Man, there's some awesome sketches being pulled by everyone.

The third one appears to be The Falcon, but not too sure since it's hard to see. But it does look like feathers by his arms.

Here are the pulls from 2 cases.

If upper deck had an acurate list of all artists, with just one of their sketches it would help a TON!!! So if anyone can tell me if I got anything good, that would help a ton Smile I know a few are good, but not sure of some.







No, the postman in the FF comics was Willie Lumpkin who was played by Stan Lee in the movie.


Who is the artist on that sketch card as I've just pulled a Lockjaw sketch by the same artist?

Now that you mention it it does remind me of those characters, think I've got a few comics with them in to compare. Cheers.

Actually it's Ares, god of war! Amazing luck I spotted some pictures of him and his armour matches.

Got my 2 boxes today, but have only opened one since the other is a christmas-gift, so it`ll have to wait Smile



I have no idea who the artist is or who the sketch is supposed to be... Any input is much appreciated Smile

Deathstorm your last sketch is ARES:GOD OF WAR. He had his own mini series in 2006 and is currently in MIGHTY AVENGERS.

Hyperion. I have never seen a pilgram in marvel comics unless they are pulling from their new Diablo line and it is a character from RED Prophet.

I opened one of my two boxes, the second I can open on Christmas.
My first 6 packs had all 6 of the gold foil cards. In pack 7 I pulled a Tom Palmer Ink sketch headshot of Cyclops of the X-men. It is really nice.

Question. There are no Palmers on Ebay and I have seen none pulled on Cardtalk. Has anyone else seen a Palmer on any other website? He has worked for Marvel for over 4 decades, so I am really proud/excited to pull this sketch.

Once I get my scanner on track again I will post the image.

Deathstorm / Barobehere: Good job. Smile Haven't read Ares or any Avengers in a loooong time.

Hyperion: By the western look, I'm guessing he may be the Gunslinger from the Stephen King's Dark Tower series. As far as artist, I'm leaning towards Bo Hampton.

Could be Solomon Kane. I think he appeared in one of the black&white mags and possibly an issue of Marvel Premiere.

Finally got proper scans . When I went to scan them my local shop had a new box so I grabbed another 12 packs and got a Grant Gould Colossus(I think) sketch. So my grand total for 5 sealed boxes and 21 loose packs are the following 7 sketches. I really do like that Paz Spider-Man, probably the only 1 of the 7 I will be keeping.

Hi Everyone Smile
I wanted to mention that I've seen a lot of the pencil sketch cards with the apparent "BH" signature attributed to Bo Hampton. (Most recently, the Solomon Kane Sketch belonging to member: Hyperion). After some conjecture, and with the posting of all the artists numbers, it now seems they are his after all.
Member Incarnadine mentioned that the cards signed BH07 are Brian Hagan, but I think that's the ones with the "BH07" in block letters in black marker.
The ones in which the letters "BH07" are signed in pencil are Hampton's who it turns out drew 197 for the set. Simple but effective sketches in the true sense of the word, and really it's just great to get even the autograph of such a fine artist, who likely has many demands on his time.
I hope to figure out how to post the pictures of the 14 sketches I've got already, including a Cap by "BH" (Hampton).
I've also got a nice Kieron Dwyer Cap (he signed KD by the way, since I've not seen any others from his 20 yet) and an excellent grey tone Hulk from David Williams who only did 10 for the set.
Thanks to NSU for this great forum, and to the members whose imformative and good natured posts make collecting cards an even greater delight.

Yeah, you're right. I just looked at a card that Bo Hampton signed for me a con and he signed his full name so I'm sure he did his sketches that way also. Strange how none of his have surfaced yet, or at least I haven't seen any.

Marvel Masterpiece Breakdown
Box 2011761

Adams color – 1, 3
Struzan color - 1
Spiderman -2(2), 3(2), 5, 8(3)
Spiderman foil- 1, 4
X-men -1(2), 2,4,7(2),8,9

foil with Upper Deck logo - 6
Box 2011762
sketch cards- ? by Brent Engstrom






Ross b & w box loader - 3
Ross color – 1, 3
Adams color –2(2)
Struzan color - 0
Spiderman -1(3),2, 3,6,7(2),9
Spiderman foil- 2
X-men -2,3,6,7,8(2),9
X-Men foil -2,5,6
subcasts – 36 total
foil with fleer logo – 30
foil with Upper Deck logo - 6


Two boxes gave me at least 2 base sets, 2 sketches, complete set of color Art Adams and Alex Ross triptychs, 1 subcasts set, only got 1 Drew Struzan triptych card, both the X-men and Spiderman non-foil sets need 1 card to complete them but I can use a foil card to complete the sets.
What did I think of this release? Well it certainly lacks the cohesion present in the other Marvel Masterpiece sets. I definitely got the impression the images were just thrown together and I can’t tell you how much it annoyed me to discover the title card is so disjointed. I mean what gives that we get such an obviously cut up image – grr – let’s just throw in part of Wolvie’s arm! Plus I was not a big fan of the art used for my two favorite characters – Wolvie and Storm. Over the years there have been some fantastic images of those two (think Julie Bell, Jim Lee, Mark Silvestri, and Greg Land) and so I found the two chosen images to be lacking. There was nothing special about the Spiderman or X-men 9 card sets as so many people said they could have been base cards – though I loved the Storm. The Ross triptych was nice but I thought the Adams lost some detail at that size. I was glad to get sketch card artists I know work in sketch cards and while I think they are nicely done I don’t like either character; in fact I have no idea who Engstrom drew. The uneven quality of sketches and low number of some artists put me off buying more boxes of this product. I’m glad I had a look at this product but I don’t believe it lived up to its potential. I ‘m sorry to hear that UD already has plans to do another one since I think it will be rushed just to make money and not be the highlight for fantastic art that the early Marvel Masterpieces produced.

I recently pulled a 1/1 Dr. strange, I recognize the sig and artwork, but yet I can't figure out who did this. Any help would be great. There looks to be KNG on the bottm and a D right above that.(sig is at top of card)
