WHAT DO I COLLECT
« on: April 29, 2018, 02:13:10 PM »
NOT BEEN MANY NEW TOPICS OF LATE SO THOUGHT OF THIS ONE FOR EACH PERSON TO GIVE A BREIF MENTION OF THEiR COLLECTION.

I THINK WHAT I COLLECT IS WELL KNOWN BUT IF NOT, ANYTHING THAT WAS ISSUED OR HAS A CONNECTION WITH THE OGDEN'S FACTORY.

If collectors start contributing then will place some photographs on of my recent purchases.

As for me Ogdens Guinea Golds and Tabs.
Started by just collecting one card of each number/type but after a visit to Ogdenscards saw the light and now collect all base variations.
If anyone has an interest in Guinea golds please pursue your interest because they are not as half complicated as they first seem and there is plenty of help on here for new collectors.

I collect mainly German cards due to having lived a long time in Germany where they were the easiest ones to obtain.  I suppose that being in France I now ought to try collecting French cards but I don't have any space left to keep them.
I come from somewhere long ago...
and now there's no way back

I collect pretty much anything and enjoy the chase of trying to find bargains in auctions,boot sales,and the like.

I'm not keen on spending top money on cards so its like Christmas if I find something  :)

I particularly like Radio related cards

Cricket Cards - Cigarette & Trade card production from the late 1870's/early 1880's until approx 100 years later after which the proliferation & sheer number of issues just becomes too much to manage with the same level of "completeness!" Its a fairly significant collection and resides in almost 30 albums (with page configurations of 20/16/12/9/4 & 2 pocket card sleeves). They are sorted chronologically (the best way I know) and along the journey I have added other collectible items - wrappers, boxes, badges, tins etc that also have a cricket theme, but mostly related to the card manufacturers...

The collection has representation of almost every recorded set known to be issued and some from others that haven't been! Its taken two decades of hard work, time & effort chasing down cards to complete sets. It represents a significant chunk of my time and money in the past 20 years, but still brings great satisfaction & interest to me every day.

Without pushing the "personal barrow" too far, I've been told by other Australian cricket cards collectors that it is one of the most significant collections in Australia, so it is comforting to know that others have an appreciation for what I've managed to put together. On top of the collection I have also developed a digital scan database of >30,000 cricket card images, which has helped me to identify rarities, errors and variations and that has also allowed me to grow the collection and identify unusual cards to acquire...

I still have a four page 'Wants List' and am always looking for cards to reduce it.

Thats a good response, sort of introduces each other to each other and potentially gives the examples of common collections hope this theme continues.

the main part of my collection centres on cigarette and trade cards featuring birds, feathers, eggs, nests etc. But I only look at cards issued pre-1970 as I don't find most bird cards issued after that date particularly attractive (just my opinion!).

I do collect anything I like though which I know lots of us do. With that in mind I collect pretty much all cards! I don't tend to go for cricket or sport themed sets but there are some early ones I have on the list. Wills Scissors Footballers, Wills Footballers and Flags etc - they are stunning cards. I also have a pretty large Pok?mon card collection which is always being added to.

I have around 150 sets on my wants list at present (excluding Pok?mon or types I always keep an eye out for). I am keen to get this down this year but its the same old story. For every set I cross off I'll have added another that I want to target...
Always interested in buying rare bird cards

Its interesting to see what collectors like, perhaps this may encourage other collectors to participate and contact like minded collectors.

I do like to see different collections and see how they are presented which educates what is out there.

This topic leads me to my next suggestion, but I think I will open a new topic to discuss, it involves the evening of the convention.

Mainly cricket, military and beauties, particularly the earlier issues, mainly tobacco but some trade. As Sam said above, if I like the card I will collect it.

Yes Chris, I believe you have also purchased some really good Ogden's Miniature playing cards

Mainly cards I like but have a preference for cricket cards.
Sadly they are often fairly expensive.

The cricket cards are certainly a common theme, I take it you all have the cricketers in the Ogden's series, Tabs & Guinea Golds.

What if any cards in particular are you looking for? you never know one collector may have that elusive card.

Steve F, you certainly seem to have  a very interesting detail and well presented collection, i bet when you find another addition its a bit of an event.

The two Wills series of 1896 and 1901 I particularly like. When they are for sale they are usually above my budget though.
