why didn't they get Pitt and Smith to sign the same side of the card?
I would have loved THAT card (and payed lots to get it)
now I probably won't even get it

With most of the autos being repeats from the first set this set will be very much sketch driven.

I really wanted the Barbara Shelley auto until i saw it, could they have found a worse photo?

Well, as far as I am concerned this set is a spectacular fail.

Seven repeat signers out of twelve, three with identical images to the first set.

An amazingly poorly designed double auto card that should have been fantastic but instead is a joke with an auto on either side instead of together.

A reasonable costume card, but the signed one should have been signed on the front, not the back.

The most poorly chosen images I have seen on auto cards.

The ONLY redeeming feature will be the sketch cards, which of course now have no Dracula images.

What are Strictly Ink doing, this set should have been the bees knees instead it's more like a horses a$$.

It's a real shame as they would have both fitted on the front of that card nicely, well it's nice to have it in the set.

The binders are delayed 7 - 10 days.

Opened four boxes, only one sketch so far Frown

Autographs are hitting 3 per box.

Will post a break-down Tomorrow or Sunday.

Only 3 sketches in my case and no double autograph or signed costume. No box with 4 hits either.

One of the autographs is redemtion.

Will post break-down and scan of sketches sometime tomorrow.

Both Jacqueline Pearce and Barbara Shelley are redemption. The first case I broke had a master set of autographs + spares, 4 sketches and 3 costume cards. I didn't get any boxes with 4 hits either Frown

Much the same here. My first case had 3 sketches, 3 costume cards and one short of a complete set of autos (the missing one being Dave Prowse). My second case had 4 sketches, 3 costume cards and a full set of autos. Both had lots of duplicate autos.

Hmm, I rest my case Frown

I,VE heard that the double auto and auto costume was not put in the boxs,so people like myself who can only afford to buy box,s have now no chance of pulling the best cards from the set. i wouldnt have pre orderd boxs if i knew this,and i wonder what happend to the george cole auto, or as the autos are all out there what is going to be in the binder when it is realeased ?

I didn't know there was a George Cole autograph mentioned for this set. The list of 12 on the Strictly Ink seems to be the correct/complete list. I'm not sure what will be shipping with the binders, but it could be the double autos. A very long time ago, it was going to be a Chris Lee facsimile or actual auto but obviously that changed.
