Both good questions! I guess we'll get some answers soon!

With such limited production, it would be difficult NOT to sell out. Big Grin

Does anyone know if the Schell autograph card was added as part of the boxed cards, or are we talking about a bonus or incentive? I still don't see where it is mentioned.

Updated - It seems they intend that, if you ordered two boxes, you will get both variants of all the autograph cards done in that manner.

My guess would be there are as many dealers as you think, but they buy more than you think.

I had to make a decision between two similarly priced products, this and Halloween Ink from Perna. Halloween Ink won out because I already have most of the Space 1999 autos from previous releases. You'll thank me when you get your base set Smile .

£30 for a base set is I think optimistic Big Grin . Still no harm in trying, I have seen stranger sales on Ebay.

I notice that Dave Prowse disappeared from the list of signers rather swiftly. Expect his card/s will turn up in some future 'super, great, fantastic deal' at some point!

See that is the kind of thing that brings complaints. If you post the name in an ad, some people may be buying solely based on the info in that ad. It was implied that these are the 19 or 20 signatures guaranteed in the box and its the complete Ultimate list. So now it's not all the autos guaranteed, besides just the multiple signers' cards missing? Is the Schell auto in every box or not? Can someone just spell it out or do we have to wait for breaks to figure it out? Roll Eyes

-A- Schnell auto is in every box. She did three cards. Same as with Barbara Bain and one or two of the others.

Think Schell only did the two cards, so I guess 100 of each to go in alternate boxes. No mention of a third card that I've seen.

Thanks, the reason why it's important for me to know that is because the Schell is the second best auto in the set for me and without it, even though I know it goes for only around $35, without it I don't get over the hill.

Yeah, her series 2 autograph is pretty cheap.

What is the actual release date for this ?
October 03, 2019, 04:59 PM

Someone told me that the release date is now early November

Plus the dealer promos will supposedly be very limited, individually numbered, and with foil finish

Thanks to Unstoppable Cards and Cards, Inc. I was able to put together a Gerry Anderson UFO display. I've wanted to do this one for a long time as it's one of my favorite shows. Hope you guys like it....

Thank you kindly. Love all these British Tv series - UFO, The Avengers, Captain Scarlet, Thunderbirds, Space 1999 etc. All my auto displays are not exposed to any direct sunlight or harsh artificial lighting. They've been up on my walls for the better part of 15 years with no issues whatsoever. I feel that auto cards our autographs in general should not be hidden away somewhere in binders/albums but should be displayed to be enjoyed.
