Thanks..... :-)

I may have been more verbose somewhere in an earlier thread. Wink But here's what I saw, by case type:

( 4 )  DE1 + Dumbledore-Ginny-Junior-Maxime
( 8 )  DE1 + Fleur-Cho-Junior-Senior
( 8 )  DE2 + Dumbledore-Padma-Parvati-Ginny
( 5 )  Fleur + Cho-Parvati-Senior-Maxime
( 2 )  Quad + Padma-Parvati-Senior-Ginny
( 4 )  Dan + Padma-Parvati-Ginny-Maxime
--( 6 )  Five "Low" Autos - Cho-Padma + 3 others

The last group was a bit more variable, but always excluded Daniel, Quad, Dumbledore, or Death eaters, but instead had Cho+Padma and 3 of the others.

It was my theory that this group was part of a "chance for a Quad" cluster. If each of the clusters had the same number of cases, then one of the six clusters had a Quad card in part of the run and a selection of five "leftover" autos in the rest of the cases.

So if I found a Radcliffe in one of my boxes, I wouldn't expect to find a Quad elsewhere in the case if I kept opening boxes. But because of the last group, you can't get your hopes up for finding a Quad later in your case, just because you already found a Ginny and a Senior.

Ha, that's funny. It seems that until you pull 'the big card', you can never be sure....

I may play - "guess what's in the case" by posting the contents of each box, one at a time, as I open them.

Have you discovered any pattern to the distrabution of prop and costume cards in the cases?

Okay people, So here's MY story. :-)

I bought 8 boxes. As far as I know, these boxes may or may not have come from the same case. The seller had 25 individual boxes he got from a distributor which he suspects came from damaged cases. But who REALLY knows. :-)

I've opened 5 out of 8 boxes so far. Here's the breakdown.....


Box 1
Ginny Autograph
Madame Maxime's Costrume /825

Box 2
Crouch Senior Autograph
McGonagall's Ball Costume /350

Box 3
Film Card - CFC3
C10 Fleur Costume /1025

Box 4
Film Card - CFC2
C10 Fleur Costume /1025

Box 5
Flag Prop P1 /455
C13 Fleur Costume /900


Hmmmmm..... What does this all mean? Do my first 2 autographs mean I'm on my way to a Quad Card? What about the fact I'm 2 boxes short of a case? Do Box 3 and Box 4 indicate my 8 boxes are totally random? I don't know.....

Any guesses what's in the last 3 boxes !!!??!

ajdedo,

I know who you got the boxes from. I was tempted too due to the low prices but later decided against it as I know high chances are that you won't find a quad or those high end autos in these boxes. But I am sure its still great fun busting those boxes! Smokin'

Unlucky, that is the danger of buying loose boxes as the good ones "may" have already been busted.

Harry Potter Shirt (red) - C5 - 230/275
Ashley Artus/Death Eater auto - DE1

I just noticed nobody answered your question!

Pretty much the "most sought after" are the ones that were made in the fewest numbers. The quad autograph card was 50-60 copies, the Radcliffe auto maybe 100, Harry's letter to Sirius #/90, and Rita Skeeter's notepad and Chudley Cannons Poster #/120. Plus a few mucho-multi-case purchase incentives.

Two complete sets with two extra cards
BT3

Would've liked a better costume card but I am still very pleased with the auto.
