You have not spoken with me but with Marco. Thats fine anyway, he is handling the signature service by mail.
Glad you are excited about that :blush:

This is exciting! I am interested to hear which cards/items people choose to get signed. Also, the price has gone up from 5 euros to 15…

Yes sadly it’s true, not our decision, but it was directly from Arita

I guess he’s afraid he has to sign TOO much cards, which I can honestly understand… He would like to explore your event and talk to people himself, without having to non-stop sign cards 24-7 I can imagine.
(I’m glad I send mine over when they were still 5 though. :wink: )

Since it will still take quite a while before I got them back, I’ll just tell it in advance. These are the 8 cards I’ve send in:

  • English XY Evolutions Theme Deck Pikachu
  • English XY Evolutions Pikachu
  • Japanese CP6 1st edition Pikachu
  • German XY Evolutions Pikachu
  • French XY Evolutions Pikachu
  • Italian XY Evolutions Pikachu
  • Spanish XY Evolutions Pikachu
  • Korean CP6 Pikachu

Pretty cool that I will soon have a complete XY Evolutions Pikachu set in 7 different languages, all autographed by Mitsuhiro Arita. :grin:



I can appreciate that he is afraid of resellers, and 15 is still not a bad price at all. Hell, it is nothing compared to what some baseball players get to have a ball signed…
