Awesome. I look forward to seeing the sketch. For once, I don't have to do research on the person depicted. "Just watch the mini-series".

The autographs are nice but again the cards are a little scuffed on the edges, is this normal?
It is 'normal'. Consider that most of these gentlemen are/were in their 80's and 90's when they signed these. Personally, I don't think the condition of the cards is bad at all.

Also I did not win the instant win cards, has anyone actually won anything or is this a scam of some kind?
It's definitely not a scam since there have been winners. There are supposedly 100 bits and pieces of memorabilia total to give out. Still, in my opinion, the odds seem TOO tough. For reference, I have redeemed at least 24 of these cards (I lost count) and no dice. On a side note, what do your instant win card codes start with? I have USA, VET, and LWF.

Basically I hope the sketch makes up for the shortcomings and I might be willing to sell some of the auto's if anyone is interested.
You should get some offers here

I have 6 of the sketches for which I paid between $50 and 80 each. I may have got 2 of them in a lot with autos. Pricing depends on timing, demand, and the specific sketch but, unfortunatelyl, this is a niche product with a limited market.

Nice, I like it



Not to pester you, but did you have a chance to look at the instant win cards for the beginning letter? I am trading them for different win cards, or promos, or other cards of trivial value.

The Amos Taylor autos are just not showing up on the market. The only way people are getting theirs are out of the Ultimate Editions.

I've been asked to create 20 fully painted chase cards for the re-release of the Band of Brothers set. Completely painted in acrylic, there will be a few scenes, a few objects, and a few people. Below is one sample of what I'll be painting - the cards will be a bit brighter in hand, as acrylics can be tricky to scan. I hope you will like them...!

Very nice, Ingrid! I like that these are getting away from the portraits and covering other aspects of the war.
