Admin should pin this post at top of every BGS thread!
I would say most people won’t buy a black label for their collection. Black label collectors live on a different dimension. You should only buy black labels if you’re an influencer. Otherwise psa 10 is more than enough.
Agree it is the best Vmax Alt Art. In fact, the eeveelutions Alt Arts are the best thing to happen to Pokemon TCG. I wonder how is the lacklustre S&V era going to outperform that?
Because you’re looking at it on your monitor screen. Go out to a shop or meet up with a collector to see it in the flesh… See its textures, holo patterns, glitter, etc. See how the card process light and turn it into a dazzling, magical fireworks show display in a small, palm-size artwork.
Maybe some people are anxious to sell for personal/domestic emergencies that need cash urgently?
The thread went main stream:
The E4 cabal’s work is already paying off, good job!
Totally unwise to spend that much money on a black label! Afterall, a black label is only equivalent to PSA 8…
I dont believe everything i see on the internet, therefore i highly doubt this really happened.
I experienced it myself (resub PSA 8 → BGS gem mint ), so I know it’s true.
Let’s agree to disagree
Imagine spending $10K+ on a black label card just to have it sit off-center in its inner sleeve.
I have actually played around with a BGS case before and you can bump it and move it around in the sleeve without damaging the card. But I understand the irony
No worries. I’m not a perfectionist.
Hopefully very soon
I genuinely never understood the hype behind this card. Even when it came out, I thought it was pretty mid compared to some of the other alt arts released at the time. Over 1k for a PSA 10 was already crazy to me… 11k is just insane.
Some people just hate money
I can appreciate the artwork but I always had an affinity towards Magikarp and Wailord GX alt art.
Is this up or down from whatever prices it sold at the during the recent boom?
I know that it was severely undervalued during the actual boom.
Supposedly the last sale from the same seller was $20,000, which is unbelievable.
Man I need a Beckett-friend. We could make bank together.
