I am indebted to Paul Chauveau and Brian Houghton for contacting me with links to eBay sales in the past few days. Firstly Paul got in touch to flag-up card 191. Alex Troupe (Everton) which sold for £21.50, leading us to wonder just what kind of a person bids that kind of money for a ‘bog-standard’ and seemingly readily available small card. But that just pales into insignificance when compared to the one that Brian alerted me to – card 1254. Hughie Gallacher in his Airdrie days which went for the astonishing price of £127.00!! Lee Graves (collectabilia.is.back) will be rubbing his hands with glee at the outcome of both of these auctions, I’m sure! Clicking the links will take you to the completed auctions.
One thing that these two auctions do prove is that you can’t take the cards in this set for granted and that we really shouldn’t be too surprised when they go for more than the usual couple of quid each! 🙂
