Pattreiouex (Senior Service) Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Sights of Britain 2nd Series (Large Caption) 1936 Sights of Britain 2nd Series (Large Caption) 1936 M48 - J.A. Pattreiouex Ltd of Manchester, the makers of Senior Service Cigarettes, were noted for specialising in photographic cards during the 1930s, including Sights of Britain 2nd Series. The 'sights' are both natural and man-made - the likes of Glencoe, Snowdon, Lake Windermere, Mullion Cove and the Wye Valley on the one hand, and Chester Cathedral, Eton College, Caernarvon Castle and Edinburgh's Princes Street on the other. We also see Cutty Sark and HMS Victory. All fine photos backed by highly informative texts, and, as I'm sure you will agree, all worthy choices, the kind of subjects you would expect. But there are also one or two surprises - the Manchester Ship Canal with factory chimneys smoking in the background, Southampton's King George graving dock and Croydon aerodrome's main passenger terminal designed to cope with 'ever-growing air traffic'. Wells, Glastonbury & Wookey are also pictured. Size 76 x 51mm

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. 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. If I was to pick one lot from the 414 listed it would have to be lot 200Footballers Series from Pattreiouex, 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.

Remember we do not charge a BUYER PREMIUM

Topps (USA) Films, TV, Sci Fi & Comic Art Dick Tracy The Movie Stickers 1990 Dick Tracy The Movie Stickers 1990 LT11 - This is the sticker set that was issued at the same time as the card set by Topps featuring Dick Tracy a tough police detective who first appeared in a 1931 cartoon by Chester Gould, later turned into a comedy action film in 1990. The movie was directed and starred Warren Beatty as the hero detective, but also appearing were Dustin Hoffman and Al Pacino as notorious crime figures and Madonna as a sultry singer. The stickers are all the crime figures such as The Brow, Jake “Itchy” Rossi, Al “Big Boy” Caprice and Flattop. These have the word “WANTED” at the top and their name and crime at the bottom. The card backs make up into a sectional picture of the hero Dick Tracy, except for card 9 which features the completed picture. Size 89 x 64mm

Sports Time (USA) Miscellaneous Trade Cards Miller Brewing Co Adverts 1995 Miller Brewing Co Adverts 1995 LT100 - As the title suggests this set, produced under licence by Sports Time, is based on adverts by the Miller Brewing Co. which was founded in 1855 and best known in this country for their Coors brand. Some of these colour pictures are works of art in their own right and all have the Miller eagle logo on the front and numbered backs with a smaller version of the front picture and interesting information. For instance we learn that when Prohibition was lifted on 7th April 1933 the company celebrated at midnight by giving free beer to thousands. We are also told that the Milwaukee company is a leading supporter of cultural diversity and the set includes a Juneteenth advert, an occasion which celebrates the ending of the Civil War on June 19th when all slaves were freed. Also included are a number of checklist cards and heritage pictures. A lovely set which may leave you craving a drink! Size 90 x 64mm.
