I was organizing some of my packs/boxes/etc...last night and I noticed I had some leftover packs in one box. I decided to open them knowing I would get anything special. Boy was I wrong. I opened my first pack and found a Christopher Lee auto. Yippee. So I was wondering did anyone out there receive 2 autos in a Wave 1 ROTK hobby box? When stuff like this happens it makes collecting cards that much more of an enjoyable experience.
Cheers - Peter

I just opened a box that I got a fair price on, but was very disappointed when I discovered no auto in the box Mad Confused Shake Head The colation was terrible in this box, too.

Base Sets: 1
Foils: 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 10
Box Topper: 1 of 2
Auto: NONE Shake Head

I'll try contacting Topps, but I doubt they'll do anything since there are no guaranteed number of inserts per box.

Wave 2 boxes have better odds and most will contain 2 autos
