Just finished breaking a case. Here's the short version:

Looks like about 30-odd base sets.
6 Galactica 1980 insert sets (20 cards per set) with 20 extras
5 Colonial Warriors sets (9 cards per set) with 3 extras
4 Artifex sets (6 cards per set) no extras
1 Case Topper #'d 460 of 600
Autos:
3 Laurette Spang
3 John Dullaghan
3 Terry Carter
3 Lloyd Bochner
3 Noah Hathaway
2 Herbert Jefferson Jr.
2 Audrey Landers
1 Patrick Macnee
1 Lance LeGault
1 Felix Silla
1 Jack Stauffer
1 George Murdock
0 Dirk Benedict Frown
0 Richard Hatch Frown Frown
Sketches:
1 John Czop Smile (b/w pencil)
1 David Day (b/w pencil)
1 Chris Bolson (b/w pencil)
1 Dan Schaefer (b/w pencil)

Overall, the cards are up to RA's usual high standards. The sketches are way cool. One Cylon! The big bummer is no Benedict, and no Hatch (which I didn't think was limited).

According to Rittenhouse's web site it's a case of the following

R Hatch - Limited
D Benedict - V Limited
P McNee - Limited

It looks as if limited is 1 per case or less so what is v limited?

I can't wait for my case. I hope I pull some of those sketch cards. It's a shame you didn't get the Dirk Benedick or Richard Hatch autos.

I'll try to post some later, Dan.

And thanks for the reminder, Andrew. I forgot Benedict was VERY limited and the other two were just plain old limited.

The autograph cards use the same non gloss surface that was first used in "The Outer Limits: Sex, Cyborgs and Science Fiction" set. The design has a on the right side of the card, a nice large image of the character the signer portrayed. The signer's name is in a futuristic font akin that used in "Knight Rider".

The Artifex cards are really nice. They are several notches above those used in previous sets such as Farscape. These cards are on a canvas like surface with a plastisized surface like that used in "(Inkworks') "Buffy: Reflections" set. The muted magenta or clay colors make the images really stand out. And the gold foil lettering adds an elegant touch to the cards.

The "Colonial Warriors" foil cards are a nice subset and uses the same style uised in recent previous RA sets.

The "Galactica 1980" subset nicely ties the spinoff into the main series' base set, like was done for "Highlander: The Raven" subset to "The Complete Highlander" main series base set. The profile of the Colonial Viper in Bronze adds a nice touch to the subset cards.

The binder looks better on the reverse side than the front. The reverse has lots of Cylon Centurions in various poses and versions. It's nice that since Lorne Greene is not around to sign autograph cards, that his former costume could be made into a costume card, to remember him by.

Overall, "The Complete Battlestar Galactica" set is a nice set. It's just too bad that Jane Seymour injured her wrist and was unable to have her cards signed in time for pack insertion. However I was informed that once her wrist heals and she is able to sign/return her cards, that they'd show up in a future BG set.

Who knows? That's the fun, isn't it??? Big Grin

I'm wondering if it works that if you get one Limited auto in a case you won't get the other one (DCJ got MacNee but not Hatch)

We need more breakdowns to see!!!

And to think some people thought this forum wouldn't be useful... Big Grin

Half my case is broken, the rest will have to wait until Sunday... so far, it's looking hopeful...

Case Number 243

Box 5227 of 6000
13 Galactica 80 Cards
4 Colonial Warriors Cards
2 Artifex cards (N1, N6)
Autos: A3, A13

Box 1161 of 6000
13 Galactica 80 Cards
4 Colonial Warriors Cards
2 Artifex cards (N3, N5)
Autos: A7, A11
Sketch! Czop, pencil, ne of the funky tank vehicle thingies the Warriors used on the ground.

Box 2744 of 6000
13 Galactica 80 Cards
4 Colonial Warriors Cards
2 Artifex cards (N3, N4)
Autos: A14, A6
Sketch! Dan Schaefer, the most *gorgeous* Muffett... Big Grin

Box 3352 of 6000
13 Galactica 80 Cards
4 Colonial Warriors Cards
2 Artifex cards (N3, N5)
Autos: A7, A11
Sketch! Eudardo Pansica, the Galactica (a bit small, but you can't have everything... Big Grin)

Box 2227 of 6000
12 Galactica 80 Cards
4 Colonial Warriors Cards
2 Artifex cards (N2, N5)
Autos: A4, A9

Box 1621 of 6000
11 Galactica 80 Cards
4 Colonial Warriors Cards
2 Artifex cards (N2, N6)
Autos: A10 (MacNee Big Grin), A16

Couple of observations: LOVE the new feel and card stock for the autograph cards! I'm assuming this will be 'de rigeur' for all autos... very nice. There is a problem with the print rubbing off of nearly all the Colonial Warriors cards, in some form or another, which is a shame because they're lovely cards otherwise. Oh, and I notice the foil that makes the wrappers is noticeably thinner this time around, which makes all my wrappers far easier to pack for sending off to Rittenhouse...

Overall, with 3 sketches in the first 6 boxes, I'm scoring these as an 8...

I'm still in two minds about collecting the sketches, mind...

Actually, 4 is right (1:3 cases), which is why the last three boxes I opened are really something of a bonus:

I pulled the same basic numbers of Artifex, Galactica 80 and Colonial Warriors from the last 3 boxes, and the following autos:

A3, A5, A7, A11, A13, A15

which means my case yielded everything except for Starbuck (which I've already sourced once I knew it was very limited) So, I'm happy, but not as happy as I was when I pulled a Martineck Cylon Raiders sketch from the penultimate box! Okay, so I didn't pull a colour sketch, but getting 5 from the case is more than compensation for that and the one auto short...

I'll be scanning all the sketches tomorrow and I'll stick the URL up in the Discussion area... Big Grin
