I hope this is in the correct section, if not, please feel free to move it.

I can say with a fair amount of certainty, that i am the only person to still have two original star cards, both filled with 21 stars!!, which were placed in an envelope, addressed, and only required two 20p postal orders Laughing

Why they were never sent off, i will never know for goodness sake! however, i am delighted that they never were.

I see i also must have used the stamp for the Save the children fund Embarassed

Here are both cards, with the envelope addressed by my late Father (if memory serves me).......just look at the state of hand my writing!! at 11 affraid
I even have a few stuck in with bloody tape!!! Laughing

I cherish these cards, and whilst i can't say for sure where the stars were off, i remember some time back working out that a few are from the escape from Colditz set.
Neil.

Amazing, something which would have really upset you way back when, now gives you so much delight!

Thanks for sharing these pics with us, Neil. I've read a lot about the star program, but have never even seen these order forms before.

They'd look really nice framed up and hung on the wall.

Brian

That's fantastic Neil. I think you should treat yourself to a couple of nude VAM now. I always do the same after I've collected boxed stuff complete with stars.

I don't seem to remember ever collecting the stars, but I wish I had now! I might have got an undressed brother for Tom K... Wink

It's great that you've managed to hold on to those all these years!

These are amazing! Great to see .
Remember sending mine off for a free figure, still got it .
It was a painted eye fuzz head even though eagle eyes had come out that year .
Thanks for posting Neil
