Mitchell Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Empire Exhibition Scotland 1938 Empire Exhibition Scotland 1938 25 - In 1938 Glasgow hosted the Empire Exhibition in Scotland, and, fittingly, the local tobacco firm, Stephen Mitchell & Son, celebrated the event with a series of 25 cigarette cards. The exhibition, staged at Moss Park, featured national pavilions, an amusement park, a lake with 100-foot high fountains, and an observation tower 300-feet tall with lifts to whisk visitors to the top. Some idea of the grand scale can be gained from the fact that six 300-foot wide entrances each with sixteen turnstiles were needed “so that the vast crowds which throng the Exhibition daily can be cleared speedily”. The card backs proudly describe the facilities – including the Press Club where newsmen could relax in the exclusive billiard room, card room, lounge and restaurant, and maybe even use one of the many typewriters or the array of telephones. The City of Glasgow pavilion was one of the largest and we are informed that “when the Exhibition is over, the pavilion will be retained as a permanent centre for the sports park which will be laid out there.” Size 68 x 36mm

Lot 198

Happy New Year! I hope all of you had a great Christmas and New Year. We start 2017 with a fantastic, fully packed auction. Although only 405 lots we have Taddy and F & J Smith sets and individual cards not to mention the ever-popular Allen & Ginter, Duke, Kinney and other early American Tobacco cards. Other card collecting items include empty special albums and luxury albums. Hopefully by now you will have fully understood our new layout, if not I will quickly run through it here. Simply we have added an additional column to show the “2017 Catalogue” prices in top condition, this is labelled “CAT”. The column directly next to it (to the right) is labelled “EST” and this is what we have estimated the value of that lot due to its condition. Hopefully by doing this we are improving our service to you and helping you understand the importance of “Condition” when valuing cards. Of course, when it comes to auctions it also depends on how much you want that lot as other bidders may have the same desire to win it as well… so good luck! Now that has been explained let’s move on to this month’s auction. There are two fantastic lots I would highlight here. Firstly, Lot 18,  a Taddy complete set of 25 cards titled Orders of Chivalry 1st Series issued around 1911, effectively a top condition set with only one of its cards being in fair condition thus being estimated at £535 rather than £550. The second lot is much further down the auction, lot 198 F & J Smith set of 50 Famous Explorers again from 1911. This set has slightly more cards in sub-standard condition however still a very nice looking set estimated at £400. For further information about any lot in our auction, please do not hesitate to contact us by telephone 01458 273452 or via e-mail cards@londoncigcard.co.uk 

Do not forget we do not charge Buyers Premiums !

Topps (USA) Films, TV, Sci Fi & Comic Art American Gladiators 1991 American Gladiators 1991 LT88 - Rather like the Roman Gladiators whose name they share these are professional athletes who compete in an arena, but there the similarity ends as in this American version they take on members of the public in a series of powerball, jousting, climbing and aerial hanging events. A British version of the TV show also appeared TV, but we are told on the first card that the idea evolved from a contest between steelworkers in America. Some of the cards introduce us to the stars including the hosts of the show and the rest are action shots from the programmes. The numbered backs have a line drawing of one of the star athletes and a description of them or the challenge, with the final two cards being checklists. Gladiators are you ready!! Size 90 by 64mm.
