vwnut13, everyone can have an opinion and you are entitled to yours.

When we are ready to produce Music, Music, Music, I invite you to our offices to assist in the production of the cards. If you accept my invitation, you will see exactly what is involved and why we make the cards this way.

I truly believe that once you see how and why we make the cards this way, you will be back on the forum with a much different opinion.

If you want to take me up on the offer, you can PM me for details.

All I have to say is both these products are wonderful. Beautiful works of art and history, very well put together and overall great eye appeal. You know both companies put a lot of time and effort into developing/researching/producing these sets. I would love to get a box of both products but the price range is a bit too high for me. These sets are for the true collector of fine works of historical art.

Does Beckett's name really add anything? They are so all over the place with their grading practices, it is my opinion that it doesn't.

You are looking at 1 base and making this comment. Did you know the artist was a member of this board?

Here is a wider variety. I think they look great.

I'm open to criticism, but at least tell me what you don't like about it. If you just don't like the style, that's not grounds to judge. You just move on. But if there's a serious flaw and you know what you're talking about, I think any serious artist would want to know.

I'm glad so many collectors like them, I thank many of you who have told me so in private. If you don't like them, tell me so I can work on improving in that area.

Even before I worked for them, I admired Dr. Price's decision to include so much art in his sets. He's really showcased some talented people across his sets.

Special announcement from Famous Fabrics, Inc.

We are thrilled with collectors’ reaction to our latest release, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW.

What is most satisfying to us, is the very positive reaction to our limited Base Cards featuring three different subsets; Presidents, Presidential Couples and Presidential Pets.

The 96-card set is just limited to 10 serially numbered copies.

When the product was conceived, the idea was to include every President who lived at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW. From the first President, John Adams to the current President, Barack Obama. The only President that did not live at 1600 was George Washington.

It has been pointed out to us, since the release of the product, that George Washington did have a very instrumental role in designing and building 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW. For complete details on how to submit your base card set visit Famous Fabrics Inc. | 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW

So for this reason, we have created the following redemption:

The first collector to assemble the entire 96-card Base Card set will receive a 1/1 Hand-Painted Art card of George Washington painted by well-known trading card artist Jared Kelley*.

The second, third and forth collectors to assemble the entire 96-card Base Card set will receive 1/3 reproductions of the Hand-Painted Art card mentioned above.**

So collect your Base Card sets and follow the instructions on our website: Famous Fabrics Inc. | 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW when you have completed your Base Card Set.

*Jared Kelley who is now drawing exclusively for Sport Kings LP, drew many of the very popular Goodwin Presidents cards.

** None of the same serially numbered cards can be used in different redemptions. Serial numbers of the Base Cards used in redemptions will be posted on our website to avoid duplicate numbers being redeemed.

I see the topic has gone off into the world of art and how much base cards are auctioning for but I figure I'd offer my opinion on OO vs 1600.

The price is the same. The real difference for me comes down to the fact Oval Office offers more $1K ballpark hits(in my opinion) than 1600. 1600 balances this though by offering the base cards and the extra cut.

If I was looking to roll the dice and the $1,500 wasn't a big deal to me I'd take Oval Office. In fact I have a legal pad with the entire checklist written out and every time I see a new card I cross it off. Clinton is about gone . If we get a few weeks into this and the low end stuff has all turned up I may make a run at one.

If I were a dealer that wanted to pick one of these up and try and turn a profit I would more than likely look to 1600. The big pay day might not come as often but if I get a Carter it isn't a total loss.

In any event the price tag is pretty high. I may pick one or two cards up on the secondary market but unless Oval Office's odds get pretty strong I'll be on the sidelines this week.

Looks like prices on the base are settling a bit, but I still can't seem to win any.
