Chicagoland Star Wars Variant Cover sales at show

Hello:

Below is the cover of the Star Wars variant that will be on sale at this coming weekend's Chicagoland Entertainment Collectors Expo. The original artwork is by Mark McHaley and was done specifically for our cover. Mark told me this was his most complex Star Wars piece yet! Inside each copy is the very first Topps Star Wars costume card featuring Ework for supplies by Prop Store (propstore.com). The cards came out super....wait until you see them. Big Grin

We wanted to let everyone know our sales policies for this issue at the show. The issue is limited to just 300 copies and the copies that were available for sale by mail went really fast so we expect these to sell briskly at the show as well. We would like as many people to be able to purchase a copy as possible and so because of that, we will have a few rules in effect:

- Sales limited to one copy per customer (for the entirety of the show)

- Copies will be available for sale at the Non-Sport Update tables on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. There will be no sales on Thursday. We've allocated copies for each day so that we'll have them available all three days.

- Those who purchased copies previously via the NSU website (either for pick-up at the show or mail) may not purchase another copy at the Chicagoland show. Sorry.

- Please present driver’s license or other valid form of ID when purchasing copy (or picking up previously purchased copy)

Copies will be on sale Friay at 4:00 PM. I am not certain what time we'll sell copies on Saturday and Sunday but it will most likely be between 10 AM and 11 AM.

Again, we are doing this to try and keep things fair and so that as many people as possible may purchase copies. There may be additional rules or changes so be sure to see us at the show and be sure to see us for the Saturday and Sunday on-sale times too. Thank you for your understanding.

We hope to see lots of NSU Card Talk members at the show!!

Glad these rules were set up - that way the most possible collectors can get a copy.
Mark did a great job on the cover - it looks much different from the sepia mock-ups we had seen.

The card itself is still a mystery as to what it looks like, and that's good! Bet it's beautiful!

Harris,

Thank you for the pic of the cover. It looks great and love the artwork of Mark McHaley. Now I can't wait to see what the Ewok Costume card looks like. Since I was not able to go to the show I kind of hesitated about ordering a copy. Now I am glad I did order a copy for my collection.

I'm glad that I reserved my 5 copies of this issue before these rules were put into place.

NO, NOT REALLY. Wink

Like everyone else, I, and I assume all other NSU-affiliated personnel, had to pre-order like everyone else and pay the same price as everyone else. Harris, really is trying to make this as fair as possible but no matter what, you can't please everyone when supplies are limited. This issue is definitly going to be hot and if there were 5x the number of copies, it would probably still sell out. I wish everyone who did not pre-order, the best of luck next weekend and to all Chicagoland attendees, happy hunting.
