1st case...

Case contains 12 packs, 4 each of A, B & C
Each pack contains 9 base cards, 1 glossy
finish parallel card, and at least 1 chase
card and at least 1 premium insert.

Chase cards include a 9-card puzzle set,
3 different mini chase cards, a Conan Doyle
photograph card and a Sherlock Holmes and
Victorian Crime expansion card #24.

Premiums include Sketch cards, Strand Magazine
cards like the last Sherlock had, Victorian
Artefact cards, Penny Black and Penny Red
postage stamp cards, a redemption card for
a Sherlock Holmes poster and cut signature cards.

Below are the highlights of my case:


2 of my 3 Strand text cuts and 1 die-cut cover piece
Victorian Crime #24, Conan Doyle Photo card, Poster redemption card

Case Topper card, 3-card mini chase set



Kris Justice, Ted Woods, Paulina Vassileva
Matt Erkhart, Scott Fellowes, Dan Gorman

1 1/2d stamp, halfpenny stamp, Perforated Penny Red stamp #26/65

I've been waiting for quite a while for this one and I'm very happy with
everything. I have another case on the way and will post it later in the week.

Greg

2nd Case

This one broke similar to the first...
It contained the 9 card puzzle,
12 different glossy parallels,
a Victorian Crime expansion #24,
Conan Doyle photo card,
Mini Chase 3 card set,
a poster and post card redemption cards,
halfpenny stamp Victorian Artefact card,
5 Strand Magazine cards --3 text cuts,
1 cover die-cut and 1 foldout Thumb Up
6 sketch cards...one of which is a little
different. It is covered with text cutouts
like the Strand cards have and there is a
silhouette of Holmes drawn overtop. There
is no artist name on the back but it is
hand-numbered 42/75...pretty neat really.


Eric Van Elslande, Brian Typhair, Barry Linde
Patrick Hamill, Scott Fellowes, ??????
Strand fold-out


I also picked up an extra 3 packs and here's the sketch I got:
I could use some help with the artist...

Hi Greg! I am very pleased for you. Those pulls are very cool and the pull out is hands down the coolest I've seen! The sketch you highlighted rocks and everything else is the icing on top well done my friend!

I have been waiting to buy any trading cards until I could find a set I knew I would greatly enjoy and I knew The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes would be this set. I received by box on Christmas Eve and it truly was a wonderful surprise. Highlights of my set include a Scott Houseman Sherlock Holmes Sketch, a Gas light post card bill from 1899 redemption, a full set of 27 base cards, all sorts of promos, and a most enjoyable time of reading all the backs of the cards

Scott, I feel incredibly blessed to own the sketch you did for the memoirs set...I always wanted to own one of your Sherlock sketches and never thought I would. Did you do very many for this set? As a Sherlock fan I couldn't ask for anything better than what Cult-Stuff has produced. So happy. Bouncey

I tried to post better pictures of what I received in my box. While everything was truly cool, the 1899 Gaslight Postcard, Sketches, and paragraph from "The Adventure of The Cardboard box" are some of my favorites. Drool The base cards are wonderful and for any true fan of Sherlock Holmes this set is perfect. Thanks Cult-Stuff! I hope my pictures show some of the detail better on the Sketches and the post card...they truly rock!
