Here is the auto foil sticker, next to it is a regular foil sticker. No stickers, these are on-card autos!

Awesome pulls on both the auto and the patch! Absolutely gutted myself though, bought some Lost Archives packs from the London FP around the 17th Dec, looks like the pack prices were reduced rather significantly after I got mine! They were charging £2.99 a pack! (I did get an auto, Grant Bowler/'Captain Gault' - was pleased but not sure it justified the pack price)

Howdy,

Very inpressed by the Iron Man 2 sketch you pulled Batman.

I have a few Iron Man 2 sketches myself but they pale by comparison to that peach.

Congratulations on the other pulls too folks.

I've had a very, VERY long dry spell of not really pulling anything decent from packs. So today I went to my local shop and bought seven loose packs of Topps WWE Platinum. In the last pack I pulled a Chris Jericho autograph card Cool

It looks like this,


Thanks for reading guys Wink

Here's a couple of interesting stories.

I needed four common cards from the Skybox Star Trek TNG Season 4 series. I saw 2 packs on eBay, 2 weeks ago, for .99 cents and free shipping. I bid on them and won.
Would you believe upon opening the first pack I got 3 out of the 4 commons I needed plus a special embossed card of Guinan, #S10. And when I opened the second pack it had the 4th card I needed. What are the odds of that. After looking through thousands of cards at Flea Markets and T-Card Shows I find what I need in 2 random packs bought on a whim. Dance

My son started collecting the Topps Star Wars: Rise of the Bounty Hunters series. In his first 3 packs he bought, at Target {isn't it nice for an 8 year old to shop in a retail store and reach into a box and pick out some packs?}, all 3 packs had one of those clear-red bordered-cell cards in them. Not bad for a first timer. Clap

I picked up 15 packs of IRON MAN 2 at the local Dollar Tree today. I pulled CC2, CC3, and CC9. Also AH1 and AH9. And finally IMC2, which is the Nick Fury Memorabilia Card.

I picked up four heat sealed blisterpacks of discounted cards (.99 for 3 packs) at suncoast video. They mostly had CCG in the packs but 4 had LOTR Evolutions packs. So I promptly bought them. Three of the blisterpacks had a LOTR CCG pack hiding in the middle, but the last one had a lonely pack of LOTR Chrome. When opened it yielded this gem... 1:865 makes it the rarest pull in the set!!
