What cards are in the box?
Is there a mixed selection of a lot, or just one set etc....
Thanks again

If this gets answered that takes some of the mystery out of the mystery box. Plus, the idea is that the cards will change with every person.

Could be an NSU article in the travels of this box?

And what about the guinness Book of World records... Most traveled parcel, number of times across the atlantic or even around the world.

Purely out of curiosity, does anyone know what happened to the box that kept being used by Card Talkers in trades? Is it stil out there, somewhere?

What's in the mystery box SHOULD stay a mystery Smile

And since (as has been pointed out) cards from the box are being replaced by other cards, we'll never know what's in there at any given time. FUN!!!!!!!!

Harris, you collect cards too????? Eek

Wouldn't you think it odd if Harris DIDN'T collect cards?

So, Paul remembers the origianl inspiration for the current mystery box. No, I don't know where it went. Still that was fun, but not a lot of fun, we were just trying to figure out where a consistently used box was. Now we are trying to figure out where a box full of ever-changing cards are!

Well, the mystery box has been addressed and will be shipped tomorrow to the next lucky recipient. I had to use a different box, however. The first box had too many postal stickers to remove!!

And, as I said in an earlier post, one of my replacements was a duplicate costume card.

Watch your mailboxes in the coming days. It's being shipped priority mail!! Elephant

Holy Cow!

I got the mystery box in the mail today! Had to look around for Allen Funt for a minute there when I got it! It will once again be in the post on Tuesday going to............who knows?

I was able to get several cards that I needed and replaced them with some good ones ( a few autos are mingling around...check the box carefully). I think this is a great idea and am glad that I was able to take part in it!

Hey if anyone coming to the San Diego comicon has the box at the time bring it along to the card talk meeting, we could move it through a whole group of us in record time!

This would make it more of a surprise tradng session and spoil the 'mystery'. I dont think that would be a good idea!!! Shake Head

What do you think Barrett?
