Generally, if box 2 is empty, then the Date acquired and Basis are unknown. In that case, when entering the data in TurboTax, for Sale category, select Box D (long term noncovered). Regulations  requiring brokerage firms to report the purchase price changed in 2011, so these would all be long-term transactions.
