Two boxes arrived today, the doorbell rang and when I answered, the postman was at end of the drive shouting "I'll sign for you" - oh the joys of Coronovirus.

Overall another disappointing selection of Auto's

Ian Beattie as Meryn Trant
Faye Marsay as The Waif "WHO ARE You?! Inscription
Andy Kellegher as Polliver
Burn Gorman as Karl Tanner "Seven Silvers" Inscription

Gold base #51 (87/175)

BD69 & 70

Q 75,76,77,78

DL 54, 60 & 62 (Gold 111/125)

Metal "For the Throne" F9.

Normal Selection of base parallel.

Two base sets and 2 cards short of a 3rd.

Hammer,

Just be glad you didn't buy a case - I was mug enough and my to EL autographs were Tim Plester Valyrian Steel and Nicholas Blane Gold.

Despite being my 6th case of the series still not got a sketch card either even though statistically I should have got 3 by now.

Inscriptions were awful; 2 with the GOT text and 2 more with the character name. Rest of the autographs were dross really.

Only decent pulls were Daenerys cards - For the Throne metal and Relic.

Can't believe I went back to cases after dumping them after season 5; I just thought that there were enough high end cards to make this one worthwhile. Funny how even with that how many of the money spinners still land with the dealers.

I love GOT, but I quit collecting the cards way back in season three and a half because of the same reasons, too little for too much of my money.

Check out the sold listings on ebay for "Rose Leslie auto". At least 3 with that inscription sold, some on BO and I kid you not, one went for only $75.

Not sure those would have been good buys for you as an international buyer, but it shows that not everyone knows an important inscription when they have it. A Sean Bean auto with a little man-thingy sketch also got pulled. Those should go for a good price too.

From my two boxes the Autograph Cards were:
Paul Rattray as Harald Karstark FB
Staz Nair as Qhono Inscription "I serve my Queen"
Richard Dormer as Beric Dondarrion FB
Ian Hanmore as Pyat Pree Inscription "Your dragons await you"

I was happy with the Dormer, and it was OK to get a new signer Rattray. But truly, my boxes were only saved by pulling a Relic VR16 Cersei. A nice fuzzy red velvet swatch. Smile

I was able to make 3 base sets, had the usual inserts but also one Acetate "T3 Jon Snow"...even though the checklist has Jon Snow as T11.
The acetate cards are OK, but nothing really exciting and I wouldn't bother tracking any others down. Still not as good as those box card thingies from the S1 set.

What I don't quite understand(probably because I was never interested in Maths Big Grin ) is there are 8000 boxes, that's less than some season's sets yet the filler low grade stuff is ridiculous. With only a 60-card base set surely there was an opportunity to put at least more Quotable cards in a box...so many packs with just base cards and not even foil parallels.
I know card companies don't set the sale prices once opened and sold on the secondary market, blah blah, but it's pretty obvious that an EL Blane is not worth anywhere near an EL Headey or Turner and shouldn't be seen as a big hit for a case.
I really don't understand how some of the one-liner/minor actors have EL cards, nor just how many have Inscription cards.
Once the checklist became clear I was so relieved I didn't buy a case. I don't have the energy nor health currently to sort out sets to sell on, so that was part of the reason, but also how poor value cases have been for the past few seasons.

Oh well, there aren't many people who can say "Cersei saved me." Big Grin

Got my box today - here's what was inside:
1 base set 60 cards, 45 extras
8 Foil Parallel, 1 Gold Parallel
2 Quoteables
1 Relationships
1 Acetate card, Cersei
2 autographs
1 Valarian Steel style Hannah Waddingham as Septa Unella (Limited)
1 Inscription Auto Sibel Kekilli "Shae" (Scarce)

Thoughts: I was pleased with the autos, both memorable characters. I was disappointed with chase, there could have been more inserts in each box,another Quoteable, another Relationships and a Beautiful Death for sure. Why make these so hard to get? I never cared much for the foil parallels, the gold ones are very nice, however. I will try to complete the Quoteables, my favorite insert set, but doubt I will chase after many of the other inserts.

Don, I do agree with the chase set comment - Why does RA make the chase so difficult? The Relationships at 1 a box is silly

I purchased one box. It was numbered 1790 of 8000.

1 base set & 42 towards a second base set
8 foil parallel cards
1 gold foil parallel card, #44 numbered 035/175
2 Quotable, Q73 and Q79
1 Relationships, DL62
1 Map Marker, MM8 House Bolton
1 Relic card, VR16 Cersei Lannister's Dress
1 dual autograph, Tom Wlaschina & Faye Marsay
1 inscription autograph, Will Tudor with "Oberyn - my first prince!"

I was surprised to pull a relic and map marker card from the same box. They helped make that box a good one.

I agree with the previous comments made regarding the chase cards. It would have been nice to have at least one more each of the Quotable and Relationships sets given the smaller base set.
