Here's what I pulled out of my case.

Captain Pike: (tough to read the numbers on these):
3 full sets + extras of 1, 2, 3, 6, 8

Faces of Vina:
3 full sets + extras of 1, 4, 6

Quotable Expansion Cards:
2 full sets + lots of extras

Portrait Cards 1, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 15, 16, 17, 18

12 Black & White Expansion Cards

Delta Shield Cards 3 and 5

Autographs:
104 Carl Held
107 Lawrence Montaigne
108 Dick Durock
109 Robert Walker Jr
110 Kathryn Hays
111 France Nuyen
112 Joan Collins (Woo Hoo!)
115 David Soul x 2
116 John Crawford
117 Ned Romero
118 Peter Duryer x 2
120 Majel Barrett
121 Laurel Goodwin x 2
124 Beverly Washburn
128 Marianne Hill
129 Emily Banks
130 Victor Lundin x 2
131 Garrison True
134 Mary Rice
135 Richard Compton

Overall, I'm very happy with the case. Smile My only complaint is with the numbering on the Pike Cards. Had to pull out the magnifying glass to figure out cards 6, 8 and 9.

Wow, You got 3 of 4 Very Limited in 1 case. That's pretty amazing. I'd love to see if that common or not. Congrats.

the insignia badge cards are a really good idea for costume cards.

i like the backs of them, how it reminds me of 80's sets like Close encounters.

Great Job on the case breakdown! I wonder if more cases will have that many Very Limited auto cards?

Since I don't track breakdowns, this is the best I can do:

This was an interesting set. Very retro. The base set has some images I don't think we've seen on cards before. techno shots, cool ship shots and so on. I dunno why, but I love the card with the close-up of the sealed Talos V orders. It makes the nerd in me giggle.
The retro card back that makes into a puzzle is sweet. So 70ish I was looking for my stick of gum.
My fave set is the TOS Q set. I'm soft on that set, so an expansion set is cooool. Best part is, it's available in such nubmers, that it's really not going to be hard for even the casual collector to go ahead and pick it up and add it to his base set.
The Leaf exapnsion set is fiiine. Numbering system even tales over at 73. I was terribly bummed to read that the back and discover that the backs made sense. Had RA been truley commited to the idea of a Leaf set, they would have had an employee drop a little acid and then write the backs.
The badges set looks soooo good. They aren't real badges (how in the world would one find about 4000 badges, I dunno Wink But, as a girl with magpie tendancies, they are are gold and shinny and brightly colored.
The autographs follow in the TOS style, which pleases most people very much. Although a couple of images are questionable, I actually enjoy seeing the other actors in the shot, esp for lessor known characters, it gives them context.
Finally ya'll can get off my back in regards to Kathryn Hayes, as she finally shows up in this product Wink As do a few new faces, we were delighted to get..Robert Walker, Francis N.
We have two Nimoy items..auto'd costume card and auto card. I love the two Mirror sigs of Spock and Sulu.
I don't tend to follow closely the collation of product unless it's a massive swing one way or the other and I didn't have problems with any one card except for the Eugene card, which I only got one of in 10 cases, so I'll be looking to buy a few of those for master sets.
Oh, there weas more...portrait cards, incentives and so on, but that's enough babble for one day Smile

Got a fantastic box of these at the show today! I also got the binder with the supercool Walter Koenig autograph for about $30! Here are the inserts:

Quotable Expansion: 111, 112, 119, 121

Vina: FV1 and FV2

Captain Pike: CP5 and CP9

Portraits: Uhura

Insignia Patch: McCoy 099/350 Clap

and the Autographs:

Very pleased with this box as it will be the only one I can afford. Second Joan Collins autograph I have pulled from packs. The first was the animated version a few months ago.

I opened box #2972 today (it was supposed to be an Xmas present, but my wife let me open it when it came today Big Grin ) I got:

Star Trek Portraits PT6 Uhura
The Cage expansion #84
Vina #'s FV1, FV2
Captain Pike #'s CP4, 7, 9
Quotable TOS expansion #'s 111, 118, 122, 125

I only got one autograph card (and it was in my second to last pack), and I would complain, except that it was Joan Collins Metal

Obviously, I was hoping for a Roddenberry cut (who isn't?) but I'm happy with my Joan Collins. The only card I wanted more was Majel Barrett as Number One. I also purchased David Soul and Peter Duryea autographs on "the bay", and they arrived today, too. I may email Rittenhouse about the missing autograph, I may not bother. Haven't decided yet.

I love the base set -- I wish every set was as great looking as this one. Good job, Rittenhouse!

Congrats on pulling Joan Collins jason00 & Glim.
Really sorry about your bad luck manolito.

My 5 boxes are being held to ransom by Parcel Force Mad
I wondered why my parcel was taking so long.
I hope the wait (and the extra charges) end up being worth it.

Is this normal?

I opened a case of cards (12 boxes) and I got 24 'Vina' cards.

FV1 = 0
FV2 = 4
FV3 = 0
FV4 = 5
FV5 = 7
FV6 = 8

I would have thought the distrabution would be a lot more 'even'.... Anyone else find this?

Ajdedo 24 Vina cards per case is normal.
But not getting any complete set of the Vina cards is not.
I got 2 sets per case of the Vina cards.

I would ask RA if you could swap a couple of FV 5 and 6 for a couple of FV 1 and 3
