Your editor was recently able to do some research at the Sherlock Holmes Collections at the University of Minnesota Library. One of the many items I came across was this delightful cartoon from the May 20, 1959 issue of Punch that has Sherlock Holmes apparently having a yard sale of items from his various cases.

Eight items have price tags. Can anyone match the eight items with the correct stories?
