I bought a few packs at a local shop that was charging a dollar per pack. I pulled a daredevil costume card and a Manchester United Match-Worn shirt card of someone named dwight yorke. I know the Shirt card isnt technically a NON-sport card, but i figure 'hey, its soccer' so its not really a sports card exactly.

I decided to get six packs of Complete Bond in the hopes of a Dench, Blackman, or Andress auto. Didn't get those, but was very excited to get a Yaphet Kotto auto, as well as Quotable and DL insert that I needed. Now I can't decide if I want to press my luck and go for some more packs to see if the relic is still in there...

It's my birthday today. I decided to treat myself. I bought 2 packs of the new Charmed set and 6 packs of Wizard of Oz 2. I got a PW7 gold trim variant from Charmed Clap Bouncey and a Brian Kong Tin Man sketch from WOZ. I'll probably NEVER top that one again.

Picked up a few packs and boxes at a local card show this past weekend. Here's what I got:

4 packs Looney Tunes: BIA - Joe Dante auto redemption
2 packs Hellboy - zippo!!
1 box Buffy TVS Women of Sunnydale - Musetta Vander auto
1 box Angel Season 4 - ELIZA DUSHKU auto redemption!!

Dushku auto has been on my want list for quite a while! Redemption is on its way to Inkworks! This just goes to show that you never know what might be lurking in those loose packs and older boxes.

I just realized what you posted. A DUSHKU auto redemption?!?! Eek Drool - you are so lucky that Inkworks was still able to honor it.

Emailed Sue at Inkworks to see if they still honor it (along with the Dante redemption) and was told to send them both in. Can't wait to get it! When I get a chance, I post a image of it.

Boy has it ever been a dry spell in non sports since complete Avengers (for me anyways). I pop into the local shop every weekend and there seems to be very little new non-sports. Today I saw they'd opened a new box of Evis Is by Press Pass and I remembered I bought 2 packs a few months ago and got an Elvis Smoking Jacket costume card so I tried my luck with 2 packs again and wouldn't you know I got the gold version Elvis shirt costume card. 4 total packs and 2 Elvis worn cards, I think I could get to like this product.

Found out the rest of the name that my prop card has attached to it: Marietta Edgecombe- a minor character in the books. Smile

Bought 4 packs each of Transformers (movie) and of Spider-Man 3.

Auto of Hal Sparks as Elevator Passenger and Joe Manganiello as Flash Thompson from Spider-Man and the following sketch from Transformers



Don't know who the character or the artist are.

I'd bought 4 packs of each set (from what I assume to be the same boxes) last week and 4 packs of Spider-Man 3 the week before.
