This group acts with a quickness when there are cards we want and the price is right

Thanks! Your cards are outstanding as well. I enjoyed working on the puzzles, but understand why they can frustrate collectors. You have to enjoy the chase though!

Hope to see one or two of my colored puzzles appear on ebay soon.

Monster, Since I just snagged the close-up "brain" piece... can you tell me what the rest of the puzzle consists of?

So this n00b just tore through his boxes.

I'm not a n00b to card collecting, but moreso at the level of chase / sketch cards. As a kid I collected various non sports cards, most notably Wacky Packages. I still have my original complete series 1-10 sets from the 70's. I bought stuff here and there but never as a completest (I would always go for the complete base set. I forget how I collected Mars Attacks Heritage, I may have bought the base set on eBay (never cared for gold parallels, etc).

At the Topps booth at NYCC in 2012, I was fortunate enough to get a sketch card from all of the artists that appeared.

Before I turn folks away due to the length, I'll get back to this set. I had preordered two lonely boxes, but after seeing the previews of the amazing sketch work, I ordered two more... this is a lot for me.

Here's the yield from the boxes-
> 1 Munchkin card
> 1 Extra Gore #1
> 1 Concept #13
> 1 Heritage printing plate, black #23
> 1 Patch, MP-16
> 1 Medallion MM-8
> 1 Classic Creator auto - Len Brown!

As for the sketches, all are nice (no duds), but sadly no Proctor, Dastick, or Cook.
> Sketch 1: Jeffrey Moy. Pencil / nice
> Sketch 2: ??? Dan Brereton. Several colors / nice
> Sketch 3: Tom Krohne. Color / nice
> Sketch 4: Jeff Zapata. Color / nice

Pics will come in a bit.

I don't understand why some of the other 4-piece sketches were broken up, yet this puzzle was not (I am assuming here this one was not broken up anyway by the way the seller has his in his listing)...

2013 Topps Mars Attacks Invasion 4 Sketch Puzzle Adam Levine One of One 1 1 | eBay

Nothing against this puzzle, but all four of these puzzle pieces would work perfectly fine as individual pieces.

I agree, if they had to break up some puzzles it would have been better to take the time and sort through them. Break up puzzles that could stand as single cards, or as 2 card hot packs. Some of the single puzzle pieces I have seen on ebay are horrible. Its one of the reaons I decided not to risk buying (since I was only going to get a box or two, and not an entire case) and to puchase a set and singles instead.

The good thing about only needing the "hand" piece of Jason's puzzle is that if it does pop up on ebay, I should be able to get it cheap. Can't think of many people that are going to drop bids on a card like that (even though the whole thing together ROCKS)

I finally landed a Ted sketch today! This was definitely one sketch I was looking for after seeing some of his sketch previews for the set.

They wouldn't get it from me. I have all the important pieces and would honestly sooner ask Jason himself to make me a new hand with a blank commission card.
