Coming up in our Toys, Postcards and Cigarette Cards auction is Lot 77- Allen & Ginter. Complete set in plastic sleeves with The Worlds Champions (1st) generally fair to good. Cat. £3,500. (R)

This is one of Allen & Ginters most popular sets with its stunning artwork on the front and the individuals listed on the back under the genre they are in, surely appealing to many prospective buyers.


The baseball cards in this lot and the boxing cards are very popular and sought after by American buyers. One of our viewers adds, “There are 8-10 cards in this lot that will be very popular, especially among the American buyers, but fortunately for me, at the time of the auction they’ll be in bed!”. Another viewer explains “Annie Oakley is an America hero, so that card is going to be very sought after”. Annie Oakley was an American Sharpshooter who starred with Buffalo Bill, which she joined in 1885.


One of our viewers was adamant that “The estimate is going to be blown out the water”, which we all hope to see.
