Got my second box tonight.
Once again, a full set, plus I was able to put together another set minus 2 cards using what I had left over from first box.

also found:
6 Evolution A cards, 2 of them repeats from yesterday's box
2 Evolution B cards, one a repeat (Doh!)
4 Stained Glass cards ,1,2,7,9 three of them repeats! (Doh! Doh!)

2 Sketches
Howard Shum "Arwen"
Amy Provost "Gollum - getting ready to chow down on a fish"

Overall, not as exciting as yesterdays box, partly because of the duplicate inserts, the Shum sketch is cute and the Provost sketch is a nice, so I'm keeping them. Now - to buy a few packs - it's hard to drive past the shop near my house knowing there could be some great cards in a loose pack there...

Hi all, I broke 2 cases the night before and finally had time to post. I must say, the most fun I have had ever opening boxes, probably due to the sketches I got. Clap

Overall I got 6 stained glass sets, 2 B sets and 1 card from 4 A sets. I also got the following sketches (Please let me know if I got any of the characters wrong!):

Frodo/Woodside; Eowyn/Shum; Based on other sketches a Eowyn/Hodgkins



Mouth of Sauron/Hodges; Elrond/Hodges; Orc/Gutierrez; Orc/Hodgkins



Proudfoot/Martinez; Deagol/Martinez; Orc/Frampton; Uruk-Hai/Frampton



Orc/Molinelli; Theodin/O'Neill; Gondor Warrior/Vecchia; Rohan Warrior/Vecchia



Cave Troll/Teranishi; Orc?/Benjamin; Boromir/Rabbitte; Aragorn/Erwert



Gondor Warrior/Fabbri; Gimli/Wilkinson; Wormtongue/Mitchell; Orc/Parsons



And finally... Legolas/Staggs; Pippin/Pronovost; Gollum/Pronovost; Gollum/Cummens; Eowyn/Sohn

I got my two boxes and after pulling my first sketch which looks like a pile of rocks, still unsure what it is I was starting to really wonder about my choice in purchases. However the cards are beautiful. My daughter really loved breaking the packs with me and putting the set and inserts together. It is a really nice set.

Here is what I got.
Box 1.
One base set about 14 short of a second
6 A level chase
2 B level chase
4 Stained glass inserts
These two sketches



Then, in one of the last few packs I hit this beautiful Kayanan sketch! It is truly awesome!!



THREE SKETCHES IN ONE BOX! Made up for that terrible sketch of who knows what?! That’s for sure.


Box 2.
One base set about 14 short of a second
6 A level chase all different than box 1
2 B level chase all different than box 1
4 Stained glass all duplicates of box 1

Then we pulled the decent Golem sketch, it is basic, but it’s a sketch. Not bad, then came the absolutely awesome Gimli sketch!



WOO HOO!!! I never get good boxes! We had a lot of fun opening these boxes and got some really nice cards!

P.S. CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHO IS THE ARTIST WHO SIGNED IN GOLD? AND WHO IS THE ARTIST (IF WE CAN CALL THEM ARTIST THAT DREW MY ROCK?) THANKS!

I am on cloud nine!! When I started looking into Kayanan's other sketches I am really blown away! His stuff is really great. Then the Cat Staggs Gimli, Wow! He is one of our favorites, and it is such a great sketch.

That color Pippin is fantastic! I like the gollum with the fish too, but the Pippin is fantastic!

I have to give Topps a D- on the Hobby release.


Okay, I overreacted. The majority of the Sketches are nice. But a few do make me scratch my head. I am upping my previous Grade to a B+ ;-)

I think Hodgkins signed several in gold.
Tom Hodges (originally thought Gutierrez) drew the orc (Uruk-Hai helmet).

Arty Ewok - is it Pronovost or Provost - which is the way the cards are signed.
I pulled one of your "Gollum with fish", much like the one shown above, but the picture is flipped, and Gollum looks like he's going to take a bite...

Looks like Howard Shum numbered his sketches, i see the numbers in the top right side, I have 48.

The variety and quality of these sketches is really wild, I'm hoping to pick up packs later today. Great pulls, everyone!
