So I just received my Aug/Sept NSU replacement today. Thanks to Harris, and anyone else, for sending it.

For those who care, the two promos I got were Outlander P6 and Nosferatu Series Two P1.

Looks like a lot of good stuff in there about Elvis among others, but I went straight to Ryan Cracknell's article about Julian Glover's autograph cards. Glover has been one of those always working supporting actors over a 70 year career. It's pretty remarkable that he has signed cards in ten franchise titles, plus the actual number of cards.

It doesn't say if that is definitely the record, but it would be hard to come up with someone else with more. I know for a time I kept pulling Shane Rimmer in everything, but I think he had many different cards in the same titles. The article also has pictures of ten of Glover's cards, half of which I never saw. So these are the kind of informative and outside the box pieces that I really like to see, because there are a lot of ways to study and collect autograph cards besides focusing only on which ones cost the most.

Hi, I thought I would throw in my own complaint after reading some of the other delivery problems here. I let my subscription lapse after Beckett took over. After reading a few subsequent articles and enjoying them I decided to re-subscribe. I tried a couple of different times and could not get the promo code to work. This past May (12th) success! In 4-6 weeks I would get my first issue. Well, it has been over 10 weeks now. I just now called customer service. The excuse I received was that it was either lost or stolen. Sorry, not buying it. I believe someone just messed up. Thanks for listening.

Ten? I can find eight: Bond, Saint, Avengers, Harry Potter, Indiana Jones, Game of Thrones, Star Wars, and Space 1999. What am I missing?

Shatner has signed in ST (TOS, TAS, Generations), Outer Limits, Twilight Zone, Six Million Dollar Man, Tek World, plus omnibus "franchises" Donruss Americana, Leaf Pop Century, Topps Allen & Ginter and 2001 In the Game Candadiana.

According to the article, also "Blake's 7". "Doctor Who" and "Hammer Horror" for Glover. No card for "Space 1999" is mentioned, so either that's wrong, or you found #11.

Shatner has been around alright, but the article specified "biggest franchise in box office and small screen history" so it's for franchise titles, not franchise product brands. Cards in A&G, Pop Century and Americana wouldn't count, and all his various "Star Trek" series would be considered the same franchise. At least going by the article's rules.

It's a top 10. We'll call that one #11. : )

Hello:
