SELL: TWILIGHT ZONE handwritten and signed lines by actors in original 1959-1964 episodes

For the past few years, I've been selling my collection (originally 220, now 108) of 6 1/2" x 4 1/2" TZ Cards I had printed first in 1984, then more in 2002. I asked each actor to handwrite the title of the episode, a line from the episode, and sign his/her name and the role.  Some short quotes, some long. Many never responded. Many did. Two or three added "To Herman." I enclosed a self-addressed stamped rigid brown envelope to avoid bending or folding. Never to a studio address.
I stopped mailing requests about 1990. The later ones were signed in person in front of me, at the 4 TZ Cons in 2002 and 2004 in Los Angeles and in 2006 and 2007 at the two I organized in New Jersey. And the Hollywood Show in 2009 which included about 50 TZ actors to commemorate the 50th anniversary of TZ.
It has been 60 years since the first TZ episode was televised. Fathom Events and CBS Home Entertainment have scheduled a November 14, 2019, showing for “The Twilight Zone: A 60th Anniversary Celebration” at more than 600 North American cinemas. The shows will combine digitally restored versions of six episodes with an all-new documentary short titled “Remembering Rod Serling” about the life, imagination and creativity of the show’s creator. It’s the first time that original episodes of the series, which ran from 1959-1964, have been presented on the big screen.
All the actors who handwrote my TZ Quote Cards appeared in the original 1959-1964 TZ series. Most have passed away. The ones I still have, and the prices, are listed. I can make scans of any that a Live! member would be interested in.
The more you  buy, the lower the prices!
Reasonable offer considered for the entire collection.
At $7000 for the collection of 108, the average price for each is $65. Offers accepted.

Very cool, Herman.

My favorite series of all-time side-by-side with the Honeymooners.

I've been watching the Twilight Zone since 1962 and have easily watched each episode at least 100 times.

I watch at least one episode every day.

Wow, there's not enough of the older generation here to appreciate this but I am a big fan all this kind of stuff and that is a sweeeet collection. I'd love to have them but my wife would shoot me in the kneecaps if I put that on my PayPal. Haha. I would have to do a layaway to keep her from noticing. She never pays attention to me when I want her to, but let me try to be sneaky one time and she's on me like a monkey on a cupcake.

I agree with you, Scott.

Awesome collection.

I also have to admit this is very tempting.

I know, right? My wife just got a new vehicle so I have been running through my head how to use that as an opening but as of day, I have not found the intestinal fortitude to bring it up to her. No guts no glory like my grandpa used to say. Haha
