A Note About Starter Boosters

Post by texsue57 » Sun Feb 12, 2006 5:59 am

I was browsing through the rarities section of the site, and noticed that one page shows Mon's Goblin Raiders as a starter only card from the Starter set.

I've opened them out of packs before. Has anybody else encountered this?

Are you sure you aren't thinking Starter 2000?

I opened 3 boxes of Starter 1999 boosters.

I got at least 3 of every rare. I got 15-19 of every common.

Except those commons from the starters only. Which included Mons Goblin Raiders, of which I have none (yes, sadly enough, I kept a spreadsheet on the Starter boosters).

I don't think starter 2000 had boosters, but I am about as certain as I can be that starter 1999 boosters didn't have the Raiders..

Hi.
Did you get them from Regular Starter 1999 Boosters or through the Demo one?
http://www.magiclibrary.net/rarities-starter.html
In the last case,it's normal that you've find some Mons Goblin Raiders in Demo Game Boosters ;-)
On my part,out of 4 Starter 1999 Booster Boxes that I opened,I Never found a Mon's Goblin Raiders.

Well, normally I would just relegate it to my memory being faded, but when Starter came out I bought the box set and 3 boosters and ended up with 3 Mon's Goblin Raiders. I can remember thinking how horrible my luck was because I pulled rares out of boosters that were commons in other sets.

I remember it clearly, because I bought them at On-Cue music stores when they were still around. It was the only time I bought magic cards from there.

The goblins are still common, they're just printed incorrectly.
