Some other artists have posted their cards online, so I figured I'd start a thread here as well! Cult Stuff will be releasing this set, I did 31 total cards. Here's a sampling of my cards:



I focused on the Basil Rathbone/Nigel Bruce characterizations as they were my favorites growing up.

Hopefully other artists will drop in and share some of their artwork!

Very nice likenesses.

Rathbone was always my favorite Holmes too. Bruce played Watson as comic relief and a bit of a fool. I'm glad they changed that character in later versions.

But your sketches are excellent. Thumb Up

Shipping in January:


This is our first release of a busy 2013 and will be shipping in January. This is one of our most anticipated products of the last 12 months, and the one we have had the most questions and information requests about. The set looks fantastic and it’s full of new art from some top creators. The set will cover the first 12 short stories and it will act as a companion to the book. For this release we decided to change things around a little, and we are reverting back to a 3 pack set. Each pack will be labelled A, B or C. Collecting one of each will ensure you complete the basic cards while all chase and premium inserts remain random. This is what we did with our first Sherlock release 2 years ago and it seemed like a good time to try it again!

This set has our widest variety of inserts to date. Of course you will find sketch cards and autographs (including cut signatures from Rathbone and Brett). Additionally we have artefact cards and first edition cards. These cards contain real fragments of the first ever published editions of the stories, along with images and identifiable passages. Rescued from damaged and partially destroyed vintage 1890’s copies of “The Strand” we have come up with a way to present and save parts of these fantastic stories first published more than a century ago. This will allow collectors to own an identifiable part of a real first edition. This includes passages from the first ever published short story “A Scandal in Bohemia” and many others. These are really very very cool cards.

You will find one premium insert in every pack with 1/3 of the basic set and a selection of chase cards! This set is obviously very limited and of course we will have an early order bonus card again.

Pre orders open in the next 24 hours and a list of sketch artists on the set will be up soon.

This looks great! It was fun doing work on this set and I'll have to pre-order some as well! Kudos on getting Rathbone and Brett cut signatures, that is awesome!

The last Sherlock set was very good and this one sounds even better and with only a limited release it should sell out very quickly.

It looks a really nice set and a good companion to the first release.

Do you have any details on who has signed for the set and what the likely ratios will be for the premium insert in each pack eg. will half the packs have a sketch and the other half either an auto or some type of relic card?

We are still working on a lot for the cut signatures and waiting on the final numbers for the living folks that have signed as well.

It looks like 4-5 sketch cards per case 1-2 autos per case (this number may be increased) and a variety of relics making up the rest.

This set is a step away from the first release in some ways as we are dealing wholly with the first 12 short stories. The next set will cover the second 12 ect.

This will be a great set, thanks for doing it.

I'm glad to see SHouseman on sets.
I have an old PSC of his (Shaun of the Dead),
and thought he was always class act.

Thank you for that! I remember Shaun in his white shirt and tie covered with blood! I always liked that card Smile

Yes, all orders have now shipped! We are awaiting payment on a couple of invoices but other than a few packs we have kept back for taking to shows and conventions it looks like this set is a sell out! Of course our dealers and distributors may well still have cases for sale and artists will have AP cards that will be available any day now! Clap

Congrats on another sell out, hardly surprising really considering the quality of the product, but well deserved just the same. Clap

Some really nice stuff there. Thumb Up

If there are 12 cut sigs why are there only 7 names or is there more than one of some of them.
