YES I was sitting in the car when my wife came back to the car and told me there was a box of cards on the table for $5..so I went to look and bought it. I have never opened any starwars cards but Man I am so hooked on these sketch cards, just like the cases I have been busting from indiana jones heritage.
The lady found it in her sons closet, who was off at college.
I am trying to learn the artists and numbers. I already have some favorites...

Who is the sketch artist and how many did they do???

That son is gonna be MAD if/when he finds out it was sold for $5 lol. Maybe she'll learn to not sell someone else's things without asking about it first.

I told her it might be worth more then $5 really I did but I was not sure if it was hobby or retail but she said $5 so I bought it.

anyone know the artist?

Looks like it's by Lee Bradley, no idea how many he did though.

joe31 06-02-2012 10:39 PM

It looks like it says 1/1 on the back? Or are all the sketches 1/1?

THE_BEAST 06-02-2012 11:02 PM

Their all 1/1's

Even for a retail box, $5 would be beyond insane. Heck, when's the last time you saw ANY box for $5?

Do star wars sketches sell well or is it artist and color+ number of sketches made = value?
I appreciate the advice and help. I use Beckett for sports cards what can you use for non sport cards? Thank you
Most of the sketches I pull will be PC but some I will sell to help fund the addiction.

Alot of it has to do with the artist, and the quality of the sketch, I bought one box of this product last year, and sold my sketchagraph for over $500, I have seen at least 50 sketches sell for more than that.

Some artists that have a big following are : Charles Hall, Sean Pence, Len Bellinger, Sonia Alcorn-hender, and Katie Cook, if you pull any skecthes rom these artists you are basically guaranteed to make your money back, and then some

Generally in galaxy if your sketch is full color you can expect at least 20 dollars from it nomatter who the artist is often times you will get more. Pencil non color sketches generally don't sell we'll and aren't desirable unless it's a popular artist or has a lot of detail and sometimes a really popular character can fetch a little more.

Thank you for all the help. I have been collection Sports card for 25 years but am very new to sketch cards. It seems to be a cheaper way to have fun and collect some very unique art.

That's incredible! Congrats! I've never found an unopened box of cards at a garage sale. It's usually bags of base cards, and occasionally unopened packs of baseball cards from the 90s.
