Seeing this post, I became curious and counted up my own Twilight Zone autograph collection, and I also have exactly 115 of them, kind of a coincidence.
Most of the ones I'm missing are from series 3, so with the more common ones of those, I could get up to around 130, but those last 20 or so will be tough. I imagine some of those might be on your list, too.

Do you count the Steve Charendoff autograph card as part of the 150? I think it was a series II case topper.

Current grails: Looking for auto's (cuts I guess...) of Mandy Moore and Keri Russell.


Have we ever tried a seperate thread for the unloved cards in our piles that are worth special mention but currently are in the equivilant of the dog pound? "Agrailable" cards in my pound include one of a kind printing plates (don't collect them), a stack of /20 Pop Century wardrobe cards that I gave up on (including Britney Spears, might also still have /5's of some cards), a R. Owens sketch /10 (don't usually collect sketches), 258 West slightly smudged auto's from Vampire Diaries actors (Nina D. and Ian S.) etc. They aren't really worth selling, but are a pain to try and trade if you don't know what you want or have a small want list. Sometimes it just sucks to think that the rare cards you want are just sitting in a box somewhere waiting for a loving home. Maybe if we listed our "agrailables" some of these things would catch the eye of someone else who would list thiers. Three way trades aren't impossible...

Just thinking there must be a way to get a single available rare card list started for the things that don't usually appear on the 'bay.

I don't know of any posting about "agrailables". I think it should be in another section where we post trades.

Anyway, I would be interested in following that particular thread to see if anything I am looking for are just in another's "box" and getting not even a peek and not showing up on ebay, but at least they are around somewhere!

See, I love Printing plates. I think they are cool. I throw everything onto my trade list that is auto/costume/sketch. If I had a plate to trade I would put it on my trade list. There is a collector for everything!

This is another card that is very hard to find. Her other single auto from season 10 shows up quite often as compared to this one. Happy to finally own it

One of my holy grails is the Quentin Tarantino ALIAS Season 4 auto card WITH the signature of Mr. Tarantino. I could still kick myself over and over for not having ask him to sign the card when I met him earlier this year! Shake Head Twak

Mine would be the two Mirage cards from the 1995 Marvel Masterpieces. Those are all I need to finish that set!

I'm happy to say I've got my 'Holy Grail' card. Nothing can top this for me. Still so impressed Rittenhouse managed to get him at all - never thought it would happen.

Pierce Brosnan? That is a nice autograph!

I guess I can mention one of my holy grails that I am looking for. The last card for my Speed Racer master set, been looking for it since the set came out. I guess you can guess which one it is?Wink

Hi David,

was there a set for the 2008 flop movie "Speed Racer" starring Susan Sarandon, Christina Ricci and John Goodman or do you mean the original comic?

Aside from oddball cards, foreign sets or game cards for the Speed Racer movie, I am not aware of any regular USA trading cards.

I was referring to the set based on the cartoon/comics. The P3 promo is the holy grail for most people who collect this set.

Still looking for that one card.

David

Is that the Kelly from the third season? If so, a great find!

I picked these up today. Not quite Holy Grails, but I've been searching for two of them for a long time. The third one I never knew existed until today:

The Kelley is from the second season. I actually perfer the look of that one better though. It is a screen shot from shore leave. That was one of my favotite epsoides.

Nice pickup on the Trek Bridge bonus card. I also havent seen that on before.

My mirage cards cost £25 each when the set came out. It skinted me for a week!

Interestingly, one of those Mirage cards from 1995 Marvel Masterpieces can still be had for 25 pounds....

...of American pennies, which happens to be about $387 US dollars, pretty close to what the Mirage cards have been selling for recently.

Can you imagine if the 1996 Marvel Masterpieces had a pair of Mirage cards at the same long odds? Those would possibly be $1,000 non sports chase card singles (in a set only 17 years old!).
