    When I first started playing the CCG I had money for one pack of BB Premiere. I bought one and pulled Obi-Wan. I went back the next day and bought two more...pulled Darth Vader. A few weeks later I bought four more and pulled Han and the Falcon. I haven't had a string of luck like that since.

    What packs I do but I've been very lucky with.

    I pulled a WB Vader from my 1st anthology, I was flabbergasted. Yes, flabbergasted.

    On the other end of things, I pulled a pack of Reflections II that didn't have a single rare in it, and I already had the Literature card and a non-foil version of the foil....

    I just about had a heart attack when I pulled a Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight foil out of Reflections 2. Same thing when I pulled Emperor Palpatine out of Death Star II.

    First time I bought, I bought two packs. I pulled a Red 5 out of one, and the Death Star out the other one. My cousin, who was getting me into it at the time, nearly decked me. :)

    I'm shcoked by the times I'd buy a Jabba's Palace pack (or get one in a box of something) and ALWAYS get a bib fortuna in one. :D Along with a passenger deck.

    I wonder if I'll ever get Ree-Yees, the single card I'm missing from that set and also the only bounty hunter I don't have.

    About a month after Dagobah came out, I bought 4 packs from different boxes and had Yoda in every single pack.

    When reflections first came out, me and my friend both bought a single pack from the same box at our local store. Each had a non-foil Cap'n han and a foil Epic Duel.

    Well, the best pulls i ever had had a huge build-up: ever since SW:CCG came out, I've been looking foirward to getting a Death Star 2 card, I just love how the DS2 looks and just wanted a card of it. Flash-forward to DS2's release, I buy a box and a half of it but didn't get the card (did get Palpatine though which was cool), nor was it in the other half of the box (friend split that one with me). So, moving on, one day in January/February as i was checking to see if a Reflections 1 box I had ordered had come in yet at my local comic shop, I saw that it hadn't and went and pulled two packs of DS2 and two packs of Reflections 2. Got home, opened the R2 packs, and the first one I opened had the freaking DEATH STAR 2 FOIL CARD. I was like "yes! what a way to get it!". So then I go to open the DS2 packs, and whats in the first one I open? the non-foil Death Star 2 card. I was just floored, absoultely amazing, and I was just so damned happy that day, my friend couldn't believe my luck (he, too, quests for a DS2 card).
    The downside is I think the non-foil card is flawed- a slight white/grey smudge is on it in the lower left area of the image. But, oh well, nothings perfect, at least I got the sucker.

    Your DS2 card could have an ink smudge on it. Mine doesn't have the grey spot you mention.

    I bought 4 packs of R2 the other day. In 1 pack I got Foil Emperor, R2 The Emperor, BB Premier Luke and Obi Wan Kenobi.
    Second pack I got Luke Skywlaker, Rebel Scout, Luke's Lightsaber, and Anakin's lightsaber.
    Those were my best pulls of all the packs I have bought.

    most damaged cards seem to have those "ink smudges" except theyre whiter than grey. it happens when the cards rub against each other I think. lots of my YJ cards get smudged, especially foils. :mad:

    Anyone pulled a Hoth blank??? I got one and someone once offered me $30 for it.

    Of course, I refused. ;)

    Yeah, one of my friends pulled one from Hoth and like an idiot I told him to send it to Decipher. He got a new pack from them that included something stupid like Yaggle Gakkle. Then we found out that people were paying big money for them and he wanted to kill me ;-) Oops.

    I recently inherited a collection that included a blank card from SE. I traded it for a Ben Kenobi, so I think I've redeemed myself.

    Blanks have a light or dark side back on them but the front is devoid of anything and is all black. It looks kinda like someone took a black magic marker to them and covered everything up.

    I could scan mine for you if you'd like so you can see one.

    Oh, I bought a pack of ANH I think it was, and I got the Limited Death Star! It was going for 50 bucks at the time. I also have an unlimited one too... so guess which one I play with?
