This is what they are calling the next GoT release so far. It should be Season 8, but that got cut in half and won't pick up for the final run of episodes until shortly around the time this Special Edition should come out. More updates will be made in February, but the main news right now looks something like this . . .

It will be similar to Valyrian Steel, but metal cards were not specifically mentioned, so beyond being limited and high-end the meaning is fuzzy.

There will be lots of dual autographs, more character sketches, gold autographs, auto relic cards and more. These words come straight from Steve Charendoff.

This release will also include a limited signed Emilia Clarke relic card that is described as not an incentive. I am thinking that it could be a cut signature, as was the Jason Momoa in Valyrian. I say that because she has signed for RA only in the First and Second Seasons and that was probably cards done at one time. I doubt they had the foresight to do on-card relics. However Clarke had done signed cards for 258 West Authentics and others early on, so there is licensed autographs to cut if desired. Some of the Momoa cuts were thought to be off of his Conan signature card for example, but I don't know if that was ever confirmed. Anyway a Clarke signed relic will be a big boost.

Finally King Joffrey, better known as Jack Gleeson, will be back from the dead on a dual card with Mommy Dearest, better known as Lena Headey. Nice, but I would rather see Headey and Dinklage. That one may turn up before we are through also.

RA is trying to keep it interesting, but Special Editions are good for fans catching up and rough on collectors who are already there in MHO.

They've changed the name slightly then, because it was on the release schedule as "Game of Thrones Special Edition".

I'll reserve any excitement until the content is known. Their gimmick alternative autograph card styles are typically unappealing, so if this is full of those, then it's going to be of little interest.

This is the words Steve Charendoff used on 8 Jan on the Scifihobby message board, they are saying "Special Edition Collection" the "Game of Thrones 2019" is just the message board thread

"Jack Gleeson (King Joffrey) has signed more cards, including a Dual with Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) that will be part of the Special Edition collection!"

I've amended the title to include Special Edition. At least Valyrian Steel had a ring to it. Big Grin

Even a cut card Emilia Clarke will probably go for stupid money. I'll hold on to my pack pulled S1 & S2 autos. Cool
I will definitely want to know more before committing to anything with this set. If it was as 'filler' as S7 then they've either got to do 3 autos a box or have something groundbreaking to make me part with much cash. I expect to pick and mix for this set anyway. Cautious and considered. Smile
