Did everyone's packs come sealed in plastic? The pack I got was opened with fingerprints all over the front of the sketch case.

Mine was a bubble mailer containing a box (no plastic wrap) with a sticker seal with the pack number on it.

One of my two packs which just arrived was opened as well, I'm not sure about fingerprints but the seal was opened.

Apart from that got 2 great sketches, couldn't be happier. The product was great and can't wait to see the next one

We had a few packs where the stickers kept popping up from the glossy finished packaging. We decided to keep the stickers in place since they were individually numbered and secure them the best we could during shipment.

For our next set we'll be using larger stickers, possibly rectangle shaped that run the length of the box opening. We're considering several different options when it comes to packaging, but most collectors seemed to enjoy the individually numbered packs, so we'll probably keep that.


One thing we will be doing for the next set and sets to come, is sell by the box(pack), and by the case. Cases will have case hits including some top tier artists, among other short printed cards we have in each set. Individual pack orders will be pulled from these cases as well, so everyone still has a shot at case hits even if you order 1 pack.

We're still not going to do any incentives for case orders, as we feel like every card made should be able to be pulled by anyone buying a pack, no matter what their budget may be.

Our incentives will come in the way of discounts for case/larger orders to bring the overall pack price down a bit. We realize incentives are popular with those who like to rip and flip, but we've weighed the options and decided it's more important to give everyone a chance at a big pull, even if it's a smaller chance with a 1 pack order.

Myself and the fellow collectors who helped start Viceroy are also big fans of group breaks, so we've been trying to decide if it were possible to have sketch set group breaks. For it to happen on these forums the cases would have to be sold via Blowout of course (which is a possibility), but we think it could be fun as a randomized Draft style group break or something similar. If packs run $23 or so, and have 3 'hits', each slot could be less than $10 after fees for the shot at a cool sketch or whatever. Could be a fun little add on to multi-case group breaks as well.

We're kicking around a lot of ideas, so please feel free to add suggestions either here or directly to us via the 'Contact Us' link on our website!

Those are some good ideas. I definitely am in favor of no incentives. Sucks to buy a product with no chance of pulling the top sketches unless you purchases multiple cases.

Thank you! I hate that tactic and it's the reason I don't buy any Rittenhouse products. I'm a by-the-box or a few boxes at a time opener, and keeping only the very best hits as incentives is stupid.

I wanted to make a run at Werner's cards too but after the set released and I saw how popular they were I knew I didn't stand a chance. I have these APs plus a couple more. I won't say how much but I would have paid more
