Also....ugh, her name is VanSanten. CZE needs to fix that.

I'm pretty sure I want her auto more that Phoebe Tonkin. Blasphemous. I know. But Phoebe signed my 8x10 at a convention once so I do have her auto.

Ooh I want Adam Copeland! Kind of odd to have Rick Cosnett for season 2 rather than 1...

Who knows. Usually there are 20-24 signers in a release so.. maybe another 5-7 might pop.

Seems like they are trying to get dual autos now though.

I'd buy the crap out of these sets but the major players never sign same with arrow no felicity and no arrow signatures now with flash there's no flash signatures I mean they must want to much but even if they only signed 50 cards and then they were like super major hits spend the extra money and get the people we want

Felicity signed in S1.

Personally I like the list better than S1. Would I like it if the Flash/Arrow signed, of course. However, I can enjoy the set for what it is and be happy.

Can always buy a 258 West signature of Amell and have GUCD do up a custom card then.

I mean I like the show and lots of the characters but I would love to know is it cryptozoology that won't pay what they want or the actors just being dbags it's not like they do a lot of other tv shows they could take an hour and crank out a ton of signatures I just don't get the reasoning behind it

Default THE FLASH Season 2 (Cryptozoic)

One reason I love the marvel and Star Wars cards they get the big name actors to sign even if it's not many at least there's always that chance

I feel cryptozoic might be pretty tight with money which I get but honestly I'd be willing to pay a little more to get the major players autos just my two cents

Cryptozoic.

Any number of reasons.

1. They just don't want to. Period. And asking if they will do it before you get the licenses doesn't work, because from what I understand license comes first before you negotiate with any signers.

2. Too busy/time constraints. Yes, it might just be and hour or two, but for Amell, between training, charity work, cons, his family, Nocking Point and acting, his time is thin. But, why doesn't he do it for the fans? Amell does a crap ton for fans. Not going to bust his chops.

3. Too expensive. Just asking too much. At the end of the day, it's a business. Crypto tries to keep their boxes in the $80 range as opposed to UD/Topps that can just bounce prices around.

4. License doesn't want someone to sign. (I'm sure Jake Lloyd isn't on good terms with the Star Wars license)

5. Crypto doesn't want to deal with some. (Bad experiences in the past)

6. Agent never asks and decides they don't want the work for their client. (Very possible that Amell doesn't even know he was asked. I really think this is the reason Amell hasn't. I just don't think he is aware of being asked)

I've talked to George from Crypto and he said all of these are reasons that have occured. Throwing money at something doesn't always work.

Overall, I think they do a heck of a job getting these sets together. Sure, there have been misses (Breaking Bad), but overall they put out a solid enjoyable product.

Don't get me wrong I think crypto is an outstanding company there hobbit series are second to none and the sketch cards they put out put some to shame. I'd like to think that for fans somehow these actors could or the companies allow them to take an hour to sign some cards or even if they had to be sticker autos from there own him that would be awesome to me. I've already begun my search for felicity now lol

Who? George?

Trust me, I'm sure he is quite aware of the signers that are in demand and wanted.

Ah. I believe he has been asked before by people and his response was "I would if I was asked" which leads me to believe that they aren't getting past his agent.

This has been the case for a few people, its been reported in the past of an actress or actor literally being shown the regular trading cards by a fan and being surprised by it....then next set out of said show they are now on the autograph list.

I know some actors/actresses have certain parameters they have their people navigate with so its not a constant "every single offer" memo to them as with some celebs they'd never be able to work cause they'd be basically answering that type of question all day so certain things they have automatic nos with or leave it to agents discretion. With trading cards as said many dont even know they existed in general for their show due to how some of the licensing is done. It could be quite simple as letting their agent know "hey if a trading card offer to sign cards comes in inform me" or it could be more complicated in that personal contracts are involved that may prevent them from signing the cards or as many have said the money just isnt there to make it worthwhile to them. We dont know so its really unfair to judge the actors and/or cryptozoic in that aspect unless you know for a fact the reason and not just off of speculation. Getting to have lengthy chats with some stars at conventions helps

At least crypto knows better than to advertise mock ups of someone they do not have in order to get sales.


In regards to this flash 2nd season set. Awesome that Cassidy is signing for it and ArrowS3. She's still fairly limited but with now 5 sets she signed for her autos can be a lil more reasonably had. I still want a Ruby from Supernatural most of all (the replacement one of course )

I am excited for this set (and Gotham Season 2). I think Cryptozoic is doing an awesome job getting the majority of the main cast signing. But with them getting people signed multiple sets at a time, I am wondering if Tom Cavanagh & Danielle Panabaker will be in Season 2 at all. Any thoughts?

Marvel (UD) is every bit as random with who they get to sign for a movie. I won't list them out, but you should research all their releases me thinks. And before you go talking up Topps for Star Wars, you should see what they've done for The Walking Dead compared to what Crypto got done with the same franchise. Not even close.

I agree random but I feel like they often get the biggest names not always I'm not knock crypt I'm sure there's reasons behind it all it's more of just a disappointment. That's there's some big names we can't get
