He said he picked up 3 packs (packages) and had 6 packs of cards. I'm taking it he picked up the 2 count blister packages.

Blister packages should take almost all the pack searchers out of the game. But there will be those that open them to check.

Great pull on the 1:2000 odds.

I don't know about elsewhere, but here the retail packs are just sitting. Price point is a bit high and the value just isn't there with 1:2000 odds.

I hadn't bought packs in a while, but I stopped at my comic book store today, and got 1 pack of Game of Thrones S1 (it was their last pack), one pack of GOT S2, and 5 packs of The Walking Dead S3 P1.

Nothing out of the GOT S2, but... GF-06 and AM7 (Sarah Wayne Callis auto/wardrobe), so, really happy about that.

And now for the best part: GOT S1, Lena Headey autograph!!! I was, and still am, stunned! Especially after seeing the box breakdowns and realizing how very few of hers people pulled. I love my comic book store Big Grin

I hope you ran right out and bought a lottery ticket after that, going for the trifector. You will never top those pulls from two single packs again. Thumb Up

Holy moley that is unbelievable! Congrats! I'd also take Raven's advice and play the lotto - you are a shoe in!!!

Seriously that is spectacular Martine and I for one am jealous. Thumb Up

Just yesterday, I was in a Newbury Comics store in Boston and I purchased a mere 4 packs of Breaking Bad cards and 2 packs of Walking Dead cards. I collect neither set, but I had that "itch" and went for it. I got:

TWD Season 3 Pt 1 - M18 Carol costume

and

Breaking Bad A2 - Betsy Brandt

While these might not be the absolute biggest cards of the respective series, I think 2 hits out of 6 packs of cards is pretty darn good, no matter what the pull.
