Treasure Trove 1935
Churchman Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Treasure Trove 1935 Treasure Trove 1935 L12 - The discovery of treasure always creates excitement, none more so than when it is the subject of mystery and legend, as when Howard Carter opened Tut-Ankh-Amen'stomb in 1922 - you may recall Lord Carnarvon, Carter's associate, died in mysterious circumstances in Egypt a few month's later, a victim of the Pharoah's curse, they say. Howard Carter is pictured opening the boy king's solid gold coffin on the first card in Churchman's series of 12 large size Treasure Trove cards, a fascinating series which illustrates and describes several historic finds including silver-ware buried at Pompeii ever since Vesuvius erupted in A.D.79, the Stoke Prior hoard discovered in a Herefordshire rabbit burrow by a man ferreting in 1891, the Iron Agebronzes recovered from the bed of the River Thames when Batterseaand Waterloo Bridges were being built, and Sir Mortimer Wheeler's discovery of Wonderful mosaics at Verulamium, the Roman city near St Albans. We also learn that in 1928 Mussolini ordered the draining of Lake Nemi near Naples so that two imperial Roman galleys belonging to the Emperor Tiberius - floating palaces complete with marble baths and swimming pools - could be reclaimed, whilst two of the cards are given over to the then greatest ever feat of maritime salvage, the recovery of tons of gold bullion from the wreck of the P & O liner 'Egypt' lying on the floor of the Atlantic after a collision in 1922. All are thrilling stories, with superb colour illustrations. Size 82 x 63mm

Lot 111

Already well into 2017 and we have a real treat this month with 416 lots, so many fantastic lots to go through and review. Many complete sets from tobacco and trade issuers ranging from just £10 all the way up to an impressive £350 but the most expensive in this month’s auction isn’t a complete set, it is, in fact, a part set from A & BC Gum, lot 307 (reviewed later). The real stand out lot for me this month is not a complete set nor is it the most expensive lot either, it is lot 111 All Sports by A & BC Gum, which is a part set of 114 out of 120 cards in mixed condition with just 2 very poor and in the main fair to very good. It has such a varying list of sporting celebrities from football, motor racing, swimming and boxing including Stan Matthews (football), Jim Laker (No relation) (Cricket) and Heavy Weight Champion Jack Dempsey (Boxing) to name just a few. They all are photographic images of the sporting star with their name and sport at the bottom. This is an opportunity to get a great series to improve with only a few missing, a real challenge! For further information about any lot, please do not hesitate to contact us by telephone 01458 273452 or via e-mail cards@londoncigcard.co.uk

Futera (UK) Films, TV, Sci Fi & Comic Art Chicken Run Stickers (Aardman Dreamworks Film) 2000 Chicken Run Stickers (Aardman Dreamworks Film) 2000 M180 - These stickers are from the brilliant Chicken Run animated film produced by Aardman (distributed in the U.S by Dreamworks), their first feature length film. It tells the story of a group of chickens led by the feisty Ginger (voiced by Julia Sawalha) as they try to escape from Tweedy’s Chicken Farm before they are turned into chicken pies. When a rooster named Rocky (voiced by Mel Gibson) crash lands in their pen they believe they have finally found a way out as he can teach them to fly over the fence. There then follow some humorous scenes as he tries to teach the chickens to fly whilst hiding the fact that he cannot fly either. Rocky falls for the clever Ginger and in the end the chickens pull together to make a plane which allows them all to escape to the safety of a deserted island. Good clean family fun that never goes out of favour as it is regularly repeated on television. Some of the colourful stickers can be assembled into blocks making up scenes from the film within an orange border, whilst others are individual pictures. The backs are numbered with company details of the issuers and distributing companies but no other information. Size 68 x 54mm.
