    As some of you may be aware, I recently won an auction lot from Leski Auctions and had no real idea what I was getting.
    I did know I had won the following:

    1965 Scanlens "Cricketers" [10/40 + 1 spare]
    1958 Australian Licorice "Test Cricket Series" [1/32]
    Bradman - The Don Declares set of 8 cassette tapes in folder
    Cricket Books [x4].


    I mainly bid on this lot for the cards to start me off on my set chase so here is what I got:
    DSCN0232.
    #1 David Sincock (Australia), #2 Ian Chappell (Australia), #4 Barry Shepherd (Australia),
    #12 A Rare Cricket Photo, #14 Bob Simpson (Australia), #17 Brian Booth (Australia),
    #19 Micky Stewart (England), #30 Alan Connolly (Australia), #31 Wes Hall (West Indies)

    DSCN0234.
    #34 Basil Butcher (West Indies), #12 A Rare Cricket Photo, Peter Loader (England)
    #26 Lindsay Kline (Australia)

    I have had a look at a fair few of these cards over the last few years so I have to say I am VERY impressed with the condition of the cards I got.......I was not expecting them to be in such great condition! One thing was unhappy about was that they were brilliantly packed and nicely sealed inside a team bag WITH AN ELASTIC BAND AROUND THEM! Needless to say a very stern email was sent to the appropriate person.....lucky for them it was not tight and no damage was done!

    Two questions for you guys:
    1. What year and set is the Peter Loader card from and
    2. Considering what these are selling for on eBay, should I sell them and make some $$$ to put towards other set chases or should I collect the set (knowing it will cost a fair bit)?

    I should note the cricket books I got were worth a read and the Bradman Tapes and album were in like new condition!

    Look forward to your responses :thumbsup:

    I just did a quick search on eBay and now realise why you said that!
    1965 Scanlens | eBay

    F*ck me that was the bargain of the year for me! Some are selling for $30-50 each including an Ian Chappell that is not 1/2 as good as my one!

    Maybe I should just sell what I have and make some money because it's going to cost me a fair bit to complete this set.

    OK - Change question 2 to - Should I sell them or attempt to collect the set? lol

    Clearly you should sell them to me.

    Except for the wrapper, Stewart and Simpson i bought the rest of those on ebay

    Still cant believe i got outbid on that wrapper - still dirty about it.
