Continuing with my Serenity luck, I bought 3 packs yesterday (there were about 8 left) and got the Zoe pieceworks card in the third pack. Smile

Weird, though, is that out of about 10 packs total that I've bought I've got 1 autograph, 1 pieceworks and NO OTHER chase cards. Just lots of base cards!

Just bought 2 packs of Star Trek animated and 4 packs of King Kong (aka Kong, the 8th Wonder of the World).

Results:

Star Trek: Walter Koenig autograph Clap

King Kong: Richard Taylor autograph, and C5 video game creature.

Not bad at all, especially after reading everyone's results with the Star Trek animated autographs... I don't think I've seen a Walter Koenig in the breakdowns yet...

Later Wave

i have a rule. unless i ordered a case of a product, i want to open a few packs, maybe a box before i decide if i want to work on the set or open a lot of it. I go to this sport card shop which also deals in non sports. I see they have almost nothing left pack wise. Only 4 packs of Star trek Arts/images, few serenity, and a mish mash box of packs from the last 2-3 years that just havent sold. This place is not exactly NS friendly. i bought all of his dusty box for a buck a pack (20 packs) and his last few smallville and star trek packs....he literally now has no more non sport save a box of star trek arts he has sealed. Go to my car, and just start opening. its looking like a bust 16 packs into the dusty old ones, not any inserts at all. Im thinking the shop has been searched. Then i got an autograph from xena brawn , Josephine davison cleopatra autograph. Made me smile. last pack of the old dustys, its a family guy. Autograph A4 pops out , mike henry as clevland. Again, im smiling. Then i go to the smallville. first pack tom welling season 3 flannel shirt! YAY. Im figuring for the 50 i spent, this woulda been a kick @$$ box on its own. Last pack of smallville...Once again, KARA AUTO WOOT! 2nd time ive had her! Im just cheering. I go to open the star trek arts/images quickly, thinking ok im done.only 4 packs. For real, last of the 2. Back to back, A11 Walter Koenig (limited) auto. A16 george takei (very limited) Sulu auto. I havent had a lucky streak in months...this one was one of the best. heck, the last time i had good luck with packs, i posted it here months ago. Now i have a 3rd store (sorta far drive) i can safely buy packs from. That was the best news of all!
