So much for anyone thinking that one was a good investment.


Don't forget Bryan Singer, the director, was recently fired from Bohemian Rhapsody for his supposed involvement in a child sex trafficking ring in the 1990s with Gary Goddard and Roland Emmerich, a story that refuses to go away after 20 years. Singer's career might finally be over. He was replaced on the Red Sonja film most recently. No studio wants to deal with that in the #metoo era.

No, there isn't any messaging system on here, and I'm also not selling any cards at the moment.

Unfortunately -- I don't have any cards for sale, also buying/selling isn't allowed on Card Talk so be careful before the card police turn you in.

Those guys are some kind of eXtreme sport racers. If the poster is inquiring, I don't know that there are any cards, but better to look on sports card forums. They wouldn't get any mention here.

So what do think the current flap does to the demand/price of the Markle Fringe autograph card?

Because everything started in such a good place, I can only think that it hurts it. On the other hand all the British tabloids and the writers of The Crown are probably besides themselves. Big Grin

Now there's a title for a card set that could outdo Downton Abbey, The Crown, but it won't happen.

First of all, wasn't the value going to go down anyway with Markle easing into life as a royal? She and her husband are making a splash now and probably staying in the news as a controversial couple. What if they start their own company and it becomes successful? What if she gets back into acting again and does a funny cameo on a TV show and/or appears in some well-regarded indie project? They'll probably continue doing things for charity. As long as people are curious about what they're doing and what they're doing next, I think the value of the card will at least hold.

The card was going to drop off the peak value after of the wedding. I think everyone expected that, but they also expected the couple to remain popular with the British people. Americans don't have the same feelings toward Royalty because its not in our history and we are not footing the bill for them either. We have are own problems with our leaders. Big Grin

So we're like, its no big deal, let them do what they want. Well I think it is a big deal in the UK and I think it has to negatively effect her card's value if she loses fans in what was supposed to be her new home's market. And that's just keeping it simple when it's a complicated issue for many reasons.

A long time ago Grace Kelly wanted to be a princess too. By all accounts it was a poor choice for her, but she was stuck with it. It's a different time, but history still has a habit of repeating itself.

Harry and Megan have now agreed to drop the His and Her Royal Highness titles and go their own way, at least according to today's news. They will remain a headline for a little while and then no one will care unless something else happens.

If she's not a HRH, that Fringe autograph card is looking more like the common signer it was at the start than the big hit it became. Expect to see a few of them reappear on eBay shortly, there are 3 up now, lowest is $450.

I think it will most likely settle but seeing it go back to the pre Harry days is something I don't see. Ok, they are causing a stir with the Royal Family, all that means is a world of future potential. It's not like they are no longer Duke and Duchess and he is still Prince Harry. It's not like she has to go work at a 7-11 and he gets to do road work in an orange safety vest.

They'll rebrand themselves and however that works out will play on the value of the card. But the days of getting it for $20 are gone.

Oh it's not going to go back to a common card by any means and if by rebrand you mean going the Kardashian route, I think you're right.

According to reports, which of course may not come to pass, she is hawking for voice over work with Disney and is looking into a fashion line. Nobody's saying what he is going to do, but there must be a Board of Directors somewhere that needs his special expertise.

Failing that there is always reality TV or a remake of Green Acres. Big Grin

Sorry, I find this particular Crown twist and turn hysterical and I do hope the former Royal Highnesses get whatever they deserve.

Given that I don't really give the royal family much thought I'm still baffled her card went all crazy...guess it was the potential Diana effect.

As I understand it, what they are doing basically takes them off the payroll of public funds. Maybe they can be the new mold of Royal family who diverts that money to those who are more in need of it. Wink

Yeah, that's their motive. Big Grin

They're going to have to find a secure place to live. I would think they could make money by making a deal with one of those home renovation shows and letting it help out with the house-hunting and remodeling. The show would need a surprise ending and that would be that the house once done would be auctioned off for a charity.

They should write a book about their transition to private life. People in the US and the UK would buy it.

Both flew into Miami on private jet to be the key note speakers at the JPMorgan Alternative Investment Summit in South Beach. For those unfamiliar, South Beach is like the gold coast in Florida, nothing but wealth.

Harry spoke about his mother, mental health and how he wants to protect his family. Doesn't say what Meghan talked about, but they are negotiating for their first American live news interview. Don't know what that has to do with investments, alternative or traditional. Wink

Yes Jess, I'm sure there will be a book and a book tour and maybe even a movie on the book, where they can play themselves. Did anyone expect that they would really stay in Canada? Big Grin

Hey Raven,

If they do a book and a movie and they end up moving to northern Florida, the title could be "The Panama City Royals." If they go to South Florida, it could be "The Duke and Duchess of Jupiter."

Well it won't be "Sussex Royals" because the Palace just pulled the plug on their copyrighted name. Seems they aren't going to be allowed to put Royal in anything since they walked away. That foundation or charity that they are setting up will have to be called something else too.

Why does everyone need their own charity to be charitable? It's a rhetorical question. Big Grin
