1 Box 2011 Americana
 
My wife has joined me in opening cards over the past year and she really likes the Americana with Silent/Golden age movie stars. She has been really lucky with her breaks and this box was no exception. Still deciding what is FT/FS. Definitely not Bette Davis

Here's the breakdown:
Combo Cuts Autographs - Randal Kleiser/Jamie Donnelly /25
Movie Posters Triple Material - Leslie Howard/Bette Davis/Humphrey Bogart /20
Movie Posters Dual Material - Carolyn Jones/Marilyn Monroe /499
Private Signings - Erin Gray /49
Silver Proofs - Mitzi Gaynor /100
Gold Proofs - Tommy Chong /50
Platinum Proofs - Ed Gibson /10

Yeah, I was looking up on Beckett and that one in particular is the shortest run of all the triple materials. I let my OPG expire so I cant look and see if there is a BV on it though. Even though the Marilyn is /499 it still books at $40.

Small world--I actually got that same triple /20 in my case. I missed that when I first looked at your post. I'll be putting my up on eBay in the next few days, so keep an eye on it if you want to see what it goes for. Probably will do BIN/BO on it.

Well, I got tired of waiting and got the OPG for a month. I had some other stuff I wanted to look up anyhow. I was pleasantly surprised to see the Bette Davis /20 BV at $125, I was expecting an n/a on it! Of course the /10 Ed Gibson is n/a.

Sorry :(

The last couple of weeks have been interesting for me and I'm way behind on scanning. It should be up in the next week for real this time :)!

No worries at all, I wasn't trying to blame you or anything. :) I am definitely curious to see what it sells for for you.

Just a couple inserts, no autos or mem. Nothing FS, we're working on the base set with the inserts. :)

Man, that went quick! So you had it listed at $75 and got a $65 offer. Not too bad at all. :)!

Yeah, if it didn't have a surface flaw (a light scratch from one of the patch windows to the bottom edge) I would have left it as BIN on $75. So your card would be worth more (assuming it doesn't have the same flaw).
