Default Cujo's Star Wars Galactic Files 2 case break! Quite possibly my best case ever??

hey gang, decided to nerd it up tonite while some of my friends are off for Gen Con this weekend. I haven't opened much this whole year, so really looked forward to this break. I'm seeing less than stellar sketches unfortunately being opened, and my case was no exception. I do like the first page, and I love the Lord Mesa one as well. Obviously my case was auto heavy, as shown below. Onto the hits!

Starting off with the Gold, hit 3 including a Boba Fett 10/10 and another 10/10.



I absolutely love these medallions, and I believe I did well hitting Darth and Boba Fett, plus some other nice ones. Also hit a nice plate here:



The Sketches (again I do really like these in the first page)





BUT I definitely cannot complain about this case, as I'm still in shock quite honestly hitting the Hamil & Fisher!! I honestly never thought I'd hit one, nevermind both!



Overall, I'm obviously quite satisfied. I do think Topps is very hit or miss though in regards to their collation breaks!! Some people are hitting great cases, while other cases are less than good. Anyways I wish you all the best on your breaks of this release!

i'm curious, did you get any of the Classic LInes (CL), Honor of the Fallen (HF) or Ripples in the Galaxy (HB) inserts?

i opened 7 boxes. put together 2 complete base sets and 2 partial sets, with lots of extra singles. got almost all the Galactic Moments (GM) inserts. got tons of The Weak Minded (WM) inserts. but zero of the other inserts. am i missing something? they're on the checklist but are they not part of the set?

by the way... awesome case. congrats!

Hi, yes I did pull CL's, and a ton of "Ripples in the Galaxy". I'm not sure if I have any HF's tho as I'm exhausted from the break, but will check tomorrow.

And thanks Dash!

Awesome case Nick!!! Great to see you get both the Hamill and the Fisher autographs. It could've only been better if you hit the Ford/Mayhew dual autograph.

There must be a ton of Ralph Brown autos in that product because I see his card in lots of breaks.

Thanks guys, really appreciate it. After looking at scoundrel, and other forums for case breaks, collation seems to be very crazy from Topps on this release. No set "case hit" in some instances, which really puts the brakes on from me trying another case.

Dan Curto posted on Facebook about these ... it's an alphabet of Star Wars characters, but the lettering is Aurebesh - so I guess that's the Aurebesh character for J?
