Okay, didn't expect this so soon, but happy to see it. Star Trek Discovery on the cover. RR Parks History of the Roman Emperors Promo inside. Lots of cool articles, but my favorite is Top 10 Christopher Walken cards. #1 will surprise the heck out of readers.

You have a lot more patience than me ! I could accept a one off problem but is this not the third issue in a row for you with them having assured you the problem had been fixed ? At the very least I would be wanting a free extension of subscription as compensation .

Wow, that might be the earliest appearance I've heard of for NSU in a long time. It usually arrives around the end of January. Who is Christopher Walker?

Ack! I meant Christopher Walken. auto-correct might have changed it on me. I'll go back and fix that.

There is a Christopher Walker, a British actor, so I thought he might be in one of the popular TV shows I haven't seen but didn't ever remember anyone on Card Talk mentioning that name.

A Top 10 list of Walken cards sounds like fun. A few years ago, I saw a "Poolhall Junkies" set for sale. The seller wanted over $100 because it was so rare - only given to cast and crew of the movie. I looked for it again after thinking about it but it was gone.

That one was fast.

Top 10 Christopher Walken sounds like a nice idea.

I Have got a free extension - but fat lot of good when they keep sending them to Australia despite NUMEROUS emails reminding them I am in UK - I've almost given up

I'm guessing #1 is "Ronnie Walken". Are all of the others Batman and Bond?

There are no Walken Bond cards, at least i don't think there are.

Walken is pictured as Max Zorin from "View To A Kill" on a few different base cards in a couple of products. He has no autographs and the only hit I see that might be worth anything is a jacket relic card from the 2014 Bond Archives set. All those Bond material relic cards are pretty average.

I received mine too. Finally back on track (hopefully). Really pleased it's sorted

Mine hasn't shown up yet. Came super-fast last issue. Maybe the mail room rotates the delivery destinations to keep us all in anticipation. Big Grin

Since Don Norton got the latest issue at least two weeks earlier than normal, I took a chance and stopped at a local Barnes & Noble to see if it was on the shelves - nope. It had sold out of the last issue. I'll check again next week.

Not yet. Perhaps they are buried in a snow pile. Big Grin

I stopped at a B&N on Wednesday and saw several copies of this issue on the Beckett area of a magazine shelf. It was Feb 9 which might be the earliest in the month I've seen NSU in a long time. I got the previous issue just after Christmas. If the next few issues come out that fast, maybe we'll get 7 issues this year.

It's always interesting to read the news and see the final auction prices for cards unmentioned on Card Talk. I liked the preview article. I'm glad Ultraman Series One did well enough for RRParks to do a Series 2. We watched the show locally on "Captain Cosmic" back in the late 70's.

I didn't know Lindsey Greyling by name but recognized her Zorro art in the artist interview. I really like her portrait work.
