These are very cool. I especially like the color Kook-aid and the "shopping kid" sketches.

Me too, both of those are very cool and well done.  I hope someone here pulls them so they find a good home!

I especially like the color Kook as well. I admire Fred's artistic skills on the "shopping kid", but man I hate that little bastard! (the "shopping kid", not Fred)

I like those too.  It's also interesting that Chickless is in there - have we seen an ANS7 title as a sketch before this?

Band-ache sketch hit ebay from Cardgary.  I love Gary's whining about the number of cases he opened and how he contradicts himself during his numerous lines of begging people not to give him low offers.  So which is it, only his third sketch for sale under this id, his first sketch?  Are other's copying his ebay verbiage or does he have multiple seller ids?


"Please keep in mind that I have opened TOO MANY packs and this is only the third sketch I have pulled. This would make my odds 1:5350. "

"Please take a moment and think before sending an offer. Understand what I have listed here and that I have opened case after full case and this is my first sketch pulled. "

What a clown!

So basically he is saying he has pulled 3 sketches with his odds being 1:5350? That would mean if he purchaed his boxes at around $30 each he would have spent around $20K+. who has issues here? This is just crazy to spend that kind of money for a series. He's probably only recouped about $3K of that. He will be out of biz soon.

Yup, and he's taking out his frustration with his sketch prices, trying to make it all back with inflated prices.  Topps made the odds so tough it's obviously not a great series for those trying to profit from it, and if Gary is telling the truth about how many sketches he's pulled vs amount purchased he's been pretty unlucky on top of it all.

My guess is he might be full of crap since he has only listed about 3 golds. I will have to look it up. Anyway, he sounds like a desperate or frustrated man.

OK, I looked it up and he has only listed 3 golds. That doesn't tell you how many he has offered offline but I really don't think he really has opened that many packs. Although it does seem kinda strange that there hasn't been many golds sold lately. This also goes for new listings. It's strange that the golds have would have dried up faster than the sketches. It's all too strange. I have a hunch that ANS7 may take some big buyers out of biz. They may have gotten lucky with their first pull but after that it's been dry. I think this has happened to Cardgarys. He is now scrambling to recoup his cost. This is not a good business to be in right now. The odds are totally stacked against you.

I also want to add one thing - we still haven't seen about 20 OLDS color sketches. That, to me, is really strange since this was a very small run. I thought we would have heard of all color sketches. So where did they disappear to?

In unopened packs what? I don't follow. Yes, there are unopened boxes on ebay but you also have to look at what have sold and at what price.

HUH???  you asked where the missing old school color sketches were.... I suggested they are in sealed old school boxes which are for sale on ebay regularly and in sealed envelops(I inadvertantly used the word pack).

I updated this section, which collects sketches seen through the forum or on eBay:

... and added this section (with Topps' permission), which is comprised of sketches that  may still be lurking in packs. I'll add more over time:

Very nice collection. I just wish you would have drawn about 5000 of these so I'd have a shot at getting some at a fair price.

Didn't we try to track how many boxes forum members bought/opened, and come up significantly below 3,650?  Old School was promoted in NSU, there was even a promo card in the magazine, and card collectors had plenty of time to order boxes.  I'm thinking a number of non-sport collectors got lucky, and added color sketches to their private collections.  Also, there are Wacky collectors who don't use the forums -if I wasn't on the forums, you wouldn't have seen my two color sketches.  And, as Ernie says, there are still unopened boxes out there.

That must be it.  I remember Greg telling me the extent of collectors that "fly under the radar" and I was surprised.  For some reason these folks like to stay in the background and not make it a social hobby like we do, so if they get a nice sketch it will probably never be seen by us.

I don't know how you guys do that.  I couldn't last a week with unopened boxes like that!  I've bought unopened packs before to get the wrapper or the cards inside, and I've told the sellers prior to buying it.........if you don't want this pack opened don't sell it to me!  At least I'm honest.

I think we came up with about 50% of the boxes accounted for.

Here's a batch of Crusts that I drew for the ANS7 sketch cards.



I was reminded of these because one of this batch is on eBay at the moment:

It's a Wacky Warhol!
Ha, I should have thought of that. I could have used an assistant like Warhol did, that sketch card deadline was tight. The Crusts were an attempt to do a bunch of sketches quickly that would still be somewhat unique.

 

anything
