West Dorset
For Sale: Very Large Collection of Cigarette and Trade Card

My father, Robert George Torrens (1903 - 1981), was an avid collector of cards most of his life until his death. He was a founder member of many collecting clubs. He had a bespoke cabinet for his collection, so most of the sets are in extremely good condition. Most sets that are not in the cabinet are in Albums.

There are also many books on collecting as well as many part completed sets and loose cards.

His collection is probably the most interesting one to have become available for many decades. His 'Card List' contained some 1544 sets. I have found a good number of unlisted sets.

Since his death, his collection had been with my brother in Madeley, near Stoke-on-Trent. We have now decided to sell the collection, so I am listing it on-line.

The collection is now in Dorset (near Crewkerne) and photos can be provided on request,

Cataloguing and photographing the collection is proceeding. There are well over 100 complete sets already listed and over 60,000 cards so listing will take some time!
