Cards can sometimes slip under the radar and sell for surprising amounts. Need an example? Check out the sketch cards in 2014 Rittenhouse Game of Thrones Season 3. Mixing rarity and quality, the cards are proving to be very popular.
Sketch cards in the product are inserted approximately one in every other case. That works out to 1:24 boxes.
The 23 artists who contributed to the set are among the best working with the format. They include Mick and Matt Glebe, Sean Pence, Charles Hall and Tim Shay.
Like the Season 2 sketch cards, artists were given some restrictions. They couldn't use the likenesses of human characters. As a result, there are lots of scenic shots, animals, creatures and symbols. You can find dragons and dragon eggs but no Mother of Dragons.
