Sounds like the box I had gotten. However I had a Ben auto in mine as well.

I seem to remember that as a general rule for season 5 boxes if you pulled a Slayer's Gift there was no auto and if you got an auto there was no Slayer's Gift. I only recall hearing about 1 or 2 boxes that had both and I don't think I ever heard of 1 that had neither. All 3 full boxes I got had an auto and I never did pull a SG.

I don't think that's correct. I purchased a case of Season 5. I did get a master set. I believe I had a total of 3 SG cards. Unless I just had a good case...LOL

That sounds about right. cases were 10 boxes and SG cards were 1:3. I think you might have beaten the odds a bit on the autos by getting a master run (did you get 1 of each or did you also get an extra or 2?) since I think 7 was the norm for a case but of course things varied a bit before the 1 per box guarantee.

When this product originally released, I got a box that had four, yes four, autographs in it! I wouldn't lie about such a thing, I even had a witness. It was unbelievable, because at the time every box did not contain an autograph. After opening two other boxes, I had every autograph except the Amber Benson. Probably one of the best boxes I have ever opened!

Well, my box produced some weird results.
Cards not cut properly, 8 inserts in total (4 of each) and an X Files Season 6/7 internet promo card in a pack. Confused I hope that wasn't in place of something cool.

My box:

2 Base Sets
BL2 - need that one
B2, B3, B5, B5
K1, K2, K2, K3

That was certainly an odd box, IMO.

Wow, that IS an odd box... can't really complain with all of those inserts- esp the 1:17 packs ones!! Not bad though, but I hope you didn't miss out on an auto!

when i bought my box way back when, i pulled a slayers gift card and an auto in the box. mind you that was back when i was justa buffy fan, and not a trading card nut like i am now, so i didnt realise what i was getting. 1:3 boxes is a cool ratio!!

That does sound like an odd box Shake Head. You can contact Inkworks Customer Relations at info@inkworks.com to find out how to replace any damaged or miscut cards.

A stray promo card finds its way into packs now and then when it is printed on the same print form/press sheet. Sometimes one or two cards accidently slip into the wrong pile when the form is cut into individual cards. I don't know if it makes you feel any better, but the promo card would have been in place of a base card that printed on the same form; not a bonus card which would have printed on a different form.

I didn't even come back to look in this topic. Oops.

Thanks for replying. I didn't worry too much about the mis-cut cards. I've already Ebayed the 2 sets from the box (mentioning some mis-cut cards), so they're gone, now.

The last odd box I had was a season 7. I didn't make one base set out of the entire box, lol. I've managed to trade for what I need, so I'm not fussed over the occasional strange box Smile

Thanks Smile

Just received a box I bought off eBay. No auto, but still quite good...

Base Sets - ? (Quite a few damaged base cards)
Protectors of The Key - K1, K2, K3, K7, K9
Big Bad Crush - B1, B2, B5
Slayer's Gift - SG-1
Box Loader - BL2 (Damaged)

So there were some damaged cards, but overall a pretty decent box I think Smile

Picked up a box of Season 5 at the Canadian Fan Expo back in August here in Toronto - have had it sitting around, and as I seem to be stressing over the hobby (not having the time for the most part) it seemed like a good time to pull it out, sit back and relax by opening something out of the norm...

K2, K6, K7, K8
