Well, If I keep picking up nice sketches, my plans might change lol but here what Im thinking:

More than likely:

Full base / Heritage / Extra Gore / Concept sets
A few Artist autos (have a bunch already)
All Classic/Comic Autos (think I may have this covered)
0 Movie autos (I would kill for a Tim Burton )

Id also consider:

Gold Parallel set
Creator sketch set

Not going crazy for the Medallions and Patches Probably just hang on to the ones that I pull/can trade for. I think money is better spent on the sketches

Normally that's my thinking, but I thought this might be a fun one to try to put together over like the next year or so.

Regarding the patches & medallions, are there regular and SP versions (and if so, how can one tell)?

I just made a list based on what had shown up on eBay so far. It does seem like there is a group that is not as common and some that have been pretty tough to find.

I got a great deal on one that had not shown up at all yet, but it hasn't shipped so I'm not going to post it--I know how those things can go

If this as SPed as it appears, I got a nice deal on it

I don't know how SP it is, but someone paid me $125 for the one I pulled.

Two nights ago a buyback was listed with a BIN of $39. By the time I saw the listing it was sold.

Were some the cards in the artist autograph subset shortprinted as well? As of yesterday, I noticed a Joe Jusko #15 hadn't been listed for example. It would be cool to see a list of all short prints.

My 3 box break was fine, but I think in the future I am just going to keep my money and pick up sketches that I truly like. I got burnt with 1/2 of a puzzle which was a bummer. If Topps ever announced a set with NO puzzles, I think a lot of fans will rejoice! Puzzles seem to be a time saver for many artists (which makes sense since they get paid so little), but when you only insert one image into a pack, it no longer becomes a hit. It is more like a half-hit. And someone else picks up the second half hit... so you have 2 unhappy collectors... makes no sense at all to me from a business stand point! I would have preferred to have hit a lousy sketch if it was a complete image (I hit one of those too with another of my boxes) to a half hit that will just be chucked in the garbage.

Basically, next time either have NO puzzles (I repeat, this would be awesome!) or control the amount of artists that are allowed to submit puzzles. That way you aren't forced to break up images and forcing an incomplete work on multiple collectors.
