Nice sketches, I wouldn't be unhappy with them.

The Sean Pence and Wilkinson are little beauts, the Tonnika Sister is a rare sketch, plus it goes with your auto card.

I was really pleased with the Sean Pence sketch - I think it's one of the sketches that I saw online before the release of the set.

After seeing it as a preview, I decided that I would buy a case.

How cool is that!

Finally got a box! Here's what I got:

Base Set - missing 7 cards (43 extras)
1 Box topper - #155 (3rd series; yellow)
8 Die-cut tryptic cards
2 Blue parallels - #62 & 101
1 Red parallel - #111
1 Autograph card - Richard LeParmentier (Admiral Motti)

I like to say that this is a great looking set. Say what you will about Topps, but they have done a nice job with this set. Hope to get another box soon.

Was very pleased to get the 2 golds, especially the Leia.

The 3 autos were pretty much the bottom of the barrel.

7 sketches surprised me quite a bit. Happy with them even though they are all pencil, although the Ingrid Hardy has some light color. Scans coming by the weekend.

Looks like you hold the current record Master. Out of the 3 cases I've cracked so far I received the following breakdown - 4S/4A, 4S/4A and 2S/6A. Kudos to you on getting a great case break.

and I wanted to ask if anyone else had problems with the number of cards inserted per pack. In my first case throughout 6 of the 8 boxes, packs had as few as 2 cards and as many as 12 cards. Not what I would call quality control.

For the base cards, I didn't notice. But for sketch/auto insertion rates, there should be some sort of quality control. The average case should yield about 3 sketches, but some people have pulled up to 7, and some people (sigh...like me) only got 1. Hit or miss....that's all i can say.

Guess I should feel lucky...
Only pulled two sketches, and five autos with one dupe. Although, I am still trying to figure out what one of the sketches is supposed to be??? Confused

Sent my dud box off Monday with a counterpraise letter of endorsement. Mad

Quality control and Topps appear to be world's apart. Twak

Oh very, I was just relieved to beat the odds by pulling out 4 autos + 5 sketches although I'm not impressed by the Tom Hodges piece the rest more than make up for it.

I actually enjoyed the experience so much I'd like to get my hands on another case but the price now is a bit too rich for me given the odds of getting a miss case.
