Yeah, I love it. I was trying to think of what to ask for and then a tennis match popped in my head

BTW, tonight that seller modified that Charles Hall Ghost Rider listing to BIN/BO and I was able to get it for what I offered last week

Good for you man! I've had BOs turned down and then seen the dealer take a similar or even lower offer a week later. Annoys me that they don't just message me and say "if you're still interested I'll give you the price you asked for" but whatever... glad it worked out for you this time

Intervention time This is a safe place. Everybody here cares about you

Love the Treece! Looking to add a Treece to my collection. Missed out on a sweet one featuring Spider-Man and Spider-Woman on opening night for Bronze Age Was that a commission? I emailed him a while back and never got a response. I'm waiting on a bunch of commissions from other artists right now so I'm not going to reach out again until I have most of them in hand.

Yeah, I really like that Spidey too. Chris Foreman does some nice sketches and isn't too pricey.

LOL--well, 2 of those came from Hong Kong so I had actually bought them already when I posted that. The Galactus was an upgrade

The Treece was a commission--I saw he was doing one $25 commission a day in December through his website and picked one up. I emailed him the other day about it because I never got confirmation from him that he was going to do it, but he had already mailed it by then (was about 2 weeks from when I paid for it).

Thanks for the info. I was confused by his store I thought he was selling 1 x $25 commission per day (i.e., 31 for December), not that each customer was entitled to 1 each day Anyway... done!

Some nice mail today

First up, got these two Captain America Red Skull sketches in a trade:

Charles Hall


Lak Lim


Here's the Cherry AE 2-card puzzle I got from Mary Bellamy:



Picked up another Premier hinged sketch by Sara Richard (by the way she "officially" announced on Scoundrel she's done with sketch cards after she wraps up her current commissions). Getting these while they are still pretty cheap IMO.





And finally, thanks to the three members who PMed me about this Bronze Age card. Glad I was able to get it for my price because it would have been hard to see this one end up in another PC

Charles Hall

Haha, I was wondering if you were going to buy that Charles Hall Ghost rider sketch. Very nice card!

Agreed. They are all great additions but that Lak really stands out.

Yeah, I'm surprised her stuff is still going at such a bargain since it is pretty widely known that she is done. Maybe her popularity just dropped off?

Nice job with the Bellamy Holiday cards. They are probably the best that I have seen. I dig the Agro too. Seriously considered that one myself

Thanks! I should have mentioned the first 2 were returns that I got directly from Mary. The last one was an eBay pickup.

Monkey you need more of my cards in your set. That Arcade just won't do. I have 4 cards you may be interested in.

Well, I kept getting outbid on some of your other cards

Sadly, my card fund has run dry. Once I get it built back up I'd love to see the cards you're talking about

BTW for everyone else, I'm finally getting my SketchCollectors.com album filled up. Same username as here.

I think he was referring to a Jason Adams sketch card

Way to go getting those from Mary. You're one smart SOB Those two are definitely superior to anything I've seen on eBay. Out of curiosity - are they stamped AE or just blanks she was given as returns?

Thanks No, they aren't stamped. They were returns based on what she said. I only saw them because she put up a Youtube video showing all her stuff that was for sale and those caught my eye.
