SPORTS BUDGET 1929 & 1930

I have 20 issues of Sports Budget. I can’t find out a lot about them but would be willing to sell at £5.00 a copy. I did find this description;

“Excellent weekly newspaper concentrating mostly on football-either short stories or factual reports. First issue January 13th 1923. It is printed on newspaper stock. Printed and published by The Amalgamated Press from the Fleetway House Farringdon Street London. It had 24 pages and sold for 2d.

Amalgamated Press had tried different football formats earlier with Football Favourite (4/9/20-30/4/21) and Sports for Boys (20/10/20-21/4/21) and seemingly came up with the winning and much more long lived Sports Budget.

The main bulk of its stories were dedicated to football, although there were alternatives in the shape of cricket and rugby.”

Detective Pulps (UK editions)

All complete but not in the best condition hence the price. I do like the type casting on the FBI Detective Cover, the clean cut Dick, the innocent Kid and the sly looking kidnapper complete with cig.

MARQUEZ

MARC MARQUEZ

born to win

He might not have as much charisma as the GOAT but he is getting there, none can deny his riding ability, his guts or his will to win. His smile, might wrongly, seem forced but what a lot he has to smile about.

This 2014 192 page offering by Marco Masetti is not a book with illustration, but illustrations with a book. This copy has not been read and is a bargain at £7.50

Readers Digest – Classics

There is a real snobbery in the second hand book trade against Readers Digest, it may have some foundation in their “aggressive” sales technique for the digest, or it could be founded in the bias against “condensed books” but where would doctors and dentist waiting rooms have been in the past without Readers Digests (or National Geographic)?

I could also be pat of the second hand book dealers general unloving view of “Coffee Table” publications. All of the above are probably unfair and unjustified, but in the case of the “Classic” series the bias id definitely unjustified. The books are well bound, well presented with good clear printing, the only criticism  I could make (being churlish) is the definition of what are classics has a definite American flavour. But in the light of the very strange inclusions in the “Oxford World Classics” the criticism is definitely churlish.

I have about 10 foot of these titles in my shop all at the bargain price of £4.50.
