Well, if you're third you're going to get one of the three hits from box 6, right? EDIT: looked up the prices on the printing plates, not what I expected so this is wrong.

If the Matt Glebe doesn't go, you get that! You're in an interesting position and you may want to discuss with the #2 guy if you want to keep the two plates together. In my opinion, I like black, magenta, blue, yellow in that order as far as printing plate colors go. So you'd have the top two plates OR you could ask how much he'd buyout the other plate from you. This is all assuming you don't get a shot at the Matt Glebe.

Me, personally, as for the sketches I like the Matt Glebe then the black printing plate then the magenta printing plate then the Jeremy Treece (I really like this as a sketch) then the Amber Shelton.

The plates would be 2 different hits. But are plates as desirable as the other sketches? Keep in mind I am selling this and donatting the $$ to Connor and his family.

Not knowing these artists it's tough. I can see what some of the artists sell for but the character makes or breaks from what I can see.

Thanks for the info.

These are kind of all over the place value wise, so it's not cut and dry. I don't care about plates, so I'm leaving those out.

Personally, I'd say:

1. Glebe
2. Mychaels
3. Treece
4. Shelton
5. Levandoski

My top 3 picks would be:
Glebe-batman
Amber shelton-Gordon
Hayden Davis-Batwoman

I'm only familiar with Glebe..so my other picks are based off what I think looks the best.

Don't forget the parallel cards. It is almost a full set.

The last complete set sold for $65. You could probably find someone to give you the missing few to make it complete.

Agreed.

I assumed these printing plates would sell on par with other printing plates but boy was I wrong. After looking them up on ebay, the plates might be one of the last picks -- a lot have gone for $10-$20 on ebay.

Based on what I see, my vote is 1. Glebe, 2. Treece, 3. Shelton and considering the variance your best bet may be to do what you're doing and count up the votes ... I guess I'm not considering rare artists though, Monkey is probably right about the Mychaels being second only to Glebe in terms of cash.

There's a Scoundrel board member who's bought all but one of my Batman sketches sold on eBay, so if you end up with mine I'd honestly go straight to him to see if he's still interested. They were all Best Offers, but look to be roughly +/-$60. He's only passed on one current eBay listing, and I have to imagine they just won't accept his BO.

The unknown character is Magpie, fwiw.

Very nice sketch. I like the detail, especially in the overcoat. It's those little things that make a sketch `pop'
