Default The Walking Dead Set - For those interested.

I noticed that some people commented on the Walking Dead cards in a guy's scan with other cards. Here are the autographs and costume cards. If you're a fan of the show, it's a great set.

And I know this should be in Non Sports but some people here (in Football) were interested, so I'm helping out.

I bought a majority of the The Walking Dead binders BO had left. I also snagged a 12 box case off Ebay for $685 a week ago / including the ebay bucks discount. I am going to try to flip everything except keeping a base set & binder for myself. My sketch card was o.k. / George Deep.

If you buy a case & hit a quality sketch, you are in the $. IMO, some of the walker sketches are total crap. Some of the sketch portraits of the main actors are outstanding. If Cryptozoic doesn't reproduce this & sticks with the original 500 count produced for cases & binders, IMO this set has long-term value.

Nice job. Finally got my last card in the mail yesterday. Overall not too expensive a set if you got in for the $675 a case and could sell extras.

Your costume card of Glenn is very nice. I may have to upgrade mine. I got a nice one of Amy with part of a star printed on the front and also you can see printing from the inside of the shirt where the size etc was printed.

Yeah, I jumped on the full signature. Look at his others, they are terrible.

I pulled the Glenn, pretty cool.

So, just because you admit your posting this junk in the wrong place, that makes it ok to do so? This is bizarro world. Whats next, are you going to sell cards on eBay that you don't have in your possession?

$60 is an outstanding price, I would get all you can at that price.

I'm paranoid buying from the LCS because I imagine them opening box after box until they find the sketch in the case and then sell off the remainder of the boxes (the guy is selling two sketches). Not that I have much of a chance at getting a sketch but my very first box, the only one my dad got me for Christmas, had a sketch in it. Five boxes later there's been no sketch but I'd like to have the best chance possible at getting one.

I know but what I'm saying is if he breaks the case, opens say 2 boxes and finds the sketch, then sells off the remaining 10 boxes.
