aggie4ever's sketch card pickups
 
I like seeing everyone else's threads where they show off the sketch cards they have picked up, so I thought I would share mine. I don't buy a whole lot of sketches, I much prefer to bust packs and pull them. But I do keep an eye out for ones that I like on ebay, here's what I have picked up over the past couple of months.


Marvel Premier

aggie4ever 02-23-2013 08:58 PM

Here's a few more pickups from the past couple of months to catch me up, then some that came in today.

Mary Bellamy Kitty Ditties sketch
Jez Rojales Warlord of Mars sketch of Dejah Thoris


If you've seen some of my breaks, you know I like the Breygent z-sketch cards. These are 8x10 pieces of paper that fold up to regular sketch card size. I was able to pick up some AP's from Chris Foulkes:

Now here's sketches I've picked up this week. First up is a Katie Cook... if you want a cheap Cook sketch for your collection, you can pick up an Indiana Jones sketch for $20.

Irina Spalko from Kingdom of the Crystal Skull by Katie Cook


Finally, here are some Star Wars ROTBH sketches I picked up for my set:

Those Z-cards look great. I was so afraid to tear the paper on those I didn't do colors on any but one. I only painted the cards.

Ronin 02-23-2013 10:35 PM

[QUOTE=justice41;4326607]Those Z-cards look great. I was so afraid to tear the paper on those I didn't do colors on any but one. I only painted the cards.[/QUOTE]

Yeah, the paper does seem kinda thin, so I can see why you did colors only on the cards and not the paper. The markers definitely did bleed through to the back of the paper on the ones that did color on the paper.

[QUOTE=Ronin;4327483]i like the plo koon. for sale?[/QUOTE]

Sorry, the Plo Koon is for my set, so it isn't for trade/sale.

I almost didn't get the Plo Koon at all today, since it was sent in a PWE, and someone between Wisconsin and Texas tampered with the envelope. The end of the envelope was sliced open, and I can tell that the card was removed since the team bag the toploader was in was also cut at the end since it was wider than the toploader and wouldn't come out of the envelope. Luckily it looks like the thief didn't want the sketch card or didn't know it was worth anything, since he put it back in the envelope, and luckily it didn't fall out during the rest of the trip. Pretty crazy, huh? Here's a pic of the envelope, as you can see they cut exactly enough to get the toploaders out of the envelope...

Here's what I've picked up in the past 2 weeks. First are some cards I picked up from Monkey McGee (thanks for the great deal!):

[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/pickups1.jpg[/IMG]
Black Widow Marvel Premier sketch by Elvin Hernandez (AP)
Lady Death sketches by Mike Vasquez and Mary Bellamy


Then some sketches I picked up for my Captain America set:

[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/pickups2.jpg[/IMG]
Red Skull by Hector Sevilla
Wasp by Frank Kadar
Captain America by John Haun

[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/pickups3.jpg[/IMG]
Captain America by Cal Slayton
Tony Stark (or Jonah Jameson?) by Wendi Chew
Baron Zemo by Remi Dousset


My next update will be an exciting one for me, I picked up a couple of sketches by Amber Shelton that she listed on ebay, I have 3 great Star Wars ROTBH sketches on the way for my set, and I have my first commissions on the way (from Mark Bloodworth). I'm excited to see what he came up with from my suggestions!

aggie4ever 03-28-2013 09:15 PM

The past two days I've had some great maildays. First up are three cards I got in trade for some Blood and Glory sketches:

[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/pickups4.jpg[/IMG]
Bianca Thompson Wonderland AE
She-Hulk Marvel Bronze Age sketch by Matias Streb
Black Widow Marvel Bronze Age sketch by Studio Mia


Next up are some sketches by Amber Shelton that she had listed on ebay:

[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/pickups5.jpg[/IMG]
Tank Girl
2x Zombies vs Cheerleaders

It was also cool of Amber to draw on the mailer:

[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/pickups6.jpg[/IMG]


I also got in 4 cards for my Star Wars ROTBH set:

[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/pickups7.jpg[/IMG]
Cad Bane by Martheus Wade (a single to replace a puzzle piece in my set)
Cad Bane by Sarah Wilkinson (return)

[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/pickups8.jpg[/IMG]
Cad Bane by Denise Vasquez (return)
Embo by Grant Gould


Finally, I got in my first commissions, by Mark Bloodworth. Mark had posted a couple of auctions on ebay, and I bid on both, but I didn't really expect to win them. I did, then had to think for a couple of days to come up with ideas, since he wouldn't do copyrighted characters on the 5finity Creator's Line sketch blanks.

For the first one, I thought back to playing Magic the Gathering in college 20 years ago (wow, has it really been 20 years? man, I'm getting old!). One of the most iconic cards, and one of my favorites, was the Serra Angel. Over the years, there have been many versions of art on this card, but the original is still the best, so I based my choice on it. I just wanted her to be updated with a sexier outfit and with a flaming sword:

[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/pickups10.jpg[/IMG]

For the second card, I asked Mark to turn one of my favorite Benchwarmer models into a sexy nude vampire:

[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/pickups9.jpg[/IMG]

I'm very happy with my first commissions, Mark did a great job taking my ideas and turning them into sketch cards. Let me know what you think!

monkeymcgee 03-28-2013 09:18 PM

Great stuff, aggie :)!

I really dig those commissions you got from Mark Bloodworth :D

goggletan215 03-29-2013 12:33 AM

Really loving this thread. Great collection aggie!

garrow21 04-01-2013 09:03 AM

great stuff but i have to ask where did you get the Bianca Thompson Wonderland AE??

Cujobyte 04-02-2013 04:17 AM

Awesome stuff Aggie!

aggie4ever 04-09-2013 11:32 AM

monkeymcgee: Thanks Andrew! The Bloodworth cards did come out great, I was very happy with my first commissions.

goggletan215: Thanks, it's been fun picking up these cards.

garrow21: I got the Bianca Thompson AE in a trade, but the seller had it up on ebay for at least a couple of weeks. I also think I remember seeing them listed by Bianca Thompson at auction originally several months ago.

cujobyte: Thanks Nick!


And here's my pickups the past week. First some sketches I got in 2 different group breaks here on BO:

[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/pickups11.jpg[/IMG]
Batman sketches: Bat Mite by Tim Levandoski (rare sketch), Manhunter by BOO
Space sketch: Otvazhnaya dog sketch by Kristina Sepulveda


Next are 2 sketches for my Captain America sketch set. Thanks Thuy for trading me the Katie Cook, that fills a big hole in my set (although I was sad to see my Katie Cook Cryptids sketch leave, at least it goes to a good home!).

[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/pickups12.jpg[/IMG]
WWII soldiers by Matt Grigsby, Captain America by Katie Cook

Tivo32 04-09-2013 11:55 AM

Oooooh so jealous of that Sepulveda sketch! I have 4 but I want to add one more to have 5 of her 25 sketches for the set.

Awesome Captain America sketches as well!

aggie4ever 04-25-2013 11:17 AM

My newest pickups, the Red Sonja set is one of my favorites:


[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/pickups13.jpg[/IMG]

AP sketch by Bianca Thompson

2-card AP sketch puzzle by Bianca Thompson

spacefanmick 04-27-2013 12:16 AM

Very nice:-) but I think I see a pattern/preference in your pc pick ups. A very nice pattern.

aggie4ever 04-27-2013 04:20 PM

[QUOTE=spacefanmick;4771081]Very nice:-) but I think I see a pattern/preference in your pc pick ups. A very nice pattern.[/QUOTE]

Yes, I like women with a killer personality. ;)

No blondes though (unless you consider Lady Death a blonde), I have bid on a few Cherry sketches but haven't won any. Apparently I like strong, sexy women more than silly, sexy women.

To change things up a bit, I will add this one to my thread. Didn't actually pick it up, I pulled it from an incentive pack. But it's such a great card, I wanted to show it off again:

[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/hetrickmgbsketch1.jpg[/IMG]

Cujobyte 04-27-2013 05:58 PM

That card's perspective is amazing, great pick up!!!

aggie4ever 05-04-2013 04:40 PM

Here's my pickups for this week. A card for my Captain America sketch set, and a pickup from the new Superman set:


[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/pickups15.jpg[/IMG]
Manchester Black vs. Superman 2-card puzzle by Benjamin Glendenning
Captain America sketch by Kevin Graham

aggie4ever 05-19-2013 12:55 PM

It's been a couple of quiet weeks for me (been busting boxes instead of picking up singles), but I did pick up 2 sketches for my sets:


[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/pickups16.jpg[/IMG]
ROTBH sketch: ??? by Jason Keith Phillips
CA sketch: Black Widow by Joyce Chin

aggie4ever 06-18-2013 02:24 PM

Only a couple of pickups in the past month, although I have a handful of sketch cards on the way.

[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/pickups17.jpg[/IMG]
Bettie Page sketch card by Carolyn Edwards (AP)
double-sided Bettie Page sketch card by ??? (not signed)

[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/pickups18.jpg[/IMG]
Bombshells sketch card by Gabe Hernandez
back of the double-sided Bettie Page sketch card


The Bombshells sketch card was a free bonus from the distributor I bought my packs from. Apparently some artists sent their sketch cards in too late to be inserted into sets, and the distributor picked them up and gave them out to people who bought packs. Pretty cool bonus!

If anyone recognizes the artist on the double-sided Bettie Page sketch card, I would appreciate an id. Thanks!

aggie4ever 07-04-2013 11:42 PM

I've had some nice pickups the past 2 weeks. First up are a couple of z-sketches, I'm a big fan of these cards:


[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/pickups19.jpg[/IMG]
Vampirella z-sketch by Carolyn Edwards

[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/pickups20.jpg[/IMG]
World of Fantasy z-sketch by Bianca Thompson


Next up are a couple of artist's proofs that I picked up:

[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/pickups21.jpg[/IMG]
Angels & Demons 2-card puzzle by Shane McCormack (AP)
Black Widow IM 2 sketch by Hanie Mohd (AP)


Finally, a nice 5x7 work by Shane McCormack, then some Star Wars ROTBH sketches for my sketch set (thanks eldavojohn for trading me 4 of them!):

[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/pickups22.jpg[/IMG]
Natalie Portman as Padme Amidala 5x7 sketch by Shane McCormack
Cad Bane by Monte Moore, Clone Trooper by Cal Slayton

[IMG]http://www.intergate.com/~mikeege/magic/pickups23.jpg[/IMG]
Chancellor Palpatine by John Beatty, Clone Trooper by Robert Hendrickson, Clone Trooper by Bryan Morton


On the McCormack's, I purchased them from Shane on ebay. Even though he is located in Ireland, it only took a week for the items to reach me, so I am very happy with the quick shipping, and his sketches are great.

aggie4ever 08-23-2013 03:47 PM

That Thompson is awesome Aggie!

aggie4ever 09-09-2013 02:18 PM

Latest pickups... I didn't pull a sketch by Amber Shelton out of my Contemporary Pinups Puzzle Jam sets, so I picked one up on ebay. I also picked up a sketch for my Captain America sketch set.
