Default 1999 collectibles

Not sure if I'm in the right forum, but a question for the group.

Excluding Eagles, Hawks, and all other manner of spacecraft models, what Space: 1999 collectible in your collection is your most precious?

Quite frankly, my Catherine Schell autographed pic:

My complete collection of Sunnicrust Bread Space 1999 Cards - in near perfect condition. Rare and highly collectable.

I have the BIG Season 1 US promotional 'booklet' that folds out to become even bigger. A close second is my 66 card set of Donruss bubble gum cards, including a wrapper I saved. (No gum, though. It wouldn't be any more stale than it was when it was new! ) Then there are the comic books, and... and...
Do I have to pick just one thing?
Fine. The promo booklet.

My 1975 Annual, the badges (patches) come second, and the Viewmaster reels (even if they don't have the Hawk like they should.)

No Eagles? Phooey... okay next on the list would have to be my collection of hardback Dobson UK adaptations of series 1.



I personally do not care for the unattractive 1970s covers, but the books themselves are beautiful, the pages just old enough to be authentically from the era, and the feel of holding something made when the series was run is a wonderful tangible connection for this bibliophile. And the spellings are properly British!

I'd love to see pictures of the promo book. I recall seeing it in Starlog and it was being given as a prize. Thats one think I'd love to have.(As well as the soundtrack album)

Great pictures. I am curious as to why it keeps saying, American actors, directors story writers etc I am assuming this was to sell it to the US stations or something like that???? Its certainly a real treasure to own CR, you're very fortunate.

"American this, that and the other thing..."
Well, duh, it's 'cause America's so great! So there!

Seriously, sorry for that comment, it's just a joke.

Yes, this was the promo material to market the show to American stations. The mention of Mission Impossible and The Fugitive was also done as an attempt to 'draw in' interest from prospective stations, since it was assumed that American audiences would recognise those shows and the people from them.

I've seen the thing advertised for double what I paid for it twelve years ago, and I thought it was expensive then!

Oh, by the way, I acquired the annuals last year or so, and I really like those, too. And I also have the "Wargames" ViewMaster set, one of my favs. I even like my Pocket Books US paperback versions of the novilisations, because for years, they were my only source of 'screen grabs' from the episodes. Good times. I told you I couldn't pick just one thing...

That's a cool autographed picture of Catherine. I don't have much yet in 1999 except a few hand made items from when I was young. Hope to have more soon.

What sort of hand-made items, Rico? I'd be curious to know.

I've got a 1977 Space:1999 calendar courtesy of an old girl friend (From back then, let me clarify!). Love it because while not as exotic as some of the other items in this thread, it was an import and introduced me to British holidays like Boxing Day and Guy Faulkes Day.

Same here! I don't know what year it is because I don't know where the darned thing is right now. I'm pretty sure it is in one of the multitude of boxes on the upper shelves of my closet though.

It also taught me about Boxing Day!

The ONLY collectible I have that isn't an Eagle or a Hawk (or a tank, etc.) is an original US release LP of the Series 1 score. So that is far and away my favorite non-spaceship collectible.

Thought I'd already posted this photo but perhaps not. This is most of my pre-PE Space:1999 collection. I've also got a blank Panini album with all the stickers separate.

Having tons of eagles, I must say that two moonbuggies are my most precious possessions:

1) The first one is an original filming miniature from the series, quite dammaged and faded... but the original!

2) The second one is a moonbuggy from an italian guy - there are still some on sale on EBAY - which is very well proportioned, done in metal with LED headlights. I really like this model... missing details, such as exhaust, antenna or steering levers can easily be added to create a perfect moonbuggy.

Other stuff I wouldn't part with, are - of course - my PE-Eagles and 3 resin figures - John, Maya and Alan in spacesuit... they are a tiny bit goofy but still very nice.

(no pix today, sorry)
