Indiana Jones Heritage (Topps)
Did someone know how many cut signatures they have on this set??? Confused
Just saw one on Ebay, I did not know they have cut signature in this product....
By the way did anyone contact Topps about missing item on some boxes to see if they can replace it wih something????

Box 3: P2, Parallel 20, 61, Higgins Auto, Full Set
Box 4: P1, Parallel 51, Harris Auto

Another disappointing set. Poor collation of premium inserts and base cards. Took 3 boxes to make my first set. Parallel design should have been on the fronts to easily disguish them from regular base cards and perhaps had a different color border. I won't be posting any sketch scans as 3 out of the 4 I pulled were repeat-a-sketches.

I think just the one.... ad sheet stated BONUS CUT SIGNATURES 1/1 of Denholm Elliot and Pat Roach

(the scan of back of the the elliot auto card has a gold 1/1 on it)

From my one case, I got a hit in every box, but I had two Waterhouse monkey sketches (if only I hadn't opened those last two boxes...)

Four autos: Ke Huy Quon, Vernon Dobtcheff, Michael Byrne, Vic Tablian

Four sketches: the aforementioned 2 Waterhouse monkeys, a sketch of ?? by Chris Henderson and an Indy sketch by Mark Raats. My guess on the Henderson is the guy that gave Indy his hat but I'm not sure.

I agree with your thoughts on the first sketch. I think it's Fedora (the character's nickname from Last Crusade. His eyes and grin really look like that character). Side trivia, he was originally written as Abner, Marion's dad, who had died prior to the events in Raiders! (Yeah, useless trivia, I know Big Grin).

1st case highlights:


Happy with the Allen and Capshaw autos, and while I only got one sketch, it was a great one from Jessica Hickman!

These are from 6 loose boxes my dealer had left over from everyone's orders. I had better luck pulling sketches from these:

I still have quite a bit left to open, not sure when I will get to them!

The top left one looks like Indy was just talking to your wife.

I bought 3 boxes today. Here's the hits.

Wilkinson sketch

Box 3:

Karen Allen auto!!

Very Happy with my box break.

Here's my Indy case break. 2 of the 8 boxs were duds but 2 had 2 pulls to make up for it. I'm very happy with the autos pulled. The edges of them are flakeing in the back though. After seeing all the great sketchs here i'm really bummed about the 2 waterhouse sketchs. Amy Pronovost color Sketch is very good though.

All boxes were numbered 12 5700

Box #1 Wolf Kahler Auto & Waterhouse Monkey Sketch
Gold 13 #296/500
Gold 65 #314/500

#2 No auto & no Sketch
Gold 85 #050/500

#3 Isla Blair Auto & No Sketch
Gold 29 #007/500
Gold 35 #108/500

#4 Roshan Seth Auto & Waterhouse Monkey Sketch
Gold 57 #136/500

#5 Karen Allen Auto & no sketch
Gold 55 #089/500

#6 Short Round auto & no sketch
Gold 4 #391/500

#7 No Auto & Amy Pronovost color Sallah Sketch
Gold 1 #075/500
Gold 79 #213/500

#8 No auto & no Sketch
Gold 44 #104/500

I received my 4 cases on the 20th to my surprise and fortunately, I did not pulled any Waterhouse sketches but I only had one big autograph hit of Karen Allen and the rest are common autos. Total of 17 Autos and 9 Sketches.

Here's my case breakdown on case #1: Overall, it was a one hit per box case as I had one box did not have any hit while one box had a sketch and an autograph.

Sketches:
Cat Staggs - Indy
Lee Kohse - Indy
Sarah Wilkinson - Dr. Henry Jones

Autographs:
Vic Tablian - Monkey Man/Barranca
Ke Huy Quan - Short Round
Anthony Higgins - Gobler
Micheal Byrnes - Vogel
Vernon Dobtcheff - Butler

Case #2: Overall, it was a disappointing case with the pulls falling below the stated odds. I had 2 boxes with no auto or sketch and one with zero hits (not even a parallel). The Karen Allen auto and Justin Chung sketch pulls made the pain a little easier.

Sketches:
Michael Duron - Hitler
Justin Chung - Indy bridge scene

Autographs:
Karen Allen - Marion Ravenwood
Julian Glover - Walter Donovan
Wolf Kahler - Colonel Dietrich
Ke Huy Quan - Short Round

Case #3: I guess it is a standard case to have 6 pulls as I have pulled some common autos which I already pulled and some decent sketches but not extraordinary. Again, 2 boxes with no auto or sketch.

Sketches:
Mark Goodmanson - Indy & Brody
Craig Rousseau - Sallah

Autographs:
Ke Huy Quan - Short Round
Vic Tablian - Monkey Man/Barranca
Wolf Kahler - Colonel Dietrich
Julian Glover - Walter Donovan

Case #4: Another 6 hit pull where 3 boxes did not yield any sketch or auto but one box had an autograph and sketch card. Other than the painted sketch card, the pulls are pretty much the common variety and duplicates autographs of what I have already pulled.

Sketches:
Jason Potratz/Jack Hai - 4 of 4 piece of a multi-card painting of the Temple of Doom
Mark Propst - Indy and snakes

Autographs:
Wolf Kahler - Colonel Dietrich
Vic Tablian - Monkey Man/Barranca
Anthony Higgins - Gobler
Philip Tan - Chief Henchman
