Cast cards

I collect cast cards, started off just collecting from the soap's I watched at the time, then decided to write to a few other celebs. I don't know why but lately the replies have been slowing down.

The reasons for this could be :

Some stars don't like signing/replying to letters, which is totally understandable. I don't get agro like some people seem to do on DS.

Coronation Street send out Pre printed cards, in fact my collection is bumped up a lot by this service and I thank them for it, Emmerdale do the same. EE used to send out blank cards but this service was stopped sometime last year which is a shame. Hollyoaks also don't seem to reply to my requests fro blank cards but that may just be me being unlucky as I've seen whole sets on Ebay for sale.

It is a shame when you collect cards and one or two character cards are missing, and the stars don't reply and you can;t get it from the studio but I guess that's how it goes. I have two nearly full sets of Emmerdale cards that are un-signed as I never get to the studio now-a days even though I live in Leeds ... I used to go stand outside to meet the cast but I felt a bit like a stalker lol so stopped. It's a shame when I look now at the blank cards though and wish I had some of them signed by past stars and sadly, stars that are no longer with us.

Anyone else collect cards? How do you manage on getting replys and have you found problems with the TV company's?

I agree with you, I think it's a shame that EastEnders do not send out the unsigned cast cards anymore. If you would like a cast card of a character from the show then you need to write to the actor for a signed one, and not all actors reply!

I have been collecting the cast cards for a while now, I try and collect all the cast cards signed but if I cannot get a signed one then I'd rather have an unsigned one than none at all. It has been a long time since I have posted my collection anywhere and I have a thread on here, so I may get round to updating that at some point with all the new ones I have got if you are interested?

How is your EastEnders cast card collection coming along, have you got many?

I can't remember who the last unsigned cast card I was sent was, it's been that long.

I think that most of SOC's characters were in the list of cast cards I have no unsigned card for.

I think the latest cards I have received signed have been Fi, Ted, and joshy.

Have to say that the replies from Hollyoaks are a lot better than they used to be, I am receiving a fair few, which is good as I often think I am wasting my time posting letters off just to get no reply.

I got a signed cast card today from Andrew Hayden Smith which is pretty cool.

I know that some of the cast have had new cards done, and with a few newcomers to the cast that's a fair few new cards to collect.

Simon Williams replied today but with a generic black and white press photo so that means his character doesn't have a cast card.

Also had another Hollyoaks reply yesterday - a cast card from Rishi Nasir who plays Sami Maalik.

Very weird reply today . I'd written to Alex James Phelps. He sent a typed note saying thanks and sorry for late reply but also sent a paper version of a cast card .. I'm not sure if it is home made. I didn't think Travis had a cast card.

I tried doing it via my mobile phone but it hasn't worked... sorry.

Got a Corrie cast card today, one I had not seen so makes me think a few updates have been done. Good to see, although it means writing more letters hehe

Yeah it's annoying that they don't send out unsigned cards anymore, people took full advantage and there's hundreds on eBay. My replies have been quite slow recently, I think the last Eastenders reply I got was from Bonnie Langford (Carmel)

Like the user above, I also collect Hollyoaks and Coronation Street cards. Corrie have been on it recently with their replies, I got Melaine Hill yesterday! Hollyoaks are a little bit slower, I got my last reply in December :)

Didn't realise that Andrew had a cast card before he left, bummer! So nice to see someone else on here who collects 'Oaks autographs - I got a reply from Jacob Robertson (Damon) last month but that's the last Hollyoaks reply I've had! I started collecting Hollyoaks autographs late last year, so far I have Anna Passey, Jaqueline Boatswain, Karl Collins, Harvey Virdi, Haisha Mistry, Rachel Adideji, David Kennedy, Stephanie Waring and Richard Linnell I think :)

I've only recently got back into collecting the Oaksters cards as had a fair few replies, it seems to have picked up again with newcomers being very quick to reply which is good.

recent character cards I have received are : Armstrong, Damon, Brody, Milo, Misbah, and Sami.

I have written to a lot of the vast recently and am waiting for replies.

Emmerdale recently sent me a few new or updates of their cast cards which was nice .

Nice, will have to write to some of them! Would definitely recommend writing to David Kennedy (Dirk) he's very quick :)

Corrie has some new cast cards out, and some updated shots of characters.

Eastenders really need to sort themselves out cast card wise... they don't treat their fans very well at all IMO.

I've seen new cards for Paddy Wallace, Kym Marsh and Jack P Shepherd. Are there any others that you know of?

True. The female cast have had updates thru 2017...and some new cards produced like like and Mandy.

The cast changes so much it must be a nightmare to produce cast cards for.
