Question about Artist Proofs

Post by OGB » Tue Sep 28, 2010 10:05 pm

What languages do Artist Proofs come in? I was under the impression that they were only in English.

I have a Japanese Ivory Tower that I got from the artist, with a sketched white back. I'm wondering if this is an actual artist print.

Thanks.

Artistproofs are usually in English.

There is also:
* Revised Italian
* 4th Italian
* 4th BB Japanese
* 4th BB Trad. Chinese
* Ice Age French
* Ice Age Italian
* Ice Age Portuguese
* Ice Age Spanish

Thanks for the feedback.

Is there a market for these at all?

I collect 4th ed bb proofs (japanese & chinese), but I typically only buy full artist sets, as opposed to individual cards.

This is the first one I've seen. All my Legends proofs are English. Can anyone confirm the existence of Ita Legends Proofs?

I just emailed the artist to inquire about other artist proof languages she has. I'm sure if she had Japanese 4th ed. then there's a good chance she'll have Portugese 4th ed. as well.

I'll post any response on this thread.

I have a couple sets of Dan Frazier BB Japanese 4th (copywrite 1996) APs if anyone is interested.

It is very strange, the seller of this Italian Nether Void AP sold a lot of Harold McNeill artist proofs.

Three more (english) Nether Voids!

So maybe it's not a fake and there is really italian AP out there.
