I'd be surprised if anyone did.

All the sketches were supposed to be based on Episode IV: A New Hope.

Expect that sketch when it's the 30th anniversary of Return of the Jedi. Wink

I opened the only box I've been able to get ahold of so far (I screwed up and didn't pre-order any becuase I didn't know what was going to be in it at the time).

NO Box Topper! Weren't these supposed to be 1 per box? The gold reprint/buybacks?

1 auto of Ken Ralston

typical chase 8 tryptich 3 blue and 1 red

Frown that's what I get for only picking up 1 box. But the set is really nice! I'm glad I at least got that.

I might try to get a couple boxes more, but it depends on if I can find a good deal. Which doesn't seem to be very likely!

Congrats to everyone with their great pulls! Love all the sketches!

hey peter...you pulled some really nice sketch cards even though you had a few dud boxes in the mix...just to make you feel better...I've had 6 dud boxes also...and that's just out of 3 cases + 3 or 4 boxes...and to top it off...I just had to have a little ambulatory surgery this past Wednesday for a recurring bout of something evil...and my wife surprised me with a box as we were headed home...i was so optimistic...and all my "get well soon" dreams were CRUSHED with yet ANOTHER DUD BOX!!!..and to boot, it was even missing the RED foil card! Mad

...I'm glad you pulled one of my very abstract kinda COUNTDOWN cards with the X wings beginning their flight towards the Death Star...

...FYI...there are 3 and you pulled the middle sequence sketch card...



...and you can see where they fit into the film and my 156 sketch card storyline at...
www.starwarssketchcards.com

...and 2 GOLD cards in 4 cases...that's cool as many collectors and dealers have had NONE in 10 cases! Thumb Up

Makes sense the only thing is why are there scenes from the prequels on the puzzle cards ? If this was solely A New Hope they should have kept to that entirely. Confused

Hiya Len - Thanks for you response. Yeah I did get a couple of dud boxes and was happy pulling 3 (not 2) gold foils in my 4 cases. Definitely happy about that, especially the 1/30 Chewy. Did you write to Topps about getting those dud boxes yet?

Funny story with your card as I pulled it in the first box of my first case. I was more then thrilled as I had never pulled one of your cards before form any of your previous releases. It was definitely a good omen.

Hope your doing better after your surgery. Sorry about your other dud box especially missing the red foil. Actually I think I have your red foil as one box I opened had 3 of them in it. Very strange indeed.

All the best - Peter

I finally scanned the cards from my case. 3 autos, 2 gold cards and 7 sketch cards.

















Nothing huge but I think it was probably a bit better than the average case. I'm quite surprised how good the Fabbri sketches are, for someone who did 1000 sketches he didn't sacrifice quality.

I went to a card show today and I am very glad that I am a glutton for punishment. While I am waiting for Topps to get back to me on a number of dud boxes from my cases, I did bust some more boxes...no autos today!

Got the package from Topps today for my 5 dud boxes. I think I did very good but only needed the Greedo autograph:

How long did Topps take to get your cards to you?

You see when i talk about the quality of sketches improving this is what i mean. This is superb. Is this one of the more exspensive ones.?

Peter, congrats on pulling many excellent sketch cards. It's aweful that you had several dud boxes. Hopefully, you'll send them to Topps and get some sketches/autos in return.

Good luck! Michael

I was sending my reply after you posted your 5th case break. Then I saw your 6th case break with another 3 dud boxes! That's insane! Twak Topps! I really hope you send a letter to Topps and they take care of you.

Thanks Gofmauleg. Yeah, I just wrote Topps a letter on Friday with my 3 UPC's attached and now I just completed my second letter which is going in the mail tomorrow. Them's the breaks I guess. I am sure Topps will send something my way.

Cheers - Peter

Paying $50 to $60 or more a box makes you a beggar? There was a day when that meant you were a customer. However, considering the experience of many collectors it may be the most concise and accurate analogy of the how the manufacturer views us.

Confused
