The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
This set is now finally available for order and will be shipping in January 2013!
This is one of our most anticipated products of the last 12 months, and the one we have had the most questions and information requests about. The set looks fantastic and it’s full of new art from some top creators. The set will cover the first 12 short stories and it will act as a companion to the book. For this release we decided to change things around a little, and we are reverting back to a 3 pack set. Each pack will be labelled A, B or C. Collecting one of each will ensure you complete the basic cards while all chase and premium inserts remain random. If you order 2 or 3 packs you will always get different letters.
This set has our widest variety of inserts to date. Of course you will find sketch cards and autographs (including cut signatures from Rathbone and Brett). Additionally we have artefact cards and first edition cards. These cards contain real fragments of the first ever published editions of the stories, along with images and identifiable passages. Rescued from damaged and partially destroyed vintage 1890’s copies of “The Strand” we have come up with a way to present and save parts of these fantastic stories first published more than a century ago. This will allow collectors to own an identifiable part of a real first edition. This includes passages from the first ever published short story “A Scandal in Bohemia” and many others. These are really very very cool cards.
You will find one premium insert in every pack with 1/3 of the basic set and a selection of chase cards! This set is obviously very limited and of course we will have an early order bonus card again, so for those ordering in the before the 5th of Jan you will get an exclusive card not available in packs! These new premium packs are £20.00. You will also find a list of sketch artists on this project listed below which is being updates regularly.

Sherlock Holmes & Victorian Crime: Second Edition Factory Set.
Our first Sherlock Holmes set was a sell out and one of our most requested products. Because of this late last year we put together a very limited edition second printing of this set to take to conventions as an exclusive. We are now offering a very small number of these for sale on the site!
This second edition printing was limited to just 200 factory sets. Each hand numbered set will come packed with two correspondingly numbered mini chase cards along with the “missing” crossover card numbered 19, which was originally issued in the Monsters Zombies and Freaks set. New for this set you may find (1:3 packs) the new Mini Canvas card, this card shrinks the original 9 card canvas chase set image down to regular size, and it looks stunning. You may also find a sketch if your lucky! They fall at about 1:20 packs and include art from Sanna U and Robert Hack.
Numbers are strictly limited and as an extra incentive we will add one of the fantastic 4 card Sherlock Holmes Terror by Night Rathbone mini sets in for every pack ordered!
Of course that’s not all you will also get a nice selection of promos but importantly you will also get one of our VERY LIMITED Buyers Preview cards for a set that will not be announced until the 25th of February. This will be one of only two or three chances to obtain this card and we expect it run out quickly, you will get one for each pack you order not just one card per order! We will also include one of the NSU Adventures of Sherlock Holmes 2011 Memorabilia show mini promo’s with the first 20 orders!
