There are certain products, GoT being one of them, which include sketches at such minimal numbers that to advertise them as part of the mix is almost disingenuous. To be sure they are in there, but as a card collector don't expect to find one.
With GoT, the sketch restrictions still prohibit character portrayals, so that somewhat lessens the impact for me. I love the sketches of dragons and even the White Walkers, which are to me more or less characters. However the scenic views, objects/weapons and rooms, although they may be well done, just don't interest me as much as a character likenesses.
Because the sketches are so limited they have pretty high prices when they do show up. Imagine if the artists could use actor likenesses and were paid to do enough of them to give you a chance at a pull!
