Let's try this Big Grin

Oh My! You pulled some FANTASTIC sketches! Love the Mitchell and the Staggs, and the Kayanan and the Molinelli!
Can't tell who did the Eomer sketch in the first one either.
Nice variety there!


I can't see much of anything with the faint Frodo sketch, but that cave troll appears to be a Hernandez (GH).

*sigh* I am SO SO SO sorry... was trying to reply with quote and hit the wrong button *sigh*

I deserve a few of these Twak Twak Twak

The warrior sketch is by Dan Parsons. Is that Eomer? I need to watch the movies again to figure out some of the characters. Smile No worries about the post. I am so new to the boards here, that I really wasn't even sure that I was doing the images right. It seems to have worked pretty well though.

Sure is - riding into battle (pretty sure it's into the Battle of Pelennor Fields).

Well, actually, they didn't show up, that's why I was (I thought) replying with quote so I could fix the image tags and see the pictures.

Again, sorry sorry sorry!

Not everyone. Shake Head I cracked 1 case and a few loose packs but despite 47 different artists I somehow managed to get 4 duplicate artists (2 Hodges, 2 Teranishi, 2 Norton and 2 Hodgkins).

Here's my 5 1/2 box break down. Box prices are $45 - $54 around here now. I paid $42 2 weeks ago. I was told from the dealer I bought these from, that Topps is sold out now.

2 of the 5 boxes only had one sketch card.

you know, i just realized something. Some artists who will remain nameless, signed their cards in ink when they did them in very loose light quick pencil. THink that was deliberate? like, they knew people would want them to turn magically into blanks?

The same certain artist/s who were accused of churning out tons of trash for other releases. I guess they wanted to make sure no one else got to draw on their 1006 poorly sketched cards. I refuse to give any of my money to upgrade to a perfectly capable artist who just didn't try the first time around.

Congrtats to all the great sketch cards everybody is getting ClapSome real nice pulls!
Me and my son pulled these marvelous Confusedcards last night Frown

We also did not get a sketch card from this box!
Would anybody have any information about them? All the years that we have collected Topps cards, we have never found anything close to this from our packs. I think that they are just blanks without the final front and back, but are they rare? We would like to send them to Topps to see if the could replace them for us as we did not get a single sketch card from this box! This is the second box that we did not get a single sketch card from. Is this happening to anybody? Thanks for any Information Smile

Another case, another Kayanan Smile I think this is one of my favorite ones, it is so bright!!! Plus I had one pack in a box that had 16 cards in it (13 of which were level B cards, crazy....13 sketches would have been cooler though)
