So GoT Iron Anniversary Series Two just went up on RA's website with a November 17th release date. Mostly photos of more inscription autograph cards, but there is a Gold version for Clarke and an inscription from Christie, who has not turned up since her first FB and B cards. Otherwise seems to be much the same as Series One. Can't spot any new signers.

I'm still waiting to see if they got any of the really big missing dual autograph cards that could be combos of Clarke/Harington, Clarke/Dinklage and Clarke/Headey.

Inscriptions have to be dried up with this one by now, but who knows?

Much as I would like there to be new signers to collect, in sets like this I'd really rather there weren't any.

Availability dries up very quickly because interest in the set is so low, so low numbers of the new signers that are around attract an unreasonable premium. Picking them up has become a very frustrating exercise, which it didn't used to be.

That's very true and it's because there is no way for anyone, regardless of how much you spend, to keep up with the GoT autograph list. I'm not even sure someone can complete the signers on a specific card format, but maybe. Otherwise the best you can do, if you have a mind to say you have completed anything at all, is go for one signed card of every signer in any design.

That's what I do and I think a couple of other GoT collectors here are doing. So everybody wants the new signer for awhile until more designs come out on that signer in the next release. Most new signers are no better than commons really, so it hurts to pay high prices. But if you wait, they will probably drop lower, unless they only have one or two designs.

The new 2021 Non-Sport Almanac shows significant increases in almost all GoT autograph cards released more than a couple of years back across the board. As of right now I know the tally is 860 cards and by my loose count there are 1219 different inscriptions. The 1219 is probably not exact, but close enough. Iron 2 may add another 100 cards and a couple of hundred more inscriptions.

There are a few earlier signers and brand new signers who still have only appeared in a couple of designs and the 2 producers and author only did one card. I would think at some point those more limited signers and the 3 incentives would also show more than current demand.

I think the only format it's going to be possible to fully complete is the black bordered one. Maybe no one's missing from that?

Full bleed is close... but not complete because of those early case incentives. And is still missing a couple of others as well - although those others are available on full bleed duals.

I'd love to get that Emilia Clarke card. The gold signatures are the only GOT cards that I collect (+ George R.R. Martin's card). Among the main cast, I think Emilia Clarke, Richard Madden, and Gwendoline Christie are the only ones who haven't signed the black & gold version.

Beckett article confirms at least 3 new signers:
Harry Grasby/Ned Umber
Andy Beckwith/Rorge
David Verrey/High Septon

Production seems to be as high as Series One. I don't know how much of Series One is still out there in bulk, but I was offered a couple at $125 the other day. I passed because I had picked up my singles already and my previous boxes had been generally disappointing.

I maintain the Mark Metcalf has been hired to ghost sign for Emilia Clarke. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! Wink

Patrick Malahide/Balon Greyjoy is new, you can see his inscription card on RA’s site.

Not counting Clarke, of the repeat signers only Christie is going to get much demand because she has been more limited with just a FB and B so far. The new signers thus far are nothing to crow about.

Unfortunately most GoT card collectors of any few years are just yawning at these autograph checklists now. A new signature card from one of the main actors is always good, but the excessive Iron box prices are really factoring in cards that aren't being pulled. Chasing even the big signatures from people that you already have becomes less special and not worth the risk factor. Also all these mixing it up attempts at quotes, cuts, inscriptions, relics, relic/quotes and cut/quotes can't make the autographs any different. For common signers, a common inscription won't even bring a decent premium.

The only thing I would like to pull, besides a Clarke Big Grin, is a character sketch. I pulled two dragon sketches from InfleXions and a Tent scene from Season 8, but never one with an actor likeness. I probably wouldn't be moved to buy one at the price, so pack pulled would be my only chance.

Was thinking the same thing about Star Wars.

It is nice to see that some have stopped, Dinklage, Maisie, Iain. I really wanted to jump on the first series but when I saw how many divisions and subsets the product had I just couldn't do it.

Hopefully Christie doesn't bring her Star Wars sticker signature style back to on-card land.

I have her beautiful season II card....I'm good. Smile

Yeah, but as watered down as GoT has become with its wealth of repeat signers, I can't help but feel that there is at least one more product (or two if this splitting keeps up) because no Clarke dual cards have dropped yet.

Now normally items signed by multiple people have less demand than a single signed item and don't actually get double the price. That's because people may only be interested in the bigger signer and don't want to pay a higher price for someone else they don't need.

Only these duals would be an exception if they could be gotten by RA because GoT had some natural pairings, as already made, and the character of Daenerys has natural pairings with Jon Snow, Tyrion, Cersei, Jorah, Drogo and even her brother Viserys. Only Lloyd and maybe Glen might be a negative pull on the price, but Harington, Dinklage, Headey and Momoa would make for huge value.

I still feel that RA is not going to pass up putting out those combos, even if they have to resort to cuts. Any supply in the regular on-card format would carry the release.
