Default 1 Box Horrors of War Series 2

Here's my single HoW box I just got today-

I was lucky enough to hit the Art Card in just one box =)




Auto of Roland Beamont, a British WW2 Wing Commander
Had a number of kills and medals, and was shot down towards the end of the war and imprisoned in Stalag III.





I haven't seen much in the way of completed auction for the art cards. Has anyone sold any or know what sort of value they hold? I see a couple with current bids at $40-50, but that's still with time left in the auction.

It was a really fun box to break for a box with just 3 cards in it.

What's really funny though is that Roland Beamont's nickname was "Bee"
I kinda like bees...

Nice job hitting the art card on one box. It's interesting to see the other pulls from Blowout's case #06 popping up.

Found this interview with Roland Beamont where he tells the story of his court-martial, among other things. Pretty funny story actually. HoW is so worth the money.
