I’ve accomplished 50% of my goals thus far and here they are.
Master PSA 10 Masaki set
EDIT: Played around with Machamps Label since it read “Vending Promo” instead of “Masaki Promo” (PSA will fix this free of charge, so that’s the next step is to change the labels to please my OCD and have them all slabbed in the new clam shells.)
Master Red & Green Holo gift set
Has anyone else accomplished or started their goals for 2015? My next goal will be the Natta Wake set!
Congrats! Must be rewarding to complete your goals haha. I wouldn’t know seeing as I always change mine halfway through.
Also, I know the Masaki set is incredibly hard to get in PSA 10 but I was wondering what the main “problem” with the cards is as I’ve never owned any myself. I know they can have indentations from the folder, but are there any other common issues with the cards?
THANK YOU! and yes very rewarding (mentally and financially on my wallet XD) haha, I tend to do the same in some cases.
They were only distributed for a limited amount of time in Japan during the evolution communication campaign, After you did your part and mailed in any of the stage 2 evolutions + pass card/Bill’s PC they would mail you back its counter evolved form, Problem was when media factory shipped them out, to my understandING they were shipped in little paper envelopes and were often times damaged in transit, additionally a lot of folks left their cards in their original packing to reserve them from the conditions, at some point in time when they decided to remove the card from its envelope most of them would have 2 compression creases (top left & bottem right) which PSA will automatically ding down to a 6 when spotted, other then that it faced alot of other common problems most cards had I.e centering issues, general white spots, and edge wear. I’m sure someone else can elaborate better then I.
@nauticads@drewcastle It took about 14 months, I graded personally the Alakazam (Have a spare on ebay), Gengar, Bought Golem from @starhatpokemon, Omastar from a friend in AUS, and Machamp from ebirdman. I’ve graded each one at least 5 times (except Alakazam,) Most pulling 7-9’s the majority of the time.
