You never know, maybe someone from the set on H and A fancies a bit of extra cash and is nabbing a bunch of everyone's fan cards to sell online.
Well that would explain how they are able to auction off these fancards in bulk at a regular clip. It doesn't explain however how they seem to have an endless supply of hand-signed Sharni Vinson and Tim Campbell fancards unless some of the actors are asked to sign a bunch of fancards before they leave the show which is possible.
Either way I'm really considering buying one of those packages as of late (looking for a Jessica Tovey fancard) but I'm probably going to pass because I have some real doubts as to their authenticity. You do bring up a good point ES, someone at Seven could be stockpiling a lot of these fancards and then doing a brisk business. There seems to be one seller in particular who only deals in soap fancards whether it be H&A, Neighbours, EastEnders etc. Hmmm.
One time when I was at PB, someone from the crew staff put a load of pre-signed fan cards on a table for any fans to take there were Tim Campbell ones, Kate Ritchie, the guuy that played Kit & the woman that plays Marilyn along with a few others, can't remember which. Mistified on here might be able to help out; I posted her a few of them to keep.
So perhaps they've been to PB, and have taken 10-15 of one cast member from something like that?
Just at hought.
