nice work - just keep watching gelavi and stormshadow for the good deals.

Looks like the Heritage parallel set is doing nicely, where the "multi color" parallels (green and even silver) proved weak for MAH. I guess making the parallels really interesting worked this time! They do look amazing.

Even myself, I'd really like a Heritage parallel set, but the prices i'm seeing them at are just too rich for my blood.

You know Alvin, A blank MA sketch cover would do as a nice replacement for a comp box.....Hint hint wink wink.
Oh and Alvin if you can and have time please send those puzzle scans I did to me here. justice4meonly@gmail.com . Would really appreciate that

I'm actually going to be helping our editor handle comp boxes this coming week, as well as returns.

EDIT: I actually don't have the puzzle scans. While I did scan all of your cards, by the time I got to them they'd already separated out the puzzles.

This is good news to me! MA has been my first sketch card gig and your hands on approach to dealing with my question has been awesome!

Lots of new sketch cards listed on ebay....don't see any of mine yet.

I can only speak towards my personal preferences... Parallel cards that are just a different boarder color do nothing for me. I like the sketch concept parallels from gpk chrome and I like the parallel ideas I've heard from this set. From that end, seems like Topps is making some progress.

I guess gelavi's trying to make up for his lost funds - he's got a bunch of creator autos up for $150 obo, and an Extra Gore Gold for $200 obo.

Well, he freaked out on the extra gore gold and went with an auction now.

I have never been a fan of colored border parallels. Just me, but there's just ZERO interest there.

Just a warning guys, I'm resorting my stack and found a few more Extra Gore cards--some of those are really subtle. Tricky, Alvin

Yikes, the Martians have attacked! I just checked my UPS tracking information on the off chance that my case arrived a day early, and instead found this: Exception - TRAIN DERAILMENT!

Just googled it, and it looks like 2 freight trains collided 2 days ago. Luckily no injuries! But UPS just got around to updating the information in their system today. No news yet if my case survived the beginning of the Invasion!

That was the point: I wanted to keep fans engaged with the set. Those and the graffiti-- wanted to keep you thinking "maybe I missed one!" and have you go back looking again!

Well, that's a stinker. I got my own piece of bad news tonight. My delivery actually was made. However, after I opened up my case, there are a bunch of boxes of GPK staring back at me. Major bummer. Was really looking to ripping some packs tonight.

Hi!
I have a question? Why didn't Topps Print Mars Attacks Invasion on the outside of the 8 box case?
