That is why I don't care about buying autograph cards just because they are artificially short printed in a set. A signer that is extremely limited today might be a common tomorrow.


Slightly OT, but I agree.

I won two GoT autos recently, Jorah & Podrick Payne, with bids higher than I usually go.

I should have realised the latter is signing for the second time in the upcoming release and maybe held off on my higher bid.

Jorah on the other hand has signed for several GoT sets and his value remains high. So was happy with that one Smile

Just out of curiosty, what does OT stand for?

I didn't mean to imply that an EL autograph card is not worth buying or that it would have to go down in value because the autograph came out as a common later on. I am first and foremost autograph collector, so it is the signature that matters to me more than the card. That's why I would rather wait for a more common card that is cheaper, since as long as the signatures are certified, they are all just as good to me.

I didn't buy the Chaplin in the last series, but I might pick her up this year if it is not short printed.

Super nice Buffy cards Juelle Lou! I'm hoping to get the bordered auto one of these days (maybe).

I got the full-bleed Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy Summers autograph card in the mail today and she is gorgeous and definitely in my top 10 favorite autographed cards in my collection. I may chase the bordered one down one of these days but I am happy to have at least one SMG auto in my collection.

Back in 2008, just after starting in this hobby, I found out about Inkworks' Buffy cards and I've been slowly trying to collect all those autos and promos.
Seven years later I still haven't finished, but to have the Sarah Michelle Gellar autograph feels like the icing on my almost finished cake Smile Clap


Congratulations on adding these to your collection Juelle Lou - bet you were thrilled to bits. I like that your full bleed (my favourite of the 2 styles) has a nice centred signature.

To say I was happy to have these in my collection is the understatement of the century. They are definitely my favourite cards I own now Smile
I've never been so anxious to receive cards in the mail, it was ridiculous. I think I checked the tracking for these at least twice a day, which made it feel like they took twice as long to get here. Twak

Yes I was quite pleased about the FB being centered, not that I had a choice in the matter, as it was just luck that who I bought them off, chose them for me.

I noticed in alot of the listings, she does that long stroke with the "M" which I think is what makes it more uncentered.
So I'm glad to have one of each "style" so to speak.

Not a card, but I finally got an unopened box of BUFFY SEASON 1, for less than half what it would have cost a few years ago, but still more than I would have paid upon it's initial release. Hindsight, however, is useless as usual. Anyway, I do believe this completes my Buffy set of unopened boxes:

I agree with Bone. The RDJ Iron Man autos are my Non-Sports Holy Grail..For a set, I would like to get some of the 1940 Superman cards...

While I wouldn't exactly call these Holy Grails, I just picked up the three Season 2 incentive autograph cards from Game of Thrones, Weiss, Benioff and writer Martin.

It's not that these were especially hard to find if you wanted them, but prices were too high for what I thought they were worth, so I never figured I would bother with them. Well I waited and I got a good price, so quite happy.

I'm surprised there has not been more posting to this thread lately. I am seeing a lot of good bargains on autograph cards that were in the higher ranges and have dropped off as much as 25 - 30 percent. Maybe it's just what I'm looking at, but some of your holy grails should be getting soft.
