I have been a member over the last 2 years and found the information quite good, money a bit tighter this time year so havent renewed at the moment but will later in the year. It is another great source of information to the hobby which covers more than just football cards

I goto their fairs in Mont Albert most times, always good to get some things from. Have never considered joining as I've never bothered to look up what the benefits are, but if its only $30 and they give good info/articles on cig cards then I may consider it...

I think the following goes on at these meetings:

People introduce themselves to other members and talk about their card interests
Members are encouraged to bring there favorite cards along
Ideas for what they want to see in each newsletter.
upcoming fairs and auctions are discussed
Postal Auction lots are viewable at these meetings

Next ACS Fair July 19 2009
Next ACS Meeting 4th August 2009

The Following is the June 2009 report from the front page of the ACS June Newsletter

Well it is not often i predict something and it happens. In my April report I predicted I would find no footy or crickets cards in Egypt or Jordan and I was right. Not even a common Wills' 1933 Footballer. Oh well them's the breaks.
The football season is up and running and the "footy tragics" are again out and about on the lookout for their favorite cards.
As usual there are sets being issued for the 2009 season with perhaps the "A.F.L kickers" set of 64 being the frontrunners.
The Elusive red cards in this set are proving difficult to find. i've seen a few on eBay.
Then it goes on and talks about postcards.
Then the president of the ACS says that it is pleasing to note that as result of my appeal for new dealers at our fairs we had four or five new faces at the May fair. The beauty of new faces is that they always seem to be able to offer fresh stock which is what we collectors love

He finishes saying hope to see you all at the fairs and our meetings. :D :D :D :D

ERIC PANTHER Is President of the ACS

I put in some bids for the postal Auction that closed Yesterday for the 1904 Sniders & Abrahams Series A Blue Framlines Cards These had a grading of VG+ Condition. I was told the cards don't have creases or stains and the corners are fairly Sharp. . A South Melbourne card sold on eBay for $62.
Can anyone on this site tell me what price these cards are worth in this condition
Anyone that is an Australian Cartophilic society member Would have received the June Newsletter which listed the lots for the auction results should be known in 2 weeks.
There were kornies 1954 champions cards in VG Condition in this auction. i spoke to Gary nichols who Accepts the bids for the Postal Auction he told me he had these cards selling between $60-80 Each .
A Mint Craig & Hales card sold for just over $300 in a Past Auction.

1904 Sniders in VG+ are worth about $60-80. I was not aware of this auction. Can you tell me who ran it and how to find details about it? Is the catelogue online anywhere? regards Endo

I was the under bidder to all the sniders & Abrahams Blueframline Cards Some collector from Tasmania bought them.
Lot No 329 & 331 Sold for $100
Lot 332 $90
Lot 333 $95 tied bid
Lot 334 $90
Lot 335 $90
Lot 336 $95 tied Bid
All these were in VG+ Condition.
Some of the Kornies 1954 Footballers sold for $32. VG Condition

It just shows you that you can't get early cigarette cards for under $90

Good quality Sniders cards command very good prices and have shown steady and considerable price increases over the 5 years I have been collecting them. My view is that as an investment they are the best option in the footy card range, perhaps only bettered by Scanlens 1963. At present there are some Incidents in play cards already with good bids with several days to go. I'd be keen to hear if anyone is interested in swapping, selling or buying Sniders.

The fair was great today. Packed with punters and some new dealers. Got three cards from the guy you were talking about Johnny - a Clarke Ellis and a Nutty Bars Hoadleys (both to complete my sets) and a MacRobertsons 1/2 D Footballers. To cut three from my list in one day was fantastic, so pretty happy about going today. He also had a half dozen 63 Scanlens (incl 2 Barassis, $950 and $500) and complete sets of Licorice Larks club colours ($1900), about 100 Griffiths ($120) plus some McIntyres as you say (no Collingwoods though). Some beautiful old footy postcards too. There were plenty of rare cards from other dealers too.

I also see that seller had a full set of Black Crow :shock: and a set or near set of MacRobertson :shock: . Cant remeber the price but they were atleast 12k.
