7th Ed Booster Variant

Post by GlobalBoosterHunter » Mon Jul 17, 2017 5:28 am

I just received some 7ED English boosters to fill my missing "Made in Belgium" gaps. I bought from Europe in the hopes that I wouldn't get any that were "Made in the USA" because I already have them.

Sadly they are also "Made in the USA" so I am still looking for some "Made in Belgium" but all was not lost.

Other than the obvious difference in foil colour, we have a slight difference in the printing colour, the printing on the right booster looks very grainy in comparison to the left, the (R) symbols look to be different and the really obvious is the font used for the barcode numbers. The rest of the writing looks to be the same under the fold.

The crimping looks to be about the same though and they are both "Made in the USA" bought at the same time from the same seller.

I have written to the seller, they don't look like they have any left unfortunately.

Hi Mark

7th Edition was printed in two different locations in the U.S.A. Also, I believe that a blister pack version exists (to be proven, but there's no reasons that after 5Th and 6th Editions, they didn't do 7th Edition). One of these 2 reasons should explain the difference between the 2 boosters.

I knew they would be out there somewhere, I bought from Greece in the hopes that they would be selling the Belgium packs. Next time I will ask rather than assuming!

So I have to locate a set of Belgium boosters and the remaining 4 orange foils, as well as Portuguese, that core set is proving more difficult than it should!

7th Edition boosters have 5 different illustrations on the front. Now according to the Gold and Orange colors, one more thing needs to be verified, it's the existence of:
Regular pack, orange, Made in Belgium
Regular pack, gold, Made in the U.S.A. (according to Mark those exist).

I have looked all the Foreign 7th Edition boosters that I could none of them were with orange only gold.

I have the Regular pack, Gold, Made in the USA. Several sets.

I am just missing the regular Gold Made in Belgium, which I am sure exist, I just haven't got any.

I have not seen any orange "Made in Belgium" so far in any series but around the apocalypse era there were plenty of Orange boosters, but I will check.

Yes, we know that regular Gold and Orange exist for Made in the U.S.A.
Question is: Do that variant orange exists also for Made in Belgium.
The Orange boosters exist for a bunch of expansions:
Urza' Saga
Urza's Legacy
Urza's Destiny
Invasion
* Planeshift
Apocalypse
Odyssey was red

This is a Planeshift booster (Draco illustration by Sam Wood) where Sixth Edition Green packaging was used but. It might be a Test Print booster:

Hi Mark:

All my five US-made orange ones are still unopened; I wouldn't mind swapping four of them out for gold ones. Just let me know.

Sharing is caring (Not mine, but was appropriate to post as I was looking for the Orange color boosters involving Planeshift, and I remember I was having those pics in my files).
