The Player's fixture cards are certainly more expensive.😲

Yes, I Wouldn't pay that much for them though. Especially when you can bide your time and they will, sooner or later, turn up on eBay for a lot less. Whereas, how many; Bunsen, Battocks, Clarnico or Postcard Pinnace cards, have been listed on the auction site? Very very few. :)

Speaking of postcard and indeed all the larger sized pinnace, has anyone else noticed that it's always the same cards that are available in auction, on eBay and indeed in FCCM? I've got a fair few of the Shakers, even some duplicates, but never come across any new ones, only the ones I've got☹️.
UtS!

First time I've 'browsed' FCCM - like being a child in a sweetshop! Made me realise how many issuers and issues I knew little about.

A small query about which someone may enlighten me - the PA Adolph (Subbuteo) issue seems to be priced at 40 per card - am I mis-reading the format of the item heading?

Thanks for clearing that up. Obviously one of the 'issues I knew little about'!

I would guess that Garry has.
I bought about 33 on eBay many years ago. The vendor obviously didn't realise what he was selling as he was only asking 2.99 for each card as Buy-It-Now items so I bought the lot. Kept the Vic Metcalfe card and sold on all the rest to Garry.
It's the only time that I've ever made a decent profit selling-on cards!

Picked up a few nice additions to the collection from FCCM :)

The last one needed - out of 8 - from an Anonymous Paper set, allegedly produced in Nottingham. No.45 Malky MacDonald. :)

The set is shown here on Alan's site.
http://cartophilic-info-exch.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/football-snaps-famous-footballers.html?m=1

Also picked up a few k size and medium size pinnace cards. These weren't Brentford cards though - as I have a good selection already bar a few variations of the k size cards - but a number of ex or future Bees depicted for their Club at the time. As they're good quality photo cards, they scan well and can be enlarged or used for reference purposes as some of these players aren't shown in Brentford team photos. :)

Also just sent off a second order!!

I picked up some cards that I have been able to move on at a profit and this has allowed me to go back for another nice anonymous card...... details when in hand! ;)

The card I ordered from Garry has gone missing. :(

It's been a month since the order and no sign of it. Even visited other addresses just in case it went there and not to me. Absolutely gutted.

The card was an Anonymous Brentford FC colour shield. Not seen it before and sadly not going to again. I'll post a copy of the scan - sent to me by Garry - later today just in case anyone sees it. Makes me angry. :(

That must be SO annoying, Paul, and something that I always fear.
Fortunately I've not lost any Town card ... yet ...
Heartfelt commiserations.

That's very upsetting.  I feel really sorry for you.  Was it tracked?  I've been very lucky.  The only things I've not received were things that dishonest sellers never sent.  If it's something irreplaceable I would always send it registered.
