I hate these cards, they're always printed in a terrible four colour half-tone process and so tiny they're worthless. Don't even get me started on the woeful sketch cards!

Thanks Denis, much appreciated. I have also found there was another promo card released around Christmas time.

Many thanks, Big Bear. Wink Ha, now noticed I didn't post it on Steedumbrella. Laughing
Actually I saved the image of this last promo card in December, when it first appeared on Ebay, but I was waiting for a better scan of this card, which still hasn't happened.
Right now I will publish it in the form that I saved from Ebay. Wink

Yes, coming card set look interesting, especially when the company promises the following (news from 16 March 2019): Smile

Coming in 2019 - The Avengers Complete Collection - Over 100 Autograph Cards and lots of surprises. You have never seen a collection like this one.



Razz It sounds that this time we will see a long-awaited new Avengers card set with surprises actually very soon.

How valuable are pre-printed autographs anyway? It seems completely fake to me.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, as regards autographs from Unstoppable Cards, company uses reprints. It looks like more than 100 autographs will be taken from other cards issued by the company (that is, including from the TV series The Saint, The Prisoner, UFO, etc - any performers that participated in The Avengers).

Thanks for the info Dennis. I was only expecting one set of cards. This has been like waiting for a very late bus. They are long overdue, and now 3 sets turn up. Great news Exclamation

Today will take place Sunday's Spring Deal!

Frankly, I got a little confused, because while on Facebook the company Unstoppable Cards indicates that the deal will include one new Avengers card - an autograph card signed by Isla Blair...

https://www.facebook.com/unstoppablecards



...this card is missing on the official website. Confused

https://unstoppablecards.com/2018_SECURE/



Well, we will see, if this card is actually included in this deal, it will definitely soon be available at Ebay, for example. Wink

Alas, the release of the new Avengers cards did not take place this month as announced by the company in the first quarter of this year. Sad

Over the past weeks there is absolutely no news on the official website and Facebook regarding this release.

https://www.facebook.com/unstoppablecards

Again, as before, everything is very uncertain.

I find that "Companies House" is a useful resource for finding out what lies behind the flashy websites.
https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/07587832

Unstoppable Cards Ltd. is a "Micro Company" with two directors and no other employees. Their most recent accounts show net assets of £457.

It's wonderful that these tiny operations exist to feed our niche obsessions, but having had my fingers burnt in the past I get to be wary about who I pre-order with.
