Sketch cards, autographs etc?

Just looking to see if anyone else on here does.

If so...what sets do you collect etc?

My main focus is sketch cards of Hiro from Heroes series 1 and 2 and from time to time Ill have an artist draw one up.

2nd main focus is Sons of Anarchy. People who have autographs in card sets that have been in the tv show etc.

3rd is collecting stuff of ODB from TNA wrestling.

Last but not least is sometimes Ill get art drawn up and signed by celebs.

Just a sample-

Cool stuff. I collect some non sport cards but not on the level that you do. I'll buy a box or two of stuff I like and put the set with whatever inserts I get in a binder, but I don't look for specific inserts to buy. I like to get autos more than sketches, but sketches are great too. My cousin actually does a lot of sketch cards for many sets (his name is Ted Dastick Jr. http://tdastick.deviantart.com/) and he sets up a table at a lot of shows in the Philadelphia area. If there's a show he doesn't have a table at, we usually go anyway.

I've bought a few boxes of Heroes cards from almost every season and that last archives set they put out. Stuff I also buy is any James Bond stuff, Game of Thrones, Dexter, True Blood and Star Wars to name a few (I'm horrible about cards making it from the box to a binder, they're sitting all around my room).

I've got at least 4 or 5 complete sets of Marvel and X-Men cards at my mother's place, and recently completed (I think) the first series of the new Power Rangers Action Card Game.

I collect Pokemon cards. Have a couple Full Art cards (OG Zekrom, Reshiram, Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus) and a few Legend cards. One of my favorites is the oldie but goodie Ancient Mew. I also prefer almost card drawn by Kouki Saitou.

Had a bunch of Yu-Gi-Oh! cards way back when, but stopped collecting them around Legacy of Darkness.

I used to collect the FFXIII Triple Triad Cards as well as MTV animation trading cards. The MTV cards were Beavis and Butthead, Aeon Flux, The Brothers Grunt, The Head, and The Maxx. That's about it as far as non sports cards that I have ever collected. Of course that was ages ago. I did want to pick up the Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories cards, but that kind of fell off my radar when I couldn't find them in game stores.

I used to collect comic cards a lot, still have some of them somewhere I think. I remember loving the Marvel Masterpiece series, such great art on those cards.

I swear that Wolverine's claws change depending on who's drawing him. Sometimes they're flat blades, sometimes they're more like long pointed spikes with no edge, sometimes curved, sometimes more straight, always different. Then there were the bone claws, ugh.

I asked him, he said he knows you. Do you have something of his scanned that you can post? He shows me a majority of stuff he does but not everything.

This is a serious question: Why would you ever want/need so many autographs of a single B-list celeb?

Its too bad you're still a prick with a stupid gimmick.

He wasnt doing sketch cards at the time of Heroes being released so I never ran across anything of his to add to my collection.

Its a collectors thing I guess...One is a "base set" autograph, another is numbered, then there is the one with the "Stiflers Mom" variant signature.

When collecting Hiro cards were slow, Id fill that time up with others and she was one of those.

Well I was walking through Target yesterday and saw Garbage Pail Kids are back (again), so yeah. I do collect non-sports cards, at least for now.

Decided to skip the randomness and buy last year's base set for 11 bucks on Ebay, I'll worry about chase cards later. Series 2 is on the shelves now. Still have all the ones I bought when they first brought them back 10 years ago, as well as all I had from the original run in the 80's.

I remember being extremely surprised when I learned that the guy who created the Garbage Pail Kids (Art Spiegelman) also wrote Maus.
