Default Share comically mis-titled sketches you find on eBay here

I find some pretty funny when they’re flat out wrong, even more-so when they use a super obscure characters name when it’s someone common, like where’d they pull that name from without being a fan but still get it wrong?

Here’s a gem I just found and messaged the seller to correct

My first impression when I saw that was "Luke and Biggs but geez that sure doesn't look much like Luke"....

My worst mislabeling (that I know of) was I called a Jedha Pilgrim an Imperial Guard.

The jedha pilgrim do have similar helmets to guavian enforcers though, so that'd be a fair mistake. Not sure if there's any connection or not, like the pilgrims turned into mercs after the death star attack

I'm pretty sure I've seen some salacious crumb labelled as Yoda and vice versa when they're b/w sketches.

I think the artist bears more responsibility for that mis-titling than the seller....

I didn't realize he had contributed to any sketch card sets, but that wouldn't surprise me. Based on what he typically does at cons, I could easily see somebody who isn't familiar with the name thinking it was kind of a dud sketch. Well known in the comic world, but the crossover between comics and sketch cards is very limited, especially among the rip-n-flip sellers.

I remember he was teased on a SW set (Obi-Wan sketch) but none of his cards turned up, that I'm aware of.
