Probably the ugliest auto card design I've ever seen. Honestly cannot understand how they thought that would look good. I was looking at the Tilda Swinton auto from this set, but I have no desire to own such an ugly looking card.

I have to agree on the prescription pad idea. Not great execution.

However - on another forum someone pulled a Tilda Swinton autographed 'Vishanti's Vestments' card, which is significantly more attractive, with the golden hues. I'm sure they'll be even more of a pain to collect odd wise, but (if I could afford to collect Doctor Strange) that's the card I'd be going for over the regular autographs in this set

There are no words for the sewer that is upper deck. What is worse is there is actually more room on the card for a bigger sticker!

As an autograph collector I would not give you 5 dollars for this.

That's a real shame, I guess he just signed his first name half off the sticker.

UD should not have released it on a card, maybe as a give away only, acknowledging that it is damaged. Good luck to the seller who thinks someone will pay that much. Yes, the second name is clear, but as an autograph card it would be drastically discounted in any evaluation.

That's horrible. UD autographs are also so overpriced when compared to other companies....Not even talking a-listers since they release so few signed cards.

For anyone still interested, Dr. Strange has indeed been released in e-pack today. It is considerably cheaper now, likely because of the fantastic way this product has sold, not. Big Grin

It will mean that the cards will start to appear in the usual places in quantity pretty soon.

They're cheaper... but hits are REALLY hard to hit. Also, you need 20 "digital" base cards to get a physical version. All that said, I wouldn't expect to see a ton of these flooding the market.

As a limited product, and I'm assuming that is still what UD says it was, flooding the market is an oxymoron. By quantity I simply meant that you would see it now as opposed to seeing relatively little of it before. Many of these e-pack buyers are flippers and they are looking only for the hits to sell. The base cards they would just as soon dump. I judge this by their posts in other forums. Some are collectors, but it seems like the art of dealing is the driving force with many of them.

You are correct, early indications are that Dr. Strange doesn't have many hits anywhere. Which means that the e-pack release will not go too well either. Once these flippers get disappointed with a few packs they drop it and move on. I don't know, its too soon too tell, but one way or another you are going to be able to find these cards with the broader release.

I just won an auction for an epacket delivered from Hong Kong. It was a Tilda Swinton Auto costume as the ancient one for $58.50 shipped. Is this a steal still like I thought it was? Lol. Only one sold was a few weeks ago and it sold for $240. -Joe

I would say it's a very nice price for the auto/relic. The Swinton plain autograph cards are going much lower than I would have expected based on the completed sales, but there don't seem to be many listed.

The only question I would have, because I don't do ePacks myself, is what do you mean by epacket delivered? Are you getting the physical card or do you have to redeem it in some way first?

I'm not quite sure. When I won the auction I saw it say epacket when I was paying for it. It's shipping from Hong Kong so it might take a while to reach me

Please let us know how this goes. I have seen a lot of these auctions and while the prices were cheap I am not at all familiar with epacks so did not want to take the risk it was either a scam or that there were a load of hoops to jump through to get the card.
