Default Firefly The Verse Cheap Case

Loved Firefly and Serenity but felt this was way overpriced on release. Picked up a case last week for $460 which I think is very good value.

Got seven base sets of 171 cards out of the 12 boxes, 144 of 171 green foil parallels, and 40 leather parallels numbered #99.

12 patch cards.
15 artist autograph cards.
12 single actor autographs, 3 dual autographs, and 1 triple autograph. Best two were :






One Black printing plate of card 85



Six sketches


Mek Lemieux ?


Elton Thomas


Scott Zirkel


Joe Hogan


George Vega.


Unknown artist, could not see any signature front or back. Anyone know who the artist is?

Nice case, congrats! The sketch cards are all very nice, and I would say above average for the set from what I've seen.

I think Jewel Staite is one person I just like collecting because I love her auto.

Oh man, I forgot ALL about this set because of the ridiculous release price. Definitely a great deal at $460! I'd bust one too at that price. Nice job!

That is a great price, for some reason, the Firefly autographs never did as well as I expected! I bought 3 cases early on, but there isn't that umph I was hoping for! Ended up breaking even I think, but odd that it didn't do better! For personal collecting you get a lot of great autographs, but resale was terrible for me, but then again I didn't get it that cheap! Congrats on the nice pulls!

For me I just didn't like the basic autograph design at all. Not even enough to pick up singles to add to my other Fillion's

I wanted to break boxes upon boxes of this stuff, but the insane release price and sketch quality (for the most part) was a huge turn off. I ended up picking up this dual for under $70 late one night (not my scan). Congrats on those two autos, and, that dress sketch is very nice.
