In late-November, we wrote about two very limited-edition Walking Dead patch cards that were to be randomly-inserted in packs of The Walking Dead Season 1 Trading Cards. Embroidered police badges from both Rick and Shane’s shirts were made into two, one-of-one, oversized wardrobe cards and available via redemption cards found in random packs. Over the weekend, one of these jems surfaced.
Trading card dealer Henry Buchanan and his wife (who do business as Juniors Comics and Cards out of Austin, TX) found the Shane Walsh redemption card. The Buchanan’s first thought the card was the one of the 18 limited-edition cut-patch cards mentioned in the linked story above, but were shocked to learn the card was a one-of-one card. Buchanan redeemed the card at this past weekend’s WonderCon in Anaheim, CA. Buchanan sold the card to his long-time customer Rande, who was already purchased a complete set from Buchanan. The card was sold for $5,000. Rande (from CT) said he is a huge fan of The Walking Dead sketch cards and is excited to have something one-of-a-kind from the series.
