Just to jump in on this: Turns out there are some serious issues shipping to the US from the UK at the moment. I had several packages delayed buy more than a month waiting to get in. Apparently this is something to do with new customs regulations and the knock on effect from the weather. We have changed to FedEx who seem to be able to ship quickly but it costs a lot more.

If your in the US then be prepared to wait a little longer, this time it's not SI's fault.


Ok thanks, I had not heard about the customs issue before. I do know weather has delayed a bunch of stuff in the US however.

That's correct. After the incident last year where a terrorist bomb almost (or did, I forget the details) got on a plane, the US Customs decided that they would start x-raying/scanning every single package that came in regardless of shape, size, weight or declared contents. As their systems were not geared up to coping with this even under normal circumstances, they generated a huge backlog with the Christmas post. A package I sent to the States in November got caught up in it and took three weeks to arrive rather than 5-7 days. I'm fairly sure they've cleared the backlog but the 'scan everything' policy is still causing major holdups. Oh and just to add to the fun and games, parcels entering the States were not processed until AFTER they had been scanned. So effectively, they left the UK and then disappeared for a while. I had quite long interesting talk with Royal Mail Customer Services about the whole mess at the time.

I'm still waiting in the U.K. from a "U.K. Dealer!", perhaps it's the weather.

Anyone know if any Duel Autographs have surfaced yet?

I'm aware of the fact the Late Ingrid Pitt did not sign the majority, but wondered if a few were produced for promotional purposes?

How were the A13 dual autographs released? Were they for the year end packages from strictly ink? If so I'm guessing that they weren't inserted as randomly as most collectors would like. How many are rumored to have been signed?

Why are people surprised that there are SI "unreleased" cards about. The surprise would be if there were none Shake Head

So does that mean you have one?

I haven't even got my Barbara Shelley autos redeemed let alone the Jackie Pearce ones, I know why I don't like dealing with this company directly.

Was Jacqueline Pearce a redemption? I don't collect the Hammer sets but I got a Jackie Pearce S2 auto in my Yearset.

Sounds like just about everybody got Jacqui auto cards with their Yearset!?!

That or the Barbara Shelley and in some cases both!?! What's wierd is if Vampy has got a double auto card, why? When she's one of the most vocal AGAINST Strictly Ink? Even going to the lengths of starting this very thread!?!

firstly i must have changed gender since i last looked ?and i dont have the double but we all know the reason the other seller has the double auto. that being that they are what appears to be partners in the same company after what was said on another site,requesting sketch artists for future releases.and yes im vocal about strictly as they are the main card co that i have problems with ,due to release times and cards that never appear,and will continue posts on subjects that i feel aggreaved about.thats what keeps things moving other wise whats the point ?
