Default Viceroy Insectae Case Break

I could not be happier with my break. Received 2 silver, 8 black chips and I believe 2 sets of the inserts. Did some really high res scans in the links below.



Clinton Yeager/Pablo Diaz (wondering if the V in the corner is unique)
Gerald DeDios/Diana Levin



Brandon Kenney (looks amazing in person)/Michael Munshaw (red jewel beetle)/Eric Spohn (lightning bugs)
April Reyna (nine bark beetle)/Mick + Matt Glebe (1/5 maybe the coolest card in the set)/Mark Dos Santos

High Res 1
High Res 2

Great cards! I think that Glebe, as you said, will definitely pull some major interest.

They all have the "V" for Viceroy imprinted on them, that artist just colored theirs in

I've never been blown away by the Glebes' style, but I've never seen one in person, and maybe they don't scan very well. That is, I've never been blown away...until now. That is a wicked good sketch!

Have you tried turning it off and back on again?

I agree about the Kenney- I got one myself and the scan of it doesn't look nearly as good as the actual card does. It's too bad it's hard to capture just how well done they are.

Brandon's one of the best in the biz.

I agree. I'm not a huge fan either but that one is great.

I like the Diana Levin also

Appreciate all of the kind words. Funny that no one has offered or pinged about a trade. Speaks to the quality of the set that I think people assume everyone will want to keep all of their pulls.

For those whonhave been collecting sketches: How do you display yours and have you come up with a way to display multiple sketches at once?

Awesome stuff. Each of those cards is great, and it seems that all the artists on this set did great work.

I bought a card display that was for baseball kin theory but has 20 individual plastic holders. I got it at a craft store, in the display section. I also use photo collage display frames if they have the right size spaces.
