When was Star Birth (S9) series released ?
The Star Birth series was released on 14 January 2022 in Japan. It is part of the Sword and Shield era and includes VSTAR cards of Pokémon of its generation. It is the first edition to offer VSTAR cards with for example the God of Pokemon, Arceus!
How many cards are there in the Stars Birth series ?
There is a total of 100 collectible cards in this series, with on top of that a lot of secret rare. Namely, there are 27 secrets rare full-art holographics: a big series!
What are the reasons for the success of this edition ?
We find full-art cards in secret rare which are simply magnificent and therefore very prized. In a Booster Box of 30 boosters, we could hope to have 2-3 of them, but the high demand make us think that these cards will become very rare.
This is especially true for the beautiful Secret Rares like Charizard and Arceus. The Gold cards (Gold color) are highly appreciated by Japanese collectors. And you, what do you think?
