My box came today and I'll be opening it up later.

I've started this thread so that we can share what goodies we get.

Best of luck everyone !

Have opened the box and undone the middle pack- which from what I've got out of it probably contains all the sketch cards & autos. This is what I got:

Gold Member Card 87 (which I'm assuming is the box number)- added later: yes it is, it's also on the bottom!
C.S.I. Casino Chip (Yearbox exclusive)
C.S.I. Casino Chip card 87/500

Autos:
C.S.I. - Anthony E Zuiker (which I think are in all boxes) & Louise Lombard (Sofia Curtis)
New Avengers - Brian Clemens (which I already have)

Sketch Cards:
C.S.I. - Cat Staggs Dance
New Avengers - Purdey by ? (will post it later so someone can let me know)

Costume card:
Avengers - Honor Blackman/Cathy Gale Tabard 87/250 Dance

Huge stack of promos & previews

I haven't explored the base sets yet and a Dr Who sketch still eludes me, but I love this box and it's a great idea. With the 10% discount card I will have saved the amount it cost by the end of the year as well! It's beautifully presented and was worth the wait. I'm happy with the 2 sketches I got in my box, 1-4 is advertised so it could have been worse, but the unexpected bonus was the costume card. I pulled an Honor Blackman auto from some Complete James Bond packs so it will sit nicely, if not strictly harmoniously, alongside that.

Thanks to Barrie for a great idea, and an extra opportunity to pick up some great cards.

Hmm, what makes you think the CSI Zuiker will be in all boxes? Did you get more than 1 box?

That Staggs sketch alone will account for more than half the cost of the case already!! Thumb Up

I thought I read this somewhere - but I clearly must have imagined it! Red Face
I only got 1 box.

Dalekfan: Nice box!
Great auto & sketches.

From what I can tell the box number seems to have been aligned to the inserts wherever possible.

I'd not come across the Blackman costume card before & was wondering if it might be exclusive to the Yearbox.

Have you opened any of the 'base set' packs yet?

My Purdey sketch is by Tom Hodges.

Along with a Cat Staggs, I've not done badly at all.

Will post some pics later.

Newbie to the site. Long time collector.

Happy to say that my order is on the way. As to those that are complaining, I'd be damn happy to get any of the Man from UNCLE cards. Having tried to buy them from Ebay on several occasions.

My only criticism is that I wished I'd known about it much sooner as I could have saved a fortune in some of my other purchases. IMHO the yearbox is a bargain at the price. Will post breakdown once I receive it.

Yes, I reckon if you are a Man From Uncle fan then you ARE getting a good deal...

Well done on a nice sketch, dis68!!! Sorry for you it was only the one though.

Well box breakdown for box 94.

4 packs at side as already reported.

centre pack -
10%card # 94
Man from UNCLE promo set A 855 of 999 (some cards extremely badly cut)
Man from UNCLE promo set B 878 0f 999 ( again, some cards extremely badly cut)
Man from UNCLE promo PR1 (extremely badly cut)
CSI Miami preview with Anthony Zuiker auto
Diana Rigg Gold Facsimile
Hammer Promo
2000AD promo
Monty Python promo
Doctor Who Web1 promo
Blakes 7 promo (chuffed!!!)
Highlander promo p1 and p2 (chuffed!!!)
Harryhausen promo
Carnivale promo
Dragon Booster !?!?!?
New Avenger foil #5 and 12
Doctor Who foil #9 and 13
What is the point of putting these in when there is a complete set already in the box?!?!?!?
CSI chip card #94 of 500
Professional preview
Audrey Hepburn preview

The above seems to be consitant in the boxes so far

So the extras I got were

New Avengers Steed suit costume card (already have)
Avengers Cathy Gale Tabard costume #94 of 500
CSI costume Greg Sanders shirt (no interest)
2 New Avengers autograph card A6 Keith Barron and A7 John Castle (already have)
Finally one sketch card New Avengers Purdey B/W pencil by Cynthia Cummens. (quite nice, but dissappointing)

So one or two surprises, within ratio, if lower end but did ok with the additional costume and auto card. If not altogether happy, certainly content. And extremely pleased to finally have an UNCLE set.
