Actually after looking at a bunch of the Frieza the Master cards on eBay a lot of them have a date of 2003 instead of the 2000 which I do not understand, maybe he sent in one of the 2003’s and they didn’t think it was authentic since the card games “sets/sagas” follow the shows timeline so it wouldn’t make sense for a Frieza Saga card to have a date later than a Trunks Saga card… I really do not know.
I still think it is cool they are grading some of them at least.
The 2003 is the GKI version. The GKI URs come in two types of numbers–they can be numbered UR# or just numbered what they are in the set. Since the foil patterns for the GKI URs is the Frieza Saga pattern, the only way to tell whether a set-numbered Frieza, the Master or Super Saiyan Goku is a set UR or GKI UR is the year (2000 for set URs, 2003 for GKI URs).
So did PSA.
PSA has graded the Gold Foil Saiyan Saga Wrapper Redemption promo’s in the past and I think some promos. I have contacted them I think last year about autographs and they can only authenticate Sean Schemmel.
I got so damn much Score cards left (full foil sets, majority of the promo sets, even a bunch of Ultra Rares) it’s something that never will happen. None of the cards are in mint condition any more or have any value. Nobody is gonna buy a PSA5 or 6 GenCon Worlds 2001 Stamped Goku’s Dashing Punch (which without the stamp is the most over printed promo ever in the tcg) .
An eBay listing for $119 is not a confirmed sale. I got 6 of these Piccolo’s in my binder. And the “POP 1” is a ‘valid’ reason for people to add a big premium. Cards like the Trunks High Tech from the Redemption, Champions Drill, Victorious, Victorious Drill and the Uber Rares, yes. Those probably will cash big. But I mainly refereed to my own binder, probably only 60% of them are in PSA9 quality, and many are just foil commons. And I doubt many of my promos etc. will fetch $100+.
DBZ CCG never was a popular TCG but yet it’s still played by a lot of people (within my former play group, we still have almost 60 decks. Decks will all staples cards, decked out with foils when possible. Uber and Ultra Rares every where) and slapping them in PSA will destroy that for people. DBZ CCG just doesn’t have the art appeal (maybe come of the CCPP/IR promos/Tuff Enuff and Redemption High Techs) like Dragon Ball Super TCG has to bring in the big bucks.
I have been speaking to PSA and have confirmation they are grading all score DBZ cards (with the exception of promos).
As a result, i have been acquiring foil copies of these cards and just find myself in a trance,the foils score produced just look amazing, especially rare foils which would have unique patterns. Will be sending in a nice sub in near future.
I sent away 9 of the URs a few years ago, when I was feverishly into collecting them.
They were sent back ungraded and I can’t remember the specific designation, but it said that there wasn’t enough information.
