April Imaging Complete at Long Last!!

The imaging for James and Sons April sale is finally complete (It took me until 3 O’clock this afternoon to finish off the last bits), and although there will be some heavy work loading and unloading the van and laying out auction lots (I have been given responsibility for setting out the book lots to best advantage – big surprise!), I may finally get time to do some database work, for the first time in a while.

As well as the last lots of Liebig Company picture cards, following on from several thousand older cigarette cards, there was some interesting ephemera in todays lots.

Bad light spoiled a classic finish between Lancashire and Warwickshire yesterday, meaning that save for Yorkshire’s thumping of Northampt0nshire every game in this round of championship matches was drawn. When the light dipped below the critical level Warwickshire needed 25 with five overs remaining and five wickets still standing – all four results possible although a tie or a Lancashire win would have had generous odds at that stage.

As usual I have some pictures…

No prizes for guessing why this appealed to me!

Although they do image well, by this stage I was silently cursing the name of Justus Liebig

This was the very last lot of Liebig cards - each of this lots involved picking out six or seven cards from a whole ring binder full (as this was the maximum I could fit on the scanner), laying them out, scanning them, editing the scans and finally returning them to the binder.
