Good luck! I love the English crystals. They can be a real challenge to get good grades on as well. No matter how easy @milhouse makes it look. Haha. I’ve already been disappointed twice now in my search for a PSA 10 Crystal Kingdra.
Still waiting for my psa returns, one of the cards was mislabeled so my friend had to call psa and get that fixed, hopefully I’ll get them next week.
But that doesn’t stop me updating this thread, got these bad boys yesterday!
Just fantastic looking cards, big thanks to @darkrai .
I understand this totally! Part of the reason, in my opinion, is that kids and younger collectors don’t immediately recognize the value and rarity of Gold Stars. To some, they look like an average Holo with neat artwork. This would explain why you see Gold Stars mixed in with lots of 500+ random cards.
Finally after all the possible ( and impossible ) delays I finally received my cards back, someone at Finnish postal services decided to send my package to totally wrong city, ~200 kilometres from where I live. But without further ado, pictures!
Yes @timewaster1700 , it was like a Christmas to me when I got results from my friend: 7x psa 9 + 9x psa 10! Honestly I was expecting Rayquaza/Shining Charizard to be 8 but psa gave positive surprise this time, both nines. Can’t complain about that.
For bonus picture we have PSA 10 Crystal Crobat.
Oh man, this has been one of the hardest card to find for me, there just wasn’t any psa 9-10 listed on ebay for months. Luckily @thecharizardauthorty was nice enough to sell one from his latest psa returns. So thanks again for that, now I’m done with my crystal collection at least.
