I know I can't be the only one anxiously awaiting to hear what you pulled. Good luck and let us know the hopefully good results when you get a chance.
Nice pull on the Brosnan Miss Lizzy.

case 4

1 el 3 vl

Got my box - have2 more coming soon. Here's what was in Box #5073:
94 base cards, missing 5 cards
8 parrallels
8 extras

24 Dr No cards
2 Poster cards
2 Bond, James Bond
2 Gold girl cards
3 autos - all full bleed:
Patrick Bauchau
Frank McRae (L)
Burt Kwouk (VL)

If you are getting these, be aware they are just the odd numbered cards, the rest will be included in next set. The foil design of base cards has lots of gold foil, would have liked to see bigger image, but I do like the embossed 007 logo. The base parallels are not very attractive, would have preferred to see them in maybe silver foil or gun-metal, maybe numbered and 1 per box.

The inserts are really nice the GG Girl cards are really sharp, and the retro Dr No cards are like something out of the 1960's, just need a bubblegum smell to them. I've got 2 more boxes coming, and I realized it still won't be enough to complete the Dr No set.

Impressions
Whilst I am not mad keen on the front of the base set, the backs have some nice images, a lot of which I have not seen before. The other chase sets are very nice too, especially the Dr No set. It was great to see a whole set of cards dedicated to one single film. Makes a change!

Pleased to pull one EL (although I didn't recall it as EL until I checked later) considering some of the other breaks. Would have been good to pull any of the other main cast cards. Still, a fun set to open with all the variety of chase cards.

I don't buy much Bond, so I can't recall if other releases were the same, but I don't understand why all autographs cards are carrying L, VL and EL designations? I mean you can't pull 23 limited autographs from a case. These are the commons. If RA is calling every autograph limited (except for maybe 4 that seem to be showing up in the same ratios) it means that none should be considered limited to me, just VL and EL for those that are truly in fewer supply.

I think that the Limited, Very Limited, and Extremely Limited designations is RA's way of releasing numbers, not to comment on scarcity of a certain card within a case. EL's are less than 200, VL are 200-300, Limited are 300-500, and non-designated "normal cards" are 500+. That means one card could have 480 copies and another have 510 copies and be reactively the same in terms of scarcity and how many occur within a case, but have different designations.

With RA's new EL category and the overuse of the Limited category in releases with 3-4 autos a box, it's probably best just to do what you are doing and read "Limited" as "Common. I think that once autos became a fairly common part of a release, the designations had to change, and Limited doesn't mean something as valuable as it used to.

Broke two boxes today. Had no expectations, so I'm pretty happy. Nice to pull an EL, even though I all ready have the Thunderball Beswick and the WOB style Beswick in my collection





Going to try and complete the chase sets, so I updated my trade site and my trade lists to reflect the cards that I need from this set.
