Your top 10 pulls from sealed boxes
Picture of ConfusedBoy
This thread is for people who have pulled their top wanted cards (not from a case) Metal or found unexpected more premium cards than stated Eek (as I've noticed on the box breakdown threads ie - 2x autos in a box for Batman & Robin Eek, 2-3x autos in Buffy Season 5 Eek, 6x autos in Hercules Legendary Journey)...

I've not had much luck yet Shake Head to post for this, boo hoo... Shake Head

The Wheel of Time, IMO the best fantasy novels ever?

Hmm, I'm going to have to go off the top of my head but I can post at least my top 7 box pulled cards for now:

(in no particular order)

1. Battlefield Earth- John Travolta auto
2. LOTR: The Two Towers- Elijah Wood auto
3. Charmed Conversations- Alyssa Milano auto
4. Heroes- Tim Sale sketch (Isaac Mendez)
5. WWE Heritage- Hulk Hogan auto
6. Buffy: Women of Sunnydale- Emma Caulfield auto
7. Family Guy Season One- Mark Dos Santos sketch 221/534 (full color Pulp Fiction poster Lois)

That's all I can really think of that I've pulled from boxes for now. I've gotten some other great top end pulls, but a lot were from packs.

Carrie Fisher (SW Heritage...was from a case but given the odds even THAT was pretty good)
Star Trek Animation Cell (1 of 50)
Leonard Nimoy (Star Trek Animation)
William Shatner (Twilight Zone)
William Shatner (Outer Limits)
Arnold Schwarzeneggar (T-3)
Linda Hamilton X2 (T-2 artbox)

Just because it's rare doesn't mean it's valuable.

I'd like to request that this thread is deleted on the grounds that it's depressing. Wink

Nice pulls everyone. I don't think I've ever really had any great luck!

My first EVER sealed box was BtVS s7 and I pulled the PW1 Tom Lenk costume card, with all the gold trim. And by gold trim, I mean there's literally barely any white cloth, there's just tassles, white threads, and loads of gorgeous stitching in gold wirey wool! I know there's others out there, but I think *mine* is especially beautiful. :P

Now they see the sky, and they remember what they are.

Great lists everyone!

Hmm...Not from a case and from a sealed box....I don't have my cards in front of me so I'm going to go off of what I remember. Here goes...

1)Buffy 10th Anniversary Stake Prop Card
2)Complete Highlander Hidden Archive Box
3)Charmed Destiny (right set?) Piper/Leo Dual Auto
4)Alias Season 1 Jennifer Garner Auto (from 1 box when it was 1st released to see if we liked the cards!)
5)Battlestar Galactica Premier Katie Sackoff Auto
6)Battlestar Galactica Season 2 Katie Sackoff Auto Costume card (This was a case ordering incentive that was inserted in the bottom of the box!)
7)Buffy Men of Sunnydale Evil Trio Triple Signed Card
8)Spike Complete Story James Marsters Auto/Pieceworks
9)X-Files Connections Scully Auto Pieceworks
10)X-Files Season 4&5 Scully Auto

In case you don't want to qualify the Highlander box as a "pull" here's the bonus #11

11)Buffy Season 5 Dawn Auto (from our 1st box of Buffy cards EVER!)

Off the top of my head these were probably the cards that we were most excited to have pulled when we got them! I'm sure I'm leaving off cards that might be worth more, but that's not the point! Big Grin

Interesting notes on this list: #7, 9 & 10 were opened on the same night during a SDCC! I'm pretty sure my wife woke up the room next door with her screaming!

The Dawn auto was the card that lit the card collecting bug in my wife. It was the 1st auto she had pulled and hasn't really stopped since!

I'm glad that you all have had great pulls but my list just looks pathetic...

in no order:

Charmed Connections- Piper pw card (leather skirt redemption)

Breygent scifi/horror movie poster cards- a very detailed sketch card from Steven Miller. It almost looks exactly like the movie poster from 'The Fly'.

WitchBlade Disciples of the Blade- three autos instead of the stated two. Thought it was pretty neat and they weren't doubles.

WitchBlade tv series- a pw for the jacket and an auto that I needed for my master set. (it was a good box)

Charmed Conversations- An Oded Fehr auto, I was a big fan of Zankou.

I have a bad habit of buying more than one box of a title so I don't have a great variety and not even a top 10.

How depressing....

Hollypop: I don't think it's depressing! Those are cool cards! The Witchblade Jacket PW is 1 of 2 cards I'm still missing for a master set! lol

The Charmed Connections PW Redemption card is cool too! Congrats!

Here are a few of my faves:

1-Terry Farrell from 1 box of Quotable DS9
2-Torri Higginson from Stargate Atlantis Season 2
3-Rachel Luttrell from the same box!
4-Dominic Monaghan from a retail box of LOTR TTT
5-Joel Gretsch redemption from a single box of 4400 Season 2
6-Thor sketch by Jerome Moore from Marvel Masterpieces

That'll do for now - it's been a long day & I'm off to bed!

Goodnight all! Wave

Any airsofters out there ?
