In addition to selling the ltd. edition signed prints, giving out the card, we'll have Mantic's miniatures game on display as well.

I also hear that Artists On Demand will be at our booth sketching!

More news as it develops!

How much will the signed prints be?

We're leaning towards $30 for the numbered edition of 500 signed by Joe Jusko, $150 for the edition of 25 signed by both Joe and Stan Lee.

But nothing set in stone. We'll put out a release next week to make it official.

I think he signed an exclusive contract with another manufacturer. Of course, I could be thinking of someone else...

I believe so-- I was just upstairs looking at the schedule and cases were set to be delivered to distributors about a week earlier. I should receive my samples at the same time so i'll let you know.

As of Philly NSCS last month, Gary Kezele told me he was exclusive with Leaf. However, he also mentioned that contract was coming to an end...

This could be a situation where presumptuous resellers get bitten.

1.) set is only 95 cards (5 removed due to late artwork)
2.) it will take more than one box to get a full set.
3.) with an all-new story, the base set could be a lot more desirable than they think

Maybe i'm wrong... but this seems like one time where guessing on a base set before it comes out could be a mistake...

Totally agree with this reasoning. I presold sets for MA Heritage and sold 40 sets by the time it released. Within days the sets' value collapsed (as they always do when base sets are found one per box). But this time I am not preselling sets because of points 2 and 3 above. Maybe I am wrong too, lol, but worth the gamble.

I wonder though if buyers might call foul on the 100 card thing too! "where's the other five cards!!!?" I know it seems minor, but this is the problem with pre-selling based on outdated info! Buyers can be awfully fickle and particular, as we all well know!

I hate when pre-sellers try to get the jump on everyone else by offering full sets ahead of time. How can they possibly know if anything will be short-printed? They'd be obligated to sell at the sale price, which could really hurt them needing to include $20+ cards in a set they pre-sold for $10.

uh - you just say in your listing, "does not include short prints, variations, unannounced ssps, etc."

agree with this - it could happen - that is why you cover yourself with the proper verbiage, but in this case it was not a smart move to presell for the reasons you already stated.

Yeah, that doesn't sound as good.

"Complete set minus the more expensive cards."
