Can't quite believe it's taken me until now to find this thread!
Here's my list (most of which are no longer in my collection, alas...)
01 - Shatner/Nimoy dual autograph card (Star Trek 35th)
02 - Leonard Nimoy autograph (from Skybox TOS Series 3)
03 - Brent Spiner autograph (Enterprise Season 4)
04 - pretty much all the autographs I pulled from that very first LOTR set by Topps - including TWO John Rhys Davies from two separate packs (bought as single packs from different stores abotu a week apart)
05 - Burt Reynolds autograph from one of the Twilight Zone sets
06 - Chris Bolson Enterprise sketch (from Star Trek 35)
07 - John Czop Mirror, Mirror Spock sketch (also fro mStar Trek 35th)
08 - A double Thunderbirds Whammy - a colour Graham Bleathman TB2 sketch and a redemption card for Sir Ben Kingsley (which was honoured some 4 years later!) from a single box
09 - SeriCel "Instant Win" card from the Complete Star Trek Animated set
10 - It's a bit of a toss-up between the Charlton Heston autograph from the "Planet of The Apes" movie set (the Tim Burton movie) or the EMH holograph card from Star Trek Voyager Season 1 Series 1.

The one that got away - the redmeption card I pulled from a box of "Sabrina The Teenage Witch" for a Melissa Joan Hart autograph card that unfortunately got caught up in the postal problems in America following 9/11 and which has never been seen again...
Au Res.,
Paul

3) Star wars 30th Dave Prowse Auto

Well I only have this, which describes my success, or unsuccess, at pulling cards.... I pulled a winning autograph challenge card from a box of Star Trek TOS 2. Of course, it was several years too late, and instead of having all the autographs, all I got was this lousy card!

1) Rare 'V' card from Star Trek TOS 2 Autograph Challenge

Thank you thank you. I usually have terrible luck in trading cards. If you look at my pulls list, that is over a span of 20 years, Babylon 5 sometime in the 90s, LOTR 5 years ago, and then, recently, the Ford auto... To have him as the bright spot is certainly remarkable.

I think that Ford card is the best of any of his autograph cards for any set: classic image; nice design; iconic role... a true 'grail' card if ever there was one. If I was ever fortunate enough to pull one of those I'd love to sell it but as a collector and a massive Indy fan I don't know if I physically could!

Its great to hear you beat the odds - those pulls are always the best. Thanks for sharing the pic. Thumb Up

I rarely buy boxes. Usually just pick up packs at Walmart or Target so I don't expect to find much.

I did get this card in the only pack I purchased for this LOYR set.

I also found this in the small box I bought at Target
