As a side collection to Pokémon i have been collecting art sets of sealed Dragon Ball Super Booster Packs for a while now whenever a new set came out.
Unfortunately i missed the boat on the Tournament of power booster packs, at the time i was thinking of buying them they were around £20 each and passed on it, now i can only see them for around £200+ each so i think i will only be collecting the main sets and skipping the specialty ones like TB01 for now.
DBS-B11 Vermillion Bloodline packs came in today! Added to the OP
I also have DBS-B10 Rise of the Unison Warrior & DBS-B12 Vicious Rejuvenation on the way which will bring me up to date with the current sets! The Next set after that is due for release in April.
Recently DBSCG have been doing something called a “Premium Pack Set” which is great for me since it’s a box of 4 booster packs (1 of each artwork) + 2 Promo cards.
Today’s DBS-B11 packs are from the Premium Pack Set 02 (B10 will be from PP01 and B12, PP03)
Makes collecting artsets much easier + get the bonus promos!
Yeah it’s nice they have mixed art of the whole of Dragonball on the packs rather than sticking just to super.
The scans don’t do the packs justice i’ll have to upload a few pictures of a couple to show them properly later on, they are a lot more flashy than Pokemon packs as you can probably tell by the bright colours some of the backs have.
The Universal Onslaught Pack art of Cell always reminds me of the roll safe meme
I’m sure the packs really pop in person just given the (final) flashy nature of the show. I’m also glad they incorporate more than just Super. Looks like they also have Z, GT and Heroes which is pretty neat. It’d be nice if they showed some OG DB some love.
Also not too long a go i received a special envelope from a sweepstakes i entered a while ago and forgot about! I think it was available if you had a premium Bandai account in the US but all i had to do was fill out a Google form which was advertised on cardmarket.eu at the time.
Interesting update today, I had ordered the latest Premium Pack Set to get the usual art set of the latest set [Cross Spirits] but when i opened it up there were only 3 out of 4 artworks (i had double Jiren)
So i decided i was going to open one of the Jiren packs and go and buy the other i was missing from a LGS and ended up weighing both packs (1 weighed 23.04g and the other 25.5g) I opened the 25.5g and it turned out to be a god pack! my first ever which was pretty cool
