Seems like Cheung's Marvel NOW! sketch cards have a little more detail and color and with that a little higher prices.


When compared to his cards from Thor 2, the lack of details appears to translate into a little lower prices.


Must be a thread topic in there somewhere

Oh yeah Detail can equate to more value but only if the detail makes sense. Detail for details sake can make a nice piece muddy. But detail does add value to some.

Good point

Here's a couple fairly recent auctions of Jim Cheung's sketch cards from 2010 Iron Man 2 and one from the first Captain America series in 2011. Just seems like his cards from earlier sets weren't as "loose" as the ones in the Thor 2 set. I wish I would have tried to win that $54 Iron Man sketch card since it seems like a pretty good deal now.

Yeah... I actually like the $54 IM much better than the $150 one you posted right beside it... Someone got a great deal on that one!

Couple of different things in play here. On the earlier sets, Cheung only did 25 cards per set, and only 1 or 2 sets came out a year. In the past year, there have been 4 sets, and Cheung did at least 25 cards in each set (and based on the number of sketches seen, maybe more like 50 or 100 on some of the sets). More sketches = lower prices. Also, to do more sketches, it seems like the sketches were a little more hurried and a little less detailed.

The other thing to look at is how these cards were sold. Notice that almost all of the ones that sold for around $50 or less were auctions that started at $0.99. All of the ones that sold for $100 or more were BIN's or auctions that started with a much higher starting bid. So how you sell can make a big difference. I'll mention that I sold one of these cards, do you think I got $50 or $150 for mine?
