Cricket Personalities 1940s/50s 1st Series 2000

Despite the majority having also played in Tests, these are hardly household names so a good set to have, the exception being Dennis Compton who played cricket for Middlesex and England and football for Arsenal, as we discover from the comprehensive career information given on the backs. Size 89 64mm.

Lot 289

Another auction is now complete and ready to review. This month sees 404 lots a little under average for our auctions, but still jam-packed with a wide variety of lots from cigarette to trade cards, Collectors Tins, Coupons & Albums. If you need any questions answered about any of the lots in our auction please do not hesitate to give us a call. If you have never bid in our auctions, again do not hesitate to contact us and we can give you help to understand how it all works. That being said let us get on with reviewing this month’s auction. As we normally do, I have singled out one lot to bring forward and highlight in the introduction. This is Lot 289, a complete set from the tobacco manufacturer Hudden & Co and known as Flags of All Nations. The set of 25 cards includes nations such as USA, Great Britain, France, Germany even Brazil, Persia & India, a great spread. Each card has two flags separated by a crest or shield of the country. This lot is slightly substandard but still worth the estimated price of £500 which is also the most expensive lot in the entire auction. 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

Topps (USA) Miscellaneous Trade Cards Trolls by Russ 1992 (matt backs USA printing) Trolls by Russ 1992 (matt backs USA printing) LT66 - Trolls were back in vogue following the successful film released in 2016, the set is based on the popular Russ troll figures produced in the 1990s. The fronts show one of the characters and the backs contain jokey information with picture or postcard. For instance the first card features a stereotypical French troll called ‘Taulouse le Troll” and the back shows a postcard saying “Greetings from the Arc de Trollomphe!” and the information that French Trolls are romantic and good cooks too!. Some of the sports trolls have a cartoon on the back and humorous quote such as “Trolls get a kick out of playing soccer!” The last card is a checklist. Size 89 x 64mm Note this is the USA printing with matt backs, the UK printing has glossy backs

Playboy Chromium Cover Card Edition 1 1995 Playboy Chromium Cover Card Edition 1 1995 LT100 - These gold-edged shiny cards feature Playboy magazine covers down the years. These cards start with the April 1954 issue when things were a bit restrained, at least on the outside which shows the famous white bunny. The backs give the magazine date and the table of contents for the relevant issue. I was surprised how subtle some of these covers are, but by the time we get to the December 1972 issue there is a lot more flesh on view. Within the set are checklists and competition cards which if posted were entered into a draw to win a trip to the Playboy Mansion. It is also surprising how many big name stars have graced the covers including Dolly Parton (October 1978), Bo Derek, Brigette Nielsen and Sally Field. An interesting set. Size 89 x 64mm.
