September 2013 Compal Comics Auctions End Soon

The September 2013 Compal Comics auctions end on Tuesday, so you've only a few days left to browse through the latest catalogue and, if you wish, place a bid! Here are some of the goodies to get you interested.

It kicks off straight away with the very first auction offering FIFTY issues of Ally Sloper's Half Holiday, including several Christmas issues, which had a one-week name change to Ally Sloper's Christmas Holidays. The estimate for them is £120 - £150.

The first issue of The Beano is also up for grabs, and this particular copy comes from Denis Gifford's collection! He slightly trimmed it to fit it into a plastic folder in the 1970's, but it is still expected to sell in the region of £2,500 - £3,000 - a lot of money for only 28 pages!

At lot #73 is a fantastic looking Oor Wullie page from the pen of the great Dudley Watkins. And it could be all yours if you place a bid in the estimated selling range of £400 - £450!

Also offered are two complete years of The Beezer from 1960 and 1961, graded in fine - near mint condition! They estimated to sell for at least £400 apiece.

And the last lot I'll be showing here is lot #106. There are nine issues of the very scarce The Big One comic from the mid 1960's, including the first issue and the only fireworks issue. Graded at very good - very good plus, they are expected to sell for anywhere between £90 - £120.

The bidding closes at 8PM UK time on Tuesday, so if you've seen something here you're interested in, or see something in the catalogue you like, be sure to get your bid in soon! There are five different catalogues, and you can look through them by clicking on the "Catalogue" tab on the website, and selecting which one you would like to browse first.
