And as I said before....

FV3 = 0
FV4 = 5

2x Delta Patch Card

All in all not bad. I'm quite happy with the Nimoy. I would have liked to get a Barrett or Collins somewhere in the mix, but I got a black permanent marker instead. (Someone left one in my case).

Oh yeah, and I got 13 Portrait cards in total. One box had 2.

I have 6 more boxes coming soon, hopefully that will fill in the blanks. I cross my fingers for the missing autos :-) What's the chance of getting a Barrett, Collins, Crawford and Nuyen in 6 boxes?? I'll let you know. :-)

Congrats ajdedo on your case break! Clap Well done on pulling a Nimoy autograph card. Good luck with the 6 boxes, I hope you pull the auto cards you need!

By the way, hammer made a good suggestion about contacting RA to do a swap for the missing Vina cards.

Well, in a couple of hours I'll receive my case. Wish me luck! Smile

RAJ,

Sorry to hear about you autos, I feel for you, and you got lots of doubles too. Those cases just kill me. On the bright side though, you did get a Collins. I bought a TOS Season 1 Collins for $700 about a year ago, I'm not sure I would have done that had I known she was signing again, in not animated form. It's the price of a case !!!

P.S. I like your Marianne Hill varients, they're nice :-)

That's life. I got the correct amount cards, so while I can whinge, I've no real cause for complaint.

I was fortunate to pack-pull a Collins (and a Montalban) auto from TOS 1, too.

I posted the Hill autos because of the 1-line/2-line difference. I know some people like to see the variants.

0 Gene Roddenberry Tribute card
0 Gene Roddenberry Cut Sig card
A strange box, it beat the odds with one extra Vina, Portrait, Cage and auto card more than stated. And one auto is a Limited but still no Very Ltd or Holy Grail cards
Managed a full base set this time but card 26 is a VERY poor picture of Landru


Box # 7249 opened 16/11/2006
4 Quotable ST:TOS Expansion cards #113, 114, 123, & 124
3 Captain Pike cards CP3, 6 & 8
2 The Faces of Vina cards FV2 & 5
1 Star Trek Portraits PT1
1 Leaf Expansion “The Cage” cards #82

0 Bridge Crew Delta Shield patch cards
0 Gene Roddenberry Tribute card
0 Gene Roddenberry Cut Sig card
Got the stated odds this time and each box seems to be getting progressively better so fingers crossed on getting a Delta Shield card and a Very ltd auto in the next one. Still praying for a visit by The Great Bird Of The Galaxy.

Box # 7253 opened 16/11/2006
4 Quotable ST:TOS Expansion cards #112, 117, 119 & 126
3 Captain Pike cards CP1, 5 & 9

2 Autograph Cards A108 DICK DURDOCK & A137 RHODES REASON
0 Bridge Crew Delta Shield patch cards
0 Gene Roddenberry Tribute card
0 Gene Roddenberry Cut Sig card
Nothing exciting, just common autos and still no Delta shield card. C’mon last box, don’t let me down.

Box # 7255 opened 16/11/2006
4 Quotable ST:TOS Expansion cards 111, 119, 121 & 122
3 Captain Pike cards CP3, 5 & 8
2 The Faces of Vina cards FV2 & 8

2 Autograph Cards A104 CARL HELD & 106 JASON WINGREEN (again)
0 Bridge Crew Delta Shield patch cards
0 Gene Roddenberry Tribute card
0 Gene Roddenberry Cut Sig card
Like a fickle lover, they tempt me with there charms yet when it’s time to get serious but then get a headache. Well these boxes had a HEADACHE!!!
It’s my own fault, I get my self worked up, caressing every box, every pack, feeling the softness of the wrapper, wondering what delicious secrets it has waiting to be uncovered as I carefully undress the cards for my eyes to feast on their delights.

(is it me or is it getting hot in here)



Summery of my 5 Boxes
Number of base sets = 7 (each with both versions of card #58) + 163 asst singles
Number of Quotable Exp cards 20 – 3 short of a set with 5 duplicates
Number of Captain Pike sets 1 + 5 duplicates
Number if Vina cards 11. no FV 1 or 3 just like ajdedo. For a 6-card set I expected to get a set out of 5 boxes
Total number of Portrait cards 6 one more than the stated odds though includes 1 duplicate
Total number of 1967 Leaf expansion cards 6 one more than the stated odds though includes 1 duplicate
Total number of Delta Shield cards 0 Very disappointed about this, hoped to get at least one
Number of Very Ltd autos 0 again Very disappointed about this, hoped to get at least one
Number of Limited autos, just 2
Number of Common autos 8 plus 1 duplicate

Your right there mate, Thems the breaks as they say.
I dreamt of pulling the G Roddenberry Cut Sig but realistically all I really expected ( and wanted) was a 1 very ltd auto and a Delta Shield patch card. I was let down this time. Happens all to frequently

Out of curiosity is this common ? Should there be a very limited auto in every RA case ?

unfortunately it does happen (cases without very limited autos) Frown

5 boxes is a gamble, I think RA is pretty good with their distrabution. I bet the remainding 7 boxes had the 2 shield pacth cards and 1 or 2 of the very ltd. Unfortunately you didn't get them.

I'm taking a gamble on 1/2 a case too. I'm still waiting for my 6 boxes.

Well, whether I got the 'good' boxes is a matter of perspective. Here's the breakdown of my 6 boxes....

Box 0577

DS2 Patch Card Spock - 202/350
A129 - Emily Banks
A107 - Lawrence Montaigne

Box 3681

A116 - John Crawford (L)
A130 - Victor Lundin

Box 3687

A128 - Marianne Hill
A135 - Richard Compton

Box 3688

DS7 Patch Card Uhura - 283/350
A107 - Lawrence Montaigne
A123 - Bruce Hyde

Box 3695

A113 - Brian Tochi
A115 - David Soul

Box 8184

A118 - Peter Duryea
A130 - Victor Lundin

All in all the autographs were pretty uneventfull. I had all but 1 of them from my previous case, and nothing to get excited about. The only thing keeping these 6 boxes from going the way of Boldlygone's is that I got 2 Delta Shield Cards. That was slightly beating the odds on 6 boxes, and I can't complain. I was really looking forward to a Ltd. or V.Ltd that I needed, but I guess it wasn't going to happen this time. Anyone want to trade ???

The other thing to note is this. Out of 18 boxes (1.5 cases) I got 36 VINA cards. The breakdown is this ->

FV1 = 0
FV2 = 9
FV3 = 0
FV4 = 6
FV5 = 11
FV6 = 10

What the #@%& is up with that? Is there a massave shortage of #1 and #3 ?? Or has someone else, somewhere else, sitting on dozens of them?? I'd love to know what other people's VINA count are.....

You haven't had any luck with thise VINA cards. Hope RA can sort it out for you
