Talking Ace Tennis Hidden Signatures S4 case break ... WOW!

If you looked at my previous breaks of this product, you have seen that I have had a lot of luck pulling a lot of big names. So I had to try out a case to get the guaranteed celebrity and dual signed balls. The boxes come in 4 rows of 5 boxes, I opened the outside 10 boxes first.

Box #1
Kim Clijsters shirt card
Bode Miller (skier) auto ball

Box #2
Marat Safin shirt card
Rafael Nadal / Bjorn Borg dual auto ball

Box #3
Richard Gasquet shirt card
Rafael Nadal auto ball

Box #4
David Nalbandian shirt card
Chris Evert auto ball

Box #5
Nicole Vaidisova shirt card
Andy Murray auto ball

Box #6
Robby Ginepri shirt card
Maria Sharapova auto ball (in red ink)

Box #7
Andy Roddick shirt card
Caroline Wozniacki auto ball

Box #8
Roger Federer shirt card
Rafael Nadal auto ball

Box #9
Ai Sugiyama shirt card
Chris Evert / Martina Navratilova dual auto ball

Box #10
James Blake shirt card
Michael Phelps (swimmer) auto ball

So half-way through the case, and I've already hit the 2 celebrity signed balls and 2 dual signed balls that are supposed to be in each case, plus several big names. I seriously considered selling off the other boxes, and actually waited 3 days to open the rest. I finally decided it would be too much trouble selling the boxes individually, and figured I had hit so many good balls, that even if the rest were mediocre, I would still break even.

Box #11
Nadia Petrova shirt card
Jim Courier auto ball

Box #12
Anastasia Myskina shirt card
Bjorn Borg / John McEnroe dual auto ball

Box #13
Ana Ivanovic shirt card
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga auto ball

Box #14
Novak Djokovic shirt card
Rafael Nadal / Bjorn Borg dual auto ball

Box #15
Maria Sharapova shirt card
Roger Federer / Rod Laver dual auto ball

Box #16
Anna Kournikova shirt card
Michael Chang auto ball

Box #17
Dinara Safina shirt card
Andre Agassi / Steffi Graf dual auto ball

Box #18
Elena Dementieva shirt card
Roger Federer auto ball

Box #19
Ivan Ljubicic shirt card
Serena / Venus Williams dual auto ball

Box #20
Rafael Nadal shirt card
Roger Federer auto ball

Needless to say, I was happy I opened the rest of the case. I still can't believe I hit 7 dual auto balls (supposed to be only 2 per case), plus all the other big names. Based on this case, I had to open a 2nd one this past weekend, and while it was a good case, it wasn't nearly as good (only hit 2 dual auto balls, and fewer of the big names). I will try to take pictures of the 2nd case soon and post the results in the next day or two.

Also, I will mention that if you decide to buy boxes or a case of this product, make sure you buy from a reliable source. The shrink wrap on the boxes is plain (wish it had the Ace logo on it), and it looks like they used left over 2007 Straight Sets retail boxes for this product, just switching out the styrofoam insert for the ball and resealing the boxes. So just a heads up if you buy a case, it will look like it has been opened and resealed with plain tape (again, wish the tape had the Ace logo on it).

Finally, in each of the 2 cases I opened, I got 1 ball signed in red ink. I wonder if this is an unannounced parallel, and if so, how many of each red ink signed balls there are?

Awesome break! If anything is available, I certainly would be interested in seeing the 2nd case and then hitting you with a PM.
