Copies (from multiple places) are showing up for an alternate DEPZ-02 card marked and signed by Peter Best.

Nobody reported pulling one on the original release. I speculate that Best was scheduled to sign the Death Eater card but it looked like it wasn't going to happen, so they replaced him with the Trinder card. (They wouldn't think about using a redemption card for this series, would they?) Then the signed cards came in and found their way into a few goodie bags or dealer specials, or maybe they even ran out of Gambons as the Mad-Eye replacement.

Does anybody know?

Yes, this was printed as a parallel puzzle autograph for HP5.

Thanks,
Kay

Since  this little secret was NEVER revealed, I was very happy to find out that the card is legitimate. SO I BOUGHT IT,
taking no chances that it may not ever show up on ebay again. Knowing my luck, however, tomorrow there will be 12 of them show up at $12.00 each. Ah...life.

Got a follow-up from Kay today:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hi John,

Forgot to tell you, there's only 100 of the Peter Best autograph cards.

Have a good week.

Kay

Makes it a little more interesting, heh?

Of course, only we three remaining YAK SHACK readers will ever know about this.  ROFL!

I think we've all arrived at a very special place. Spiritually, acumenically, grammatically.

How peculiar!

This PoAU auto wasn't in packs either...

How very strange... it's as though Peter Best lives very slightly out of phase with the rest of us Wink
