The Complete Avengers 1963-Present (Rittenhouse Archives)
Finally got myself a box here in the UK. Very pleased with my pull.

very nice. for some reason, spiderman sketchs seem to be very uncommon, and that is a very well done one. grat's indeed.

QUESTION!

Okay - I know where I can buy half a box, but the sketch has already been pulled. It looks like any boxes that have a Stan Lee sketch have TWO sketches in the box. Therefore, I guess there is like a 1:20 chance this box has an extra sketch in it?

Anyone done that math? Is it worth my money in any way to break the rest of this box, or save my money for a full box?

save for a full, unless he wants like 20 bucks or something for the other half. i mean, ive only opened like 4 or so boxes, but i never got more then one sketch. the stan lee one might be on a different insertion ratio then the rest , but at most, you probably gonna get a stan lee sketch every other case, if not 1/3 cases. Why risk the money. im sure you have a base set already, and probably a full set of inserts. save the money for guaranteed odds IMO.

I opened a box that had a Stan Lee sketch and only one regular sketch. So, either I was jiped on a second sketch, or someone is telling you a bunch of hogwash.

Good luck if you buy the remaining packs.

I think Chris means that 2 sketches are 1 Stan Lee and 1 other. NOT that there'd be 3 sketches (1 Stan Lee and 2 others) in a box - unless it was an archive box *drool* But I could be mistaken.

Do you mean the sketch that has already been pulled was the Stan Lee sketch?

If so, then go for it as OWN already said, there should be another sketch in there. The Stan Lee Sketch did not replace a regular sketch.

I didn't get too many boxes but one of mine had 2 sketch cards, neither of which was by Stan Lee. I suspect it'd be long odds, though.

Do you know for sure that sketch card pulled was by Stan Lee and not somebody else?

As with all boxes, you have to ask yourself if you're willing (or can afford to) risk the money in the hope there's a second card in there.

The Stan Lee was a bonus and did not replace a regular sketch, my box that had a Stan Lee also had a Guy Dorian sketch. If the sketch pulled from the box you mentioned was a Stan Lee then there is another sketch left to be pulled, if it was the regular sketch that was pulled the odds there is a stan Lee left in the unopened packs are very long as it was roughly 1 in 80 boxes to get a Stan Lee (100 sketches and 8000 numbered boxes).

I'm assuming when you say the sketch card has been pulled, you mean the colored sketch card and not the Stan Lee card.

There's suppose to be one colored sketch card per box no matter what and IF there's a Stan Lee sketch card in the box it will be in addition to the colored sketch card that's in there. I opened 7 cases and never pulled a Stan lee sketch card.

I would pass unless I was for some odd reason feeling lucky. It would be a veeeery long shot at pulling a Stan Lee card.

Let us know what you decide and if you buy it how it turns out.

Just opened a box I got off ebay - had a nightmare finding one actually, but glad I did.

Box # 677:
LH1
MH6, MH14
GE1, GE5, GE8, GE9
And a sketch (was in the very last pack I opened - was getting worried there for a moment!) - not sure on artist, perhaps someone can help? I think it's She-Hulk.

Definitely a She Hulk card. And my guess of the artist: Matthew Goodmanson.
May 28, 2007, 06:43 PM

Goodmanson it is. I have a Wonder Man sketch by him and put a post-it with his name on the toploader.

Yes, that's She-Hulk by Goodmanson. Nice looking card!! Thumb Up

My quest for a sketch and character from each artist goes on. I have 28 different characters from 26 artists. Has anyone got a list of characters that were drawn for this set? Help would be most appreciated Thumb Up
