Hello, perhaps some can help me understand as I don't open a lot of boxes. I thought that an archive box always has the sticker "Archive Box" on the outside of the box on the plastic wrapping? I just opened a box of Conan and on the underside of the lid was the sticker not on the outside. If it was on the outside I would not have opened it. Does this happen from time to time?

Thanks, Tim

Congratulations! You just opened an unmarked Archive Box: the ones that go in cases are only marked on the inside so that they don't stand out. It's only the Dealer Incentive boxes that are marked on the outside... Big Grin

Well Done You! Big Grin

Cool! Then I guess "bad" isn't the only kind of luck I have. Thanks for the info.

To have an Archive box sticker on the inside rather than the outside is pretty smart. Many dealers today already benefit from case incentive cards and other perks from buying a full case because they are the ones that usually open many cases of products compared to collectors. It's actually pretty neat for the collectors to actually get a chance at something special without having to buy an entire case eventhough I know this individual did buy a full case. At least now everybody knows they can still get an Archive box by buying a single box rather than spending hundreds of dollars to pay for one.
