Lord of the Rings: Return of the King (Topps)
Well, we just tore through 3 cases here at my house, and here's the condensed result. Sorry, no box by box breakdown, but I did keep the autos separated by case:

Case 1 Autos:
Arwen x 1
Bilbo x 1
Denethor x 2
Faramir x 1
Figwit x 1
Sam x 1
Theoden x 1

Case 2 Autos:
Aragorn x 1
Bilbo x 2
Denethor x 1
Faramir x 1
Figwit x 2
Pippin x 1
Sam x 1
(One box had both Figwit & Bilbo)

Case 3 Autos:
Aragorn x 1
Bilbo x 1
Faramir x 1
Gollum x 1
Pippin x 1
Saruman x 2
Theoden x 1

Prismatic Foil Cards (All 3 cases together!):
8 complete sets
1/10 x 6
2/10 x 5
3/10 x 12
4/10 x 12
5/10 x 7
6/10 x 9
7/10 x 4
8/10 x 4
Anyone missing 3s & 4s with extra 9s and 10s?

Box Toppers (all 3 cases!):
12 sets of 2 cards each

Interesting breakdown on the foil cards and 2 auto cards that never showed up at all (Eomer & Taylor). Here's the combined auto list for all 3 cases:

2 Aragorn
1 Arwen
4 Bilbo
3 Denethor
3 Faramir
3 Figwit
1 Gollum
2 Pippin
2 Sam
2 Saruman
2 Theoden
0 Eomer
0 Richard Taylor

OK, my eyes are sore, but here are my breakdowns:

First, ALL my autos came from Frodo packs, even when there were two autos per box. The autos were evenly spread between both stacks and at various levels within the stack. I the box I had with two autos, one was in each stack.
ALL my foils were in Aragorns, and I had three foils from each stack without variation.
I had one boxtopper in all boxes.

Now, onto the cases/boxes.

First, I opened 6 boxes from one case:
Autos:
Gollum
Arwen x 2
Sam
Eomer
Figwit
Boxtopper 1 x 5
Boxtopper 2 x 1
2 full foil sets plus extras.
Also, I know that the other two boxes from this case both had Richard Taylor autos in them.

First Full Case:
Autos:
Eomer
Richard Taylor
Sam
Arwen
Figwit
Aragorn
Bilbo
Pippin
One box had 2 autos (Figwit and Aragorn) and one had no autos.
Boxtoppers 4 of each
3 full foil sets plus extras

Second Full case
Autos:
Denethor
Theoden
Figwit
R. Taylor
Bilbo
Eomer
Arwen
Saruman (from my last box!)
Boxtoppers 4 of each
3 full foil sets plus extras

Total autos
Saruman
Theoden
Denethor
Aragorn
Pippin
Gollum
Bilbo x 2
R. Taylor x 2
Sam x 2
Eomer x 3
Figwit x 3
Arwen x 3
Faramir x 0

I've got two more boxes arriving next week, and will post those results then.

Purchased Two box's today from my local card shop opened 1st box got 4 chase cards in ever pack and no auto, second box got 3-4 chase in 25 of the 36 pack and 1 auto. has anyone had this happen to them before?
November 17, 2003, 10:10 PM
Charstar
It might explain why some people got no Foils in their boxes,

Are we talking lots of extra autos, or lots of extra foils???

I'm still dreaming of opening a pack it only has autos in it!

Oh, that would be the best dream of all!! Forget dreaming about acing all my exams, a dream where a box of RotK cards had all autos, wow, that'd be something special.

Can't wait to see my 2 boxes. Just hope that there's no funny stuff with it, and it has a good amount of foils (6 on average per box I take it), and any one auto in each box. That'd be nice.

this is the first time that i bought sealed boxes for the lord of the rings sries by topps and i must say that i was not disappointed ! Here is the breakdown :
From the 2 boxes i was able to get 4 base sets and 1 set missing 12 cards, 1 complete set of prismatic foils and 2 extras. As for the autograph cards, i was really anxious because i'm not used to buy boxes like that. I had high hopes and when i opened the first box, i was really disappointed to get a Richard Taylor auto. Don't get me wrong, it was cool but i wanted to get autographs from on-screen characters. Anyway, on to the second and last box. I cracked all the packs and no auto after opening 35 packs !!!! The last pack was my only chance to get one and guess what i had....a Christopher Lee/Saruman auto card !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dance Dance Dance Dance
I'll be posting my needs/haves soon in the trading section.

Just finished breaking my case:

4 sets of box toppers
4 sets of prismatics with 8 spare.

Autos:

Figwit
Aragorn (x2)
Gollum
Saruman
Eomer
Theoden
Pippin

(If anyone's got a spare Arwen or Bilbo to swap for the Aragorn, let me know)

Pretty pleased with this. I haven't collated the base sets yet, 'cause I'm going to wait until after I see the film!

Finished opening my two cases,now have severe headache from sorting the basic sets Smile.

The two cases yielded 36 basic sets,7 box topper sets and 2 extra 1 0f 2's,7 foil sets and 25 extra cards,and the following auto's

Case 1 Arwen x 2 Drool Drool
Aragorn Smile
Figwit
Sam
Bilbo
Pippin
Theoden (Blue Ink).

Case 2 Saruman x 2 Dance
Richard Taylor x 2
Gollum Smile
Arwen (can't get enough of Liv Big Grin)
Sam
Bilbo
Pippin
Eomer
Faramir

Three of the eight boxes in the second case had 2 auto's Elephant Sheep.

Both sarumans had a second auto (Arwen & Sam) and the third dual auto box was Bilbo/Eomer.

Very happy with the Breakdown,I am not usually this lucky.Hope I have not used it all up for when I get my Alias case Smile.

I was in two minds whether to get the ROTK set or not, but ended up getting two boxes from Ebay.

Box 1
Box Topper 2/2
Foils - 1,2,3,4,5,6
Auto - Aragorn Big Grin Big Grin - very pleased

Box 2
Box Topper 1/2 Big Grin usually I end up with the same box toppers
Foils - 1,2,7,8,9,10 Big Grin complete set of foils between the two boxes
Auto - Eomer Smile I'm pleased it was a different auto to the one in box 1 and different to the ones I've had from FOTR and TTT, but his auto has definitely got worse.
