Depends on how you judge tough, by supply or by demand.

There are many tough Bond autographs, but if you are simply talking about rarity, it would go to a multi-case incentive or archive box exclusive autograph card.

Not 100% sure, but the John Rhys-Davies archive box exclusive of 2009 might have the smallest run of 34 cards. The Daniel Craig 9-case incentive of 2016 is down for 61 cards. The dual 9-case incentive of Craig and Dench is down for 88 cards. I would really like that one.

Run numbers on several other incentives still don't seem to have been disclosed. Honor Blackman's autograph as an archive box exclusive is one of those.

Now Famke Janssen has great demand and her WA27 Goldeneye 6-case incentive comes in at 84 cards. All her autographs are high, but I would rate that one the best.

Barbara Bach has only one card signed long ago. If that stands, and given her role in TSWLM, that card will always be snapped up as soon as it appears regardless of the number signed. Rosamund Pike has A5 in DAD and I can't remember the last time it came up for sale when I did a search. It's a hard card I think, even though there could be a decent amount.

There are so many Bond card collectors that the demand for these actors in those better roles is higher than the supply, even when the cards are not especially short printed. They are in collections, they are staying in those collections and, like X said, even if you are willing to spend stupid money, you still have to find them. Big Grin

The one Bond autograph card that sticks out in my mind as being incredibly rare is the first Famke Janssen full-bleed from the Dangerous Liaisons set:



Right from when it was released, it was difficult to come by. At the time, Rittenhouse didn't officially have a 'Scarce' or 'Extremely Limited' category. The card was merely listed as 'Very Limited', but it very quickly become clear that there were considerably fewer than 200 of them in circulation. Collectors at the time were quite upset about it I seem to recall as it was the first time a truly scarce (and expensive) autograph card had been produced for the Bond sets.

Going back to the thread topic, I'm very pleased with the new names for the set. Lea Seydoux and David Bautista are great additions. Denise Perrier is also a nice one (and a rare autograph in general). As X says, her role as the woman who Bond strangles with her own bra at the start of the film is memorable. Funny one-liner about helping her get something off her chest too Smile. I too also appreciate any new signers from the early films (Connery era).

My guess is that the Roger Moore autograph will be a 40th Anniversary one. We've had TMWTGG and TSWLM in recent sets. Looking forward to getting my hands on a Daniela Bianchi card (whether WOB or 40th I'll be hunting one of those down).

And finally, to full-bleed collectors who complain they have to wait ages for an autograph to come out in full-bleed style, think of poor me! I've been waiting for a 40th style Maryam d'Abo autograph now for 13 years!!!. It's not a case of Rittenhouse being unable to recontact her as this set will see the release of a 3rd full-bleed since the first WOB autograph in 2002/2003. If ever any collector has cause to complain, it's a 40th collector. 13 years beats any kind of waiting full-bleed collectors have had to go through! Fingers crossed for next time round Smile

These are the 10 Bond auto cards I would say are the "toughest". Rather than focusing firstly on value/price I have based my list on those cards most difficult to find (which of course tends to make them more expensive!).

The value of some of these cards can alternate, for example Ursula is a consistently expensive card and usually sells for more than Maud's first TMWTGG full-bleed, but the latter is much harder to find so can hit very high numbers when it does appear. But I've seen it sell cheap too.
Famke's first full-bleed that RP01 has pictured above is one of the rarest Bond autos, and a very expensive card. I missed a BIN listing of that one for £150 last year(!) but I would still put her near/at the top if my list was based solely on value.

1. FB – John Rhys-Davies (Bond Archives 2009)
2. FB – Famke Janssen (Dangerous Liaisons)
3. WA27 – Famke Janssen
4. FB – Denise Richards

6. A98 – Joe Don Baker
7. A56 – Famke Janssen
8. A32 – Ursula Andress
9. WA19 – Ursula Andress
10. A110 – Daniel Craig

And Tommy, Rittenhouse helpfully list all their previous sets on their site:

3. 2002 – Dr. No Commemorative Set

I know this has been asked, but how was the Rhys-Davies auto available in 2009 ?

Was this an Archive Box card ?

It is not listed on RA's checklist on its site

It was discussed in the 'James Bond 007 Classics' thread.

Is the 2014 BG75 the most recent Bond rewards card that RA has done ? Nothing since ?

Right for RA, but also Inkworks produced Women of James Bond in 1998 and The World Is Not Enough in 1999. I know they had autograph cards.

Inkworks also seems to have put out Tomorrow Never Dies in 1997, no autographs, and James Bond Connoisseur's in 1996, no autographs but a poker chip card.

RA picked up the title in 2002.

Just to add, the other deceptive thing about that list is the 2 and 3 insert/bonus sets that are getting included in recent titles. If you wanted to break that down by Bond movie you would really expand that list. To me they really are all separate sets, even though they may come from the same specific release title. For example, the upcoming SPECTRE might really be counted as 4 sets in one product if you want to look at it that way. Wink

I don't think there is anything deceptive about the list if that is how the manufacturer lists their releases. And as you say Raven, those film sets are 'insert' cards. They may make large movie sets, which are bigger than many base sets, but they are just chase cards at the end of the day that form part of a bigger release/master set.

I don't wish to sound a pedant, but purely for the sake of accuracy when people read these boards, who are unaware of Jeff Allender's wonderful website, Inkworks made the following Bond sets:

1. 1995 - GoldenEye (under their initial name 'Graffiti')
2. 1996 - Connoisseur's Collection Vol.1
3. 1997 - Connoisseur's Collection Vol.2
4. 1997 - Connoissuer's Collection Vol.3
5. 1997 - Tomorrow Never Dies
6. 1998 - Women of James Bond SuperVue
7. 1998 - James Bond Johnny Lightning Series 1
8. 1999 - James Bond Corgi
9. 1999 - The World Is Not Enough
10. 2000 - James Bond Johhny Lightning Series 2

Inkworks did not make any poker chip cards. They did however make several promotional poker chips:
- C1, C2, C3 (each serial numbered to 3,000 and seeded 1 per box of The World Is Not Enough)
- 'Artist Proof' chips for each of the above (chips are the same but reverse of each chip has 'AP' inscribed instead of serial number)
- Dealer Presentation Lucite Block containing chips C1, C2, C3 and base card #1 (only 100 displays made and all three chips have matching serial numbers from 1-100)
- Three unnumbered chips promoting the Connoisseur's Collection despite being made in 1999 (when the TWINE chips were produced). All use the same image on the front and back, but have different borders:
> all black border
> black border with quarter brown and red sections
> larger chip with black border and blue surround


And seeing as we've pretty much listed everything else, these are all the other James Bond card sets released prior to Inkworks and then Rittenhouse (not including obscure foreign releases or sticker sets/food premiums):

1. 1964 - Somportex - James Bond 007 Chewing Gum (the "Banned Set")
2. 1965 - Somportex - The Exciting World of James Bond
3. 1965 - Philadelphia Gum - James Bond Secret Agent
4. 1966 - Somportex - Thunderball
5. 1966 - Philadelphia Gum - Thunderball
6. 1967 - Somportex - Chew & Colour View You Only Live Twice (film transparencies)
7. 1969 - Anglo Confectionary - On Her Majesty's Secret Service (the first colour Bond card set!)
8. 1979 - Topps/O-Pee-Chee - Moonraker
9. 1979 - Alma Confectionary - Moonraker Sweet Cigarettes
10. 1984 - Monty Gum - The Story of 007
11. 1985 - Monty Gum - A View To A Kill
12. 1993 - Eclipse - James Bond 007 Series 1 (Gold)
13. 1993 - Eclipse - James Bond 007 Series 2 (Silver)
14. 1995 - Heartbreaker/Target - GoldenEye CCG
15. 1997 - Daleon Enterprises - The Official James Bond Bubblegum Card Set (repro + extras of 1964 "Banned Set")

So by now Tommy is sorry he asked. Big Grin

I think this is a good resource page for Card Talk's Bond collectors to answer questions they didn't know they had. Absolutely there is Allender's comprehensive site as the final word.

I sense you did not like my using deceptive as a word for your RA list X. It was not meant in the sense of anything wrong or underhanded I assure you. Of course those are the set titles.

My point was that the number is small compared to the number of ALL sets you could compile if you start to count these insert/bonus sets within a set. That is not how they are listed anywhere. It is simply my idea of saying that if you counted the insert/bonus cards, which are large enough to count as their own separate set, you would come away with a lot more to put on the list if you so chose.

A bit of thinking outside the box, nothing to revise the guides over. Big Grin

I'm sure quite a lot of folks are happy 'Tommy' did ask the question and many more are even more thankful that 'X' answered in a most helpful manner. I certainly am very very many thanks 'X'

I am also surprised that I have managed to acquire at least four of 'X's' top ten hard to find autographs.

regards

John Levitt

Supposed to release November 16th. RA has not posted the final checklist yet. So there's not much to say until the autograph list comes out and everyone starts arguing about signers and who got the better of it, full bleed or 40th style collectors. Big Grin

As ever looking forward to this release.

Very nice spread of cards in that we have one movie set each for Connery, Moore, Dalton and Craig.
I will be going after the sets for SPECTRE, Living Daylights (BIG Dalton fan) and Moonraker, because as awful as some bits of that film are, I have a soft spot for it.

Not bothered about the Mirror chase cards myself but am interested to see what images Rittenhouse puts on the new metal cards, I did like the SPECTRE ones - although I do worry about them rusting one day!
Sounds like we may have a more varied and interesting mix of relic cards than the costumes we have had in recent sets. I don't really go after these any more but I like to pick up the odd one or two that jump out at me.

They announced a couple recently on their facebook page (Russian Atomic Energy ID badge, Moneypenny's Files, Draco's Calendar):
https://www.facebook.com/Ritte...2336/?type=3&theater

They look like nice clean cards but I must say I prefer the old relic design with the faded poster background that started in Complete Bond and was used on the costume cards as well until it was seemingly dropped in the Classics set.

It's only a small detail, but I like that they have done something a little different with blue borders on the Spectre promos - I wonder if the whole base set will have this design?

The full auto list and the styles of cards are of most interest. I always hope for a couple of Women of Bond cards but don't expect we'll see any. I would really like a Roger Moore Moonraker full-bleed, depending on the picture used. Otherwise I would like to pick up full bleeds of Cremona, Bautista, d'Abo, maybe Joe Don Baker, and I will leaver Seydoux for the inevitable second full bleed that hopefully has a better picture of her.
Would be thrilled to see a Berenice Marlohe full bleed added to the final checklist.

There are 26 autograph cards listed on the updated checklist, and two I'm definitely interested in. Smile
Looks like this is having a low-ish production run.

Autos have been announced, there are 26 including 13 (half) extremely limited, hope that doesn't mean my ordered case is going o have multiple of the lesser numbered, seeing as usually extreme limited are (if your lucky) three of them in a case.
Berenice Marlohe full bleed hooray

Just adding up the print runs of all the pack-inserted autographs comes to a range of 5000-8700 autographs total. At 2 per box that's somewhere between 2500 and 4350 boxes total, and that's not taking into account autographs held back for replacements and archive boxes. So in other words, a low production run indeed. Wink

Yes using the relics that are numbered and 1 in 96 packs it comes out to about 8500 boxes so they are either gonna add some more autos or the relics will be coming out better than 1 in 96
