Internet activity has been relatively subdued with no obvious feeding
frenzies. Another UK multi-card
item, two items from which are shown. here fetched £72. This was for three of

Croydon aviation cards sold for over £15 – many non-aviation cards from this
time by this publisher are still on sale for 50p. The item concerned was a repro

period unless well protected.
The new Cathay Pacific history set
of large cards showing stewardesses has been on offer from Hong Kong at a
considerable range of prices and most have sold due to the combination of the
two strong collecting themes of Cathay and Stwardesses.
Oddly these cards have edges which have edges mimicking stamp
