Congratulations AJJ Thumb Up

My box didn't arrive today so it looks I'll have to wait to next week unless a resolution is reached earlier on these post strikes!

Typically this set was released on time, but I'll still have to wait at least an extra week for it! Roll Eyes

One of my three boxes has arrived from the USA.

Box 8668 contained the following

Uko Smith sketch of Martian Manhunter
4 gold 12,15,23,35
Alex Ross artwork AR2
First Title covers FC1, FC2
Legendary Heroes L1
Base Set One full set

This is a cracking set. Probably the best base set ever.

It doesn't really matter what sketch you get as this set is awesome!

Looking forward to the next boxes arriving. Will have to wait at least one week. We have yet another postal strike.

I finally finished cracking my first RA case and let me say a much better experience that cracking the Topps SW 30th case.
Loved the base set but did anyone else note that for #35 the Zatana classic figure was in black instead of silver like the rest of the base set? I did notice that she separated the heroes and villains so maybe that was why; but anyway the separation helped me since there were some characters I wouldn’t have known were good or bad. I was disappointed Artemis did not get a base card since I like the character and especially her artwork by Benes (for her mini-series). I enjoyed the Alex Ross cards since his art is just cool to look at and the lenticular cards were impressive as well. The first covers set were a good nod to comic history.
Anyway here's my breakdown.
Box 6190 - base set; gold: 36, 3, 18, 8; FC: 1, 3; AR1; L2; sketch Hawkgirl by Sobol

Box 3187 - base set; gold: 23, 43, 12, 35; FC: 3, 8; AR7; L3; sketch: Black Adam by Hillsman

Box 192 – base set; gold: 7, 45,30,40; FC: 4,6; AR2; L5; sketch Mr. Freeze by Tyler Richlen

Box 4190 – base set; gold: 47, 38, 44, 31; FC: 4, 7; AR:3; sketch Raven by Ted Rechlin

Box 9809 – base set; gold: 2, 46, 1, 17; FC 1, 7; AR9; sketch Poison Ivy by Renae DeLiz 

Box 2188 – base set; gold: 9, 32, 27, 14; FC: 2, 9; Ar6; sketch Hawkman by Andy Price

Box 7186 – base set; gold: 41, 13, 16, 24; FC 8, 5; AR8; sketch Raven in white by Tony Perna

Box 5193 – base set; gold: 26, 15, 49, 10; FC: 5, 2; AR4; sketch Martian Manhunter by ???

Box 8188 – base set; gold: 11, 39, 50, 29; FC: 2, 9; AR6; L6; sketch Mr. Plastic by Jeff Welborn

Box 1192 – base set; gold: 33, 21, 5, 28; FC: 9, 6; AR5; L4; sketch Hourman by Dan Day

Box 7185 – base set; gold: 48, 22, 6, 34; FC: 3, 1; AR1; sketch Martian Manhunter by ??

Box 8187 – base set; gold: 4, 25, 20, 37; FC: 8, 5; AR8; L1; sketch Darkseid by RAM

Summary: more than 12 base sets, 2 set of FC plus 6 singles, 1 set Alex Ross plus 3 singles, 1 set Legendary Heroes, 48 gold cards (no doubles and short 19, 42 to complete the base set) and 12 nice sketch cards; but how ironic to get two Martian Manhunter sketches with no artist signature. I was of course disappointed not to get a Catwoman, Wonder Woman or Batman sketch but my pulled sketches are lovely and the Poison Ivy sketch was exactly the type of sketch card I hoped to get. Plus I really like the Hawkman by Price.
Lmk if I misidentified any characters or artists. I figure I was lucky to get no doubles on the lenticular (scan below) and the Poison Ivy was my favourite sketch card pull!

Here's what I pulled from 1 case and 2 extra boxes. I was hoping for Batman and Joker sketches... No luck on Bats but did pull a few Jokers... And plenty of DC's finest ladies too!

Cool! I was wondering where that Joker/Original Batgirl ended up. I did more Joker and Batman cards than anything else.

Great work, Mark! That one is probably my favorite of the bunch... I have to say, I'm really impressed with the overall quality of your sketches considering you did 600!

Can anyone say they dont understand why this product sold at at RA?

The base cards look like inserts on their own. This is easily one of the best sets this year. Id say its between this set and Heroes for set of the year. Lets see how Topps does.

My box-
Gold-
31-Superman
38-Captain Cold
44-Mr Freeze
47-The Riddler

First Title Covers-
FC1-Superman
FC7-Aquaman

DC Gallery-
AR7


Andy Price Doctor Fate-

Zenn,

Thanks! I actually did 702 cards total counting the incentive cards, which they are 4 times the size of the little ones. I can't wait to work on another set like this, so many things I learned from this one.

Picked up 1 sealed box and 10 loose packs at my local store. No sketch from the loose packs but I did get a lenticular (L5) and Alex Ross insert (AR7).
My sealed box did have a sketch, it's ok I guess... Luv You Drool Smokin'

Covers: The Flash and Aquaman

Lenticular: Shazam

Alex Ross card

I got my (probably) last two boxes today!

Box #2595
Gold Parallel: 19,29, 42,50
FC 6,9
AR6 (AGAIN Frown)
Darren Auck Hawkman/Superman fight sketch

Box #8493
Gold Parallel: 3,8,18,36
FC 4,7
AR2
Tom Nguyen Supergirl sketch

Overall, I am a little sad to get so many duplicate First Covers and Alex Ross cards from my boxes, and still no lenticular cards from 5 boxes. However, the sketches are pretty awesome, so overall I would say that I am about even on this set...
