Yeah, she's been doing some nice covers lately. I'm just not a huge fan of the sketch covers so it has to be something crazy good or a crazy good price for me to pick one up

Picked up this awesome PSC from our friend Amber Shelton:



And she was kind enough to include a doodle on the envelope, which I always enjoy

No worries--I love doodles

As for the scan, Roy Cover mentioned awhile back that turning your blacks way up makes the scans look much better. I've been doing that and it works really well.

These first two were the fruits of a blind trade with Spider-Fan for some GPK Chrome cards I had picked up. This was a lot of fun, especially since he knew what I liked.

Scott Rorie (from the Great Sketch Card Swap series)



Charles Hall PSC



Gary Kezele had some leftover PSCs from his Philly stash, so I picked this one up in honor of the big finale last night:



I've almost offset all my hobby profits for the year now, so other than some AP/commissioned stuff that's owed and two Mars Attacks Invasion cases I'm getting, I will be slowing down on acquisitions going forward.

Haha... you really are making out on the Ghost Riders thanks to whomever that artist was who didn't follow through in the Swap!

Both your recent Ghost Riders are awesome! As is that Mars Attacks sketch!

All of them are nice, but I really like that Black Widow.

Thanks--I really like that one as well (obviously ). I forgot to mention it in my post, but thanks to Spider-Fan for pointing me to these sketches.

Sellers: Please put character names in your auction titles--it helps character collectors out a lot

Very nice pick-ups indeed, Mr. McGee. There is something special about that Tina B, but that awesome Fabul had your name written all over it! Funny, I won a card from the set that ended a day or two earlier and still haven't received it yet. Fingers crossed that it arrives today

Yeah, that Fabul has a certain something special about it--had to have that one

Hope your stuff shows up soon!

I agree. Unless it's some obscure character, it should be an easy no-brainer to include the character in the auction description.

Re: Scarlet Witch -- Gary did a great job on that. I wish more of his comic PSCs would come up like this one did

All great pickups, but I really like the Kezele Scarlet Witch and the Rocket Raccoon.

Thanks everyone

I'm down to just a few things pending: a Mars Attacks AP (waiting on the official date to close the deal), 5 PSCs from Tim Proctor, a possible Ghost Rider addition if the auction works out, and my case of Mars Attacks.

After that, I'm taking a break for awhile. We recently found out some of our extended family is really struggling right now. It feels kind of stupid spending so much on sketches knowing that, so I'm going to be focused on that for awhile with a few low $ pickups here and there.
