Misprinted Portal Three Kingdoms Cards?

Post by berkumps » Sat Dec 09, 2006 9:47 pm

I'm sorry if this has been discussed before, I tried searching the misprint forum for stuff on P3K but couldn't find anything about this. I was putting my English P3K cards in pages, and noticed the following weird sequence of numbers:

Trip Wire 154/180
Trained Cheetah 155/180
Trained Jackal 155/180

I was under the impression that the collector number went in alphabetical order with each color, hence Trip Wire should actually come after Trained Cheetah and Trained Jackal numerically.

Also, both Trained Cheetah and Trained Jackal have the same collector number 155/180. Is this common to all English P3K cards of this name? Is this same misprint in the other P3K language editions?

Thanks for the help,

Wow, they were really sloppy with that set.
My Japanese Trip Wire is 156 and jackal is 154

Looking at the cardlist on magicthegathering.com ( http://www.wizards.com/magic/generic/ca ... cklist.txt ) it seems that the cards should be numbered:

Trained Cheetah 154/180
Trained Jackal 155/180
Trip Wire 156/180

which is what one would figure. Does anybody know if "all" English P3K Trip Wires and Trained Cheetah's are numbered this way or only some of them?

Thanks,

Mark

This is a well-known numbering misprint in English P3K.

In japanese, the Burning of Xinye was printed as 'wildfire', and numbered as though it started with a 'w' in english, so about 20 Japanese P3K red cards are misnumbered, off by 1.
