Blakes 7 Series 2 (Unstoppable Cards, 2014)
Broke a case I got at the NEC with mixed results. Case was numbered 0121-0132 but box number 0121 was replaced by box number 0118 Confused .

Each box apart from one had a base set and all had three of the nine foil chase set plus the following :

Box 0132 Josette Simon, Steven Pacey, Michael Briant(first series style), Jan Chappell, Costume C2.

0131 Nothing, not even a base set Frown .

0130 Michael Troughton, Brian Croucher, Gareth Thomas, printing plate.

0129 Glynis Barber, Damien Thomas.

0128 Simon, Briant, Franklin.

0127 D Thomas, Troughton.

0126 Brian Blessed( first series style), Pacey.

0125 Franklin, Pacey, Simon, Briant, sketch by Jay Pangan III auto by Paul Darrow Dance .

0124 Blessed.

0123 Chappell, Troughton, costume C2, printing plate.

0122 D Thomas, Franklin.

0118 D Thomas, Briant.

Nice to get the sketch but disappointed nowhere near a full set of autos.

Just now going through the base cards and there are quite a lot of miscuts Frown . Still able to make up plenty of sets but it's a pain sorting them out.

Second case boxes broke more evenly but more damaged cards Frown .Case numbered 0625 - 0636.

0636 D Thomas, Franklin, costume C2.

0635 Simon, Croucher.

0634 Barber, Pacey.

0633 Briant, Troughton, G Thomas, printing plate.

0632 Blessed, D Thomas.

0631 Simon, Franklin.

0630 Pacey, Keating (damaged Frown ).

0629 D Thomas, Briant, Troughton, Costume C2.

0628 Keating/Pacey dual, Blessed, Franklin.

0627 Simon, Chappell.

0626 Briant, Pacey, costume C2.

0625 Croucher, Troughton, printing plate.

Very disappointed not to get a full set of the autos from two cases missing Paul Darrow and two of the three duals as well as the triple.

Also 10 of the autos had varying sizes of creases that looked to have been caused either in the packing or printing process.

OK just broke a case, disappointing doesn't even cut it. To summarise, no multiple auto card, not a single printing plate, no sketch, and even missing a Croucher auto for a complete set. The state of some of the normal basic cards leave a lot to be desired too. Not so much processed as mangled!?! Any way, breakdown for case 1597 - 1608
#1597 F6, 7 and 8. Autos Franklyn, Simon and Briant.
#1598 F3, 4, and 5. Autos Chappell, Damien Thomas.
#1599 F1, 2 and 9. Autos Troughton, Blessed.
#1600 F6, 7 and 8. Autos Simon, Gareth Thomas, Pacey.
#1601 F2, 4 and 5 Autos Briant, Franklyn.
#1602 F1, 3 and 9 Auto Damien Thomas, Keating. Costume 2.
#1603 F6, 7 and 8. Auto Troughton. (YEP ONE SINGLE SOLITARY HIT)
#1604 F3, 4 and 5. Autos Briant, Pacey, Simon.
#1605 F1, 2 and 9. Autos Darrow, Barber. Costume 2.
#1606 F5, 6 and 7. Autos Damian Thomas, Blessed.
#1607 F2, 3 and 4. Autos Pacey, Troughton.
#1608 F1, 8 and 9. Autos Simon, Briant.
So 1 x 1 hit box, 7 x 2 hit boxes, and only 4 3 hit boxes!?! Not the best breakdown ever.
Autos 1 Gareth, 1 Paul, 1 Michael, 1 Jan, 1 Glynis, 2 Franklyn, 4 Simon, 3 Pacey, 3 Troughton, 4 Briant, 2 Blessed, 3 Damian Thomas. 2 costume #2. 4 complete foil sets.
EDIT: make that 3 foil sets. One of the 3's turned out to be another 2 so short one 3 for a full fourth set. *shruggs*
