Eckaslike, is that a Brit slang word? If so, what does it mean? Smile

Great pulls from your boxes! Thumb Up

Found a box of these on ebay at a price I couldn't pass up and was pleased with the pulls. I already had all the autographs in this set but wanted to see if I could pull the Nimoy. I pulled the following autographed cards:
A50 Julie Newmar
A43 Jack Klugman
A62 Gloria Pall
A45 Russell Johnson
The weird thing about my pulls is that I have now opened 3 boxes and in all 3 boxes I pulled a Newmar and a Russell Johnson. I could think of worse to pull but what are the odds of this happenning with close to 30 different possible autographs? I still haven't pulled a hall of fame card or sketch card yet in any of the boxes.

I found another box on eBay and it had been a pretty long time since I had opened a box of Twilight Zone. For the 1st time in the 4 boxes I opened I didn't pull a Newmar or a Johnson, but I think I did okay. I pulled all but the Russell Johnson Stars cards. I pulled the H4 James Best Hall of Fame card and at least 2 full sets. My autograph cards were as follows:
A42 Jonathan Winters
A43 Jack Klugman
A44 Leonard Nimoy
A48 Micheal Constantine
If I had to get 3 numbered autographs in a row I don't think I could have picked better than what I ended up with. With the exception of the archive box of season 4 that I opened I am sure this is the best box of TZ that I have opened.

Thanks! I pulled the autographs from the packs and put them under the Star cards to look who I got later. When I got to the 4th autograph in the box I decided to look at it and it was the Michael Constantine. I figured I had continued my streak of bad luck with unopened boxes. The next 3 I looked at (first 3 pulled) changed my tune entirely. Those 3 are perhaps the best 3 autos in the entire 3rd series. Even though I have all of them already I am still quite excited.

Those are gigantic all right. The Nimoy is one of the last ones I need for my set.

Nice to see a TZ box recently opened. I actually got one earlier this year but forgot to post it. I was hoping for the Nimoy, obviously, and also the Dean Stockwell. The best autograph was Julie Newmar which I needed, plus there was an Ann Francis Hall of Fame card, so I was happy with the box, which wasn't hugely expensive, especially considering 4 autographs (plus a chance for Hall of Fame cards) really are double the "hits" of most other single boxes. I'm down to less than 10 autographs needed for a complete collection (most of them from Series III, which I somehow missed completely when it came out. For Series 4, I just bought an archive box and was done with it!).

Nice pulls, except for the Nimoy future generations will never have heard of these stars. I asked my son and he had no clue who they were.
