Nothing stopping you adding to them Mick.

I will be updating our list later to see how far along we are.

Also come up with an idea on what to do with this list but need some thought first.

If you dont contribute you wont find out what my idea is!!!

Collectively the Guinea Golds are the cards I enjoy the most, there is in excess of 20,000 cards including all the varieties, probably about 8000+ images. I suppose that's a bit general but it does complete your list. There are many cards I like in the Ogden's selection some a little pricey so I suppose they do not qualify.

There is one Guinea Gold that stands out for me and that's in the "Boar War & Boxer Rebellion & Miscellaneous" Base D adopted number 176 "Ogden's new Cigarette and Tobacco Factory, covering Five Acres" They did issue in 2 different bases in both small & large but that's too much detail. That's my first nomination. Why, well that's were it all happened. It opened in 1900 they were clearly proud of their factory hence the card and I intend to use it to front my eventual web sight.

Cannot remember where I purchase it but cat. £1.00 but is a premium card so probably would have to pay £10.00

Hi Ogdenscards - thanks for posting an image of this one! I've been looking for a while for an example to add to my Base D 'Boer War and Misc.' and haven't had any joy. If you do have any duplicates I'd be interested - same goes for the Earl of Albermarle actually...

Cheers,
Sam

p.s. Nice chess board
Always interested in buying rare bird cards

Cedric have both, the image shown is the large card but do have a small duplicate.
Plus many more just package about 1000 cards off to a collector to view mainly base M's

Right Wolfie lets get this list up and now i can have more than 3 then here goes Margaret Halstan ( i choose her over Edna May purely from an appreciative choice ) from the set by B Morris & Sons Ltd entitled Actresses ( black & white ) 1898 the reason i have chosen this is that she pops up in quite a few old sets Churchmans Boer War and Actresses in quite a few Ogdens and Phillips sets of that time It was the first full set of beauties i got and for cards issued in 1898 the price for this set in catalouge is suprisingly low for such a photographic set a la Guinea Gold type and for anyone who likes the old beauties i would say this set is a must and affordable If it works out price per card and 30 in this set so i would say i paid 60 pence for it

Welcome back Capt wondered where you had been , kitchens hey as easy a A &BC , look and learn Wolfie may cut out a few muttering here and there  ;) And onto Ipswich Town personally Sir Bobby Robson did a good job in the time he was manager at Newcastle but for me and Wolfie may agree the great Joe Harvey was more Newcastle through and through and deserved a more fitting accolade though i do beleive they are putting a commerative plaque up at St James for him and like Mick McCarthy a Yorkshire man Though i wouldnt worry about naming the stand after him your problem at Ipswich lies with the following

The Keiron Dyer Treatment Room
The Michael Chopra Casino
The Eric Gates Beauty Palour
The Alan Brazil Hairdressers
 ;D

Just to add a little note about the Morris Actress. These cards were once cat at £30 ea a good while ago and someone found a unopened box full of mint sets that had not been distributed.
The market was then flooded with them hence the considerable price drop and the reason why so many are found in excellent condition.

O.K. I can add another one or two...

1930 Richard LLoyd & Sons - Famous Cricketers Puzzle Series #21 because the artist turned a 'Bad man' into Don Bradman, which I'm sure is the first time this link occured in Don's life!

1921 McIntyre's Chocolates - 1920/21 Australian Cricketers - C.G. Macartney because the eyes on the image almost appear lifelike and give a hint to the steely nature that Macartney played his cricket with. All 15 cards from the series (3 inches x 2 inches) look magnificent when displayed - obtaining the Warwick Armstrong Redemption card is probably the only thing that could improve on them - I wish!

Keep collecting...

I do like the badman/bradman card. Excellent idea ;D

With you Mick, Joe Harvey was always in my mind the best Newcastle Manager bled black & white, then it would be Keegan because he understood that we dont expect to win trophies or leagues but we do expect teams to play for us and be proud of the top. Then Sir Bobby for the same reasons as Keegan, and I would count Pardew as a geordie manager, he understands the public and tries. So guess i now have at least 3 more cards to buy. lol

ok next on the list is.

Golden Eagle (female) from Players Birds & their young card #8.
The way the mother is drawn staring out looking for danger, trying to protect the fluffy white chick at her feet, sums up how some cards can show you nature in its finest form in the days before Mr Attenbrough and the Discovery channel.
