During the course of this year, The Fourth Garrideb has issued three souvenir cards to commemorate gatherings of our group.

Souvenir Card for the 2018 BSI Dinner and Gaslight Gala

Our first card was issued on January 12 for the annual dinner of the Baker Street Irregulars and the Gaslight Gala (don’t pay any attention to the fact that the card says January 13, which was the date of 2017 event). 300 cards were produced, with 180 for the BSI Dinner, 100 for the Gaslight Gala and 20 for the dinner of The Women. The card features illustrations by the three different illustrators for when The Adventure of the Three Garridebs appeared in The Strand, Collier’s and various syndicated newspapers.
