My box breakdown from the one I got yesterday.

Base set of 99.
Poster Covers 1-12, and # 8, 10, 11 extra
Comic Covers 1-11, 13

No autographs
Insignia Patches: I1, I4
Duel Sketch By Walton
Cyan Printing Plate #58


One down side to the whole box, sixteen cards were cut way off center and I don't know if I have a complete set. I may have to contact UpperDeck about that and see what they have to say.

My four boxes arrived today, and I am enjoying this break as I pulled something great! First up are these:


Then two of the three sketchs:


Last, the BIG pull:


For some of you who know me, Kate Bradley is my friend and I have only ever pulled one of her cards, so this was big. I sent this pic right off to Kate:


It was really cool to pull one of her cards, as she only did 18 in total. I also got all 6 patch cards, only thing I did not pull was an auto or cut comic card, but that's ok, I'm not complaining! Smile

Congrats Bob. That is really cool that you pulled one of Kate's card, especially with their being so few of them, like you said.

Graham~ That's about as joyous as Bob's look gets. Ha ha.

ordered 1 box because I just couldn't get myself to skip the set completely

2 patches, 1 costume card. 1 base set thankfully and I think 1 set of chase cards. And I'm done with UD products until the Avengers movie I believe unless boxes fall through the floor which is unlikely.

I too tried one box against my better judgement, but got a decent sketch of, I guess Peggy Carter, along with the costume and patch cards. I will not be pushing my luck again.

But getting two patches in the same box is just poor because they are manufactured. If they were off the actual costumes they would have some value, but as a created chase set I don't think they should be treated as a premium hit, which is what UD did here.

Agree 100% Raven about the patches. Topps does similar patch cards for their retail baseball card box blasters and they're cool because they are all retro team logos. But these are... a poor excuse of a 'hit' in a box in my opinion.

Congrats on pulling a sketch! Hope it's a nice card!

My usual string of luck - I got three patches - some real hits ...is this typical of UD? - Someone I know did get two patches and a sketch card - So I guess UD feels these manufactured patch cards are worth 15 to 20 each? - right....

I also only opened one box. I got a Peggy Carter beige M-3 costume card, and two patch cards. My other box is safely stored away in a closet with all my other misc. unopened boxes.

My (put your deity of choice here)!, I wonder what I have in all those sealed boxes. Sometimes the temptation to rip them all apart is quite strong.

That really puts all those scratchy damn repeated 'sketches' from other releases to shame. For shame!

At the rate this product is being busted, we might have a very long wait. Wink
