Keep Those Tennis Postcards! October 15 2014

A small Edwardian postcard album containing 49 cards showing tennis scenes has been valued at £200-£300 by ANTIQUES ROADSHOW experts RUPERT MAAS and ERIC KNOWLES. As the cards originally would have cost around one old penny each, that suggests each card has risen in value by 4000 to 6000% ! However postcard collecting is not about money, it s about the fun to be had seeking them out and the pleasure the images on the cards can bring.

The valuation was given at an event organised by PERKINS SLADE insurers. It was held on Tuesday 14 October 2014 at the newly-refurbished Edgbaston Priory Club.
