Default 75 x Marvel Captain America Hobby Boxes

I love this stuff! Ordered 6 sealed cases and 3 looses boxes and I finished busting them all at 1:30 am this morning. It was ridiculously fun and I hit some AMAZING sketches and lots of great memorabilia hits. Here's a sample of my favorites:

I was able to build 2 complete Autograph sets(4)
, here's a pic of one:




Almost a complete set of costume cards with several variants, just missing the Uber rare M-10 and came out with several duplicates.


Ryan Kincaid


Jason Keith Philips x 2




Lawrence Reynolds


Creepy Sarah Wilkinson


SP Artist Joyce Chin /28


Roy Cover


Frank Kadar


Artist Unknown, help?





Other totals: 6 printing plates, 2 comic cut panels, 8 autographs, 20 Insignia patch sets and a stack of other sketches, most of which I'm very happy with. It was the most fun I've ever had in this hobby, sport and non-sport.

Plates:






Sequential Comic Cut Panels:





Insignia Patch Sets:


And all the other sketches:
















And now for the top 6


Opening a pack and seeing 4 sketches in it is AWESOME!

Lawrence Reynolds 4 piece puzzle











What's better than 1 4 piece puzzle?











Another one!!

Hanie Mohd 4 piece puzzle









And how about a 3 piece...first one I've seen pulled, a Hanie Mohd 3 piece puzzle, Mucha-esque style!








Next up, another Super Short Print Artist, I now own 3 of the 22 sketches she did....











Katie Cook!



Goes great with it's siblings:













Next up is a sketch that literally made me gasp:
Charles Hall. The picture does not do this thing justice.


Which now gives me this pair:









But there's still one sketch that I will probably never top...










I badly wanted to pull one by this artist but knew my odds were definitely not good...












Are you thinking what I'm thinking?













Let's find out.













Melike Acar, enough said.







Most of the sketches are staying in my pc, I have several duplicates and characters I don't wish to keep that I will be listing on Ebay along with the other hits. I already have prearranged buyers for some of my non-pc stuff.

Thanks for taking a look and I hope you enjoyed the show!

Did you end up buying all of what they had left? I thought about pulling the trigger, but just couldn't justify it.

BTW - Killer hits!

Nope, they still have several cases for sale. I just picked up 6 cases and 3 of those 3 box combos.

Sure are! I've mistaken a couple for base cards because they were so detailed.

I've busted 111 hobby boxes of CA and have yet to pull one. It's been a year since release and according to worthpoint there's only ever been one listed on Ebay and I've only seen one break where somebody actually pulled it.

Hard to say, I think a lot of people who started Cap have moved on, UD put out a bunch of Marvel releases within a short period of time which is why there are so few CA breaks out there. I would guess a few hundred bucks, but really just depends on how many there are out there still determined to complete their set.

I would have to search - but I thought I heard it went for $600+. (Memory isn't great - but I swear it was somewhere around this price)

I bet you this seller hated himself... Sold it before anyone knew how rare it was.

You absolutely destroyed this break. Those are some absolutely gorgeous sketches you pulled with all the right names!

Thanks guys, I'm hoping that by selling off all the non-pc stuff I'll have enough to pick up a couple more cases.
