I was able to go back through my storage.

I have the Lewis LaRosa original art micro print, but I don’t know how to post the picture. I’m on my iPad right now and can’t seem to get the photo into my post. If anyone has any tips, I’ll be happy to share it here.

Can’t remember if I’ve posted this here but this is, to my knowledge, the first OA sketch given out. I got it at the panel at Wondercon(?) when they announced the prints/sketches in the first place. 8-)

I have a couple of X-O sketches by Nord and they all look exactly like this. It's his go-to head pose.

It's not as much the sketch that I like, more the circumstances in which I got it. :D
But I do like the sketch. :thumb:

That’s a mighty fine piece! I am very envious of some sketches that people have pulled, especially like this one! :clap: :clap:

Wow I am super late to this party. Beautiful original art pieces in this thread. I recently started opening (yes opening) my poly-bagged books I was so hoping to get an original piece but alas I did not. Whilst looking to put together a set of the prints however I run into this:

Image

Now one of those is a dirty liar. I only have one of each so I don't know which is the misprint. Would you guys let me know which is Eric Canete and who is the other one?

Also I don't suppose anyone has any original art they would be willing to part with? if so please send me a PM and we can talk price.

Thanks!

Any change the one on the left is an original art card? I have the one on the right in my collection. I have 46 of the announced 50 cards (missing are Brent Peeples, Joe StPierre, Mike Leeke, Pat Olliffe) and I do not think it is one of the artists I am missing. If it is not and it is not an original art card it looks like we have a variant card :o which would beg the question are there any other variant cards out there :-? :bugeyed:

I don't believe its an Original Art card being that the name and image are printed. Also the art is ever so different between them so I dont think they are the same person. (could be but they look like different styles to me). So I think one must be a misprint on the name.

So you are saying you also have the one on the right with that name?

The conclusion would be that the one on the left must be one of the ones you are missing with a misprint name. Surely someone will be able to confirm this.

I have both cards. I also have Pat Olliffe that looks exactly the same.

Btw, if it had been original art it would have been stamped on the back.

So, there are actually 51 cards (52 with the Cary Nord preview of thinner paper), including the mislabeled Pat Olliffe. Anyone seen any more mislabeled ones?

This is the error card. I can't recall which was Eric's and which not. I asked Dinesh, and he said the error was printed in equal quantities as the others, so it's not rare, just a *SQUEE* up.

The Cary Nord preview was given out by CGC in boxes. It's thin and difficult to find in decent condition. It's essentially a flyer.

A few blanks have floated around, presumably for unused paper from the original art cards.

So it is 52 cards not 50.

Here I thought I was making progress. So I still need 5 of the 52. Brent Peeples, Joe StPierre, Mike Leeke, Pat Olliffe and the Pat Olliffe that is labeled Eric Canete. I didn't even realized I had the thin Nord preview (thanks NYCJadie for including it in the lot of micro-prints I got from you).

If there anyone besides Nameless7 and I who are still trying to put a set together and trading these? I know the two of us would very much like to finish the microprints off.
