Hmm...well, I have no virtual idea of what this is worth, but since it's my first sketch card ever, I thought it was pretty cool. Smile

3 packs of Star Wars 30th - Justin Chung sketch card

It's the first one in the puzzle set. My scanner's not working or I'd use that, lol.

I know buying loose packs is great.Just one tip,never buy loose packs off of ebay.It is so obvious that people just search the box until they find that great card and than put the rest of the packs up for sale.But buying loose packs from an opened box that a dealer is selling is alright.

Actually, it's funny because the store I bought the three packs of SW cards from is notorious for picking out the best cards and selling the rest of the packs after. I almost never buy cards from them for just that reason. When I pulled the sketch, I so wanted to go shove it under their noses...I refrained, but barely. I would never buy loose packs off eBay, that's just askign for trouble!

Not always the case- I managed to pull a John Ritter autograph out of Buffy season 2 packs I got off eBay in 2002. Of course, the autos were harder to find back then, so it would be harder to cherry pick them.

I got impatient waiting for my case and boxes of Supernatural cards. So I went to my local comic shop (never pulled ANYTHING good from these people) and bought five packs to see what the base cards were like. And on my last pack, this was hiding in the middle...



Not my favorite brother, but OMG!!!!!!!!!! I was shaking. And my boyfriend claims I shrieked a couple times. The luck I've had the past two weeks has been unbelievable, but I've never pulled a card this good from so few packs, from something I actually collect.

On a much smaller scale, yesterday I bought four packs of Transformers out of the blue and pulled one of the memorbilia cards and three foil inserts.

Or one lucky girl, as the case may be. Wink

Thanks everyone! I'm still a little in shock, but it's starting to wear off now. Now I'm back to being impatient for my real boxes. Razz
