So, let's look at what I picked up in the minis department. The earliest card is from 1901 and the most recent is from 1967. The cards averaged in price less than 75 cents each.
When browsing I wasn't looking for these specific cards. They just caught my eye.
The Lord High Chancellor reminded me of the judges on the Rumpole of the Bailey television series.
