Pack of Galen's Comtemporary Pinups- Help Requested
 
Hi all. I am just getting into non-sports collecting and ordered a pack of Galen's Contemporary Pinup cards off of Ebay on a whim.

I received what appears to be a gorgeous 2-card puzzle sketch by who I think is Aston Roy Cover.

Any idea as to the rarity/value of this piece? Just curious to see how well I did on my first real venture....

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Regards,

Very cool sketch :)!

Nice pull. According to Ken's Facebook page ASTON ROY COVER created 15 cards for this set. Ken's FB page is pretty active, check it out.

If your looking to sell, keep me in mind.

Thanks everyone.

One cool thing about this card is that it is textured- It feels like it was actually painted in layers and not just penciled and inked in. A very nice one for sure!

nice aston roy cover piece
was there anything else in the pack? .. base cards or just the puzzle cards

Every pack came with the 60 base cards that act as a sort of resume for the artist of the card.

Each card has contact info/websites/etc for the artist printed on the back.

Really quite cool.

It's very cool that several big time artists are members of BO and post info about their sketches. Thanks for taking the time to give us some insight into your method for this sketch. Although I have to admit, I am no artist, so some of it goes over me head. But still very cool nonetheless!

By the way, been wondering, do you prefer to go by Aston, or Roy, or both names together?

Whichever sounds more prestigious. ;)

Wow, an answer from the artist himself, thank you. it is certainly the neatest sketch card I currently own.... Did you only do two puzzle sketches for the series?

Yes, We did a very small amount of cards. I think I did 15 cards total. All airbrushed flesh tones. First time i tried doing airbrush on such a small piece.
