RL Collectors Fair 13 June at St.Helens

12 May 2015 - 09:51 PM

Dear Friend,


The next Rugby League Collectors Fair will be at Red Vee, St Helens RLFC on Saturday 13 June, 10.30am to 1pm. I hope you can make it, please let other people know, we do not have an advertising budget, so mentions on messageboards, forums etc are very welcome. There is parking near the ground, and tea and coffee will be available at the event. We would like to thank St Helens RLFC and the St Helens RL Heritage Group for their support of this event


We currently have 9 stalls booked, so if you are interested in running a stall, or know someone who is, please ask them to contact me. There is a charge for running a stall, and for this event for customers there will be a voluntary raffle to help offset our postage costs. London League Publications Ltd will be donating a couple of books as prizes.


Finally, please find attached a flyer for our latest books, which I hope will be of interest to you.


Best wishes,


Peter Lush

Rugby League Auctions

07 May 2015 - 12:56 PM

Way back in the day RL roadshows (often compered by David Howes or Mick Morgan) would travel round clubsfor fundraising evenings (usually a player's benefit season). There would always be an auction of memorabilia.


Nowadays RL stuff regularly turns up at sports auction houses.


Here's a recent one selling Jack Grundy memorabilia:




Graham Budd is pretty big for football items I believe.


These are cricket specialists but have always been ok for a few RL items:




And I found these too with rugby stuff:




Do you use auction houses?


Are there any others out there we should be tracking?

A Flickr gallery for your collection.

24 April 2015 - 11:35 AM

Over on the football progs collectors forum there is a lot of collectors who have scanned their collection and arranged them for viewing in a flickr account (or similar other hosting websites). It looks very time consuming, but some of the results are excellent.


Has any RL collector done this? Thinking about it?
