Did this UK company do anything other than D-Day and that wonderful Sherlock Holmes card set in the early 2000s ?

I recall they had 2 promos for a Sherlock Series 2 that never came out, and they are very hard to find

They did two Hammer sets. Entombed, including six autograph cards and a seventh one at the '99 Memorabilia show, and Behind The Screams, which just had some chase sets, no autos.

I think it was them who did the 9-card 40th Anniversary factory set as well.

You are all correct !

For years I wondered if Sherlock Holmes Series 2 ever came out. NSU used to list it as "just released" on its calendar, but I think this was an error

And like I said, the 2 promos for Series 2 are VERY tough to find, in my experience. I never saw them for sale. I believe that I got them directly from CMA with an order, years ago

Two series, "Premier" in 1997 and "Millennium 2000" (aka "Another Fine Card Set") in 2001.

Back in the day, CMA/RiverWye distributed a catalog with photos & pricing thru the mail. I have one somewhere - its a great little reference book.

Jeff,

There were also some Laurel and Hardy preview sets by the UK Fan Club that I do not believe you list. Please contact me for info !

Good Morning

For those that may have forgotten and as I came across these this morning filed away in the wrong binder I thought I would post scans of the two Hammer Horror Behind the Screams Series Two promo cards.
