Edit: Also make sure to have good questions prepared in advance. With the Saitou one we had some interesting info revealed. I found out the artists usually get 10 copies of their card unless it’s rare, in which case they often get less.
Update: Check your email if you didn’t get selected round 1 for the panel. Round two of open spots seemed to have gone out today. Assuming these are open spots from people that didn’t signup within the signup period.
Unfortunately I cannot make it to the event I’m in Japan and most of Arita Sensei’s event are oversea. I wonder if anyone can help me get one card signed and I’d like to pay a commission. Ps. I’d like to help in the future signing event in Japan
It’s just tough because the demand is insane. The line rolls over for the whole weekend so it may be the case that you literally only get one signing slot which is 2 cards with a sketch on just one of them.
I have a panel slot so I’m likely to get 4 slots at least. I wouldn’t be suprised if that was all I got for the whole weekend.
Just the four autos - two without sketches ‐ will cost me about $300. I live in Toronto so I don’t even have to worry about flights or hotel. It could very much be the case that someone spends $1k for the trip and leaves with 0-2 autographs
I’d love to help @Frandesu or @jac2357 or anybody else on here who would want one. But the cost both financially and timewise (and I’d be losing one of my own spots) is just not worth it unless you’re offering compensation at $1000 minimum per card.
If it ends up being the case that Arita is signing so fast I could go through 10 times, then I’d happily help at a more reasonable price. I also have a spare stamp promo . But I’d feel terrible promising a spot to someone if there’s a good chance I might not be able to honor it
I would be willing to get 1-2 cards signed for someone on here. I have a panel slot and should be able to get through the line at least one time. I would be keeping the sketch auto slots for myself as those are what I have plans for. In terms of cost, I would probably be charging in the realm of $400-500 per card. If that interests anyone here, feel free to pm me and we can work out details.
Hey guys! The event is coming up and I just wanted to double check… does anyone have confirmation on how/where/when to pick-up the spectator passes? Don’t want to not get them/ show-up on the day and realize I’ve done something wrong! Thanks!
