This is the card I wanted most from any set so far and I cant believe I have managed to pull it out of a four pack purchase! Bouncey


Fantastic Pull - I hate you Big Grin

Not as good as an auto propworks card, but I bought some Harry Potter OOTPU packs and pulled a Ginny Sweater 9/620. I was pretty happy, as I never pull anything good from random Artbox packs...

Been awhile since I had anything fun to post here, but I figuerd I'd share this. Went out last night and bought two packs of Order of the Phoenix Update, and four packs of DC Legacy. They yielded these:





Nothing ridiculous like an autographed propworks card, lol, but not bad pulls all the same. Smile

That's a ridiculously awesome find, congratulations! I'm not a fan of Lost, but this card even struck me as a great find for anyone lucky enough to get one. Smile


Well, it's just a question of chance: you would have gotten the same card even if you had bought just one pack! (it just needed to be the right pack from the four... Smile

Bought two packs of Lost: Season 2 and pulled the redemption card for the sand propworks card featuring Hurley. Waiting to hear back if they can still honor it, but I don't see it being too much of a problem. Smile

GREAT pull Ariana! I can't imagine Inkworks would have an issue honoring it.

Yeah, I don't think so either. I was really excited, because over the weekend, my boyfriend finally made me sit down and watch the entire first season of the show (which I've never been able to do), and I found myself getting hopelessly addicted. When I was out today, I decided on a whim to buy a couple random packs, but I never expected to pull anything good. Smile

(Of course, now I'm even more jealous of Patdata and his amazing autographed propworks find! Wink )

I purchased the last 8 packs of a box of Marvel Masterpieces and pulled a Jessica Hickman Wolverine sketch(head shot).
I have got to get my act together and get the images of the 3 MM sketches I pulled together. All there are head shots of major marvel icons Spider-man, Cyclops, and now Wolverine.

I grabbed some Marvel Masterpieces 2007 packs in FP today, and pulled this:



Not sure who the artist or even character are.

Looks good, but sketch ain't my thing so it's up for trade (hope to update my list this weekend).
