^ I like that Phil sketch.

The listings have been great, and I'm hoping when my package arrives, there's some goodies left

I gotta say though, that over the last 3 days, there have been a number of less-than-good puzzle break ups. Recently a 3 of 4 and a 2 of 4, and one the other day was basically a sliver of the back of an alien... which simply did not stand on it's own. Luckily this seems to have been the minority, though.

Yeah, it's really too bad this one got broken up--I thought it was one of the cooler puzzles we saw in the previews: 2013 Mars Attacks Invasion Sketch Card Piablo Diaz 3 of 4 Parts | eBay

At least he got the entire thing but each card stands on it's own. Hoping to see the 2 2-card pencil puzzles i did of Mount Rushmore plus the 4-carder of the US military taking off to mars.

These lager puzzles were meant to be all color. I had to jump back in and add some black and a bit more linework. Keep an eye out for the Military launch puzzle. I designed the big transport spaceships to look like bullets, as if Earth was firing shots at Mars.

BTW, the Join the FIght graffiti cards glow in the dark - cute idea as a sort of invisible ink.

Not to speak for him, but I started the same way. I opened a non-sports case to sell and was enchanted by the goodness that is non-sports. I didn't keep any of my break because I had bought it to sell, but after that I started collecting.

That's exactly my reasoning. Don't get me wrong, I like making money by breaking cards, but I'll try to keep one sketch or so from every product I break.

Might keep the Hochberg. Color really pops from that card.

Nice to wake up this morning in the UK and have a quick check on the bay and see a big increase in quality cards. That puzzle is frankly amazing. Great work!!!

It's also very important if the checklist is still delayed, that somebody gives a list of which concept parallels are colour, as they are near impossible to spot!!!

Here's a hint - the bottom card in every pack is an insert card, so if you pulled it from the bottom of the pack and it looks like a regular card, it is a concept parallel or a Gore.
