I am working on Buffy Seasons 4 & 5 at the moment.

I am missing A20 (Mercedes McNab) & A21 (Marc Blucas) for Season 4, and A24 (Kelly Donovan) for Season 5.

Just to let you know, the binder was never produced (although it was solicited).

Well went to a sorting branch to pick up the item, it was terribly packaged (ie. just a bubble envelope) and for the 30 minute walk home I was sure I once opened I would be having to ask the seller for a refund. That said, I tore it open and alas it was absolutely fine!

After years of waiting I finally got my grubby mits on the "Teri Hatcher Exposed" uncut sheet from Inkworks' Tomorrow Never Dies card set. This one is numbered 279/500, however this version is one from half of the print run that was sold to Dynamic Forces who mounted them and had them signed by artist Joe Jusko (this one being edition 68/250).

So looks like the thick cardboard mount saved the day! However the mount had split at the bottom edge and sides. This might ordinarily bother me but I was not really interested about keeping it in a mount Inkworks did not issue the sheet in. Also it is not possible to see what individual number Inworks gave the sheet because this is hidden by the blue mount. So I had something of a DIY conservation job ahead of me! Big Grin

The sheet was only held in place within the mount by some gum tape at the top edge so I had to hold the top part of the mount back without bending the sheet, then with a scalpel cut the tape from the back part of the mount.
Afterwich the sheet is free from its cardboard prison albeit with a massive piece of heavy duty (very sticky) gum tape attached to the rear of the card sheet (running the length of the top edge and covering about 2 cm in width). I was worried the tape would take the card off with it but it went surprisingly well, there are now afew 'scuffs' where the tape has pulled at the extreme edge but these faults are miniscule (about a millimetre), hardly visible, and present only on the reverse, still what I would call an excellent/near-mint example of one of these sheets. Not bad if I do say so myself. Big Grin

And so the first ever trading card set I collected: Tomorrow Never Dies, is officially done! Clap It only took like 7 years! Roll Eyes Big Grin

I'm concentrating on completing a master set of all my mini-master sets (Buffy, Angel, Supernatural, Firefly, Veronica Mars), if such a thing is possible. I'm missing a few cards from some Buffy releases and I'm going to aim at finishing them before the year is through.

Right now I'm working on Robots the Movie, X-Files Connections, Battlestar Galactica Premiere, Complete Lost in Space, And Battlestar Galactica Colonial Warriors. They're a couple years old, but I need to finish some things out before I take on any more sets! Big Grin

I'm almost done with my Firefly set I picked up the Adam Baldwin and Gina Torres autos at Comic-Con. I picked up 2 very sweet cards for my Wife's Harry Potter collection. I got her the Whomping Willow and the Harry's Wand card numbered 16/28 and both are 25 case incentive cards. She may not be able to make masters out of these sets but I made her a very happy lady with those cards and thats what matters.I only need the Jared Padalecki case incentive costume card to finish my Supernatural season 1 also. I also picked up a Roger Moore 6 case incentive auto for my Bond Collection which has a long way to go but that is a key card and I'm patient.
Good Luck Everyone.
Take Care

I am working on two sets.

Complete James Bond - Need only the RC8 Parahawk Parachute Prop Card

&

Battlestar Galactica (new) - I am not working on so much of a master set, but I am trying to get an autograph from pretty much every big cast member. I still have quite a few to get.

Talk about dedicated - all you guys rock Metal

I could never be that diligent or keep myself focused enough to have a master set.

I'm almost finished with my Supernatural master set.

I'm missing A1, PW-1A, PW2-A, PW7, PW8 and PW12. Luckily the latter 2 aren't too hard to come by, and I may of secured a PW7 and both autographed pieceworks for a good price. Fingers crossed on those because when this set first came I thought it'd cost around £300 tops to finish it, boy was I wrong, lol.

congrats to everyone.
I'm pretty close to finish my Lost Season 1 Set, I just need A5 & A6.

Little thought: It's my idea of a master set. Base + chase cards and the autographs. I don't chase the piecework cards.
