Saw a pretty good price for a case of Revenge cards, from the TV series of the same name, just cannot wait to tear into it when it arrives to see what cards are inside! The picture on the top of the card box looks great, can't get any better than lovely ladies dressed to the nines! Now I have to wait for it to show up, the long sleepless nights, lol! Like looking at that present underneath the tree, but having to wait for a couple of weeks to actually open it, darnit!

I used to buy cases. At first it was great opening them, I was definitely getting my money's worth. But then something changed and I was dissapointed in the card variety (or lack of it). I will not mention Rittenhouse, but the last few cases I bought were bad enough to make me quit buying them. I also ran out of money, which also didn't help.

Maybe I just had bad luck, but it was enough to discourage me from future case purchases.

I have only purchased one case (Game of Thrones season 3), but it was a fun experience. My advice would be to pace yourself. Opening 12 boxes in a row sounds fun now, but by box 8 I was a little drained of excitement.

Well, just got an email that they checked their warehouse, and there are none left, even though their computer said there was one left! Oh well, just my luck, back to just boxes again!

Darn!

I think you should count yourself lucky Aldo. There is a reason why Revenge cases are cheap. It was a poor seller without the main stars represented in the autographs. A risky title that didn't pay off.

We've seen many sets like that, card sets where the main people did not sign anything, like Sarah Michelle Geller, who never signed anything from any of the Buffy series!
