My order arrived today and I must say this is a really beautiful product. The 50 card base set comes in a very attractive tin. If you thought the Vampirella base set was nice, wait till you get you sweaty little hands on these babies. Each boxed set comes with a checklist, a sketch card,the base set, and an oversized order card, which doesn't fit well in the box and tends to get dinged up. Every other box contains a random insert card. As I've already said the base set is to die for. The card backs contain some info on Bettie Page, as well as the name of the artist who did that base card.
Here are my pulls from 30 boxed sets:
28 Regular Sketch Cards
02 Double Sided Sketch Cards
03 Artist Signature Cards
02 Promo Set Redemption Cards Elephant
01 Tribute Card
01 Embossed Card
01 Clear Card
03 F1 Foil Cards
02 F2 Foil Cards

I know you really don't want to read anymore, but you'd rather see the goods so here goes.

Trev Murphy, Tim Shay, Mark McHaley
Luke Ellison, Scott Barnett, Sean Pence
Kristin Allen, Elaine Perna, Bob Stevlic

Tony Fleecs, Russ Platt, Rich Mollinelli
Max, Potratz & Hai, Remy "Eisu" Mokhtar
Jomar Bulda, Jose Carlo Mendoza, Dennis Budd


Nicholas Valente, DS Shane McCormack, DS Don Pedicini Jr.
Jack Redd, Jessica Hickman, Nicholas Valente
Brian Smith, Manny Mederos, Nick Neocleous

Jose Jaro, Shane McCormack, Mark McHaley

The other inserts


Again, I love this product as the quality is top-notch. I'm not sure how this will do on the market, as it's for mature audiences, which gives you a smaller pool of buyers, and it's all Betty Page, so while the Vampirella set had many other characters, this one is Betty Page and Betty Page alone.

Wow, you guys have some great cards. I especially like the Russ Platt and the Jack Redd mermaid sketches.
Those inserts are great too!
I opened one tin so far (from Ed at SciFi Cards) and all I got was this crummy Charles Hall sketch card and this Ryan M. Kincaid autograph card:

I had to edit this and say I am OF COURSE just kidding with the 'crummy' remark!

You did very well with those three sketches Thumb Up .Billy did say elswhere that they had a shortfall in the number of sketches.Wonder if thats why the incentive sketch was in the one box.Hope my five boxes produce as good a result.

Just opened my five tins.In addition to the sketches I got both foil cards and the embossed card.

One sketch cannot be posted as the artist forgot to put any clothes on Bettie Big Grin .Can't decipher the signature but the initials look like M M.

The first two sketches are by Jerry Gatlord and Russ Platt but I can't read the signatures on the back of the other two.All help in identification appreciated.

Curiosity over this set got the better of me, so I did a trade with a local dealer I know that netted me 8 boxes. In addition to the Wikowski auto card, I also pulled two F1 Foil Cards and a C1 Clear Card as inserts. I've edited a couple of the images so I can post them.

Uko Smith (6), Potratz and Hai (20), Grant Gould (6)
Richard Pace (10), Jeremy Treece (36), Kenneth Branch (6)
Francois Chartier (only double-sided sketch), Scott Rorie (10)

Kevin, let me know if you're willing to give up that Bunny Bettie sketchcard. I'd e-mail you but there is no e-mail address in your profile. If you're not interested - I don't blame you!
