Interesting that they sent you a Kree-Skrull sketch as a Captain America replacement!

I'm just getting started with Non-Sport so to kick start my collection of Iron Man and Captain America, I decided to bust 3 cases.

I just finished busting it them yesterday and it was soooooo much fun!! I was blown away by how many great hits came out despite the high number of manufactured patch cards I pulled. Here is the breakdown:

26 Sketch Cards(shorted 4 according to UD's numbers)
4 Printing Plates 1/1
3 Autographs, but all of the same guy, Neal McDonough(but I'm quite happy with it)
8 Complete Manufactured Patch Sets(1-6)

Costume Cards(did pretty good with these despite the high number of Zolas):
3 x M-3 Peggy Carter(Brown, Brown, Red)
2 x M-5 Howard Stark
1 x M-6 Red Skull
5 x M-7 Dr. Zola
1 x M-11 Jacques Dernier
2 x M-12 Steve Rogers(white, white + seam)
3 x M-13 Captain America (blue/Silver, blue/silver, white + seam)


And now for the sketches. This is the first time I've ever busted any Captain America, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but man was I happy by the end. Let me know what you think.











































All nice sketches in their own right, but the following are my "wow" pulls:



Zane Donnellan


Zane Donnellan


Frank Kadar


Frank Kadar






I couldn't believe it when I pulled this one, I just sat there stunned...




Charles Hall!!!!!!!



And to make it even better, my first ever.....





Katie Cook!!!!!





And to make it that much sweeter.....



A second Katie Cook!!! I couldn't believe it, I had the pleasure of meeting her at the Calgary Comic Expo this last weekend and she was sooo sweet and fun. I went back to her booth 4 times with my wife because I wanted to get more commissions done. She even did ones of our cat and dog!!




Most of these are staying with me, the spare costume cards are on Ebay as are the patch sets.



Here are pics of the other hits:
I didn't even realize these could be pulled from Cap.
Avengers Volume 1 #4 Comic Panel /78




1/1 Printing Plates:











Howard Stark



Jacques Dernier



Steve Rogers


Captain America M-13



Peggy Carter



Red Skull



Zolamania, there are supposed to be 5 but I forgot to add the last one pulled



Neal McDonough Autographs

I love this stuff! Ordered 6 sealed cases and 3 looses boxes and I finished busting them all at 1:30 am this morning. It was ridiculously fun and I hit some AMAZING sketches and lots of great memorabilia hits. Here's a sample of my favorites:

I was able to build 2 complete Autograph sets(4)
, here's a pic of one:




Almost a complete set of costume cards with several variants, just missing the Uber rare M-10 and came out with several duplicates.


Ryan Kincaid


Jason Keith Philips x 2




Lawrence Reynolds


Creepy Sarah Wilkinson


SP Artist Joyce Chin /28


Roy Cover x 2

Newly identified as Roy Cover, thanks Roy!


Frank Kadar




Other totals: 6 printing plates, 2 comic cut panels, 8 autographs, 20 Insignia patch sets and a stack of other sketches, most of which I'm very happy with. It was the most fun I've ever had in this hobby, sport and non-sport.

Plates:






Sequential Comic Cut Panels:





Insignia Patch Sets:


And all the other sketches:















And now for the top 6


Opening a pack and seeing 4 sketches in it is AWESOME!

Lawrence Reynolds 4 piece puzzle




What's better than 1 4 piece puzzle?



Another one!!

Hanie Mohd 4 piece puzzle




And how about a 3 piece...first one I've seen pulled, a Hanie Mohd 3 piece puzzle, Mucha-esque style!




Next up, another Super Short Print Artist, I now own 3 of the 22 sketches she did....




Katie Cook!



Goes great with it's siblings:




Next up is a sketch that literally made me gasp:
Charles Hall. The picture does not do this thing justice.


Which now gives me this pair:




But there's still one sketch that I will probably never top...



I badly wanted to pull one by this artist but knew my odds were definitely not good...



Are you thinking what I'm thinking?



Let's find out.



Melike Acar, enough said.




Most of the sketches are staying in my pc, I have several duplicates and characters I don't wish to keep that I will be listing on Ebay along with the other hits. I already have prearranged buyers for some of my non-pc stuff.

Thanks for taking a look and I hope you enjoyed the show!

Hi Stephane,
Thanks for the comment, unfortunately though the Comic panels have already been moved.

Thanks,
Brian.

I got three more boxes today:

Captain America Hobby Box #1


Captain America Hobby Box #2


Captain America Hobby Box #3


Three pretty good breaks- another auto pull and a costume pulls also. The only problem is that I have both of them all ready, so they are available as well if anyone is interested- I'd be interested in trading for any other CA costume or the Gregg Thor auto

Retail boxes seem cheap and plentiful so I picked one up!

60 singles (59 of a first base set and a duplicate of #1)
Insignia patch: I-2
Comic Covers: C2, C3, C4, C5, C6, C7, C8, C10
Poster Series: P1(x2), P2, P4, P5, P6, P9, P10


As far as the insignia cards go, at 1:96 with 16 packs a box I’m happy with my pull! Big Grin Sure is a thick card though.
