Box 15;
Alex Buechel Niki Sketch card 1/1
Mohinder Auto
Box 16;
The Haitian Auto

Both of these cases had extra hot boxes, and both were from a UK distributor. I was shocked when I pulled the dual auto, as it's probably a once in a lifetime pull at those odds. I was really debating canceling my pre-order (2 cases is way WAY beyond what I could usually afford).. kinda glad I didn't now Smile I was also pleased with the Jake Minor and Alex Buechel sketches.

Im curious, with such a large amount of collation problem with this set how can the odds of cards like that be accurate?

Why not??? You would if these were the only two boxes you had bought. The collation is down to the manufacturer and Topps. It is obvious that Topps expected this as they have replacements.


True, if they were the only two boxes I bought, but since the case itself resulted in way more than the proper amount, I'm going to leave the replacements to those who actually were shorted in their cases.

Good point, I'd say the odds in this set are way skewed.

Awesome breaks on the two cases Spooky Mulder!

I opened my 1 box this week. I was disappointed I didn't get a sketch but I was very happy with what I did get

8 foils(2 duplicates)
1 base set
West Rosen Auto
Hiro/Peter Dual Costume Smile

I've already sold the dual costume so I can buy a few sketches.

The odds are still accurate over the course of the entire run of trading card packs. It does not mean you will get a dual auto every 9,610 packs.


Its too early for mathematical equations.

If there are only 100 dual auto cards and there are 961,000 packs of cards than the insertion rate is 1:9610

Yes and soon it will be mine, just bought itSmile
I'm never lucky enough to pull sketch cards, particularly a Pence. I was happy to buy it now for that price, I paid about AU$500 for a Season One case and only found one sketch. I was only looking for sketches from Volume Two, so instead of buying a case again I thought I'd buy 1 sketch of each different character. This one will go perfectly with the Peter Sean Pence I just purchasedSmile Now all I need is a Pence Nathan, if anyone has one let me knowSmile

Good to see its going to a good home. Yeah the other Peter SP is fantastic also. Have not seen many Nathans listed, might have to wait for him to list his Nathan return card which is superb if he aint sold it allready.

Went to my local shop sunday to drop off a few things and they had a box so I went for it. I went through all my packs to see if it was a costume box or not...6th pack in I "felt" the costume and just put it back adn figured it wasnt worth dealing with.

Got home and opened it and it was-already have it-



Went through the other packs to get the foils out and the 3rd to last pack had this-

I picked up 6 more boxes today - don't ask me why... I guess I am just a Glutton for punishment.

Box 1 - Hiro Costume Card & Chris Henderson Elle Sketch
Box 2 - Monica Dawson Costume Card
Box 3 - Nathan Petrelli Costume Card
Box 4 - Peter Petrelli Costume Card
Box 5 - Peter Petrelli Sketch - Chris Henderson
Box 6 - DUD.

Woulda liked to pull at least 1 decent autograph, but oh well, what can you do.

Pulling 2 of Chris Henderson's sketches should have been at least some consolation though!
