Ok guys. So, most of you know I've had some pretty bad luck as of late in breaking.

Well it all turned around with this release. My friend's comic shop got one lonley box of bbt in. I quickly saw they were only selling by the pack. Almost in a frantic mode, I asked "how many packs are gone". They replied none, as no one showed interest.

So, asked how much for the box. (I get 10% discount, it IS my friend's shop after all lol). $92 and change. WELL......... I'm still on cloud 9 as of today. Seriously. Biggest hit of my life.

Here it is, and that's my friend who sold me the box lol.

WOW!!!! Congrats!
I'd be kicking myself for selling it, lol.
He's probably happy that you got it though then some stranger
I'm glad no one bought any packs and snagged it.
What was your auto and costume hit?

Wow, I'm amazed at how many redemptions have been hit so far in 3 days and how many single box purchases have yielded an auto costume card.

Oh, forgot to mention I hit Penny auto..... lol jk KRIPKE. I think crypto/printers do this on purpose, "let's give them a redemption, but no $$ auto" lol. I did get a nice Sheldon *slight* variant tho. I forget which # tho.

I look at all these wardrobe cards... then notice the pics on them... Seems as though they'd have enough shirts/vests/jackets/t-shirts/tops/blouses/tanktops/sweaters to last for a decade of these sets the way the cast layers clothing.

When I opened a box I opened one pack and it only had one card inside. Nothing special, just regular base. Also had another pack that was already open. Contained a Sheldon wardrobe and about 5 other base cards. No biggie on the opened pack, but still, it was opened.

Do I contact Crypto about the pack only having 1 card and the already opened pack? Where do I go to contact them and what will they do more than likely? Never had to contact them before this

You send the redemption card in and then the send the real card to you

Each card should bring $800+++
First one sold for $1,100!

Well I sent in a ticket/email to Crytpo about the one card in a pack and one of the packs already ripped open. Hope to hear from them soon and hopefully they do something about it. Wouldn't mind an extra two packs or something.

Your Sheldon wardrobe was more than likely supposed to be in the pack with the single base card but somehow ended up in a regular 5 card pack. The extra pack thickness then prevented it from sealing properly.

I had almost the same thing in a box...a pack with a single base card, but the very next pack was extra thick...it contained 5 base cards and the Penny Auto/Wardrobe.

Sometimes crazy things happen on the packaging line.

Rusty2Rules is correct. Wardrobe and Autograph/Wardrobe should have only 1 card with them. I'm not sure what happened on the line, but it looks like those two packs got the contents mixed up. All in all, you got the right content from the two packs: 6 base cards and one insert.

Just opened my two boxes tonight before my case next weekend. I had something similar happen where I had one pack with 2-3 extra cards and one pack with just a single base card in it.

The other box brought a smile to my face with a penny auto/relic in it however. May contact crypto and see what happened with that other box with the one card pack. Them's the breaks I suppose.

They must be back up responding to various issues. I got a Wil Wheaton autograph in my case and the ink was all smudged up. I sent a ticket in Wednesday evening and not heard anything back. I too hope they can do something for me, he was one of the signers I really wanted.

Here's my break from my two boxes I opened. After seeing all the amazing hits on the forum, I'm pretty disappointed in my pulls. Definitely wish I got way better autos really. Wardrobes weren't too bad I don't think, haven't seen many Leonard's boxers around. But sucks I didn't pull a redemption, top auto, or auto wardrobe.







I have one more box coming middle of this coming week, so hopefully I can pull some better stuff.

Autos are for sure up for sale. I'll probably put them up on eBay in the morning, if anyone is interested let me know. BO members get first dibs
