Nice find :wink: If you decide to open one of the starter , let me know, as I need to verify something. I only have a sealed Starter Box, and a sealed Starter, so can't verify myself, as they belong to my sealed Portal Second Age Collection.

Totally regretting buying two boxes of JP Born of Gods...even with 3 foil rares it couldn't save my investment...bad ratio of Mythics

Trollpost ? 5 and 4 MYthics in 2 Boxes seems decent.

I'm just saying despite my love for JP cards, I didn't come anywhere close to breaking even on my two boxes...I was left with buyers regret. But I liked showing off my spoils, since I did find some JP boxes.

I concur. Thought I was going to see one of those three-mythics-per-box boxes. Not bad, imho.

If boxes were <120.00, then it seems equitable.

Surely some temples would add value to his purchase.

Was not to be--No temples or Brimaz (!!!) in two boxes...also sad was lack of forgestroker dragon, on a more personal level. Was not trying to troll at all, I really felt my foil rares were kind of underwhelming. I ended up spending ~$120 apiece when shipping was added to the equation.

Maybe I can sweet talk Terese Nielsen into signing one of my foils...

It seems all my mail decided to arrive on the same day. I'm now getting grief about the number of packages arriving (I'm sure some of you can relate).

Some foreign books/magazines/encyclopedias

LOL, to quote a non-specific source: "how soon they forget".

I remember the day when......... how many basic lands in a booster?

I pulled the 5 critter enchantments and the plainswalker in my Korean box and I am absolutely thrilled. Only 12 cards short of the complete set in one box. The foil phoenix caught the attention of a local gamer who rounded up 11 of those cards to trade for the phoenix and an uncommon foil he wanted. Only one more to go.

Clay;

I was out of the shop and half way back to the apartment when I realized what I had done. It was one of the more stupid moves I have made. I was just trying to put my set together and not at all thinking outside of the box. I just don't multitask well anymore, specially the last few days.

Sorry, my friend.
