Thanks! I think it's actually about the nicest sketch I've ever pulled from a pack.

Thanks! It looks even nicer in person as there are a lot of subtleties in the colors that got kind of washed out in the scan.

Bought two packs of Women of Marvel today and pulled an unsigned sketch of Rogue- one of the four characters I had wanted to pull- I found the picture on the Rittenhouse Archives site and it is a Jim Kyle! Smile

I'm definitely pleased.

Val.. I'm so jealous!!! Rogue was one of the characters I was hoping to get when I ordered my two boxes.

I was hoping to get Rogue, Psylocke, Elektra, Ms. Marvel or Jean Grey/Dark Phoenix.

Instead I pulled 'Shanna' and I think 'Jubilee'. They are very well done but they're just not the ones I wanted.

Congrats Val! Don....not so much. At least the sketch is worth the investment (of the 1 pack anyway) Roll Eyes

On my way to see Iron Man I visited my local shop and picked up a couple of boxes of WOM (breakdowns posted in the WOM breakdown thread) but on a whim I grabbed a couple of packs of SP Authentic hockey (ok, not non-sports but I did get those packs only because I was there buying non-sports Wink). Anyone here who happens to collect hockey will know just how lucky a pull this is, an Alexander Ovechkin Rookie Review autograph patch card 072/100 (autograph is on card, not a sticker).
