This series of original art sketch cards seems to tell a story that cannot be expressed in words. Truly transcendent.

That is not an illusion. Kate “Red” Bradley actually created a series of one-of-a-kind original art sketch cards that featured Marvel characters playing hockey in their signature colors. The cards were approved by Marvel and inserted into Upper Deck’s Marvel Masterpieces packs. They now fetch prices in the neighborhood of $200 – $300… IF you can ever find one available for sale.
It’s a beautiful thing.
That poignant portrait is by Taki Soma. It is owned by a collector named Guillaume, residing in France. Thanks to Marvel Masterpieces, Squirrel Girl really gets around.
Those are one-of-a-kind sketch cards that were included in the Marvel Masterpieces 3 packs at random. The artist is Meghan Hetrick, and she is our new hero.
