Thanks for reminding me of my utter stupidity... when this season was in stores, I went to my card guy and he had pulled a Cordy auto. Was going to sell it to me for $8-- yes, thats right, $8. Being young(er) Smile at the time, my father was with me and is the type of person who doesn't consider anyones autograph worth anything (his favorite line is "Well, will they pay for YOUR autograph..." lol). So, needless to say I didn't/couldn't buy it and it was gone the next time I went by myself. [I was spoiled ("School is your job"- so I didn't get a paying job until college... ), so I would have been buying it with Dad's money anyway-- no way I could have bought it right in front of him... Roll Eyes]

So yes, missed out on a Cordy auto for $8. Twak Don't I wish I could turn back time...!

Mine was the Gillian Anderson X-Files 6/7 auto card, and I pulled it from a cheap box. Now, it is one of the Harry Potter Emma Watson Hermione autos, but I also really want the Jolene Blalock Stargate auto card. When Ben Browder signs for Stargate, it will be that card, and I'm already saving up for it (I expect it to be at least $150).

Intresting that most peoples wanted cards are autographs or promos.

So much for sketches and costume cards.

Martineck sketches.......... more Martineck sketches Big Grin

I still need an Ovion, Cylon Commander (which was only in color), and two vipers... Of the three, I may be able to eventually get an Ovion.

I personally broke a case & a half + an archive box and still had to buy most of the Martineck sketches I have.

I also want the Farscape A1/Browder or the DA1/Browder & Black, but as Jason00 mentioned, he'll probably sign for Stargate - want THAT more Big Grin

And more of the Xena Season 2 autos Smile and Martineck Robots sketches... I could go on & on....

The top cards i need to complete masters would be the
Star Trek: The Animated series A2 Leonard Nimoy (Spock)
and
Star Trek Insurrection Gold card G1 Picard, and Autos A7 & A11

My dream would be to get an Archive box of the Art & images of Star Trek with ALL 29 Sketches Drool.
Will there be Archives of A&I of ST?

From recent sets, I'd have to go with a Pablo Marcos sketch of Belit from Conan Art of the Hyborian Age.

In terms of "Holy Grail", that seems to indicate difficult to find rather than just something that is difficult to afford. Mine WAS the numbered Goldeneye promo from Inkworks that announced the name change from Grafitti to Inkworks, but I found one of those a couple weeks ago. Clap

Perhaps the Gold Starbug card and/or the dealer card from Red Dwarf (Futera). Of course, there has been a dealer card listed on "that site" at GBP 500 for over a year... Hmmm... $900+.... seems like I could complete my Alias 1 Master Set for that....(A1 and PW3)

Two more Smile
Xena Topps Season 2 Melinda Clarke auto (that's a fantasy!)
And the Van Helsing Mosterpiece Dracula's Bride gold dress (why oh why is the only card with the brides a UK case incentive?? Mad )

My Holy Grail is most definitely either (or both!) of the Carrie Fisher autos from SW: Evolution & SW: Heritage sets. Hopefully the day will come when one of those are in my collection.

Mine are actually promos. I am after the Superman platinum SW1 Walmart (impossible to find) and the DC/Marvel Mirage promo (see occasionally but can't justify $100+).

Originally mine was the Gillian Anderson from X-Files 6/7 but £200-£300 was just a tad too much for my liking so it was happily replaced by the G. Anderson from Connections that I pack pulled Smile
And my second Grail Card (which also have) is the Goldeneye Numbererd promo which was found for a good price but took alot of waiting.

The only other cards I desperately would want, unfortunately don't exist yet. So I'll cross my fingers and hope Rittenhouse make us Pierce Brosnan and Famke Janssen Autos for Bond.

There are two cards I'd love to obtain, both are sketches:

1 - Topps hulk sketch (any artist) - I've opened around 20 boxes with no luck.

2 - Pacific Garfield 2004 sketch - Given that there are only 10 and I'm not rich or lucky, I don't think I'll ever get one.

There were 2 that just ended on ebay on the 12th, one Czop and the other Don Perlin. The Perlin didn't sell. Eek
