I saw those while searching ebay. All I know is they are NOT from a licensed card set. It looks like some comic/card shop printed up the card stock and had him do those sketches (at least that's how it's advertised). Is it really from him? Looks like it is by comparing the signatures from the comic set's redemptions, but I'm no expert and you should check them out for yourself.

Thanks. I think your right. The signature looks spot on and I googled some of his sketches and I actually found one that was almost spot on identical to this one.

Any chance Adlard had those made up to hand out to fans?

I seen them and emailed the guy he basically said he had no proof but guarantees theyll pass any authentication... I want one but didnt buy since its not a licensed release from a reputable company and I cant say I trust any authenticators 100%, and most likely by the time you sent them in for authentication and got back it would be too late to file a claim on eBay. I could draw that in three minutes... so could easily be faked. But sure beats paying the $2000 asking price on the Cryptozoic Adlard sketch redemption cards on eBay.

If you google "geek planet trading card", you can find their Facebook page. It looks like they do private signings with celebrities and athletes. However, not really a lot on their page since it's only been up for a month or two. I would assume they had these cards printed up for a private signing with Adlard. However, it's up to you to decide whether there is enough proof to decide if these are real. While I think they are probably real, I personally wouldn't touch them because it's an unknown company, and it's doubtful if you could resell it in the future.

Thanks for the help guys. After what I've seen I think it's legit just not offically authenticated, which I got for my own personal collection for the price of $40 so over I'm satisfied. Thanks everybody!
