HELP!!!!!

I have been chasing these things for almost 40 years, and I NOT getting any younger!

There are 18 different cards in the set; but 11 different backs for each front, making a master set of 198 cards.

So far, I have acquired 77 different.

Will buy or trade, I have a few extra; or have other car/motorcycle/racing cards to trade.

Here are the different backs:

Motorcycles – British 1914

Bellwood, Golds (blue), Golds (grey), Golds (grey) – unnumbered, Harrison, Hobson, Kinnear, Newman, Robert Bruce, Taylor Wood, Themans.

Jon.

Hi Jon,

I wasn't aware that there were so many issuers! The Golds Motor Cycle Series is well known over here in the UK and cards come up fairly regularly, for around £25 plus.

I can see 3 on eBay (UK) currently, 2xGolds and 1xTaylor Wood.

Plus there are 9 cards in the AitchCard June Auction here: http://www.aitchcards.co.uk/monthlyauction.asp

AitchCard auction guide prices (c.£50-£60) are fairly high, hopefully you can win with bids lower than these.

Tim - thanks for posting!

I check Ebay-UK weekly, and many of my collection have been acquired through Ebay-UK.

I also monitor the London auctions, but have not found many of these cards there.

I was unaware of the Aitchcard auction, and will monitor them.

Golds blue backs are by far the most common. I have 16/18 of these.

Again, thanks for posting.

Jon.
