We are one of Britain's foremost public auctioneers of Cigarette and Trade cards. Our six sales each year contain collections and dealers’ stocks offered intact, as well as ranges and sets by individual manufacturers, both British and foreign and rare type cards.

Public auctions of postcards, cigarette and trade cards, autographs and printed ephemera are held six times a year. The dates of our upcoming sales are as follows:

  • September 17th 2014
  • November 19th 2014

Our next general public auction of Cigarette and Trade Cards will be held at the Lord Leycester Hotel, Jury Street, Warwick CV34 4EJ, on Wednesday 17th September, starting at 12 noon. The online catalogue will be available approximately 3 weeks before the sale. To view the online catalogue, once it is uploaded, and place bids on items in the sale click here. To download a catalogue (without illustrations) click here.

The sales take place at the Lord Leycester Hotel, Jury Street, Warwick CV34 4EJ. The hotel has a small car park at the rear and the nearest public car park is in New Street. The nearest railway station is Warwick Town and the nearest major international airport is Birmingham. For directions please visit our How to Find Us page.

Public viewing for all of our auctions is held at our own premises, the sales being too large to transport to the auction venue. Account settlement and lot allocation takes place progressively at our premises whilst the auction continues, so as soon as the section which interests you has been knocked down, you can pay and collect your lots without waiting for the end of the sale.

Public viewing for this sale is available at our offices on the following dates:

  • Friday 12th September from 9am to 4.30pm
  • Monday 15th September from 9am to 4.30pm
  • Tuesday 16th September from 9am to 4.30pm
  • Wednesday 17th September from 8am onwards

There is no need to attend an auction in person, as commission bids can be placed in advance of the sale via our online facility, or by telephone, mail, fax or e-mail. For further details please visit our Online Catalogue.

If you would like to receive a free sample printed catalogue, or alternatively to apply for a catalogue subscription, please complete our catalogue enquiry form. However please remember that the printed catalogue contains far fewer illustrations of lots than the online catalogue and unless you plan to attend the sale you will be better served by viewing the online catalogue.

Warwick and Warwick stamp and collectable auctioneers and valuers -  cigarette cards

The Warwick and Warwick sale held on March 19 2014 included several rare golfing sets in good condition. They attracted an enthusiastic audience of wealthy collectors and dealers, which resulted in realisations way in excess of estimates. The rarest set on offer was the Cope 1900 Cope's Golfers, which has a Murray catalogue quote of £4,000. There was slight damage to the no.1 card but the balance was in good to excellent condition. The eventual realisation, after fiercely contested bidding, was £7,762, or almost double catalogue value.

Smith 1902 Champions of Sport Very rare cards!

Warwick and Warwick stamp and collectable auctioneers and valuers - w g grace Warwick and Warwick stamp and collectable auctioneers and valuers - j ball

Just how rare are the Smith 1902 Champions of Sport cards? The answer is very rare, judging from the results obtained in the Warwick and Warwick auction of January 23rd 2013. The sale contained 50 of the blue back cards in very good to excellent condition. Despite the fact that the set was incomplete and that there was some duplication and that the odd card showed signs of wear, the lot realised an astounding 4,255, or 85 per card, which is the quoted catalogue price in the Murray catalogue. The following lot consisted of 31 duplicated, red, multi-backed cards, in similar condition. The realisation was 2,415, or 80 per card.

Other good results from the sale, in the British tobacco section were:

In the foreign cigarette card section, the big surprise was lot 243, a collection of American part sets, in variable condition, contained in 3 old albums. It was estimated at 350, but it was eventually knocked down for 1,725. The successful bidder indicated that he bid a large figure compared with estimate because the collection contained 10 Goodwin baseball cards, rarely seen in this country.
