Opened one box.

Base set
5 x foils (all in the same pack)
Fenella Fielding auto
Valerie Leon auto
Sketch

So, after all the talk about lots of hits and all sketches being high quality etc., got two ordinary autos (from common signers) and a pretty poor sketch which so far not actually able to work out who it's supposed to be.

Disappointing.

I agree with you about being disappointing. My box had a B&W sketch and autographs of Isla Blair and A. Wills. I bought those 2 autos for $15 combined so I basically paid over $100 for a sketch that I wouldn't have bought for $10. I am disgusted that I basically threw my money out the window. For a box that is so expensive, not to mention overseas shipping, I feel like I should have gotten more. I want to go for a master set of autographs and I would have been much better just picking up singles. Easily the worst return I have ever gotten on a newly released box of cards. Will definitely not buy another box no matter how much I like the Avengers trading cards.

I went for the three box deal from the Unstoppable site.

I paid full price on the site, when I could of got them for 33% cheaper - yes you got that right.

Advantages - a sketch, 3 autos, a plate and lots of promos was added to the package. I received a premier auto in one of the boxes. I received all the minor autos also.

Disadvantages - I was shorted by one sketch in box no6. Never got the binder I was promised. The quality of card stock - well there's no quality

Conclusion - The dealers are king! The punters are very much secondary. I love Avengers very much, If you love the products Unstoppable cards sell - never, never buy from the web site, contact your dealer. We are not talking small cash here, we are talking big. I bought three boxes for 249UKP thats 83UKP each,($132.80), when I could have paid 50UKP ($80). The maths doesn't work out.

Unstoppable need to look after the punters as well as the dealers who buy direct. Did I get value for money? Sadly no.

You're right about the card stock. Not sure I've seen another set as thin!

And yes, they've always massively ramped up their prices on their website. I never buy direct from them.

I've opened 4 boxes of my case.

3 sketches - all okay, all of Mrs. Peel. One has some water based finishing since it's curled up.

The box without a sketch had 3 autos instead of 2.
The 5 foil cards in a box were all in one pack.

Autos
Isla Blair x3
Anneke Wills x3
Julie Stevens
Fenella Fielding
Jennie Linden

I'll post the rest when I get round to opening them.

Does anyone have a scan of the promo you were supposed to get if you were 1 of the first 200 people to order boxes ? If so can you post

3 of the Valerie Leon autos had 'Best Wishes' on them and 1 have 'Love' on it.

3 boxes without sketches but those had more than 2 autos.

My sketches

Jay Pangan III, Dan Day, Paul Cowan
Westley Smith, Chuck "The hun" Solnai, K L Dye,
Jerry Fleming, Rich Molinelli x2

Mrs Peel except for the Dan Day which is Purdey. I think the first Molinelli might be Tara King and the second one Eunice Grayson as Lucille Banks.

The Angela Douglas autograph was withdrawn before the release, don't know why.

I asked Barrie the same question last week and this was his response, hopefully it's of some use
"Angela has been busy and away so we hope to get her card for
the winter bonus pack in December so yes, this was not in the set."

Yes, there should have been at least one sketch in every box. On the Unstoppable site, it states:

3 to 4 Major Hits Per Box
2 to 3 Autograph Cards Per Box
At Least 1 Sketch Card Per Box.

http://unstoppablecards.com/20...d-edition-boxes.html

I suggest you contact them through their site. Also, make sure you keep the box as you may need to provide information off it.

P.S. Nice hit on the Linda Thorson auto.

Boxes containing a Thorson, Blackman or Rigg autograph do not contain a sketch card.

Someting to do with the way they were packed..This information was on Unstoppable Cards Facebook page prior to release.

How hard are the Thorson and Blackman autos to find, compared to others ?

I think they were both about one in three cases(36 boxes) although there are extra Blackman autos in some case topper packs.
