Discontinued Albums and Pages
Much to the surprise of many collectors and suppliers, Stanley Gibbons stopped selling some of their most popular albums in 2019. Some had already been withdrawn in the previous year or two.
Numerous collectors would rather carry on with the same albums and pages than move to something completely different (or even just a little different).
Here's a list of what we currently have available of some of SG's most popular albums and pages. Note that these are original products, not reproductions or "replacements".
We've also started to add some older lines of which we have stock.
UPDATED PAGE at Monday 29th January 2024 We've marked up a number of things which are now sold out, but added some others which were not previously listed.

Second-hand binders.
In the listings below we refer to "very good second-hand binders". Any of these binders will be working and practical, and will not be horribly disfigured. They will show signs of general wear and age, may have labels on the spine or elsewhere on the cover, or writing inside the cover, might have bumps and scratches, or nicks or dents, or little tears in the covering material, or have the colour faded on the spine. These are of different ages, so the finish may not be consistent, and colours have varied over the years. It's unlikely that any binder will have all these things wrong with them !  Some are actually really nice !
If you want something to match your existing albums, these will do the job.
If you want something perfect, don't buy these. If you are fussy, don't buy these.
