I bought ten dealed boxes off a dealer at a good price but did not get one auto or sketch, major frustration. Interesting point about the numbered stickers as none of my boxes had those on. If it really is that easy to pick the auto boxes I would be very hesitant to purchase any more boxes.

As a dealer I wasn't aware of this and I have opened over 300 boxes in the past.

This is not good for collectors if their dealers happen to know this! Eek

However, you may want to note that the Sketch cards are inserted 1 in every 48 boxes!!
And auto cards roughly 1 in 20 boxes!!

These were produced for the mass high street market for kids and weren't necessarily made for the hobby collector.

Now if you want some Gerry Anderson autos for a good price then pick up some Thunderbird boxes.
An auto in every other box....bargain.

These are now getting low on the ground and supplies should dry up by the end of 2004 so buy now to avoid disappointment Wink

Just received my clearance box in the mail & it has a #2 on the bottom. Roll Eyes

Does anyone know if sticker #2 determines whether its a sketch or auto or ?? And I'm gonna be bummed out if its neither one!!

I purchased 40 boxes from Ebay just before last Xmas (they were sold in lots of 20 for £49.99 if anyone saw them) they were all returns from retailers, a lot of them were just full of packets rather than being counted out to 36, one of them actually contained 81 packs!

Lots of base sets!
Lots of SIG Card sets

and...

3 Captain Ocre autographs
4 Captain Scarlet autographs
3 Sketch cards

I only bought the boxes for the sketches, they were of an SPV driving along a road, SPV narrowly avoiding explosion and an Angel Interceptor flying upwards. Will post scans when I get a chance Smile

Just finished opening 24 more boxes of this....

I got 1 x Sketch card only, and that came in the 5th pack of the first box! So to follow that with nearly 1000 more packs with nothing... pretty harrowing! Still pleased with the sketch though. SPV chased by Mysteron rings
