I can check Pierce Brosnan off my list, I pulled his autograph card from a box of James Bond Autographs and Relics 2014.

After years of wanting a card from him I was ecstatic at the chance to buy my Brosnan card (Mission Logs) so I imagine it was a thrill to pull his card from a couple of boxes!

This is one of two Buffy cards that I had never owned before (the other is the stake card). Happy to have it in my collection now.



And another hard to find Buffy costume card.

Very nice Chuck, congrats on the editions to your collection.
With the PW12, were you after specific colours for Vi's hat? as I remember that there have been a few different ones for sale over the years. And the PW4 is a really nice variation, I like all the colour in that one.

Wasn't looking for specific colors on it...it's so rare as it is trying to get specific colors could take a lifetime...that's not to say I wouldn't pick up another if I found one with different colors.

I remember a couple of years ago on the bay, there was a pink/orange and yellow variation that was relisted heaps of times before it sold, I wish I could have grabbed that one but it was out of my price range.

I just added a Jeri Ryan from the Star Trek Aliens to my Holy Grail list. Never thought I would pull one, especially from only one box. Metal

3 out of 6 of my Bond "Holy Grail" cards:



I've got my fingers crossed for another Lazenby full-bleed (with a photo I like!) and I reckon Timothy Dalton will happen one day, which I'd love on a Licence To Kill card. As for Connery... one can only hope.

Would love to see a pic of the Ford auto - what a pull! Didn't realise they were thick cards.

This is off the web, but mine is the same. For some reason could only post an internet link, and not my own photo.

Auto was stickered, but inset inside a window in the card.

Great Bond autos and that Harrison Ford card was a miracle to pull, you lucky guys!

BTW - I have a great storage facility here. Just send me those cards for safe keeping. I may even pay the postage.

Love the Ford Indy auto! It's also pretty cool that Harrison Ford's signature could also pass for "Henry Jones" which is, of course, the character's actual name.

Ford is my Holy Grail as far as cards go. Have a few signed Official Pix photos of his, but that Heritage card... *drool*

I received my first non-sports redemption card from the 2014-2015 The Chronicals of the Three Stooges. It's a Joe Besser sktch card by Elisabetta Stoinich card #40 of 50. The card front feels like felt. Very cool.

I only received 1 redemption sports card before I switched to vintage sports cards. I have no clue who or what card it was.

In case you're curious, the Chronicles of The Three Stooges redemption cards are genuine etchings -- produced much the same way as Rembrandt produced his etched works about 400 years ago and W. Hollar produced the Hans Hoblein Dance of Death series also about 400 years ago. For the Three Stooges etchings the original pre-painted line drawings of Stoinich were taken and transferred to intaglio plates... and then I individually hand inked, wiped and ran through a traditional 'o' roller Sturges intaglio press each etching card. If you take a magnifying lens and look at the linework you'll see it is 'raised' -- that's the hallmark of an etching print. The paper I used is Arches' archival heavyweight stock (spared no expense on these chase cards! Each one is a fine art print in miniature). If you like the look and feel check out my homage to W. Hollar Hans Holbein ACEO set -- the entire Hans Holbein Dance of Death wood engraving series of the 1500s (perhaps the 'first' non sport trading card series? Debatable?) with the elusive Italian Holbein-attributable image ('coyote ugly' female grim reaper version) each done in etching methods translating the wood engravings to intaglios... and to the best of my knowledge the only fully etched non sport trading card set ever published.
