I like that one as well, and it really annoys me that the printer screwed up the sizing/placement of the image on the card. the whole thing is o/c high and to the left.

Let's hope the M°°se has been sacked.

Good, she was nothing but a liability to the hobby, and in my opinion caused most of the sketch bubble herself, I hope she loses a ton of money. She made everyones collections worth less. Good riddance! Her, and her fucking sideways listings...the sooner the better! I said in a post 3 years ago, gluttony is a sin.

I personally never collected for profit. I collect because I like what I collect. And Leslie was one of the few on ebay that you could get a good deal.

It will take quite a while for her to sell all the sketches listed because most of them are "you choose one" listings. I wonder if these are her "extras". Could take forever to sell them, especially if no one bites on an entire listing. Also I thought I saw a couple of listings that were the same?

from talking with her (Email) and buying on/off EBAY, If she holds anything back, it won't be much......she does own some FINAL Painting art.....wonder if that is next?

Geez, that's harsh!  She collected what she liked and could afford to buy, which is not evil, or a sin. 

IMO, Topps is to blame for the current state of affairs - they screwed the pooch with all the back variations in ANS11, and they've turned off more than just Leslie with clunker sketches.

Back and border variations are pretty easy to ignore, though. The series succeeds or fails on the art and the gags.

I'm not even buying Leslie's sketches even though she has some great ones and has made me great offers.

That should be the case, but I fear that Topps has inflated their expectations because of the most serious collectors who were going for all border variations (except maybe gold).  And, many card collectors consider back variations significant enough to collect.  Topps basically doubled the total number of 'different' cards in ANS11, and the major collectors seem to have spoken - they're not buying into this madness.

At least with GPK, the use of art twice in a set comes with a different name on the front.  ANS11 Wackys not only had no differences besides the reverses, they weren't even numbered so as to distinguish between variations.

My concern is that Topps will take the rejection of their crazy variations as a rejection of Wackys as a viable product.  I think they need to scale things back before they lose more collectors.

Agreed. I guess as I collector, I was pretty happy with the status quo circa ANS7 and ANS8. The sketches were pretty scarce, so I would only try to get one. The silver borders where tough but not impossible to collect. I was content with one gold per release. Funny thing, back then I felt a little out of my collecting comfort zone on these releases and now long for those days again. I do like the addition of the canvas cards in the past few releases.
