Thanks for the offer Rich. I might just have to take you up on it. I really like that card as well. In fact this case gave me four artists I really wanted i.e. Molinelli, Staggs, Sohn and Kayanan.


WOW now thats a case! Anytime your ready feel free to e-amil.

I finally found a case. . . wasn't exactly in my budget, but bought it anyway. . .


I LOVE the Gandalfs you showed, especially the Mitchell! Also love the Legolas by Cummens. It's too bad you had some artist duplication in the case. I wish I could have afforded to buy more than one case myself!

OK, so i hadn't busted a single box since Buffy WOS, in fact sold everything off. I broke down and got a box of these for Open that Box day after seeing everyones breakdowns. Gotta say busting a box really gave me that card itch back so i hope i don't cave in too often.

Anyway here is my breakdown, hopefully someone can help me with who the sketches are of, i'm a little rusty on my LOTR characters.

Stained Glass 2-3-6-7
Evolution A 5-6-7-8-9-10
Evolution B 5-6

Sketches
Duron
Rood

The sketches look like an Uru-kai (by Duron) and Arwen (by Rood). Good job!

Nice pulls. Here is what is from I believe THE LAST 3 packs of Evolution to be found in my town.I will call this the "pack" breakdown.

Cost of three packs plus tax = $6.42 exact change.

Pulling a sketch card in the first pack = Priceless.

Hi all, I did as suggested by a few of you on here and sent in the boxtop and the UPC code to Topps Customer Service address (Special thanks to Aelfwine and SlackJawedYokel for their assistance!) and was very pleasantly surprised to receive a sketch card from Topps. I am glad that the company helped me out as they didn't have to. The sketch is by Frampton and looks, to me at least, like one of the Wild Men. If anyone else has an opinion about what it could be, please let me know. Here is a scan of it:

Andrew - Glad Topps C.S. was able to help you out.

The character is actually an Easterling and not a Wild man.

Cheers - Peter

Both sketches are fantastic! The Duron is definitely an uruk-hai and the Rood is a gorgeous Arwen...

thanks for the info, was lost on what the Duron was. My initial thought was that the Rood was an Arwen but then i talked myself out of it and thought it was someone else.

That is a GREAT sketch by Otis! I've got mostly profile sketches by him...

Hello. I received my four boxes today. I only pulled a total of six sketches in the fours boxes. 1 was a super star card.

For those who know/remember my earlier pulls were I said I was cursed, I have been similarly cursed with this one card.

I will post all soon. Cheers.

Is this curse part of the same curse, one part of another 3 part curse, or part of a 2 part curse?
I wish I had half your "cursed" luck Big Grin
