Yup (awesome movie!). This card will pay for many many non sports cards. Big Grin

I listed it on ebay tonight and it barely lasted 5 minutes. I had it $379.95 BIN OBO with auto accept any offer $300 or more and it was snapped up for $335. Sportscards really are like playing the lottery, but with worse odds, lol, but you gotta win something eventually. Razz

Bought 3 random packs from a half box of Iron Man. First two packs - commons. Third pack....

Wait for it...

Wait...

Robert Downey Jr. Autograph!!!!!!!!!!!!
AND... it was not only his sig, but he wrote "2008" below it. I have looked around and most that I have seen have only his sig, so I believe it is a variant!!!

I am way beyond pleased.

That's great- congrats on the Downey Jr.

I bought six packs of Women of Marvel and two packs of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull today and got:

S2: Black Widow and a Brian Kong sketch card of Blink from the WOM

and

Parallel Card #65- #311/350 and an Andrew Divoff autograph card.

Pretty good day for cards for me. Smile

Got this from a 4-pack purchase on my way home from work today:



Really happy about this one. Smile I've pulled a few various sketches from this set, and this is by far my favorite pull so far.

Wasn't the greatest find ever but I found an open box of Hobby edition Indiana Jones Heritage cards in my local K-mart, which I never knew even sold any cards. Anyway I thought to myself, seeing as this is Topps, if the big hit cards would be in the same place as all my Heroes ones had been in my case. So I bought 5 packs and sure enough, I pulled the George Harris auto. Seeing as many people were getting dud boxes, I thought this wasn't bad at allSmile Even though I have NO clue who this bloke is or what Indy movie he was inSmile

Dang I'm jealous!

I've gotten about 15 packs of KOTCS and I've come up almost completely empty. But that's part of the chase.

George Harris on iMDb was in Raiders of The Lost Ark (as Katanga - the captain of the cargo ship)
Most of his work has been on British TV, though he was in Layer Cake, Flash Gordon (the 1980 movie), 1 episode of Highlander, Black Hawk Down and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix...

Bought 5 packs of Indiana Jones and the KOTC today and got a foil #10 and a Ray Winstone autograph card-

I seem to be doing OK with this set, with the exception that I jumped on a Karen Allen auto too soon on eBay and ended up pulling one myself.
