Are there any sealed/full boxes out there that we know of? IIRC there was someone at Wizards who had quite a few boosters at least and was doing most of the selling (if I recall, his wife makes good cookies...?)

I'm just randomly spouting words of what I remember. Hopefully it jogs some memories.

From what I remember, there was someone at WotC that had 2 boxes of summer boosters. One box, the packs were sold through TnT individually (or through Jim Bruso, or both). The other box is still sealed and I believe the owner's thoughts on the matter are "you'll get it from me when you pry it from my cold dead fingers".

I paraphrased slightly, and took some creative liberties, but I believe that sums up the situation to the best of my (potentially uninformed) knowledge.

Gary, is it you? :P And is it just a full box, or actually factory sealed with plastic wrap?

Nope, not me Matt. Never got interested in them.

Wow, sealed summer boosters have got to be the rarest and coolest mtg items ever! At least in my humble opinion... I can't even fathom an entire sealed box of summer boosters! :-O

The only hypothetical find that would be more awesome would be a sealed alpha or beta booster full of two-cards-showing extreme miscuts (including a lotus of course). I suppose in theory one could confirm such a find by carefully scanning it without opening it. Not sure I can think of anything that could top such a hypothetical booster...

Congrats to both of you all who got the summer boosters!

A friend that was teaching English there sent them to me when he got back to the US.

Found a sealed pack of DCI #70, question is, do I keep it sealed?

I see two equally viable options.

1) Open it and send me one.
2) Send it to me sealed....

Fling and Sylvan Ranger were printed with two different DCI numbers.

I'm interested in purchasing the #70, sealed of course.
