Frankly, Iím more surprised with the prices. This is expensive for this kind of products if we consider the quality and content. Shocked
I wonder how many there will be willing to buy one box for £54,99.
Moreover, the company refers that the most popular deal is worth as £179,99 (I see that there are three boxes, including autographed cards, and Limited edition - but many of these cards are actually not exclusive, as many of the guest actors have already signed autographs for other boxes earlier). Shocked

I received the first set of 54 cards today. I treated myself to the binder (see photo) as well which will hold all 3 sets. Looks great! Smile I'm not sure when the 2nd set will be issued, but I'll let you know as soon as I hear. Rich.

Unstoppable cards just emailed me to say series 2 of the cards will be out in April or May. Smile

Goodness takes me back to the 1990's when I was frantically rushing around in a flap trying to get every Avengers card available lol Looking back now I must have been nuts, a complete waste of time and money.

I know, same here. Collected them all, gloated over them, then realised they were a bit fuzzy. A shame as there are a couple that I've never seen reproduced anywhere else digitally or larger sized print that would really be worthwhile.

I should do that - I still have the complete set for the first two released in little perspex boxes. Wonder what they're going for now?

Uggh, they're worth next to nothing. Maybe $13 each set.

By the way, I notice some of the new "exclusive" autograph cards of the rarer characters from series 1 have used the images from my website.

e.g. The Astor Sklair card - it's not an image from The Avengers at all but a photo of Astor that he himself sent me many years ago.

https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Complete-Avengers-Series-1-AVAS1-Astor-Sklair-DS-Rogers-Autograph-Card-A/202838227674?hash=item2f3a19bada:g:H8AAAOSwEbBd4l40



So too for Julian Holloway, vignetted a bit.

Many of the actors who have signed for this landmark three series collection.

How many? And why do you need to retype those that came before? For example, autograph from Barrie Ingham. It was a big mistake to include this autograph, because start to analyze "if this is a reprint, how many actually did they reprints like Patrick Macnee autograph?".

Piers, many thanks, you did an important research for Avengers fans to open our eyes wider.

Unstoppable have contacted me to apologise for using images without permission - and offered to have me run a giveaway of a couple of sets. I'll provide details when I have them...


Oh, and as a sneak peek, they've let me know they're working on a large format book about Honor Blackman so stay tuned for that too.

I ordered series one the other day, when did they stop having individual packets of cards in the sealed boxes? I was pleased with the cards but disappointed not to open the packets, that's the fun bit! I just got a base set, 2 autographs and one sketch card.

Wonderful design, although I don't think the one slightly blurry with Tara was a good choice for.

This set does look great. Haven't bought any of these card sets for years though.

I have to admit I was somewhat confused by Steed and Tara's attire in the rocketship the first time I watched Bizarre. For a second I thought they were actually wedding outfits, but Mother's subsequent concerns about them being un-chaperoned completely dispelled that notion! Tara's dress was certainly 'bizarre'!

looking back at these photos...I still can't get over Tara on the hood, or ' bonnet ' of what appears to be a '1965 FORD MUSTANG' her lounging on an American car, does seem to be ' bizarre' as well.....lol
