Just to clarify, the Yearbook is 250 boxes not cases.

I'm guessing you knew this, but just making sure others do too.

I patiently waited for my name to be announced, but it didn't happen. Perhaps Barrie lost my entries Big Grin.

Its wonderful to finally have a Who release with such a good ratio of sketch cards. Clap

I have long envied the Star Wars etc fans who get 1 sketch per box!!!! I had to start Who trading card collecting with 1 AUTO per case with Cornerstone in 1994. Shake Head

Times have changed for the better indeed. Thanks for a great release, Barrie and co. Thumb Up

With 9 to 10 sketches per case this release will have at least 720 new sketches. This is about the same amount of sketches as the last set. With some of the best from the last and lots of new ones. Should be great and i can't wait. Clap

Yes, Barrie also mentioned that the response is very very good and as its just 80 cases, supplies are depleted very fast. In addition to the 12 boxes per case, there are also 6 binders included inside the case. Have to say that its really good value for money even though it cost me quite a bit of money to ship to me.

The sketches shown on the website for this set is just amazing!!!!!

I actually got an e-mail from Barrie fairly quickly, but after reading the last couple of posts I'm guessing I might be able to get a box, as in ONE box.

Even though I'm kind of upset I really don't know why. I don't know if I could afford to buy a case (as they're something like $700-800 usually) but the fact that I probably won't even get the chance sticks in my craw. Maybe because I have no idea how SI is portioning these out and I feel somehow cheated?

One way or the other I'll grow the heck up and learn to live with it. Maybe I'll get a super sweet Chris Achilleos sketch in my box. Then all will be forgiven.

My birthday is next month, Barrie, if you're reading this. Keep that in mind when you pick my box! Smile

It's a limited release of 80 cases and SI are offering it to regular customers first i.e. those who buy cases from SI. It is only right that they are offered to people who support SI and then if any are left others can get in

The sketches do look fantastic.

I know that many artists have drawn new (fantastic) stuff for this release, and there appear to be some sketches "left over" from the previous release - eg the Chris Achilleos sketches are amongst the ones illustrated for the Trilogy set.

Perhaps some were held over from that, in which case the overall total number of sketches for the 2 releases won't be quite as high as we may think?

Am I making sense??? Confused

Believe me, I understand that and I was hoping that the tone of my post indicated that even though I was a bit cranky I also knew I was being irrational. As it is, with the passage of a day I'm much less irritated (but probably still just as irrational).

Also let it be known that I've spent a fair bit of money with Barrie in one way or another since 2001.

Hmm that is what it says on the PDF about the release but in the email Barrie stated 80 cases made and 300 Binders made so I think it is just 1 binder per case as standard ?

I did confirm with Barrie that each case will contain 6 free binders and he said yes. However, the figures don't add up as 80 cases with 6 binders each will result in 480 binders. But the PDF advert says only 300 binders. One can only assume that in actual fact, 2 different binders were created. 1 for the case offer and 1 for direct retail. And of course, I could be wrong here......

So this offer was only for people who ordered online before with you, ok. Now I understand why I didn't get an email. I always buy them on Ebay.

Will this be the same for the yearbox boxes, because I'm really interested in them and there are just a few.
