Association Footballers 1st Series 1938
Churchman Football Association Footballers 1st Series 1938 Association Footballers 1st Series 1938 50 - Some of the clubs which were in the Premiership in 2014 were also represented in this set, for instance Manchester United (W. Roughton and W. McKay), Arsenal (E. Drake & E Hapgood), Chelsea (V. Woodley & P. Buchanan), Manchester City (P. Doherty) and Liverpool (B. Nieuwenhuys). Seeing two Preston North End players (Andrew Beattie and George Mutch) included in the set, it occurs to us that they may well have encountered a star-to-be, Tom Finney, then a 16-year old ground staff boy at Preston. It’s also interesting to note that Stoke City’s Stanley Matthews “has been with the club since starting work in the office on leaving school. Capped when a schoolboy he is now England’s first choice.” Size 68 x 36mm

Lot 289

This festive season brings us 414 lots in this December auction (ending 3rd of January), lots range from sub-standard to mint condition. A huge selection of complete sets and individual cards pre-1900 to the modern day, in fact the widest variety of cards you can imagine all in one auction. We also have multiple sets together as well as multiple part sets right the way through this auction. Don’t forget in our auctions we do not have a buyers’ premium, what that means is the hammer price is what you pay plus postage (credit card fees apply) and that is it. I can assure you not many auction houses will offer that!  On to the auction itself, I have reviewed all 414 lots and the one that stands out is lot 268 a W.D & H.O Wills part set (243 out of 258) Transvaal Series which has the white borders with the varieties issued in 1900. These are mainly head and shoulder images of the senior military personnel of the war. This set has been assessed and a few are in fair condition otherwise they are in good to very good condition and have thus been valued at £350 against the catalogue value of £450 for in very good condition. Elsewhere in the auction we have our usual Brooke Bond lots (216 to 239) and other collecting oddities not to mention autograph cards, promo cards and this month Panini cards still sealed in their wrappers. 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
