I told my 8 year old son that David Tenant was going to be there so he decides he'd rather have a picture with him rather than Arthur Darvill (sorry Rory!!) £35 instead of £15!!

First Class Promotion Jason!

It's good to see that you recognize that the best way to promote a set is by getting cards into the hands of people that can become collectors.

Sometimes the industry is guilty of promoting to those already committed to purchase the product.

And Diana Rigg was lovely Big Grin This was a great event, met lots of talented artists and a few card dealers so may indulge in a couple of boxes of cards tomorrow. Unfortunately Alex Kingston cancelled but my son got to meet quite a few of the other actors from Dr Who.

Met David Tennant today!!! Also met Paul Hart, Raj, and a couple of other dealers. Got lucky on a box of Vampirella with a lovely sketch by Sean Pence and pulled the JLH/David Conrad dual from a Breygent SDCC pack.

I see signed autograph cards of Diana Rigg are starting to appear on the bay. Supposedly unsigned Promos that look like official autograph cards which Ms Rigg signed at the show. Roll Eyes

The card that is up at the moment is genuine. The show organisers would only emboss signed cards (which this is). This was the card that was sold for £10. The auto was considerably more.

Wish I lived in the UK. These are the kind of people I would love to get autographs of. They very rarely pop-up in the US (usually in Chicago when they do Frown)

I had such a crush on Diana Rigg watching re-runs of the Avengers back in the 80's. It was such a shame what they did to the franchise with that movie. Just terrible.

Do they ever have entertainment type shows with people signing autographs like this in the Northeast?

You'll find her autograph in our Avengers 50th Anniversary set as well as signed sketch cards. We also produced some cards for the EMS show which fans were able to buy and get signed by Diana Rigg, we stated they were unsigned on the reverse to prevent any forgeries but Showmasters stamped them for authentication.

Chiller Theatre in North NJ (happening this weekend) usually has a really good guest lineup, but I haven't been there in years. It's very expensive and usually pretty disorganized.

"I DID NOT REALISE RED99 WAS A MODERATOR"

I or the Moderators will decide when I stop posing valid questions on this site.

Its not a valid question. This was posted earlier in the thread that card was being released. Instead you use words like supposed and roll eyes
