Alias 2 (Inkworks)
Here's how my case broke.

2 basic sets in every box.

4 Box Topper sets.

2 Undercover Foil 9 card sets and 6 extra's.

2 Seeking Sydney sets and 4 extra's.

1 Case card.

All 12 auto's.

8 of 10 Pieceworks,missing PW1 and PW7,extra's of PW3,PW4,PW6,and PW8.

It's a beautiful set all round and the collation was excellent.I was amazed(and relieved to get a Jennifer Garner Smile ) to have no auto duplicates and be only missing one of the common pieceworks.I noticed that all the Undercover cards ran consecutively(so if you got U4 your other one would always be U3 or U5).

My only gripe is that other than PW4 the pieceworks are very bland.I would have liked to have seen some of those gorgeous PW1,2,and 3 extra thick cards available to the ordainary collector via redemptions in the boxes.

The way they have been distributed by multi case incentive means that the vast majority will have gone to dealers and only the very well off or the very crazy will buy them at the prices they are sure to command.

Overall though it's the best set Inkworks has done,already looking forward to Season 3 and those new Buffy sets Alan has planned(although my wallet has run off to hide Big Grin)

After being sooooooooooo impressed with the Season 1 set, I decided to invest in two boxes of the season 2 cards. Here's the breakdown:

Box 1
BL3
PW8 (Jack's Jacket)
A9 Vaughn (Michael Vartan)
SS1
U8 & U9


Box 2
BL1
another PW8 (Jack's Jacket)
A19 Sark (David Anders)
SS5

Nice set again, although it reminded me of an X-Files set from a couple of years ago.

Sadly still no Jennifer Garner auto

Hi All Wave

Well, I retardedly started a duplicate of this thread tonight and claimed to be the first one to post their box Roll Eyes! Anyway, rather than make you look for it, here's how mine went down....

2 Base Sets
Small amount of extras
#SS6
#U8 and U9
#BL 1(Jack/Family Deceptions)
Carl Lumbly auto.
Geisha Girl Pieceworks

As I stated in my mis-post, Inkworks deserves a huge round of applause for a great looking, high quality set! The box is pretty darn nice as well, sooooo...... Clap Clap Clap Clap
