Just got home from Spring Break so I am a little late to the party. Tired too. Wife has left to go to work and after I get the girls settled with dinner and off to bed I hope to open these 3 boxes.

A retail SW Galaxy 5 box and Wacky Packages Old School 2 from Topps. And an opened box (Sketch removed) of Marvels Dangerous Divas by Rittenhouse Archives I got at Auction. 24 packs for $11.00 including shipping.

I did open the WP Old School 2 to see what the extras are!

A poster and a pack of extras!

Inside the bag was

A Jay Lynch Sketch of Frankenstein

Wacky Packages Old School 2
17 Packs opened had my first 9 Card Check list Puzzle
21 Packs opened had my first set of stickers
23 Packs opened had 2 sets of stickers, 1 puzzle, 7 of 9 for second puzzle, 3 Triplicate stickers and 7 (4 diff) puzzle checklists plus one unopened pack.

Classic old school stickers with blank tan backs.

Marvel Dangerous Divas Box 2724 (Opened sketch removed) 24 packs
1 Set
33 Extras
S3, S4, S9
W2, W8, W9, W10
7 Foil Parallels?
Good thing I only spent $11.00 for 24 packs because the base set is pretty lame! Matte finish old school look with puzzle backs and no text.

Too bad the puzzle backs don't line up numerically when placed in 9 pocket pages.

Opened the Retail box of STAR WARS Galaxy 5 while watching the Original STAR WARS on TV!
Got one complete base set an 35 extras, 6 Anti-Theft cards, 9 of 15 foils and 4 of 6 Etched Foils. Was fun opening while watching the movie.

Also don't like that the backs are oriented 2 different ways. Can't line them up numerically in 9 pockets either.

I just had fun opening three packs of Woodstock Generation and one box of Harry Potter Memorable Moments 2. I've never opened so much in one day! I pulled a Jimi Hendrix sketch by Steven Miller, a VW bus sketch by David Debois, and a Summer of Love sketch by David Girdley. The VW sketch is really nice up close. It looks as if it were screen-printed instead of hand-drawn.

I love Harry Potter cards, but I've purchased only a couple of boxes over the past two years, mostly due to my really bad luck with pulls. Still, I found a Memorable Moments 2 box at really good price and couldn't resist. I'm really glad now! I pulled a common auto (Ryan Nelson as Slightly Creepy Boy) and a C12 Hermione/Ginny double costume card numbered 175/250. The Hermione swatch is a three-color variant.

I never would have bought all of the premium packs and the box if it weren't for OTBD. Thanks, Harris! Smile

Well, I was able to get to the Elyria show today. Ed Webb helped me out by hooking me up with these 3 boxes.

The Divas box didn't last very long, my daughter and her friend opened the box on the way home.
Here's a better scan of the sketch. It's by Adam Cleveland......

I got a full base set with extras.
Also chase cards.....
W2, W7, W9
S5 and S6
And parallel cards 14, 17, 26, 36, 48, 53, 62 and 71

Maybe I'll open the other 2 boxes of Robots later. Thumb Up

I'm looking for colored "Robots the Movie" sketch cards by Inkworks.

Only opened the one box this time around, FF Archives. Cracked it at the club today, surrounded by people playing Magic the Gathering.

A couple of dupes on the Nemesis cards but everything else was new, inc. a very nice Daryl Banks sketch card of Crystal.

Here is my submission. I opened a box of Heroes Archives. Got a few nice autographs, but I got shorted a Relic card. (I figured out why later, my box only had 23 packs in it)
The inserts were:
G1, G5
Q2, Q9

My son and I just finished cracking the only box I have never opened. A box of 1983 Topps Star Wars Return of the Jedi Series II. It was fun opening the packs and luckily the concrete gum did only minimal damage to a dozen or so cards. We got 1 base set and sticker set and an army of singles. It was fun as my son grows older and his interest in cards is starting to fade as the intrest in girls, computers and iphones grows it was nice to share this.

Open that box 2011
I opened a box of dangerous divas numbered 977
I received the base card set, 8 parallel cards, two sultry seductress cards (s5 & s8), one embrace card – e17, and 3 women of marvel cards (2,7,9)
Sketch card is Black Cat by NATO (Raimundo Nonato).
I loved the artwork on the back of the base card sets especially the pieces by Terry Dobson and Greg land but all are very cool.
I liked that the cards were landscape with 3 of same character and that often portions of the images went from one to the other card. I obviously lost touch with the comic world as I don't know who some of these divas are. I loved the sultry seductress set but didn't think the foil covering suited the embrace cards as much as it did in the women of Marvel set. I think it is because some of the backgrounds are a lot darker for the divas sat.
All in all a nice addition to the women of Marvel release; can’t wait to see what Rittenhouse does next with Marvel.

I played the game a little different.
Last month I cracked a case & a half of Hellboy.
When I hit the sketch, i pushed the other packs to the side.

Today I decided to open all the leftover packs & make sets.

BTW - - this took a LOT longer than i thought.
I made a master set of all inserts;
and TEN base sets. Cripes.

Good evening all! I'm a little late in posting this year. We had to get to a JC Penney's sale this morning. Lol

Before we left, though, I did open my box of Warehouse 13 cards that I bought from Ed Webb at last month's CECE show. Here's what I got:

1 complete base set plus many extra.

Artifacts "Snag It, Bag It, Tag It" Cards

  • A05 The Farnsworth
  • A06 Jubilee Grand Poker Chip
  • A07 Phoenix Charm

    Artifact "Relic" Cards

  • R7 Leena
  • R? Myka Bering

    Autograph Cards

  • Saul Rubinek as Artie Nielsen (Very Limited) Clap
  • Michael Hogan as Warren Berin (Limited)

    Gallery Cards

  • G5 Mrs. Irene Frederic

    I'm VERY happy in getting the Saul Rubinek card! Big Grin

    My thanks to the Tosers & Non-Sport Update for once again organizing and hosting Open That Box! Day this year! It's just somehow more enjoyable when you know that there are other collectors around the world that are participating. Smile

    I just finished with my Wacky Packages Old School 2 box and it was a blast to open. In the box I received all of the stickers and made 2 sets with a few extras left over. I also got 8 of the 9 puzzle cards, but out of 24 packs I still coundn't make the whole Bad Tooth puzzle though Twak

    And here's the sketch I received by Bill Griffith,

    Happy OTBD guys Wave

    I wanted to do a live break, but my webcam wasn't working when I checked, but here is what I pulled.

    First up BSG Season 4 Box 372/5500 - Going to end up picking up all the autos and costume cards from the Rittenhouse BSG series so I figured I'd start off by buying some boxes (although I do have the Helfer auto costume, and Helfer/Callis dual auto already...oh and the Keagan Connor Tracy auto). All of these are personal collection:

    The best hit first Katee Sackhoff as Starbuck:

    Dominic Zamprogna as James Lyman

    Costume Cards
    Cavil dual

    Cally Tyrol

    Next up is Charmed Forever. I've been trying to put together the Pieceworks set for about 6 months. I had PW2, PW2 (pattern), PW4 (pattern), PW5 (red), PW6 (pattern), PW7, PW8, PW10, PW12, and PW13. Obviously I was hoping for a PW7 (embroidered)...I previously opened 5 boxes and pulled some doubles as well as PW4 (plain), PW1, and PW9. Here are the hits from the box I opened today:

    PW4 (plain)

    PW5 (grey)

    So nothing huge, but I was happy to pull one that I need.

    Next up is Star Trek Enterprise Season 3. Mainly bought the boxes hoping to pull a Blalock, but didn't happen...pretty funny thing...I busted six boxes of this earlier this week, and the first box I opened had these exact same two autos.

    Box 7715/8000
    Steven Culp as Major Hayes - He's probably best known for his role in Desperate Housewives

    Nikita Ager as Rajiin

    Next is Star Trek The Movie 2009. I missed out on this product when it was originally release, and paid a good deal for the box. Here are the hits:

    Chris Hemsworth as George Kirk - still hard for me to believe this dude is Thor

    Male Cadet Costume card

    Lastly, busted a box of Marvel Dangerous Divas. Thought I was done with comic sketch card sets, but this one pulled me back in.

    Box 7030/8000

    Invisible Woman by Juan "Tonio" Fontanez

    All in all a fun break...a little bummed with the doubles in Charmed, and Star Trek, but they were still both fun to break.

    this is my first time participating and i've been saving a Marvel Dangerous Divas box for the occasion.

    these are really nice cards and i like how the backs of the cards are puzzle of larger art works.

    my one box met the expected ratios:

    1 base set (with 33 extras)
    8 parallels
    3 Women of Marvel
    2 Sultry Seductresses
    1 Embrace
    and 1 sketch card

    the sketch is by Jomar Bulda, but i'm not sure who the character is.

    Awesome posts everyone! You got a couple more hours to go. Plus, and as I said in the other thread, I'll leave the thread open tomorrow to for any latecomers.

    Just a few quick things, while I'm posting already.

    - There's been some really great sketches pulled today. I particularly liked the Marvel and Wacky Packages sketches.

    - I give you credit, Jane!! I give someone else in your household a lot of credit for making this happen as well. Big Grin

    - Really liked your video break, Ryan. Loved the animations and not sure how you did that.

    - Nice to see Rita and Ted & Lily.

    - Don't forget to send me original pics. We're mainly looking for your pictures of your boxes shown with people, pets, etc.

    Thanks again.
