  1. Wow! What a great time to be a GB collector. Every day something new - what will we see, when will it be issued, what will the format be? Despite RM U-turns, confusion over dates, the compendium foul-up, the costs of getting them all etc, this has to be one of the most exiting periods of my GB collecting career (50+ years). Hats-off to RM for doing it this way (they will learn I'm sure from some of their problems) and a big WELL DONE to all the blogs and dealers (especially Ian) for keeping us up-to-date and working around an ever-changing schedule. Perhaps all future issues should come out this way - announce them one day and issue the next!
