With nothing in the way of fresh news to report just ‘tryin’ to keep the spirit alive !
Sad news today !
Via con Dios , Cliff Branch . 3 time Super bowl champ with the Oakland Raiders , XI , XV and XVIII . Four pro bowl appearances in his 14 year career and one of the truly great flash wide receivers of all time . You are missed but never forgotten !
Sunday something ?
First up on deck , so far .
Nagel Auction , Stuttgart , Germany with their Rug , Carpet , Textiles and Islamic Art Sale scheduled on Sept.17th.
Well after a few passes through the sale inventory if your a serious rug or textile collector your gonna be sorely disappointed in this selection . Nothing at all in the way of an interesting or important piece to stroke the fire in the whole group .
Don’t get me wrong on this , if your into good late German condition items this just may be the sale for you. But otherwise you might jusr take a quick look through the catalog to be sure then forget about it .
Sorry just another boring European retail type offering !
