Default Wonder what else there is...

I've put a small group of these cards in my collection and wondering if there are any others similar to them (in size) that I can add. i've seen several pre 1900s but are of the larger style. any leads or scans would be great

A lot. You're talking about British/UK sets from 80-100+ years ago. You cannot fathom the amount of material there is. Collecting back then was an adult activity and they kept their cards in extremely good condition. Go to the UK eBay and create a few searches, you'll be amazed.

Just remember, most of the issues are not difficult to find even in high grade. Don't hop on the first example you see. Take the time to feel out these cards and see how low they can be had for. Then grab the ones you like at a reasonable cost.

There are a lot of British card dealers, and many also carry stuff from the former British empire as well, like issues for South Africa.

Outside of the more difficult sets, a lot of the sets are collected as sets, and only in what we'd think of as really nice condition.


I bought a lot of mixed non-sports, maybe a couple thousand of them in rough shape for under $100. It came in a big flat rate box, and the packing material was a binder of I think 1991 Score that may have been a complete set, and a couple thousand of the same score set loose surrounding the stacks of the British cards. Sold the binder and the rest of the packing for about half of what I'd paid for the whole thing.

I am a collector of pre-war UK golf cards, eg. Harry Vardon, Bobby Jones, Tom Morris etc. and British dealers have by far the best inventories. Check out rare cigarettes.com. They have a great selection of not only golf but tennis, boxing, and if you care cricket. Never seen any baseball but keep hoping for a T215 Pirate. So far, no luck.

I don't want to speak for Leon but I found one a few months ago. They are not that easy to find in my experience, although I hadn't been actively checking traditional auction houses (got mine on eBay). They aren't super expensive - I paid about $25 IIRC. But I can see asking prices being higher. They aren't readily available.
