Industry Summit Giveaways

By Miranda Charsky
13 Mar, 2014

George and I will be traveling to Las Vegas this weekend to set up at the Industry Summit, hosted at The Orleans Hotel and Casino. If you are not familiar with this event, it allows retailers, distributors and manufacturers the opportunity to sit down for a few days and discuss the state of the industry. Although primarily focused on sports cards, as an entertainment company we feel it is just as important for us to show support by attending and spending time with retailers who contribute so much towards the health of the hobby.

The Industry Summit allows George and I some time to discuss content, licenses, pricing and marketing support with the retailers who are in the trenches and helping to deliver the content we produce to the collectors and fans. A great experience to say the least, it is a show we always enjoy attending and we come back with tons of great feedback.

As a special treat for retailers this year, we will be giving away unique, crash-numbered cards to the first 175 retailers (cards are numbered 1/175 through 175/175).



Cards are pulled from our 3 years of quality assurance quantities, and are limited to only one card for any subject.



This means there will be only one Nathan Fillion autograph from Castle Seasons 1 & 2 Trading Cards, only one DC Comics Batman: The Legend sketch card, and so forth.



We have included 4 special cards, which are otherwise completely unavailable: Downton Abbey Sketch, Downton Abbey Mini-Sketch, Adventure Time Sketch, and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Sketch card.

I hated it when they did this last time, and I hate it even more this time. All it does is devalue these card sets.

The image for the article was of Season 1 Laurie Holden (Andrea) A4 so that will most likely be the card from the first set being given away.

EDIT: Found the image -

How so? It's just single cards. Not like 50 more Reedus autos entering the market.

I also don't understand how these numbered cards hurt prices? I would argue that we collectors would much rather have the non-numbered card since it would go along with the other cards in the set and not stand out like a sore thumb. Compared to Panini and their Black Boxes, I have no issue with these.

That's sweet - thanks for sharing!

I agree it's a master set. Sketch "sets" are their own animal as you can collect artists, characters, medium, etc.

Heads up to everyone:

Cryptozoic just added some boxes to their site for their spring cleaning sale. It MIGHT include this release with a 2 box per house limit. Get them while you can! Good luck!

That was the message when they had them up for sale on their e-store before the cards release in 2012. Most likely just changed the quantity from 0 back up and never edited the sales page.

EDIT: SOLD OUT!

Indeed.

Expect pre-orders for S3 Part 1 to be up one month before official release in June. Pre-sale for S2 was on Cryptozoic's E-Store in November for the December release.

I'm in Australia so had no chance!
Awesome price for season 2 box. Hope some people post their breaks as it's been too long since I've seen new wd breaks- even if it is season 2.
