Moy and treece are my faves, but I dig the Crosby and hamer too. Pretty decent case, I think.

I'm guessing the retailer thought I was in a 3-day zone and it turned into a 2-day zone for whatever reason. Since I'm not selling, honestly I don't really care about the launch date. If Topps wants to ban me, have fun

Thanks man--yeah, I think it was pretty good. If I find any of those rarer variations, that would be even better

Cool stuff! Like that Crosby and Treece.
As for early arrival - I get my orders from Rittenhouse a day early. It's just the shipping zones, as mentioned above. Sometimes weekends mess with their shipping, too, though and they have to ship early to ensure you get it before release.

UPS & FedEx have 'zones' defined on US maps. I am pretty sure there's a link to one on Blowout here somewhere. Pretty much it just shows different colors defining how long it takes for the delivery of an order from a specific beginning location. In some instances, if you're close to the edges of 2 areas, you get your stuff a day early as they can fit it into their process. It typically happens to me with my Rittenhouse orders. Used to with my distributor but now they just do the 2 day air and it works out no matter when the release date is from them.

Did you get that? I was thisclose to sending a PM to buy that. Very cool! The only reason I passed was in trying to limit my sketch collecting to the few characters I already probably spend way too much on.

Yeah, I was happy I ended up with it. I wasn't sure how the ink would do on the card, but it looks really good in person.

First of a bunch of MA sketches I've got coming in--decided to spend my 2nd case money on some fly sketches since they were priced pretty low to start (prices have started to adjust up now).

Not my favorite of the Repka's available, but got this one for a good price and I wanted to get one of the creator sketches for my MAI collection.

Moy's nod to Shakespeare's "Alas, poor Yorick" scene made me laugh.

Me too I've got a spy-related parody on the way from him as well.

Today's haul--feels like the old days around here lately

2 from Steve Crompton



The world-famous justice41 (aka Roy Cover)



And The Good Humor Man of the sketch card world, Ted Dastick, Jr

"Alien & Ginter"


(in case you don't get the reference, it's modeled after my favorite sports card design Topps' Allen & Ginter)

example:
