It was listed for a long time, so I was surprised to see it sell -- in Terapeak it seems someone managed to buy one for $120 BIN last month -- which was a STEAL compared to recent sales.

Those sold so cheap for a long time. $999 is astonishing!

I think a bigger factor is that his official Darth Vader auto cards have become increasingly difficult to find over the last couple of years. And when they do occasionally come up, at increasingly silly prices that make the Conan card look much more sensible.

True, but they always were more sensible, and yet the best card/best role mentality prevailed and kept his Conan card cheap for a very long time. He also has signatures in Americana without benefit of any screen character and they weren't hard to find. Now the demand for his autograph has gone up for all and it looks like even the Americana cards are asking over $300.

It is the combination of his Vader cards going up and also that he's headed for 92. Now that Harrison Ford turned 80, expect to see the prices of his autograph cards start to leap up again too. Because of the increased supply, he did take a minor dip, but I predict that Ford's best autograph cards are going to be breaking records soon.

It's just the way human nature works. Tell someone that something may stop being made and they suddenly have to have it, even if they never wanted it before. Big Grin

Part of the reason his cards are going up is that Vader appeared in several episodes of the recent Obi Wan Kenobi show. Fresh content. James Earl Jones did the voice and he sounded great - sounded better than when he did some retakes for the first trilogy special editions in the 90's.

I wanted to like the Kenobi show but it was terrible. If you count that as part of the whole story, it takes all the drama out of what was built between the Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.

Like or hate it Star Wars is solidified into the culture. It is multi generational in a very strong way. We are losing the first generation cast and a few of them don't sign any more. I can only see related licensed autograph items going up.

Even for those who signed on multiple sets all of them are very limited by comparison to standard Star Wars merchandising numbers.

That is an oddity. I am seen it inching up to 125 to 150 over the last few years but that is quite a jump.

If my Terapeak search is accurate there have only been 2 sold in the last year -- one for a $50 BIN in January and one last October for $185.

Brendan Fraser is picking up all the festival awards for "The Whale" right now. He's had a rough time since his Mummy days and he's career was all but washed up. Just the kind of comeback story the Academy Awards' voters like. His Mummy and Looney Tunes cards look to be going up. If he does take the Best Actor Oscar his autograph cards should really peak. There is a way to go till the year ends, but a nomination looks like a lock.

I have Fraser's "Looney Toons" auto card, but the one from the Mummy is clearly more desirable.

I noticed a couple of Danny Elfman autograph cards from Inkworks "Sleepy Hollow" sold for over $300 each over the past 5 weeks or so.

Not quite the value of a Star Wars 30th John Williams card where composers are concerned (and there are two more Elfmans now listed at less than $300), but the card does seem to be trending in a positive direction.

I would say an Elfman autograph card is a good card to pick up. It was around a S40-50 card in the late 2000's, but more recently, he's been getting discovered by a whole new generation. My 19-year old nephew was excited about going to his most recent concert. He went with my brother and sister-in-law who have been big fans for decades.

To my surprise Elfman's cards are over $300 now -- as recently as March they were available at $100.

He had a huge performance at a festival - Burning Man? But his name was in the spotlight for a little while, surely renewing interest.

I heard Elfman was just in my area about a week and a half ago. A local symphony orchestra played all the scores he did for various Tim Burton movies.

It was Coachella, which is a big two week summer music festival in the desert in Southern California. I watched his performance on YouTube and he still brings it. (In addition to his other talents, he's a world class xylophone player.) He'd retired from performing live music decades ago due to hearing loss, but apparently the roar of the live crowd has finally coaxed him back to it, and he indicated during the show plans to not only release new (non-orchestral) music, but also to continue with his return to the stage. Were he to reform Oingo Boingo, his band, I have no doubt they could sell out our largest venues, certainly locally.

The V Mars season 2 APW4 sold at auction 22 Sept US $38 with 17 bidders
On the UK auction site that is selling the Inkworks cardsThis card has at least doubled in value on this site
The seller must have every card produced for this set as they have been dribbling these APW cards for the last 4 or 5 years with the AWP4 Charisma Carpenter card being the most popular the auction price being $13 to $16 for the last few years
I won this set a long time ago for I think just over $30 for the 4 cards. Funnily the same seller is selling not auctioning the Redemption cards for this set at very high prices.

Yeah, I am starting to hear more and more people looking for costume and piece works cards.

Might be a good time to start dumping mine as I have no use for em.
