I was able to participate in OTB again this year - I had a pack of Cult Stuff's "Monsters, Zombies and Freaks" cards! I tweeted and recorded (for the next podcast episode!) my pack opening - here are the pictures!


Me with the pack and contents (in podcaster mode!)

A closer look at the pack and contents - that card at the front is a hand drawn Robert Hack sketch card!
Thanks to Cult Stuff for the pack!
Au Res.,
Paul

Happy OTBD to everyone!

I missed last year through my own laziness, so I made sure to procure a box for this year. I had missed out on the Heroes Archives set on original release, so i decided to try my luck.

The breakdown:
Base set x1 plus extras
The Quotable Heroes x3 Q2, Q5, Q7
Heroes Generations x2 G2, G4
Relic Cards x1 Hiro's Jacket
Autograph cards x6 Katie Carr, Madeline Zima, Katherine Boecher, Tamlyn Tomita, Alan Blumfeld, and Bruce Boxleitner!!!

I was thrilled with the Boxleitner auto. I'm a big Tron fan (just got the Blu-ray this week). I also missed an opportunity to meet him at the Emerald City Comic Con.

Good luck!

Blair

While I don't think it's quite on par with the Rocky II break video I did last year, I didn't have 15 hours to spare this time around.

This year I stayed retro and went with a box of GREMLINS, from O-Pee-Chee.



In a nutshell, got two full sets of 82 cards and a bunch of extras leftover. Unlike the Topps set, there were no stickers.

I was ecstatic to find this box for only $10 plus shipping.

Loving watching the box breaks this year. There's been some great pulls, but I have the same dilemma I have every year ... do I actually open my boxes. Does anyone else do this ?

You see, having actually got my box or boxes, keeping them sealed, looking at them daily wondering what's inside I quite enjoy the wait. Then the day arrives and I feel a pang of regret that it will be opened and it's contents finally revealed. It's the Schrodinger's cat paradox but in trading card form, by not knowing what's in there it could be anything or indeed nothing.

Enough of this, I'm off to look at my boxes and wonder.


(Don't worry, I always open them).

Hi Firebrand:

I hope you don't mind but I edited your post and fixed the problem with the images. I had first thought you had an extra "/" in the web address you posted but that didn't work either. I had to go to the address you posted and then re-copy the web address for ImageShack.

Again, hope you don't mind me doing this.

First box opened: America At War: Band Of Brothers.

What a great set. Despite having an interest in militaria I haven't opened a military related box before and I really enjoyed this one. I was particularly intrigued by the packs, nice to open something other than foil.

Got a full set, a couple of Instant Win cards (which may or may not be winners) and an Edward 'Babe' Heffron auto. Big BOB fan so I was thrilled to get this. No sketch card for me however but I don't mind. I took my time opening these and enjoyed it immensely, it was nice to open something a bit different too.

My box was one of Breygent's "The Vintage Poster Collection: Classic Sci-Fi & Horror Posters" and I wish I'ld got some of these earlier as the cards are superb depictions of classic sci-fi films with the larger postcard size cards being well used

I think my favourite chase card in this box is the P2B "sparkly" Klaatu from "The Day the Earth Stood Still" but there was also a P3B from "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" and 1C/2C/3C/4C from "Creature from the Black Lagoon". Sadly no 2001 chase card but there was a King Kong sketch card
