    Use this thread to discuss theories and keep track of clues and hints.
    Also, please post here the link to any document (or similar) created to cooperate on the mission.
    Meanwhile I'll try to keep this post updated with useful info and hints.

    Hints
    Part 1
    If you are focusing on Weber, this is not the Weber you are looking for
    Note that the assistant is talking about "playing sets", that doesn't seem like "conventional art".
    What comes in sets that you are able to play with and have "art" in it?
    Weber is an illustrator of a famous trading card game.
    And the the name of the game is the solution.

    Part 2
    You need to discover what the images illustrate.
    It is a printing technique. A reverse image search can help.
    All you need is the name of the correct card manufacturer with a facility in Texas.
    Dallas, TX 75236

    What could be 'played' but also has been designed by artists?
    Also think about what this might be that appreciates in value (as shown by the graphs).

    17-2 Nudge
    Figure out what the pictures are used for, and then what are these dealers after?
    You are looking for a company that does this in TX.

    Adding to what Lyrah says, there is an additional clue towards the solving of 7.1:
    Kellers stated that the thing they are looking for is released in sets. What kind of item can be "played" that is released in sets that has been designed by artists?

    don't try to be too generic, stay in the world of 17.1

    This one was easy to overcomplicate, I was looking for anything I could find specific to the objects in the image. Chinese and all! :p

    this was the only mission that I knew without looking anything up. oh man, that shows how much of a dork I am.

    Out of curiosity, I'd like to know how long this took people who weren't familiar with the card game. Like Nefaria, I smashed through this quickly because of background knowledge (I actually went a little too far and identified the card he was probably looking for at the start). But it seems like it could take a while without that background.

    I have very little knowledge of the game (Basically just the name), and managed to complete the mission fairly quickly by using the information provided and intel found through Google =)
