Just had what some might call a bit of a result. (Others will just wince and jeer 'saddo')

It's taken nearly a month to complete and get it in my grubby mitts, but now I have I thought I'd share it.

On ebay about a month ago there was an auction of 8 cigarette cards. Taddy's. 1913/14 Taddy's Prominent Footballers to be precise.

It is unusual for cards from this series to surface in more than 1's and 2's so an auction lot of 8 was nost unusual. Especially as they go for about 40 from dealers catalogues (not that dealers often have any to sell)

One of the 8 cards was a Palace Player - J Johnson. Great stuff - well worth a bid. Just have to hope no-one else sees the item, and I could get a bargain if I time it right.

Trouble was 7 of the 8 cards were Man United players:(

Chances of 'no-one' noticing the lot were slim to nothing, and in no time the lot had exceeded the value of the one Palace card.

In the last 10 seconds, loads of bids went in, probably snipes, and the 8 cards went for the best part of 400.

However I then thought, what's the chances of the winning bidder being interested in the Palace card? I looked at their bid history and it was Busby Babes this and that and so on. So I contacted him, and sure enough, he was willing to sell me the Palace card for a Bullseye*

And sure enough after a few weeks of me wondering if I'd been taken for a ride, the card arrived today! Result!

The Card in question is in the bottom right of the scan, and some of you may even realise this is the chap whom there was a couple of articles on a couple of years ago in Palace Echo, when a load of memorabilia relating to him went on auction.

Was it worth it? Well I doubt another will surface for a while, and he is in "A Complete Record" as one of our all time greatest players, so maybe in time.


* (By not referring to the actual amount in words but in slang it hurts less)

Stu, look closely at the background of the Paul Barron picture in the same collection if you have it, it looks very much like Selhurst to me and not at all like the other WBA team pix.

stupalace 30-04-2008 06:58 AM

sorry only got a hand full of stickers in the album , hes not one of them

stupalace 27-10-2008 04:34 PM

Has anyone seen a Panini Championship album for 2009 ?

Dorking .Eagle 27-10-2008 08:11 PM

Not yet Stu.

stupalace 27-10-2008 08:16 PM

hmm , not looking good .
Dont think merlin released the usual ' kick off ' collection this year , they will probably do the big album .
Wonder if panini have given up on the idea

stupalace 30-11-2008 02:54 PM

I have seen some Championship stickers for 2009 on ebay.

as above they gone for a sticker album this time

some what of a dissapointment the stickers numbers are as follows
179- badge
180- stadium
181- star player julian speroni
182 kits
183 star player victor moses
184 star player nick carle
185 star player ben watson
186/187 shaun derry captain

and then these all half the size of the rest of the stickers
188 julian speroni
189 matt kawrence
190 clint hill
191 shaun derry
192 paddy mccarthy
193 jose fonte
194 james scowcroft
195 alan lee
196 nick carle
197 victor moses
198 sean scannell
199 danny butterfield
200 ben watson

now the confusing bit for collectors without an album , if you want to send off for the palace only stickers you will have to order the following numbers as the small stickers come as a pair,

188 julian speroni
189 matt kawrence
190 clint hill
191 shaun derry
192 paddy mccarthy
193 jose fonte
194 james scowcroft
195 alan lee
196 nick carle you need to order 174 aron gunnarson
197 victor moses you need to order 170 guillama beuzelin
198 sean scannell you need to order 166 keiren westwood
199 danny buterfield you need to order 152 luke varney
200 ben watson you need to order 147 jonjo shelvey

It's a pretty confusing numbering system - one wonders why panini couldn't just issue the half sized player stickers in same-club pairs?

One result though - not sure if it's done randomly, but my album already came with 6 stickers, and 3 of them were Palace - the large sized ones of Watson, Speroni and Carle!

stupalace 12-01-2009 05:53 PM

lol mine didnt . I should have gone through the albums in the shop ( already got 2 boxes on order ) so if anyone wants to swap etc etc .

JOHN1509 12-01-2009 06:23 PM

give it a few weeks, i'll get the palace stickers straight from the panini web-site,
I gave up many a year ago filling the books

stupalace 12-01-2009 06:26 PM

you could complete the whole album online if you wanted , use different email addresses . ive done it before lol paid with the same credit card and sent to same address
