Thanks for the contact details.
There are too many cards of incomplete sets to list. I am not a collector so looking for a good home if the cards are worth it.

Welcome to the forum. If you are able to get a few photos (just a spread on a table is fine!) Im sure we would be able to give you a feel for what you have and point out any that are particularly scarce/valuable. You may even get offers on here for certain sets/singles :)

Always interested in buying rare bird cards and general reference material (books, magazines etc.)

Hi if you did decide to complete the sets you have, you may be surprised how enjoyable the task would be, very satisfying. You may also be surprised at the availability of the cards you require and not to expensive.

You may be fortunate to have cards that are much rarer than most but the hunt for difficult cards is part of the fun, you never know what the next card will be to add to your collection.

Some issuers always turn up in collections, Will's Players to name two, that the majority of their issues are relatively common. Look for the ITC clause on the back usually at the bottom. The clause Says 'BRANCH OF THE IMPERIAL TOBACCO CO (OF GREAT BRITAIN & IRELAND) LTD. This means the cards were issued after formation of the ITC ,which was an amalgamation of the main tobacco manufacturers in 1902. Normally their cards are plentiful, not high value but great and varied subject matter. There are others that didn't join, Gallahers for example who are also a plentiful issuer.

Cards that have high value are normally before 1902.

Hope this helps 
Always looking for interesting cards and associated goods issued by Ogden's you can see samples of cards I am looking for in the wants section.
