Why are so many in/from Taiwan? I think i've seen this mentioned before that most of the hits would be coming from there, but don't understand the joke. Are the cards made there then shipped to the US (world?) and people buy (steal) them before leaving the country?

They get their cases a couple days before the rest of us, so they have the first cards listed.

I looked at your auto PC a while ago. Very impressive quest!

On the Tier One subject, I was lucky enough to get a Darvish Silver Auto redemtion /10 in a case break here in the forums!

Yes was the worst set of boxes. Tip for everyone if you can find this under $100 buy it.

Probably intentional. Just like Marquee/Museum, the nice stuff is heavier than everything else so it's very easy to weigh out the goods and dump the rest. By throwing in the extra relic in 3 packs, it serves as a "decoy". Not a complete deterrent by any means, but who wants to take a $100 chance that the heavy box might be the crap autos/relics?

No problem. It's fun keeping track of them. I am sure I will have stiff competition, but I am definitely going for it. I would love to get all of the Tigers players.....if I was rich.
