That's amazing! On the 1st of this month, four boxes left NZ. By the 8th the two UK boxes had arrived. By the 10th the first of the US boxes had arrived. Now 17 days from the date of the forth box mailing,Debi has still not received the box! So where is it??

Shipping to the States these days is highly unpredictable. I had one parcel I sent arrive in 3-4 days while another took 28. Both were sent via Regular Airmail. I think it sometimes depends on which way the wind is blowing on the day you send them Big Grin

Luv You I am excited, kinda. You see, I was looking forward to either of the mystery promo boxes. I don't collect many sets, old or new. And i go for mostly promos and base cards. I know I am in the very very small minority that does not focus on inserts or autos or sketch or... But I still enjoyed looking thru mystery box old inserts. Now to move it on to the next lucky collector.

I'm still waiting on Insert New box. Sean contacted me 11 days ago, asking if I'd received it. Nothing yet.

I thought you were meant to have the box no more than 7 days not a month. Twak

OK It's time for an update. Mystery Box Old Inserts has originally done the rounds of the UK and was on-sent to the US. All of those participants (that requested it) have now received it too so now it's on its way back to me . Once received I will reload it and send it on its way again.

Mystery Box Inserts (New) is currently circulating in the US and will then go to the UK shortly

Promo #2 is now leaving the US and is on it's way to Wolfie in the UK

Finally, Promo #1 box is a problem. The last time I tracked it it went to Richard Farley (Triple Frog). However, communication has collapsed for some reason and I am not getting any response to my emails. The last one I sent came back with a message from his server to say the email was undeliverable. Can anyone who knows Richard please try to contact him?

Apart from all that the first round seems to have been working fairly satisfactorily. Some people are not seeing many boxes arrive in the mail as they maybe only subscribed to one box and once they have received it it will be a while before it comes back to them with new cards in it. According to my bookkeeping everyone has received at least one box of something.

As each box gets seen by all those who requested it, it will return to me and I will restock it with new cards and get them on their way again.

Anyone who would like to participate can still contact me to advise me which boxes they would like to receive.

A big thank you goes out to the current receivers of boxes, your quick turnaround is greatly appreciated.

Regards

Sean

I received Mystery Promo Box 2 a few days ago, pulled some nice cards from it, and put some nice ones back in. Just need to hear where they go next.

Hey Sean,

Still waiting to hear who I should mail Mystery Box Promo #1 to next. I know you've been having email troubles but let me know if you see this post?

Thanks! Wave
