This is where Iím at Ė Itís at the point where itís a limiting factor as to how many more sketches from the property I will be collecting. Iíve only picked up headshots from the artist that I already collect (Brereton and Repka), and a select few new/rare artists (Finneral, Horsley, and Horley). Outsides of that, it doesnít really matter to me how detailed they are Ė Iím just a little bored having so many. Luckily there are other poses/images to fill the gap. I agree that the casual collector still eats them up and for that they have their place Ė but thatís not the guy buying 3-5 cases looking for goodies to add to his/her PC.

For me this will always be a 1 or two box product, not case or two. It's fun and the art rocks, but it does get repetitive IMO. Watching the breaks is fun though

Headshots can be very cool -- depending on the artist. I really like those day-glow cards!

Here's an example of one of my preliminary drawings (sorry about the scan -- it's actually a cell phone photo):

Thanks for sharing those, Russ. I love seeing where these cards start from

They probably won't last long. I figured they'd go for at least twice the asking price.

Yeah, for full color original art, that's a pretty fair price.

Out of my league, but fair

Topps Cards Support

I have sent them two messages relating to my MA: I pulls over the last 10 days, the second quite long and detailed, and have yet to receive even so much as an acknowledgement that either has even been received. Thanks for any help or suggestions.
So nobody knows how to get Topps Product Support to respond to messages sent through the contact form on their website ? Maybe third time is the charm as I've just sent them a third message

Have you tried calling them? I've heard they can be more responsive to that, but don't have any direct experience.

You could well be right but UK to USA phone calls are not exactly cheap

Looks like Topps pulled the painting auctions = "This listing was ended by the seller because the item is no longer available."
