Also a lot of times on ePack people are willing to give away digital cards. . . There are several accounts on ePack that are literally just there for people to dump unwanted base cards.

Just saw this on another site and I thought it was interesting. Sean Bean signed his James Bond inscription card as his character's name, Alec Trevelyan, but that was all. He didn't include his own signature as Sean Bean.

Not sure how anyone else would feel, but I wouldn't like it. It would be fine if he did both, but otherwise I really wouldn't count it as an autograph from him at all.

I think it would be a good one to have if you already had a sean bean auto but i would not pay anywhere near as much for it.

Corinne Clery also signed her inscription autographs with her character name only (Corinne Dufour).

Maybe the wording/instructions on whatever Upper Deck sent the actors was not the clearest to understand. Well for these two anyway!

And I agree, more of an interesting variant than an autograph worth paying decent money for.

I hadn't thought of that and I wonder if it's possible that the idea of adding an inscription could have gotten them so confused. Maybe for Clery, because she may not have signed more than a couple of Bond cards in the past, but surely Bean has had much higher demand and has signed in different titles and probably as a show guest. Can he not know that he is supposed to sign his own name some place for it to be an authentic autograph? Wouldn't he ask if he didn't understand what "inscription" means?

I don't know, sometimes celebrities seem oblivious to their own collectibles and then some of them know everything about their fandoms and their market values.

I dunno, is it a bit sad that he spent more time and detail in signing Alec Trevelyan than he does signing Sean Bean?

Personally as an autograph collector I would not be interested in the inscription only cards -- there are a few coming out lately. . . I think maybe Upper Deck isn't being clear with their instructions.

Here is one from Goodwin, and I thought I saw another from Bond, but I can't seem to find it now. . .

Who is that? It's a little too small, but the only "Dollar Bill" I can remember is Bill Bradley of the NY Knicks and that's not him. Big Grin

If these are nicknames I wouldn't even call them inscriptions myself. If they are character names, or movie titles, or even dates, its a little closer. I enjoy the line quotes more, but also not really an inscription. To me these are all variants, especially when the card maker is giving them specific phrases to write and is keeping track of the number of each version going out.

An inscription is an addition by the signer, usually of a personal nature or something specifically addressed to the person receiving it. Card makers have decided they can use the term to maximize the value of a regular autograph card into a new type of premium hit. But it's still only an autograph card with a variant and some variants will add value and some may detract value, depending on how the card looks and what appeals to a collector.

What will not add value is if the signer doesn't actually sign his/her name anyplace. What kind of certified autograph card has no certified autograph because they are writing a bunch of junk? Big Grin You would think someone would know better. Wink

Correct. Dollar Bill was one of the characters he did on MadTV

Yup, an inscription is fine but without the autograph, its a bit of a miss for me.


epacks are rolling, still no rash of Waltz sigs being listed.

As best as I can calculate I don't think there are any more than 300 across the 3 versions.

Yeah, tough card -- there are only 20 visible Waltz autos on ePack (more could be locked in collections), and there has only been 1 sold on COMC.

So with epack there is a method to see which cards have been sold or open?

Yeah, it just seems to me, with such a full autograph and being a fan favorite between both Bond and Tarantino films I can't help but see most of these go straight into collections.

By default all cards that are opened on ePack are available in the 'marketplace' -- which just means they are available for people to make you trade offers. If you lock a card it disappears from the marketplace and no one can make you an offer on it.

You can get a good idea of rarity by comparing how many of a given card are available in the marketplace compared to other cards.

Also on COMC you can tell how many copies of a card have sold. I think there is a way to see how much they sold for too, but you need to buy points for that or something.

Do the e-pack daily free packs only contain base cards?

yes.

Some of the free pack cards can be combined in to physical cards, but some can't.
