Went a little nuts with this release since I love the show so much and was hoping to pull one of the main cast autos, especially Katie Cassidy who plays Laurel Lance on the show. I didn't get her but I did OK on my boxes-I haven't had a chance to collate my base sets yet.

Box 1:

A8 Colin Donnell as Tommy Merlyn
CB2(Laurel-yay!) CB15
Bronze: 7, 20, 47, 69, TR2, CB13
CCC2, CCC5
CC1, CC6
TR4, TR8
M6 Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen
Gold: 24

Box 2:
A22 Jarod Joseph as Alan Durand
CB14, CB17
Bronze: 19 30 48 89 TR9 CB10
CCC2, CCC5
CC1 CC6
TR3 TR7
M4 Willa Holland as Thea Queen
Gold 80 CB14

Box 3:
A19 Alex Kingston as Dinah Lance
CB7, CB15
Bronze: 2 13 50 83 TR6 CB13
CCC1 CCC6
CC3 CC5
TR2 TR6
M13 Colin Donnell as Tommy Merlyn
Gold 60

Happy with the Colin and Alex autos and the wardrobes, am definitely wanting more and especially more main cast autos.

So I went into my job today intending to buy myself another box of Arrow, when my coworker decided to buy it for me and here's what was inside:

CB1, CB4
Bronze: 16, 32, 64, 85, CB3, TR1
CCC1, CCC6
CC4, CC6
TR1, TR9

oh and-

A2: Katie Cassidy as Laurel Lance!!!!!

Might be my best birthday pull ever from a card box.

I might have to try for a master set of autographs from this set. Smile

To say I am addicted to this set would be an understatement- I got another box tonight(my seventh) and here's what I got:

A18a: Jessica de Gouw as Helena Bertinelli(which I already have...)
CB2 CB11
Bronze: 11, 45, 67, 77, CB18, TR2
CCC3 CCC5
CC1 CC3
TR4 TR8
M1 Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen(already have as well)
Gold TR4(1/40)
Printing Plate for Card #8 in Black.

Not a bad break even though I aleady have both of the major hits.

I opened my box today and got:

A18a - Jessica De Gouw
M17 - Laurel Lance
Cyan Printing Plate for Card #40 Clap
TR3, TR7, TR9 (bronze)
CB04 (bronze, CB08, CB17
CC1, CC6
CCC2, CCC4
1 base set

The set is really nice, especially the character bios. I like the horizontal base cards (the vertical have too much border) and I love my first ever printing plate!

Got one more box of Arrow(I can't stop...it's my new favorite show) here's what I got:

A18B: Jessica de Gouw as the Huntress Smile
CB3, CB13
Bronze: 19, 30, 48, 59, CB14, TR5
CCC3 CCC5
CC1 CC3
TR1 TR6
M17 Katie Cassidy as Laurel Lance Costume Card

Not too shabby. I definitely want to open more boxes as I am still missing 11 autographs in the set and a ton of costumes, but maybe I'll do the rest piecemeal at this point.

I opened two boxes of Arrow Season 1.

First box:
1 base set
Character bio CB06 and CB16
Training TR5 and TR7
Comic Covers CC4 and CC6
Comic Covers Cryptomium style CCC1 and CCC6
Parallels: base set 18, 44, 63, 69, Training TR4, Character bio CB09, gold parallel CB05 #07/40
Wardrobe card M14, Moira Queen
Autograph A21, Michael Rowe as Floyd Lawton

Second box:
Character bio CB076 and CB15
Training TR2 and TR6
Comic Covers CC2 and CC5
Comic Covers Cryptomium style CCC2 and CCC4
Parallels: base set 57, 74, 84, 86, Training TR6, Character bio CB13, gold parallel 255 #15/40
Wardrobe card DM3, Malcolm Merlyn and Tommy Merlyn
Autograph A17, Chin Han as Frank Chen

The second box did not have a base set in it. It is short by 12 cards.

I am not a big fan of parallel sets these days, but I do like the two different versions of the comic covers chase set.

This is my very first time buying trading cards! I always looked at them in passing and thought "eh, what's the point?" And then I bought a box of Arrow Season One because I love the show and I had some tax money left, and ... uh ... I really want to buy another one.

So suffice it to say that I get it now Wink Still don't know all the jargon (just learned about group breaks-- cool) but I'll try my best...

My pulls:

1x Base Set
Bronze: 15, 75, 80, 87

Character Bios: CB02, CB06, CB11, CB18
Gold: CB02 (Laurel Lance! yay!), 23/40; CB18 (Walter Steele-- it looks gold, but it's unnumbered? someone care to help me? haha)

Training: TR4, TR5, TR7

Comic Covers: CC2, CC4
Cryptomium: CCC1, CCC3 (these are cool)

Wardrobe: M11 (John Barrowman as Malcolm Merlyn, nice!)

Autograph: A10 (Celina Jade as Shado-- I kind of yelped when I saw this)

Printing Plate: Yellow, M12 Smile

All in all, very enjoyable. Kind of a money sink but I think it's worth it when it comes to memorabilia like Merlyn's tie. Honestly a highlight of my week, if not the highlight.

So this is Box 9 for me I realize, but I may have to stop soon as prices are starting to creep up on boxes. Here's what I pulled:

CB2, CB15
Bronze: 6, 18, 66, 88, CB3, TR6
CCC1, CCC3
CC1, CC6
TR4, TR8
M20 Byron Mann as Yao Fei
Gold 10

and

A6: Paul Blackthorne as Quentin Lance!

Very happy to pull another short print auto.

Now to figure out where to go next with the set, as I am still missing four of the Short Print autos, a ton of costume cards and a few of the common autos.

Bronze: 5, 28, 46, 78, CB6, TR5

Box 11:

Not a complete loss, since I got a new costume card and some new inserts out of it. Here's what I got:

A13: Byron Mann as Yao Fei
CB5, CB14
Bronze: 8, 28, 34, 71, CB8, TR3
CCC2, CCC4
CC3, CC5

I think I will try and do one more box and call it a day, but Buffy will need to happen first.
