Captain America 1st Avenger case break
After seeing all of the cool sketches that cfind pulled out of his cases, I decided to try out a case. Unfortunately, I didn't have as much luck as he did. My case was solid, with plenty of color and nice sketches, but unfortunately no big $50+ hits.

I also got 2 sets of the manufactured patch cards, plus half of a third set. I can see why cfind bought so many cases, you get enough hits to get a pretty good return even without the big hits (and the big hits make it even sweeter). At $455 a case, I can see easily getting back at least 75%, and with a little patience I might break even on this case... and I would say my case was only average since I didn't get a big sketch artist or a short print sketch. Too bad I waited too long to try these out, with the price increasing to $515 I don't know if I will try another. Guess I'll just have to wait until cfind posts his next increadible break from the cases he has on the way, then I will be itching to try another one!
