So I have a question. In buying one booster box (30 packs)of any given expansion, what is a conservative "compete rate" for that given set .. minus the UR.
I have a bit of extra money and am gonna make an order at Hills. They have some boxes that are sort cheap.. like $8 For a booster box of mirror mirror or QC, for example. So I'm curious to know how many boxes of each to buy. Obviously there is no hard fast rule as packs are randomized. But I don't want to buy say 6 booster boxes, fill 80% of a set after 2 boxes .. then I got 4 more boxes which will mostly be doubles. I realize I can sell them but still. I have limited spate money for this hobby .. too many other one's :p.
I have little to no cards from most expansions (I most have premiere, first contact, ds9, voy. Once I collect say 85% per expansion, I can buy singles to fill the gaps.
Hope that helps. Good Luck!
I fully realize it's likely a next to impossible question to answer but it doesn't hurt yo try:)
Edit. Sorry for the typos. Typing in the dark, on my phone, next to sleeping beauty .. who is drooling all over her pillow. God I love her lol.
Depends on the set size.
WB Premiere had 121 Rares with no UR, so you'd need 5 boxes minimum to complete a set
AU had 40 Common, 40 Uncommon, 40 Rare (one of which - Ophidian Cane - only appears in an uncommon slot) and the Ultra Rare Future Enterprise
QC had the same setup as AU with Data's Body being the "Ultra Uncommon" and no UR.
At 30 packs per box it will only take 2 of each to complete a set minus the Future Enterprise, which is a 121:1 shot to hit in any given pack.
Mirror Mirror had 40 C, 40 U, and 50 R with a UR (First Officer Spock). Again, two boxes will likely get you a base set, but the UR is a harder thing to pull. The good news is FOS isnt that expensive to buy on line ($10-15, less on a good day) if you don't pull him.
