Proof Cards & Sheets - Collectable or not?
« on: March 29, 2012, 07:04:11 AM »
As most collectors would be aware there are many Printer's Proof cards (Sheets) that have reached the open market and become a tradeable or collectable item

What is the general view on their collectability, rarity and Value?

Consensus among the collecting fraternity here in Australia increasingly suggests they are by their very nature, rarer than those produced and distributed normally, and should therefore be considered rarer (and probably more valueable)

I have a few of the 1901 Will's (UK) & 1909 Will's (Aust.) Cricket cards that are seemingly cut from proof Sheets, and have a complete sheet of 1934/35 and 1938 Allen's (Aust) Cricketers. I've checked the thickness against their equivalen cards in my collection and they are identical and no tampering or paper layer loss is apparent - so I retain them for their rarity...

Just wondered what the general UK view is?
