i don't think i've had 10 great pulls, but here are my best:

- Michael C. Hall from Dexter (3 boxes)
- Chris Hemsworth from Thor (1 box)
- James Marsters from Spike (1 box)
- Simon Helberg from Big Bang Theory 1/2 (i bought 7 boxes on preorder... by time i received they had jumped up in price so i just opened 3 and made my money back on the others)
- Melike Acar sketch from Marvel Greatest Heroes (1 box - this was cool because i bought these at 2012 Heroes Con. the seller had one box on his table, but when i showed interest he told me he had more. i said i only wanted one box so he let me pick the box i wanted out of the 8 or so he had stored away. i chose wisely...)
- Carmen Electra auto numbered 2 of 5 from 2012 Benchwarmer Holiday (1 box)

Back in 1995, I opened two boxes of Prince Valiant by Comic Images, and in EACH box I pulled a redemption for an auto. I think only 500 were made.

Also, in 1994, I opened a box of Images of Shadowhawk and pulled the Bart Simpson "Shadow Bart" card which was like 1 in 15 boxes

Maybe the print run on both sets was small !

I will probably be forgetting some here, as I have sold/changed collecting habits a lot since I really got into the hobby:

In no particular order:

1) Emma Watson autograph from 1 Box of HP Heroes and Villains (only box ever purchased)

2) Emma Watson autograph from 1 Box of HP Prisoner of Azkaban (only box ever purchased)

3) Incredible Hulk Topps 2003 - Pulled 3 Sketch cards from a single PACKET in the box (have posted this story before), they were so hard to pull I worked out it greatly affected the odds of pulling a sketch in the entire production run... The box also cost me £15...

4) Patrick McGoohan autograph card from a box of The Prisoner (this was the 4th box I opened, but was loose and not in a case)

5) LeVar Burton autograph from 1 box of Star Trek TNG Season 7 (rarest autograph if I remember?)

Most of the others come from cases or multiple box pulls but I have had some other really good ones, mainly sketches.

4) Josh Holloway auto redemption (Lost S1)
5) Summer Glau auto (Serenity - On Christmas day!)
6) Cyclops sketch by Rosema (X-Men 3 - My one and only box)
7) Plane propworks (Lost S3 - Christmas day)
8) Liv Tyler auto (LOTR TTT)
9) Morena Baccarin auto and pieceworks in the same box (Serenity)
10) Michael Emerson auto (Lost S3 - Christmas day)


Was about to post my list and found my old post several years ago, it's more or less the same!

Can't believe I forgot to mention pulling a Nathan Fillion auto redemption from my only box of Firefly. This was the first box i'd ever bought! Of anything! This would probably trump 8,9,10 from my old list.

Special note to my Lost Archives box a month ago, it's not the greatest product for the contents having less value than the sealed box but it worked out! A lot! Pulled Daniel Dae Kim and Ian Somerhalder autographs, and the Kate Dharma patch. Also included a Wayne Pygram autograph, which I appreciate from my old Farscape watching days! I think this trumps 9 and 10 of the list above too! Big Grin

Sorry to say I've have not had any great pulls from sealed boxes only cases and loose packs. I seem to be a magnet for common cards!

Same here...I haven't done very well when opening single boxes. My best pull from a single box would probably be the Drusilla pieceworks from Buffy Big Bads. It goes downhill pretty fast after than one.

-Leonard's Mom Auto
-Yellow Printing plate (1:3 cases)
-Blue Printing Plate (1:3 cases)

-Redemption card for an oversized relic card for the girls of big bang theory Smile (1:11.66 cases)

The printing plates and redemption were back, to back, to back packs.

Thinking back...

Bryan Singer x-men movie autograph from the 1 box Bought (I think the odds were around 1:120 boxes)

Stan Lee sketch from Complete Avengers (The only sketch card I still have)

Alias beaded hat redemption card

Rose McGowan autograph from Charmed

Chris Hemsworth autograph card from Avengers (not a sealed box, just 8 loose packs)

Jim Parsons autograph from Big Bang Theory seasons 1-2 (again, just 8 loose packs, same time as I pulled the Hemsworth. That was a good day)

If you don't want that Nimoy autograph card, send it to me. Maybe I'll even consider paying for postage, but I don't know yet.


Good, no great, pulls!
