Is this really a thing?

The Topps page said "1 Sketch Card or Oversized Sketch Card (5x7)" but I haven't heard of any oversized sketches being found.  Those were great, the few times they were issued!!  The chance of pulling one was part of the reason I ordered so many sets.  Maybe one of the artists can confirm that I wasn't on a snipe hunt?  Did Topps tell a whopper??

There is one on ebay now. Apparently you have to look through the postcards in each pack to see if a 5x7 sketch is nestled among the postcards.

I actually DID that for the first order.  Was too tired last night, and was planning on doing that today.  I know for sure that yesterdays sets didn't have a sketch in front or back.........  There's still hope!!

Marc is correct! Make sure to check through your postcards! A few lucky collectors might find a 5x7 sketch randomly inserted in sets.

The 5X7 sketch would be in addition to the sketch in the foil pack?

I'm going to have to take a look then (and keep my fingers crossed)!

Same here, out of 24.  So that's 0 for 50.  Not quite gold Windhex, but...

How many did you do?  And, do you perhaps know how many postcard sets were made (for my ever expanding Master List)??

I was not fortunate enough to pull one of your 5 x 7 sketches  :'(   I was hoping for one of your classic montages of all 6 characters from the current set.

But wouldn't no sketch in the silver pack alert you that there was a 5x7? I highly doubt there are 2 sketches in a pack.

Sorry Pat. I dont have a lot of additional information, but hopefully this helps:

I cant say how many 5x7s I drew but I can tell you my hand was pretty cramped by the time I finished drawing them! And yes, there were a few montage sketches.

Don't know the number of sets made, but I know there were lots of sketchcard artists, if that's any indication.

As, for the  sketch card collation, I have no idea whether a collector might get more than 1 sketch with their set...
