    Finally, the last few pieces arrived today to complete my full run on the Early Bird sets. Thought I let u guys have a look at them as the 2 EB Certificates that arrived today were super minty mint and ungraded ... which if graded, may probably be 90s or at least 85s. This is a group shot of the 2:-



    It was a great score for me and probably formed the best deal of this year for me. Each Certificate will now accompany each EB mailer set variation.

    Here goes with the limelight:-

    1. Early Bird Certificate MISP (1):triumphant:



    2. Early Bird Certificate MISP (2):pride:



    3. Early Bird Certificate MISP AFA 80+



    4. Early Bird Mailer Kit [DT Luke] AFA85



    5. Early Bird Mailer Kit [DT Luke / Transition Set] AFA85:congratulatory:



    6. Early Bird Mailer Kit [non-DT Luke] AFA 85



    Hopefully, I get a group shot of all of them when I have them up on display. :p

    Latest addition to the family is the original newspaper cutting of the Early Bird Certificate advertisement that was found in the Houston Chronicle on 11 December 1977 - here it is:-



    Cheers, Mark

    Wow! Very nice run of EB items. That's great that you've tracked down all 3 sets and another 3 sealed envelopes to go with them. That is no easy feat. I'd love to see the display photo of them all together when you get to it.

    Congrats Mark. Those are awesome. Is there a difference in the EB certificates or the same. I don't own and early bird set but would like to in the future. I like how afa encased the sets. :unconscious:

    Great run Mark. As someone who received an early bird set in the mail when i was 7 years old, the set means a lot. It's nice to see the history of them categorized and respected this way. Good show.
