I took the plunge and decided to purchase three cases as well...with the price being what it is at it is just to good to pass up. I will post a full breakdown soon, but can anyone answer me if the Samuel L. Jackson autograph redemption is any different on the front than the normal autograph redemption? I have been looking for the same image so far and then I got to thinking that maybe it was different...

If I recall correctly, the auto redemption cards look exactly the same except for the back.

You are indeed correct, only the backs are different.

Case 3 Breakdown:
There were the usual number of costumes in this case (7), a nice mix including the dual costume card and no repeats as usual. Autograph wise, the were 6 but none of Paulson or Paz Vega (there were 2 of Dan Lauria and Stana Katic).

There was something unusual about this case. Three the boxes had 3 hits, while three others had only 1 hit. It still balanced out, but I think that may explain why the duplicate autographs. This case also had 2 boxes that featured a true rarity from Inkworks: miscut cards. Just a little stack from each of the 2 boxes, and no, I won't be returning them.

CASE 4:
Again with the 7 costumes, all different, but for the only time in all 4 cases there was no dual costume card. There were 5 of the 6 regular autographs (no Paz Vega). I have just sent these in so I've not received them yet. I have received the autographs from the first 3 cases. Inkworks remains reliable as ever in this regard and I'm sure they are sending out an awful lot of these this month.

Final summary: with 28 costume cards in 4 cases, I could have made two 11 card sets and had 6 doubles left. I didn't get any of PW5 though, so I'm one card short of each set and I have 8 doubles (actually 7 toward a third set with just 1 quadruple), so not too shabby.

Sketch wise, I found 30 in four cases (plus 1 in a single box), so I could've had a set with 6 extra if I was extremely lucky. Well, while not that lucky, I am pretty close to a sketch set with 20 of the 24 total artists. I was up to 19 different after the 3rd case, so I actually could've completed the set with the 4th case, but I only found 1 of the last 5 sketch artists I needed in that last case. Even so, I'm glad one of my duplicates in that 4th case was a Sean Pence. The Sand Saref card from Sean in the 3rd case is one of my absolutes favorites of all of the cards he did for the set, and that's saying something given his amazing work, still displayed on the Inkworks website.

I guess I have about 80 or so of the base sets and plenty of the three "foil" chase sets and four of the single case toppers.

It is bitterweet to have this collection. I could never have afforded to purchase this many of these cards at the original price although I did buy a box when this set first came out. I had planned to buy more, even before Inkworks ceased operations and yet I would prefer to have Inkworks still in business even if it meant I wouldn't have all of these great cards.

HI Nick
I'll post what I've got on your "trade" thread so as to not clog up this one with non-breakdowns. Thanks!

I opened 3 more boxes.

Auto redemption card
Stana Katic as Morgenstern.

Costume cards
PW4 - Eva Mendes (Sand Serif) wetsuit
PW8 - Samuel L. Jackson (The Octopus) shirt
PW9 - Scarlett Johansson (Silken Floss) robe


The Octopus by Randy Martinez.
This was slightly warped. I think there's a bit
of watercolour in it and that's what's warped it.
