rl75: I saw your break over on Freedom Cardboard too! It was a fantastic box, and the Abbott & Costello is absolutely beautiful. Nice break, and congratulations on the pulls!

I want just about any auto/relic/prop/costume I can find.

I decided to buy one of the retail blaster boxes. I ended up with
Staci Keanan 091/250 Proof
Jane Russell 319/500 Memorobilla card

I was hoping to get a Gina Carano card but no such luck. I think I might buy another one of these boxes.

I picked up my 3rd and 4th hobby boxes today. Here's the results:

Box 1:

Jane Russell cinema stars director's cut auto #ed to 100
Electra Avellan auto #ed to 50 (Crazy Babysitter Twin!)
Telly Savalas Hollywood Legends Material #ed to 500
Kendall "Da Spyder" Grove ring kings auto/material #ed to 500

Box 2:

Elisabeth Rohm tv stars auto #ed to 100
Gary Cooper Hollywood Legends Material Golden Era #ed to 50
Bai Ling auto #ed to 250
Louis Mandylor auto #ed to 380

Very nice first box followed by a very lame second box. The second box was the 1st time I've ever been disappointed with an Americana box.

I just bought one more hobby box:

Marisol Nichols auto/material #ed to 25
Geoff Stults auto/material #ed to 25
Anthony Quinn hollywood legends material #ed to 500
Christina Applegate material #ed to 100

That was my second straight disappointing box of Americana 2. I was very surprised I pulled the Applegate material, as I don't believe I've seen anybody else pull a regular materials card out of Americana 2 hobby boxes.

Box 1:
