A while back, I found this box of DBZ boosters and nostalgia hit me. Back in the day I remember getting a single pack of these and pulling an all silver Porunga card. I thought it was super rare or something, but lost it over time. After seeing the box, I see that it’s normal to have a card like that, since they come in every pack.
Cracking it open I get a whiff of 90’s game stores and childhood. The packs themselves are pretty thin and we’re during a time where variant pack covers were non-existent.
The cards show scenes from the show and a description of the scene on the back. Since they’re old, and made of a smooth card stock, they ended up sticking together. But, unlike the Tek War cards I unpacked, the stock is a better quality and they didn’t tear when coming apart.
After opening 13 packs, I’ve assembled almost all of the series, missing probably 10 or so normal cards and 1 special card. Hopefully I can display this set in completion and not have a gap or two.
As I open the final pack, I see that RNGesus was not looking upon me today. I am missing just 6 cards to the series, but I had fun looking at the old art and look forward to putting them in sleeves
