MEMORABILIA SALE 98
The following articles will be available for sale from March 30th when we will be opening any bids received before that date. As some of the articles are very rare and more desirable than others and to give fans worldwide time to reply who don't have the advantage of e-mail we've decided to use a bidding system. You can send bids by e-mail to me; by fax to 0044 (UK) 1620826144 or by normal post to - The Company Scotland, PO BOX 3, Haddington, East Lothian, Scotland, EH41 3TA.
The fax line and postal address are both secure to send credit card details as is the credit card hotline 0044 (UK) 1620824111. Normal advice is given to E-mail users that we cannot ensure security on details sent by electronic mail.
All bids must be accompanied by appropriate funds which will not be cashed or presented unless your bid is successful. Please ensure you have adequate funds to cover your bids to avoid any confusion remembering there will be a delay between response and presentation.
When responding please outline your bids clearly using the catalogue numbers provided.
Include your home address, your telephone number (home and work if applicable), your e-mail address (if applicable) and any second choices which should be marked as such. This will ensure that should you be successful with your first choice bids your second will be disregarded in order to avoid overspending. It may be a good idea to give us instructions on maximum limits if you decide to use credit cards.
