21x Random Boxes 1999-2004
Gonna be a long post Smile

So I got most of my Christmas shopping done early this year and decided to splurge on me a little too. Was in the mood for a little more retro stuff, even if it doesn't have big hits. My criteria was the box had to be under $30 and have some of my PC guys cards I don't have. Found 21 boxes, average cost $24.41.

Here are the boxes and the "interesting" hits, stuff that books for $5+ or is one of my PC guys.

RE: 21x Random Boxes 1999-2004
Cool stuff, thanks for sharing!

On a side note, who the he*l is ranking these threads (like this one) at 3-stars (or less). Here, the OP took the time to post the results of TWENTY-ONE different boxes in the BOX BREAK THREAD. How is this not a 4-star (if not 5-star) post??? It probably makes no difference, but when I see a whole page of threads that have 0-3 stars something's not right.
