**Update -- We've Found The Artist** My First eBay Mars Attacks Heritage Sketch Card Has Arrived

The good folks at Topps pointed me in the direction that the illustrator of this card could be Rob Teranishi and I think that they are correct.  Here's another example of his sketch card which is similar to mine only with the Statue of Liberty.   


I picked up this really great detailed pencil sketch card before the sketch card auctions got rolling and I'm sure it could go today for easily double what I paid for it.  Here we have the Sphinx with a little more damage than normal undoubtedly due to the Martian space ships floating overhead.

The illustrator of this card is a little hard to decipher as the signature doesn't match up too easily with Topps' list of Mars Attacks Heritage artists.  What do you think that signature is exactly?  Could it be?

Having worked with Robert on the Topps cards, I can confirm that is his pencil work.

He (Teranishi) does a massive amount of pencils when he does these sets.

Enjoy !

I just recieved my Mars Attacks Heritage box and I got the sketch with the statue of liberty. Kindof thought they were supposed to be 1/1... glad to know who the artist is seeing as I couldn't decifer it either...

Idk if my comment worked the first time, so...

I just received my Mars Attacks Heritage box and I got the sketch with the statue of liberty. I thought it was supposed to be 1/1... kindof makes me raise an eyebrow. Glad to know who the artist is as I also had trouble reading the signature...
