Went to a shop yesterday that was clearing out non sports packs and they had 3 packs of lost season 2 for 2.00 a pop so I bought all three and pulled a auto redemption for
L. Scott Caldwell as Rose Henderson. Cant say I know who she is but I wont argue a redemption!

Well, i had a good pull, sorta. I found a store that had literally dusty old packs of star trek for 50 cents a pack, i bought the 10 packs i could find that had autographs in them. half way through , i saw an autograph...sorta. I pulled a autograph redemption for Avery Brooks, Captain Sisko. almost 1/2 of the packs had inserts, and it was a lot of fun, but i just wish it had not been a redemption. oh well.

I wish there was a shop where I could buy loose packs. I have to buy boxes to get anything.

Had a VERY happy surprise today buying packs at a comic book/sports card shop that had some non sport as well. Bought some lost, some superman returns, and some LOTR evolution packs they had left from a while back. No inserts in lost. no inserts in Serenity. Luck started turning around in Superman returns, pulled a sam huntington auto. Then, saving the Evolution for last, pulled a Level B Parallel Sam Card, A legolas Stained glass, and really busted the odds by hitting a very nice dennis budd sketch of boromir, shortprint level D out of 200!

YAY!

I think cards gravitate to those collectors who appreciate them most. In your case Zhamlau its LOTR. Big Grin
