Oooh good question, i'm trying to remember and currently can only come up with:

1)Julian McMahon auto from Charmed Power of 3 - my only box of this product.
2)Kristen Bell auto - from season 2 Veronica Mars
3)Charisma Carpenter auto/pw from the same box!
4)Kristen Bell auto from season 1 Veronica Mars (bought on same day!!!)
5)Jennifer Garner auto from season 2 of Alias
6)Tobey Maguire auto from Spiderman 3.

I'm sure there have been others over the years, but these are the ones that stick out for me!

Star Wars Revenge of the Sith- Kilian Plunkett sketch of Amidala (loose packs)

Ooh I forgot, I pulled a Vinnie Jones auto out of the only X Men box I ever bought, a random impulse buy at Collectormania. Considering the millions of one line cast members who signed, I was quite lucky! Wink

Eek I'm speechless!

1. Iyari Limon auto Metal (my first auto pull) from Buffy Season 7 too (just the 1 tho Shake Head)
I've not encountered any more than stated odds pull yet Shake Head.

2. Supernatural Season 1 Amy Acker piecework auto Drool Metal (odds were 1 in 2 cases) after buying the last 8x Eek boxes of the same case,
1st 4 boxes on Sat then going back to dealer for last 4 when I pulled all male actor autos in 1st 4 Eek.
I don't think I'll ever go for that many boxes Roll Eyes again Roll Eyes

3. Bought 2x Terminator 3 boxes and managed to pull 1x Kristina Loken auto Metal Bouncey Big Grin

4. Bought 2x Complete Bond and pulled 1x Famke Jannsen auto although I much prefer the Dangerous Liasons full bleed style Eek

No 6-10 yet, my ratio of bad boxes Shake Head to good Metal is probably 99:1 Eek Shake Head

I really like full bleeds.

Hmm...Not from a case and from a sealed box....I don't have my cards in front of me so I'm going to go off of what I remember. Here goes...

1)Buffy 10th Anniversary Stake Prop Card
2)Complete Highlander Hidden Archive Box
3)Charmed Destiny (right set?) Piper/Leo Dual Auto
4)Alias Season 1 Jennifer Garner Auto (from 1 box when it was 1st released to see if we liked the cards!)
5)Battlestar Galactica Premier Katie Sackoff Auto
6)Battlestar Galactica Season 2 Katie Sackoff Auto Costume card (This was a case ordering incentive that was inserted in the bottom of the box!)
7)Buffy Men of Sunnydale Evil Trio Triple Signed Card
8)Spike Complete Story James Marsters Auto/Pieceworks
9)X-Files Connections Scully Auto Pieceworks
10)X-Files Season 4&5 Scully Auto

In case you don't want to qualify the Highlander box as a "pull" here's the bonus #11

11)Buffy Season 5 Dawn Auto (from our 1st box of Buffy cards EVER!)

Off the top of my head these were probably the cards that we were most excited to have pulled when we got them! I'm sure I'm leaving off cards that might be worth more, but that's not the point! Big Grin

Interesting notes on this list: #7, 9 & 10 were opened on the same night during a SDCC! I'm pretty sure my wife woke up the room next door with her screaming!

The Dawn auto was the card that lit the card collecting bug in my wife. It was the 1st auto she had pulled and hasn't really stopped since!

Eek this guy has all the luck Shake Head Wink
Nice, that hidden archive box definitely counts Eek

Garner & Scully autos are still my top 10 wanted autos

I really like full bleeds.

I think my best pulls were from my first two box purchases.

Buffy 10th Anniversary - FF Xander Pieceworks card
Battlestar Season 2 - James Callis auto.

At the time of opening the two boxes I didn't know how rare either of the cards were, I thought the Buffy PW was just a normal piecework, till I saw them being sold for over $100 and found that they were only 1 per case. Then I read that the James Callis auto was a very limited one for that release, so I was very happy.

Trek TOS 3= Spock auto
MCC= Hulk sketchagraph by Joe Sinnott
Terminator 3=Lokken auto
Batman Begins=Scarecrow auto
Catwoman=leather top pw1
Spawn Toy Files=Todd McFarlane auto
Superman MOS=skydisc
Bond 40th(I think)=Moore auto

My best pulls would be (in no particular order):

1. James Bond Dangerous Liaisons (RA) : Denise Richards auto - My very first box I bought when I started card collecting. I had no idea it was such a good pull until my friend told me.

2. Doctor Who Definitive Series One (SI) : Tom Baker auto - A very nice gold pen auto

3. Star Trek TNG Quotable (RA) : Chris Bolson Enterprise sketch - only one per case, so very lucky to get one in my only box.

4. Star Trek 40th Anniversary (RA) : Robert Walker as Charlie Evans auto - bought from the same UK dealer as my JB DL box above.

5. Hellboy Movie (Ink) : Ron Perlman auto

6. Batman Begins (Topps) : Michael Caine auto - Found in the very first pack of the box!

7. Star Wars 30th Anniversary (Topps) : Cat Staggs letter sketch - I had seen these at Celebration Europe and mentioned to Cat that I'd love to get one... and I did!

8. LOTR ROTK (Topps) : Viggo Mortensen auto

9. 30 Years of 2000AD (SI) : Warren Martineck sketches (x2) - Pulled these from two boxes out of three. Never pulled a Martineck before that day.

10. BSG Colonial Warriors (RA) : Terry Carter (Tigh) Auto Costume - only two per case, so again lucky with this pull.

Although these are great single pulls, I'm still yet to pull something on the scale of a Famke or a Anderson. Similarly with sketches, I've pulled some nice ones (a Cummens Hellboy and a Carolyn Edwards Hammer Horror one come to mind), but I'd love to pull something truly amazing (an Andy Price or a Katie Cook would be perfect).

Must keep buying. Smile
