In Town Tonight 1938
Churchman Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards In Town Tonight 1938 In Town Tonight 1938 50 - In the 1930,s the Saturday evening radio show was ‘In Town Tonight’ which began with the cry of a Piccadilly flower seller in the background as “we stop the roar of London’s traffic.” The recording was the voice of Mrs Emma Baker whose picture appears on card no. 2 in Churchman’s 1938 series of fifty, which takes its title from the programme. The basis of the show, and the cards, was to meet people from all walks of life who happened to be in London that night. So on these cards we meet the likes of Cyclone Danny Carter, the international stunt rider; John Tussaud, Madame Tussaud’s great grandson; Christina Foyle of booksellers fame; Dante, the master magician; Prince Monolulu, the racing tipster; Captain Slocum, British Airways pilot; and engine-driver William Hagland who apparently used the cigarette card of himself to prove his identity when appearing as a witness in court. Size 68 x 36mm

Lot 200


Welcome to another auction review, this month being March we have 414 lots to look through from a couple of pounds right the way up to £600 for one lot. So, make sure you have your 2017 cigarette and trade card catalogue with you to help with reading through this auction. If you do not have any of the reference books that we use in our auctions to help establish the more trickier cards we also can supply them at varying prices, details can be given upon request or you can visit our website for a full list, www.londoncigcard.co.uk. Let us start by looking through this month’s auction. Once again, a fantastic variety of lots, cigarette cards pre1918, between the wars and post 1940, as well as modern trade cards. Over 120 individual cards to look through as well as autographic, promo & premium cards. For further information about any lot, please do not hesitate to contact us by telephone 01458 273452 or via email cards@londoncigcard.co.uk and please feel free to visit our website www.londoncigcard.co.uk to view auctions with some different illustrations and guide to bidding success. If I was to pick one lot from the 414 listed it would have to be lot 200Footballers Series from Pattreiouex (the most expensive this month), this is the series which the captions are in brown issued in 1927. Although not a complete set (80 out of 100) the majority is in very good condition and would make a nice addition to any collection estimated at £600.

Card Crazy (New Zealand) Rugby Union & League Rugby Superstars Super 12 Logos Chase Set (Rugby Union) 1996 Rugby Superstars Super 12 Logos Chase Set (Rugby Union) 1996 LT5 - The Super 12 was a Rugby Union competition between 12 teams from Australia, New Zealand and South Africa and this set features the logos/emblems (again on shiny foil) for the New Zealand teams which included Otago Highlanders, Waikato Chiefs, Auckland Blues, Wellington Hurricanes and Canterbury Crusaders. The front pictures have a foil background and the numbered backs repeat the picture and tell us about their likely performance in the Super 12 competition. For instance the card for Auckland Blues describes them as “a champion side full of champion players, the Blues look set to make good on their pre-competition position as favourites” and they did indeed win the competition in 1996. Size 89 x 64mm.
