PICTURES WANTED!

We are looking for pictures from your Open That Box! day experience. We may have room in the upcoming issue to run some pictures so if you could remember to snap some pictures on Open That Box! day and send them to me, that would be appreciated.

My e-mail address is in my profile. I need high resolution images -- so please send me the originals and not images that have been re-saved or revised. Just a few from each person is fine -- please don't send me 20 pictures as my inbox can't take it!! LOL

What should you snap?? Take a picture of yourself with your box (either before or after you open it). Or maybe yourself with your family or friends as you open the box. Pets are great too!! Of if you get a snazzy sketch card, send us a scan or picture of yourself holding the card.

We'll try our best to use some of these. No promises though but we hope to run some of them.

Thanks very much.

Great idea. Hope you can use some!

I'm considering opening my boxes on uStream if anyone would be interested in seeing a live break. If so it would probably be around 1 PM Eastern

I might have to get my box at the April 9th Elyria (Cleveland) show. I'll be on the look out for a good deal. Thumb Up

I'll be busting a box of Star Wars Galaxy 5 that I won on eBay the other night.

Cool. It's only one week away now. I'm betting we'll see a lot of Marvel Dangerous Divas and Star Wars Galaxy 6.

That's cool that you are including your daughter, Ted. Don't let her chew on your cards though. Well, maybe some of the dupes would be OK, I guess Big Grin

Please don't forget to send me pictures, if you have them. Be sure to includes names of the pictures, pets, places, things, etc. in the photos.

Only a week to go, I am really looking forward to finding out what's in these boxes!

Well...doesn't look like I'll be doing an Alias Season 2...the seller sent me Alias Season 3 instead so they're going to have to be sent back, and I'll have to wait on the Season 2 boxes which likely won't make it in time.

I would love to bust a Galaxy 6 box, but I just can't support Topps products with what they pay their artists.

Hello everyone, Just a quick note to those planning on making the trip to the CECE Elyria show on April 9th- we will setting up a special area dedicated to Open That Box Day for everyone, inside the dealers room. The Show will be held at the Ramada Inn, formerly the Inn of Elyria. Please see my post in the convention section for the details or you can email me at cecexpo@gmail.com. We will be taking photos to post. So bring your goodies or possibly you will find a gem there to open, and enjoy a family friendly day in Elyria.
Thanks and take care,
Paul

such a great idea
I'm keeping a Hobby box of Scooby Doo to open at this table
- I have so many sets of these cards
I will gladly leave the 2 sets and doubles I get from this box for whom ever needs them at the table
-- all I am looking for is a sketch or autograph from it

looking forward to meeting some forum people at these Ohio shows Smile

box of 800+ cards I have just bought.
300+ chase cards for $200. Bouncey
