Default Indiana Jones Heritage xmas promo case break

Got a case from the 12 Days of Christmas promo, and did fairly well. The case started off with a bang, but unfortunately ended with a whimper...

Box #1 - 2 hits!
Colleen Doran sketch (1:6202)
a nice color sketch of Indiana Jones and Short Round
David Rabbitte sketch (1:5169)
a nicely detailed sketch of Henry Jones Sr., that unfortunately has a roller mark down the middle

Box #2
Julian Glover autograph as Walter Donovan

Box #3
Jeff Chandler sketch (1:3101)
a cool sketch of the monkey man

Box #4
Philip Tan autograph as Chief Henchman

Box #5
Wolf Kahler autograph as Colonel Dietrich

Box #6
Julian Glover autograph as Walter Donovan, that is unfortunately crimped on the bottom edge

Box #7
Ryan Waterhouse sketch (1:258)
the usual crummy Waterhouse sketch that's not worth scanning

Box #8
unfortunately no sketch or autograph







Not a bad case with three nice sketches (although 1 is damaged). But the second half of the case was a dissapointment after it started off so well.

Those Doran and Chandler sketches are very nice. I'm disappointed I missed out on those cases.

I would say this is an above average case break for sure. If you only get one dud box a case I think you are doing good. Those sketches are very nice indeed.

Nice break. Where did you find the artist odds?

Nice Break. Here is the correct link for artist odds I think.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

Yes, it did help out that the first box had 2 sketches to make up for the last box. In fact, the Doran sketch was in the very first pack, and I almost didn't open up the rest of the box, since you typically just get 1 hit per box. But then I opened the rest (since what am I going to do with some random sealed packs of indiana jones?), and was plesently surprised at the second hit.

And yes, I did get the sketch odds straight from the Topps website at the link above.
