Cursed? CURSED??? Twak Twak Twak Big Grin

That card is the SHIZZLE. If I had my druthers, a nice solid Eomer in armor single card would have been better in the finality of the pull. This card is GREAT, but as you know, incomplete.
The other side is quite nice as well. May be hard for someone to part with.

Those first three boxes I broke were great. Good luck with your boxes.

Well, my gf and I decided to splurge and bought three of these boxes: one for me, one for her and one for us to split. Seemed like most boxes broken here got two sketches per box so we felt pretty confident.

Sooo, the first box we split, figuring we would each get one of the sketches.

WRONG. Not a single sketch in the box. All three boxes were hobby boxes. After that disappointment, we opened the other two to see if they were equally bad.

My box had only one sketch:



I was pretty underwhelmed.

Then she opens her box. She did very well, getting two sketches:




Very glad that she did well, but still very annoyed about the no-sketch box. I doubt Topps will do anything about it as I can't prove that I got nothing. Still have the box, wrappers and all the cards, but since we bought them at a card show, no receipt. Combined with a terrible, no autograph box of Battlestar Galactica today, I think I have finally broken my box buying habit.

What Cat said... the unknown is O'Neill... Very nice too!

The Gandalf by Mitchell is QUITE nice! I have a different Aragorn by Rood (a profile) - like yours better... LOVE the Dillon & the Kayanan - GREAT pull! Treebeard by Amy is fabulous! Tom does a great job with the monsters, I just don't like them - BAD EVIL ORCSES! The McCrea is great too!

All in all - well done! Nice additions to your collection!
