Holy Grail Card(s)
I would like to assemble a set of one of each autograph from the BIG 7 original Star Trek cast members from the Skybox TOS season sets. So far I have 2 of the 7 and still need:

Shatner
Kelley
Doohan
Takei
Koenig

Where they signed for more than one series, one from any series will do.

I'll keep dreaming. :-)

Yep! Mad

I would have preferred if it had been a triple costume card. Drool

How many of those were made do you have any idea?


I have no idea! I know it was a limited release anyway, so i guess however many UK cases there were- that's how many.
I've seen two on eBay, and they have been taken off my watchlist when they reached £30.

I've seen three and all by the same Uk seller. I wonder if they were the only case buyer! Big Grin

My Holy Grail Card would be a Charisma Carpenter full-signature card from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 2. I don't own one but hope to save enough money and get lucky to find one someday.

Me too!
However I decided to leave my completest tendancies behind and not bother. If I could oneday get 1 auto of every character that signed across all X-Files sets I would call that complete.
As for multiples signers, they can be very annoying especially when they're relatively common. However, G. Anderson cards are a diffenent story altogether; very rare, very pricy!
So if you would care for my advice xSaBx, be happy with the one you were lucky enough to pull, besides I (personally) think its the better lloking of the 3.

Maybe I'm biased but who cares! Wink

Sdaly I do not have that card and, at that price, never will.

Did all the First Contact Data cards come in that cool case? I had not seen that before.

My Grailcards are the DA1 Ben Browder / Claudia Black autograph from Farscape through the Wormhole (I got it for less than half the price listed in NSU), the Admiral Ackbar 3D card DIII/0 from RotJ Widevision (I spent years tracking that one down, nobody had it at that time, and after I finally got it the price hit rock bottom and I could get it everywhere... quite frustrating), the Andreas Katsulas / G'Kar Autograph A5 from B5 season 4 and Katee Sackhoff / Starbuck from Premiere BSG.
The latter two I got in my own boxes, which makes me love them even more...

Now, I wish I could find a Jolene Blalock / T'Pol autograph for a reasonable price, and I would love to complete my Premiere BSG auto-set someday (only 11 more to go – no dual autograph for me this time...

Hopefully the mysterious JAG-set will feature autos from David James Elliott and Catherine Bell and I hope for a Josh Holloway, Matthew Fox or Evangeline Lilly auto in the upcoming Lost box.

And I can dream about the Carrie Fisher or Mark Hamill autographs from SW Evolution or Heritage... sigh...

I got one of my HG cards today - whilst in Southend with CSI Dave and xSaBx (the former was looking for the latest NSU) I got the issue of Wizard with the LOTR: TTT P3 promo!
Now all I need is the LOTR: ROTR P2...
Au Res.,
Paul

Mine would be the Blue Auto Redemption from Star Wars Galaxy series 1. It is the last card I need for the complete Galaxy master set including all promo cards and bend ems.

If anyone has one they want to trade drop me a line pretty please with sugar on it. Clap

Hey, I'm quoting myself! I picked one of these up pretty cheap after cashing in a jug of change at the bank, so my newest Holy Grail is the Star Trek Nemesis Bryan Singer autograph. The cheapest I've seen it is $150, so I've got some saving to do.

Better question is did that trip to the bank involve a mask, a gun and a get away car Big Grin or was that jug reeeeeally big...


Congrats Jason! Big Grin Thumb Up
