Hi All,

Back in September 2015 I was contacted by Darin McGowan via Twitter.  Darin is the Assistant Director and Storyboard Artist of Season 7.

As you can imagine it was a great honour having Darin follow me on twitter never mind getting in contact.

He wanted to get involved in helping the collection achieve it's goal of becoming a world record holder.

Darin kindly has let go something very special.  His Season 7 Crew Patch given to him by Peter Avanzino!  He also agreed to sketch me a scene from the show.  The patch arrived with a envelope which Peter had presented it in.

So after a good few months and the support again of UKG (UK Grading) we now have turned a patch into an amazing display.

It's always hard having something so valuable in the collection that's so hard to display and show off.  I gave the challenge to Steve at UKG and as usual he worked his magic.

Hope you all like the display.

Andy

Thanks 👍

Am really pleased with it.  With how big the collection is makes it hard to find something really special, this really is special and feel honoured to have it.

Thanks Otis, it is really special and am honoured that Darin chose it to be part of the collection.  Wanted to do something special with it, to show its importance but also to give Darin the confidence it's gone to the right home.

Steve and the team at UKG do an amazing job and have been a great support.  Some of you might have seen the issues I had with the AFA in the USA.  Steve is still working through the new prototypes for me and has never let me down.  If you need anything grading give them a shot. 

Plus he's helped me out with unique items like this.
