Default Indiana Jones Heritage "break"

Ok, so technically this is not a box break, since I purchased these cards as a lot in the last Legendary Auctions sale. However, the lot description said there were 19 sketches included, but didn't list any of the artists' names, and the pictures only showed 2 of the 19 sketches. So I didn't really know what I was getting until I opened up the box once it arrived.

This lot came from the Dreier collection, and in addition to all of the amazing sports cards and memorabilia being sold in the auction, there were a few lots of non-sports cards, including 4 or 5 Lord of the Rings autograph sets. I was interested in this Indiana Jones Heritage lot since it included 19 sketch cards, but it also included a complete parallel card set and 30 autographs. Luckily, all of the autographs were listed, and they included 2x Kate Capshaw, Kathleen Kennedy, Lawrence Kasdan, John Rhys-Davies, and Paul Freeman.

On the sketches, I could see 2 of them from the pictures included with the lot description:



So I knew I would be getting 2 great sketches, from Sean Pence and Jason Potratz/Jack Hai. I bid on the lot based on the autographs listed, and the sketches would be a bonus. I was slightly worried about getting 17 Waterhouse sketches, but based on the autographs I really thought there would be a good selection of sketches, either from 19 different artists (if Dreier was trying to make a master set), or a bunch of high quality sketches (based on the 2 shown in the pictures). I waited impatiently for 2 weeks for the cards to arrive (since they don't take credit cards, and I had to mail in a check). They finally came in, and here's the results:






now for the sketch cards, with the best for last:


Henry Jones' journal by Cynthia Cummens, Slave getting his heart ripped out by Michael Locoduck Duron
Willie Scott by Howard Shum, Indiana Jones by ???



Indiana Jones by Katie Cook, Willie Scott by Katie Cook
Indiana Jones by Tommy Lee Edwards, Indiana Jones by Kody Chamberlain



Indiana Jones and Henry Jones 2-card puzzle by Brian Kong
Major Toht by Leah Mangue, Headpiece of the Staff of Ra by Leah Mangue



Indiana Jones by Cat Staggs, Marion Ravenwood w/ Monkey by Cat Staggs
Henry Jones by Jason Potratz/Jack Hai, Grail Knight by Jason Potratz/Jack Hai



Indiana Jones by Sean Pence, Indiana Jones by Mark McHaley, Indiana Jones by Mark McHaley


Obviously I was ecstatic with the lot, and I am in awe of how amazing some of these pieces of art are. I did some research on Scoundrel Art, and found out that the Sean Pence, both Mark McHaley, and both Cat Staggs sketches were artist's returns, so that makes them even better!

Sorry for the long read, hope you got all the way through this writeup. If anyone can identify the artist on the 1 sketch I couldn't identify, I would apprecite it. Thanks!

At the risk of becoming incredibly jealous, how much was the lot?

Thanks for the comments everyone, it was definately an amazing lot of cards, and I got them at an amazing price. I bid in auctions from 8-10 auction houses, so maybe 50 auctions in a year, and once in a blue moon I get a great price on an item (a $500 item I can sell for twice that... maybe 1 or 2 of those each year). But this lot is definately the best one, by far, that I have been able to pick up in the last 5 years. Maybe even in the last 10 years.

Legendary Auctions didn't do Mr. Dreier any favors in this listing. They didn't list any of the sketch artists, and only had 3 pictures for a fairly big lot... and half of the stuff pictured was worthless parallel cards and box topper cards. The cards came to me in 9 pocket pages, it would have been very easy for them to take 5 pictures of the pages with autographs and sketches.

Yeah, just based on the autographs I got a good price. I definately thought I would have to bid a few more times on it, and I was willing to go at least a couple of hundred more just based on a quick search of the big ones.

For those interested, here's a link to the auction listing:

http://www.legendaryauctions.com/Lot...uplicate-Singl

But be warned, it may not be for the feint of heart.

What's really interesting is that there was a hand written note included with the lot that was written by Mr. Dreier and it listed the prices he paid for some of the cards on ebay in May 2008. It's crazy some of the prices he was willing to pay... $686 for the Sean Pence sketch, $600 for the Brian Kong 2-card puzzle, $299 and $375 for the two Potratz/Hai sketches, $250 each for the John Rhys-Davies and Paul Freeman autographs. This was probably the worst ROI of anything in his collection.

You made out like a bandit. That's an amazing collection. Has Kennedy's auto risen in price since being named head of Lucasfilm?

Speaking of Kennedy....I know she signed 50 autos, but I have no clue what she "goes for". I assume its multiple Benjamins, but I have really don't know.

There are none shown when I checked ebay completed listings today, but I thought when I checked a month ago I saw one that sold for around $300.
