    Large collection on Ebay

    Anyone seen this on EBay?

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Huge-coll...wAAOSwqzFd0wSR

    Pretty substantial collection though not a lot of description about the condition of the programmes.

    Iím no expert on whether this is a good or bad price or somewhere in the middle. Fact that itís located in Guildford means most people interested couldnít look at the collection which is something I would like to do if putting that much money down.

    Certainly sounds like a lot of items, but the Alan Lugton books alone are worth a decent amount.

    Spotted it last week. As you say itís a big outlay.

    Is it worth it? Constituent parts broken down individually and purchased one at a time, it may well be. However, would someone, who isnít already a collector, want to shell out £1200 to get there collection started? Iím not sure.

    Wonder if itís up for sale by someone on this forum?

    Never saw the listing until now. The Scottish services is worth £200 min. The Coronation Cup issues are also 3 figures each. Obviously depending on condition.
    Very nice collection but think £1200 is a bit high as no postponed issues are included. If the 3 55/6 European Cup Homes were there, then it may be worth the asking price.
    The lugton hardback books were on a few weeks ago and only made £10 each !!!!

    There are 30 large 50s issues. I see one is v Spurs. Even average a tenner each, thatís £300. Scottish Services and Celtic 48/9 must be £250-300 between them. 3 Coronation Cup Issues minimum £200
    I would suggest £800 is a very good price for the lot.
    No, Iím not the seller 😂

    Noticed that it ended last night with one bid for the £800 minimum asking price.

    i was tempted to enquire a little deeper about the general condition of the programmes. If decent condition it might have been possible to sell some of them on and recoup some money while filling gaps in an existing collection, but I just donít have the time for it just now (nor the £800 really ).

    Anyone on here the winning bidder?
