Penny Sleeves. I want to protect them. Its kind of a bear to put them in these cheap cases that come with the frame, but I feel its worth it.

Are screwdowns better for long term storage than toploaders?

Unless they have been out for a while, I spotted a few "Phantom Force" sealed small boxes at Walmart. They look to be extra/unsold Star Wars packs from the last 2 years or so as a deal offering.
The contents said something like 4 random sealed packs, I think 4 packs of those Galactic discs and a bonus jumbo pack. $14.88 each if I recall. I wanted to take a pic but left my phone at home.

Saw some people bought some boxes and opened them.Contained 4 packs of Galactic Connections,2 packs of Clone Wars(blue packing,not sure which set),2 packs of JTTFA & 2 packs of TFA series 1.Most got nothing special but did saw a few got a sketch and autograph.I would say don't waste your money,save for TLJ,IMO!!!

Picked up 2018 Galactic Files today. C$29.99 at TRU.

Chose 3 blasters from the case of 12(?) on the shelf. Opened them and 2 were identical base, so 49 doubles and a lot of inserts matched-up too.

I have been burned by Topps multiple times over the years and they did it again. Brutal quality control.

My LCS won't have Hobby until next week, so not even sure I want to check their price.

Over a month to receive a standard form letter email reply from Topps CS. Absolute garbage that they think having near-identical blasters is somehow acceptable. But I will receive a "care package". Yay?

Just got a Brent Spiner autographed card in a local trade. So happy with my haul in the trade.

Walked into my local comics store and found a dusty, sealed 1995 Galaxy Series 3 box buried under everything else. Mine, all mine! Love the Galaxy series cards and still debating whether or not to crack it open. Thoughts?

I’d leave it sealed, but that is because I already have the G3 set. It’s full of fantastic art, so if you don’t already have the set bust those packs.

Thanks! Galaxy series my favorite by far.

So cool to find a sealed pack on the shelves 24 years later!

Like walking out of a time machine.

No doubt. And I completely agree about the Galaxy sets. I love seeing the classic artwork as well as seeing new takes on the SW Universe from lots of different artists with varying styles.

I’ve gotta pick up sone of the most recent release, it’s the only Galaxy product I am
missing.
