Here is my impressive 'foil' twiddle!

Came from some boosters I won on eBay from an Australian seller a few years ago now. The boosters have all the hall marks of fakes and the cards are no better though the non foils are better. The foils are particularly interesting and unconvincing.

I actually got 3 boxes of the boosters in the end but they are not even full size boxes.

Ha, looks like a pokemon foil.

You open any Drudge Skeletons in the fake boosters?

Exactly what I thought when I saw it. Looks like a couple I took from dealers when I worked for WotC. Right in the middle of the yellow rat craze.

It's also the same foil treatment that YuGiOh used to give to their Parallel rares from the league events.

I was just browsing for boosters, it was the picture that gave it away.

Each box holds 14 boosters!

Facinating. I never saw one of those.
