Limited Edition Artist Trading Cards
In 2012, the Rebel Legion decided to do a limited set of sketch cards of our members to commemorate Celebration VI in Orlando Florida. Fourteen world renowned and extremely talented artists generously donated their time and skills to create these one of a kind pieces of art. Each piece features a Rebel Legion member in their approved Star Wars costume. Once the art was completed, it was compiled into sets only available to Rebel Legion members. With the approval of Lucasfilm™, the original art for the cards was to be auctioned off to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation® in hopes that the funds would bring joy to a child in need.
Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work. The Foundation’s mission reflects the life changing impact that a Make-A-Wish® experience has on children, families, referral sources, donors, sponsors, and entire communities.
Featured in these auctions are a 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ Original piece of art featuring various members in his/her approved costume from the Prequel Trilogy, Original Trilogy, Clone Wars and Expanded Universe. The artwork was created specifically for this set and is a 1 of 1 piece.
Along with the original piece of art, you will get the actual printed sketch card from the set it was created for. On the back of each printed card is a place for the artist to sign the card as well as a bio about the artist. 100% of the money from these auctions will go directly to the Make-A-Wish® Foundation.
We hope you will keep an eye out for each of the auctions as they will be happening over the next month or so.
You can search EBAY by:
ARTIST NAME (EX. Beck Seashols, Bill Pulkovski, Plinio Pinto, Jamie Snell, etc)
Make A Wish Foundation
and be able to find them.
You can also find them by their Character name, which is in the title.
They are 7 day auctions and the starting bid is $25 for most pieces with a few no higher than $40 for the cover art and larger pieces, with 100% of the funds going to the Make a Wish Foundation.
