers in Good to Very Good condition, showing Mr. R. T. Crawford of Leicestershire. It therefore seems only fitting that we use that image for the featured card on this round-up post. We do wish we knew why it was selected though

So here in its entirety is that inaugural auction catalogue. You will notice it lacks the prices realised at the moment but they will be added as soon as we can.

And please note we catalogue our cards as follows:
