Then it'd be 1:1,429 and if only 10,000 were made. However, if you're looking for a Daniels auto, just pony up the $100 and buy it versus a $15 gamble.

Although, maybe you know some poor saps still collecting connexions and can sell off those packs to lighten the loss

Just think, that Harrison Ford auto (if it exists in the product) could have been pulled already by a kid, sitting in the bottom of a toy box bent in three different spots, or put in the tire spokes of a bicycle.

Kid: Hey Mom, I just found a signed "old man" card in my box!
Mom: I'm sorry dear, they can't all be Admiral Ackbar autographs. We'll have better luck next time!

Retail hasn't been around that long, but it essentially came about to draw children back into the hobby.

Wow, Connexions packs go for that much on Ebay?

My local dollar stores have boxes of them for $1 a 5 pack. I might have to clean them out.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me again, and I'll buy even more packs!!! haha

I found 4 more of these, 2 were the same as the OP, and 1 contained one rogue 1 mission briefing instead of 2 journey to the force awakens.

I have 1 more unopened I am tempted to just return, but I know my curiosity of what could be in there will get the better of me. I think I will open a connexions store.

So I opened my 5th total box. No autograph, but slightly different:

FA Fat Pack (NOT series 2)
Clone Wars x2
JTFA x2
Connexions Series 3 x4 (all prior boxes had 2x series 2 + 2x series 3)

I think this box showed up after the other boxes at that store, so maybe they are moving on to only series 3 connexions now. And if anyone likes to be a sucker, they sell them on walmart.com now too.

I just found two more boxes, same usual contents with the exception of one box containing a Galaxy series 5 pack, and the other contained a Galaxy series 7 pack.
