The new Blue autograph looks VERY smart. Thumb Up I think I like it better than the bordered versions now. Cool

I don't really mind it so long as the signer is important enough to the set that he/she can carry the higher price that should result from VL and XL versions. It's only when the signer truly is a common character that I have to wonder why RA would bother with a shorter print run for someone that is hardly known.

For example, with Star Trek TNG: Heroes and Villians, why are Jerry Hardin, James Horan, Robin Gammell and Scott MacDonald all XL? I don't even know what parts they played.

For Game of Thrones Season Two, why make Weiss and Benioff the 3 case incentive when as non-actors their names are largely unknown?

I don't mind paying more for a short printed card so long as it is someone I would want to buy anyway. But it always irks me to have to pay higher prices for common signers just because they signed fewer cards in a particular product.

When that happens I generally just leave those autograph cards as holes in my collection until such time as I find them at a price that I think they merit. If the prices never hit my "value" they can stay a hole in my collection as far as I'm concerned. Wink

The Benioff/Weiss as a 3 case incentive would've been better as a dual autograph, for sure, and the limited edition nature of it would've been better justified in that way.

Just got word my order has shipped (box & binder) woo excited much Big Grin

Wonder if I can repeat my lucky box streak? Tudors 1,2,3 single box pulled a sketch and GoT Season 2 single box Lady Stark auto+ variant relic I haven't seen often (Joffrey Beige).

I did think about chasing the gold parallel for my base set but will settle for the normal parallel I think Smile

I see Rittenhouse have all pictures of the cards up on their site checklist, now. All except the sketch cards, anyway. I assume the parallel cards will be either silver or gold foil stamped depending on which set they are, too.
I see they've put John 'Sam' Bradley up twice...he's under David 'Walder Frey' Bradley too. Big Grin Easy mistake to make on names...definitely not on appearance. Big Grin

Apart from the R1 and R2 costume/relic cards there appears to be another one numbered to 56!

Its R1A. It appears to be part of the leather strap as opposed to the cloth. Pulled from the Archive Box, so assuming its only found in the archive box with it being limited to 56!

Liking the pictures so far... a bit lol at some of the early prices on eBay!

The gold parallel base are lovely but still think it would be too hard and expensive to complete a set. Aiming for a gold relationship set though.

Oona Chaplin is the only signer i've seen so far with black & blue ink signatures.

The relics seem to be mixed fabric as with the previous banners which is cool.

The case topper is a huge improvement on the S2 issue.

Really excited for my box to arrive now!

I'd like most of the big name autos (naturally!), and two characters are firm favourites so will buy again, only a couple other new signers which should be affordable so this set for me is mainly going to be the chase inserts and parallel base, which I am fine with Smile

I was able to get the bordered Ygritte and Brienne I wanted from this new series for $43 just now, and had I got those 2 autographs out a box, I'd have been very happy indeed. This way, I even have $20 left over.

I'm definitely going to pick up a few boxes to try for a sketch and the XL Talisa autograph, but with so many repeat signers, and me being a guy who just wants one signed card from each character (there are a few exceptions), singles are definitely the way to go this time around.

I bought my first (and probably ever) case of this, and it should arrive Friday. I leave work at 5, have to mow the lawn Frown, and should be cracking it open at about 8pm. Can't wait!

Wow! Superb work, Mr. Cover!
The final march of Robb Stark is horrific and beautiful all at once.

Looks like everyone did a beyond superb job on the sketches. Truly mini masterpieces. Too bad they're all going to be out of my price range.

Gorgeous sketches Mr. Cover and Mr.Deb. The 3 eyed raven is always creepy to me but I like it. I would be thrilled to have any of them in my collection should the be in any of my boxes.

I just wanted to say that this is a beautiful set. Lets not dwell on the autos and sketch cards all the time. The Relationships cards are perfect. Just beautiful! The quotables still look great, with that black velvet look trim on the side. I just love cards with a little border design. I would like to see more of the base cards with some boarder pop.. Anyway, great job on this set. Metal
