Default Sketch card ?

Can anybody tell me anything about this card and its value? I won it on Twitter and I've never done anything non-sports. Any help would be appreciated.

Well let's see, this is a toughie...it is a sketch card by artist Tone Rodriguez from Family Guy Season 2. Oh, by the way, Tone did 512 sketches for the set and this is number 332.

I looked up Family Guy sketch cards currently for sale on Ebay. I didn't see this specific one, but there are several and the cheapest one I saw was around $50.00.

The average price for the lower end sketches were around $65.00 and I would personally put this one in that category.

Wow! I'll take some of what he's smoking...honestly, it is likely a $15-$20 sketch. The sketches from season 2 were not as popular as season 1 (generally speaking, there were many that sold well because of the subject matter) and should certainly not be compared to the ones from Leaf which are done by the show's creators.

There are none on Ebay for that much but I am glad you took the time to actually respond with an actual helpful and insightful post compared to your first one.

Tone is a very well known artist who does amazing work and is pretty popular.

OP I am sorry for offering my opinion and the truth is this is what you mostly get from this site. Very very low offers and rude people that are no help whatsoever.

Best of luck to you.

Problem is, this isn't a $50 card. A colored sketch from Tone might get $50, a black and white like the one above will not. His sketches we fairly common in this release and the B&W were prevelant.

Actually, I consider myself to be fairly knowledgable regarding sketch cards, seeing that I have bought and sold more than a thousand of them. I, like many people, just do not have much patience for people asking questions that can be answered by just looking at the card itself and then checking ebay.

I feel that my assesment of it being a $15-$20 card is a pretty fair retail value...not an offer to purchase. It is a basic sketch (no color or theme) of one of the show's lesser stars.
Tone (along with many of the other sketch artists who worked on this set) did some very cool pieces for the two Inkworks sets, this is simply not one of them. If gentlevader feels it is a $50-$60 card, I am sure that you could come to a quick agreement for him to purchase it.

Igman, I did look on eBay but as gentlevader said their weren't any of this card listed, so that didn't do me any good. So I came to this forum for help. Then I got a smart ass reply from you and helpful replies from zerokruel and gentlevader. So thanks for the help to the 2 of them.

As it is an original piece of art, it is unlikely that you will find your card for sale as this set was not widely known for "repeat-a-sketches" where the artist did the same piece multiple times. Each and every sketch card is considered a 1 of 1.

Here is a link for samples from season 2

Inkworks | Family Guy Sketch Cards

Again, yours is not going to be a highly sought after piece because of the previously mentioned factors.

For what its worth, before the Leaf release, sketch cards like this actually did some really odd numbers. I know I went after a few and I can recall several weak no-color sketch cards hitting the 50.00+ mark. Not Nar either.

After the Leaf release, I can see this being a sub 50.00 sketch with the others having color on a more regular basis.

Ok well I did some ebay research and the last two plain black and white Family Guy Season 2 sketches that sold were for $12.51 and $11.45. But in my opinion this looks to be a better drawn sketch so I would say around the same price as Igman7 said maybe $20-25. Just so you know I am not interested in this card and this is just my opinion on the card
