So to the surprise of no one, RA has just added the Game of Thrones The Iron Anniversary set coming in Spring 2021.

It's Series One by the way, so no suspense about what's coming next. Big Grin

Since it doesn't look like the COVID situation is going away very fast in the next few months, I may find myself buying as many boxes of these as the 2020 Season 8 and Complete. Wink

In addition to Clarke listed as an Inscription autograph, she also has an Autograph/Relic/Quote card and a Costume Relic/Quote card. She has gotten pretty cooperative all of a sudden. Big Grin

I'm not sure how RA is defining these words. We know the Inscription is handwritten, but the Quote reference may be part of the card. Costume Relic also seems to have a different meaning than just Relic, which used to include costume swatches.

While I have pulled sketches out of the later GoT products, it was one scenic and two dragons. I would really like one of those character sketches. As always the highlights look good, but I would like to not get a common signer as the second signer in every box.

I see the date has been pushed back a bit to June 2nd, which is fine, but I really hope that it doesn't mean a November or December drop for Iron Anniversary Series 2. That would be lousy holiday timing, better to hold off till 2022, but I wouldn't be surprised if they cram them both into 2021 anyway.

Just realized SRP is posted at $169.99. That is going to be a tough price for an average box with average hits. Perhaps RA thinks the mere presence of Clarke is worth it. Big Grin

Not if you don't pull one. Wink

A lot depends on how many she signed also.

Yeah, frankly I was surprised at the price. I was able to bust about a case and half of boxes last year between the Season Eight and Complete, plus buying autograph singles. That was mainly because I wasn't really buying much of any other titles and the cost wasn't bad.

I can't see going in for more than two boxes each series here before going the singles route. The autograph prices have been coming down for most of the repeat signers as the supply goes up. Logic should say that the box prices should come down or at least a third autograph should be put in the box. But no, a few Clarke signatures are in there, so let's play to the speculators who may never have bought in before. Big Grin

Wait and see if there isn't a big dump of Series 1 hits not long after release. The speculators will want to get rid of the commons and the collectors who have stayed away from breaking will be happy to get them. Sad to talk this way 3 months before the product even arrives. Frown

This is the first time I'm not buying any boxes. Far too expensive box price for basically the same diluted content as the ordinary season boxes which were incredibly diluted tosh for S7 and S8. Nothing excites me here. Being lucky enough to have both Emilia Clarke autograph cards from S1 and S2, means I don't care too much about getting another of hers. I have multiples of everyone else too.

I'm very happy with my season sets and bits and bobs of the Complete, VS and Inflexions. I don't need to dent my wallet further. I might pick up a couple of singles, but I'm not going to buy at stupid prices.

There's nothing particularly premium about this set except for the price tag. An autograph in each pack would be better. But I clearly live in dreamland if that's ever going to happen again. Big Grin The VS set was still the best value at a premium price. Sadly not repeated.

The inflated price tag may be due to how much they had to pay Emilia to agree to sign again. That's assuming they paid her much more than before and assuming she signed in any kind of quantity.

So Emilia Clarke is apparently doing a private signing for a place called Twin Cities Comics and they are accepting pre-sale orders on photos and inscriptions. I mention this not to give publicity, but to say that her varying rate seems to range between $250 - $285 for the signature and choice of photo. A limited GoT card adds its own value of course.

So she is signing, which was only going to be a matter of time, although she seems to have a problem with Star Wars material. Maybe she didn't like Solo. Big Grin

Saw them listed as 10 boxes per case. 8 packs per box. 6 cards per pack. Being the odd breakdown and mid-level price hard to guess the case run but I think it will be pretty high. There were 800 cases of Inflexions between regular and international. Think this will be in the same ballpark.

Anyone good at math? How many boxes to make a base set when you figure in the various hits, inserts, parallels and whatever else?

Hard to say without odds yet. My guess is three base sets with most of a fourth in a case so if collation is good 3 boxes should get you a set.

That's all very interesting, but what about the only thing that matters... new signers on full bleed cards Big Grin

I expect that they will dig up some couple of new signers in some design. There must be a few more people that were lurking in the shadows. Anybody could have been in that "Longest Night" episode and you wouldn't know it. I could have been attacking the walls, third wight from the left. Big Grin

I imagine that if some new signer is any sort of a recognizable name he/she will be added to the front page ad when it's confirmed. If not, it will just stay with the repeat signers that are already there.

I find it amusing that concerns are being raised on a certain other forum that Iron Anniversary autograph cards may not grade as well as they should because RA cards have a tendency for edge chipping. Another sign that speculators are driving prices up not for the cards, but for the slab label grade.

Hey Raven,

That is funny, because if you look just two posts above yours, all Ravenheart wants are new signers on full bleed cards. What some people on Blowout want are cards "officially" declared to be perfect. Obviously, we all expect cards with a minimum of wear right out of the pack but we're not even going to notice some level of edge chipping. Are they opening packs with gloves, magnifiers, and foam-tipped tweezers? It might take an hour just to get through one of those 7-8 pack boxes out there now.

It's not just a grading thing. I've noticed that a few collectors in other hobbies will pass on even something quite rare if it's in less than mint condition. I have heard people say in these words, "I'm waiting for a perfect one." If I waited for only a perfect one of anything, I'd have maybe 3 or 4 collectibles total instead of boxes of stuff.

I am just hoping for base cards that are in good condition. Last few releases in particular the base cards have been really rough.
