a quality shop the Manchester Forbidden Planet where they didnt radically change the order of the cards when pricing them. I must have cherry picked over 100 boxes from that store. But now I'm a reformed character...

the dross I referred to above largely came from elsewhere...where the pack mixing habits of the sellers were unknown...

Glad you are reformed as otherwise you might get a Twak Big Grin

Ksahni,
Ignore me - it was just the Green Envy flowing over me! Well done on an excellent pull - I don't think anyone, even now, is absolutely certain how many of the Bermans there are out there, so you did very well!
Au Res.,
Paul

My local store got a fresh order in including Battlestar Galactica, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and a fresh box of Family Guy. I couldn't afford too much and wanted some of each so I settled for 5 packs of each to be opened at home so I wouldn't be tempted to get more if I was blanked but it turned out good.

Battlestar Galactica- Alessandro Julian as Lt. Gaeta autograph.

Harry Potter- Prop Card, 191/490

Family Guy- Bad Dog BD2 and Rich Koslowski SK12 418/509 full color Chris sketch.

Very happy with my Family guy pulls, I needed both a Koslowski sketch and a Chris character sketch so I got 2 birds with 1 stone and the BD2 was the last regular insert card I needed to finish the mini-master portion of my Family Guy collection.

Earlier tonight I was at the local Wal-Mart and bought a pack of American Chopper trading cards. It's been months since they had these cards, and this pack must have been a stray leftover. When I opened the pack I found a Paul Jr. t-shirt card. This is a cool card, and definitely the best $1.97 I've spent in a long time.

I believe you're right Paul, the card was only available through redemption. Can't imagine how this one got in a pack. But you never know.


Can't have pulled that card form a pack ,that's a scan from my beauuutiful,lloooverly INFORMATIONAL website Wink (as in don't come there to buy stuff, they aren't for sale!)

Whilst picking up my copy of the new NSU, the store owner pointed towards the newly opened box of RA's Battlestar Gallactica "Only just been opened" he said, "I don't know if you're interested?"
I randomly pulled out two packs, as it my habit.

In one of them was the CC1 "From The Archives" card - a nice piece of red material as worn by 'Number Six'
