Random Box Break: 2010 Razor Ink Vault

I am going to start off on a sad note. Today I passed the card store closest to where I live and it is just now an empty storefront with a huge for rent sign (which is all too common in NYC now). The owner was super nice and it just sucks how tough it is to make a card store work nowadays. Anyways I was craving some non- sport cards so I got a box of Razor Ink Vault from Chameleon Comics which is quite a bit farther from where I live. It was the last box in the store and I am hoping for some great hits. It is guaranteed four autographs and a random non- sport box.

First the autographs:

If you can’t see from the scans, the autos are of Lorena Gale, Gina Torres as Zoe Washington, Stan Winston and Sarah- Jane Redmond as Nell Lang. No one I really care about. Stan Winston is a special effects guy which I don’t know is cool or not.

The sealed box is Smallville. Not bad. I use to watch the show but I lost interest say about the third season. I am a huge comic book fan but Smallville becoming to much of a teen drama if you know what I mean. I really hope I don’t pull a redemption because that would really really suck.

The breakdown:
Base Set: I got two complete sets and 55/90 (61.1% complete) of a third set. If you want one, it is definitely for trade.

Inserts: 3 puzzle pieces, 2 The Powers That Be and 1 Archer’s Quest.

I am never a fan of puzzle pieces because they don’t mean much if you don’t complete the puzzle and I rarely complete the puzzle.

The hits:

Not bad. I got a memorabilia of Superman himself and Tori Spelling does ring a bell. I got two autographs from this product (Tori Spelling and Nell Lang) and the design is such a bore. No thought went to it whatsoever. I also noticed how the Tori Spelling auto uses her name and the Nell Lang is the characters name (the actress is Sarah- Jane Redmond). Just a weird thing I noticed.

All in all I could have done a lot worst.

  1. The Stan Winston card is pretty cool, but I’m impressed by the work his studio did over the years (especially Terminator & T-2.) He won’t be signing any more.

    Tori Spelling would have entertained me (maybe she was playing herself in Smallville? That’s the only reason I can think of for not listing a character name on the front of the card.)

    The Razor Vault stuff is a little too random for me to really feel the urge to take a chance, though.

  2. Tori Spelling plays a character named Linda Lake according to the card and yea the Razor Vault is a bit of a gamble but you can get it cheap these days.

  3. I must admit, I still watch Smallville nine seasons in. I can’t help it. I’ve got to see if they ever put him in the tights. They probably should have done it about 5 seasons ago and ended it then.

  4. Awesome on the Stan Winston and Gina Torres autos. 😀

  5. @lonestarr Either one of them can be yours for the sketch card.
