Convention 2021

Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th October - SALISBURY, WILTSHIRE
2021 Convention Commemorative Card


The "Card Scene" magazine calls this "A Happy Reunion", and indeed it was. It reports that the event was "a warm and welcome return for dealers, collectors, and Society members, and there were plenty of smiles, and tall stories, to go around, despite a relatively small attendance. 

It was indeed wonderful to meet our friends again, though we did say that anyone attending could continue to wear masks, and there were facilities for frequent hand sanitising. Social distancing was also observed. Another change was that there was no cafe or catering this year, only vending machines for drinks. 

There were eighty tables all full of cards, albums, ephemera, etc, from around the country and around the globe, dating from the nineteenth century to today.

And some of the dealers who had come out especially for the event were Paul Hart, Mike Heard, Keith Johnson, Paul Lynch, Chris Pozzetti, and John Shaw. Loddon Auctions also had a stand. 

Our swapping tables for modern cards saw brisk business as well, this year we specialised in Match Attax (2009-2021), Panini Adrenalyn XL, Shoot Out, Pokemon, Sainsbury Lego, and Sainsbury Pixar Heroes.

And the postal auction lots were on view for thirty minutes a day.
