So, will you post when they arrive? Just curious what you picked up. There were some really nice sketches, lot have sold already.

Yep--I will keep my Sketch thread updated with them as they come in. Since there are no sets to build here, I focused on quality over quantity this time

I figured. I like how he keeps it organized with specific artists. I did pick up a bunch from him when Marvel Universe came out.

I was looking through the "completed" listings today and I saw that Sara Richard Black Cat - Sweet grab! I am looking forward to when MM gets to her on his list (probably tomorrow) but from what I've seen it will be over my budget

If you like her work on the Marvel characters, you best grab one now. She's stopping doing these sets after this release, I believe. If not this one, very soon.

I love the cards and already made 1 base set per box (4x total) - but other than that, there's no other incentive to keep buying boxes... It's just buying the sketch cards that make the difference.. hmm.

That's sad news -- I hadn't heard that Sara was going to stop doing sketch cards. . . too bad.

I know. She is very personable. We had a long conversation about it. Actually, I was sort of hoping it wouldn't be too widely known. I'd love to pick up a couple of APs after the holiday season, but I'm afraid they will all be gone by then

I wish her much success in her pursuit of cover art though, and I'm sure she'll still be accepting PSC and pin-up commissions for a long time to come!

She shouldn't have much trouble at all with the cover artwork. Her style is unique and she seems to be off to a good start. My Marvel Premiere AP from her was approved today. Knowing the quality pieces I already have from her, I just told her the character and left everything up to her. I don't even have a scan of what I'm getting yet, but I am 100% certain it'll be incredible.

Well, I sure learned a lot over the past couple of nights! Picked up 5 cards that I can't wait to get and found out one of my past box pulls is way more valuable than I thought. Its been fun
