Can't you tell by looking at the cards - by whether you like them or not? What criteria do you use to assess the cards you pull?

Well, they are rarity level B, C and D respectively so that pull beats the odds if that's what you're asking. Like Viola, liking the sketches is important for me. I like to have scenes or context in the sketch, but I know other people really like the character portraits so it depends what you like as to how well you went.

My first case ever ...
Unfortunately not quite the breakdown I would have hoped for, I was hoping to get a lot more different artists.

Della Vecchia (8) all pencil
Shum (4) all pencil
Fabbri (2) all pencil
O'Neill (1) pencil
Teranishi (1) black ink

Didn't get any gold or refractor cards or original 1/1 art.

Still, all in all great cards and I had a real rush opening all those boxes.

Smile

I just opened my box
2 base sets
complete etched foil set (fantastic looking set)
complete silver foil set (silver looks better than bronze or gold anyway)
1 bronze parallel Gandalf
1 Gold parallel Gandalf
1 Sketch Fabbri Ringwraith
1 Sketch Shum Hobbit.....it's either Merry or Pippen, I think could be Freddo dunno really

Overall very happy with the box, considering it was an impulse buy

Hi, I need help to know who draw these 2 sketches



Thanks in advance for those who will help me.

For those interested, the result of my case breakdown is on my website. If you have Gutierrez or Chandler sketches for trade, let me know what you are interested in on my website.

you didnt get two of the same artist, thats good. you got people who didnt do 1000+ sketchs only, thats good. Mckinney did a really good job on his sketchs, Thats good as well. good break IMO.
