Sep 16, 2015Hello ladies and gents,Posted in: Market Street Café
I picked up 4 uncut sheets from a storage auction in california about 5 years (or more) ago. Two were damaged, one had a slice across the center (seemingly on purpose as it was a cut, not a tear), and two were relatively untouched. Not knowing what I originally had, I sold the two damaged ones to a local collector and it easily paid for the entire auction and then some - which suprised me. He wanted all four, but I simply couldn't let the other, cleaner ones, go. I am now posting pictures of one of the two remaining sheets for the purpose of obtaining any information, value estimates, or comments.
The sheet is in near mint condition in an acrylic-type frame. Any warping you see is due to the light passing through the flimsy front and glares are just that, glares.
The one I am showing is clearly an uncut JSS firework promo sheet. English cards make up the top 60% while the bottom transitions into other languages of which I could only guess - Japanese?
The interesting thing to point out, is that in the bottom left, there is a release sticker for print "press approval". This includes information on the entire print, including card stock type, vendor, printer type, paper set, shift amount, down sequence, print densities, ink types, dot grain percentages, gloss averages, coating type etc. of which I have blurred most out - I don't want someone using this information to some sketchy advantage given counterfeits on the markets these days!! It also includes more info at the bottom (purposefully cropped from the photo) the approval of [name removed by author out of concern for any WOTC employees if this sheet was meant to be destroyed] and acceptance date to go to print. The second sheet does not have this.
I have never, in my decades of trading, seen a sheet with a print press approval sticker. Is this rare or is it common and I've just happened to have missed things like this?
What do you guys think of it?
