Hi, could someone help me with an idea for the price of this card please?submitted by sheepman24 to dragonballsupertcg [link] [comments]
Bought a couple of booster packs a few years ago hoping to get into this and nothing materialised out of it.
Just had this sitting in a sleeve. Pretty mint condition.
I have seen some prices from £75 and some outrageous prices of up to £850. So I don't really know what it is worth.
Thanks for any help!

Link to card
First time I ever participated and it was a blast! I managed to finish quite on time even, with lots of time to spare to put my thoughts to paper. A few of the squares were hard, and I started out with half of them meticulously planned out, but later on that all went in the bin and I shuffled around quite a bit. I did took the opportunity to start some series and classics I had on the to read list. Downside is that I now have bigger to read list than before. Overall I am quite satisfied, on to next year!
LGBTQIA List: Tamsyn Muir: Gideon The Ninth. 4 stars Love it or hate it, but I really liked it. The setting was interesting, although many questions are still unanswered, really curious to dive into the sequels. The memey dialogue was a plus for me, it works for some reason, and although the plot was at first a bit vague, it really picked up after essentially becoming a locked room mystery. The ending caught me off guard.
Weird Ecology: John Scalzi – The Kaiju Preservation Society(H). 5 stars If Jurassic Park was written today it might have been like this. It’s over the top, and leans into that, just making a great amusing book. Unlike something like Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy which really exaggerates its absurdity, Kaiju Preservation Society plays it straight, plants its tongue firmly in the cheek, and winks suggestively at the reader. I did like how the main character is not described and has a gender-neutral name so the reader can create their own character. I’m sad there is no series for this.
2+ authors: Aaron J. French et al. – The Gods of H.P. Lovecraft(H). 3.5 stars A nice collection of stories, each centring on one of Lovecrafts famous creations (and a few on those of his contemporaries), not all of them evenly strong, but it kept me going. Some twists here and there, but they stay quite close to the source material.
Historical: R.F. Kuang – Babel. 4.5 stars Hot diggedy damn, this was a blast. Might be my first foray into historic fantasy, and it was a blast. Tore through it in a week or so, absolutely addicting. I do like language and etymology, so this was right up my alley. Interesting magic system, the tackling of colonialism, still relevant to this day, great book. I really liked how the story unfolds, there´s some real character growth there.
Set in space: Dan Simmons – Hyperion. 3.5 stars Wow this took some pushing through. Not because I didn’t like it, but it’s rather dense, and I had some trouble with a few of the stories. The Scholar’s Tale really broke me though. Hyperion sets everything up for the sequel, definitely picking that up soon.
Standalone: Thomas Olde Heuvelt – November(H). 5 stars One of the perks of being Dutch is reading Thomas Olde Heuvelt before the rest of the world. So I was kind of hung up if this would count as SFF at first, but there is a definite supernatural threat in this story, even I fit doesn’t tick all the boxes per se. It’s set in our world, though no connections with his earlier novels appear (making it standalone as far as I’m concerned), there is pretty much no magic, and the fantasy becomes more of a mystery thriller. This man has a writing style that just wants you to keep going and going, the intensity turned to max as the pages dwindle, and the ending really caught me off guard. Could also go for mental health, but that one was already filled.
Anti-Hero: Naomi Novik – A Deadly Education(H). 2.5 stars I had some difficulty adjusting to the infodumpy writing style, it felt clunky and unsubtle. I did like the setting, really mysterious and confusing at first, and really sets stuff up for sequels. Perhaps a bit too YA for my tastes, but I might read the rest of the series later.
Book Club: William Goldman – The Princess Bride. 4.5 stars I used this card to check up on a few classics that I hadn’t read yet, this one fairly quickly topped the list. Although I must admit I haven’t watched the movie, and pretty much know the memes. Really fun read, funny and cheesy, and the interjections from Goldman were hilarious. Still haven’t watched the movie, I promise to do it soon.
Cool Weapon: Richard K. Morgan – The Steel Remains(H). 4 stars Took up this one initially because of how I saw it frequently described als bleak and grimdark, which piqued my interest. To describe it as ‘gay Abercrombie’ would be a disservice, but it definitely ticks the same boxes as Abercrombie, except the world is not as corrupt as his. I liked Gil as a main character, his sassy remarks definitely scored for me.
Revolution/Rebellion: C.l. Clark – The Unbroken: 4 stars Sometimes you just pick up something just because the synopsis interests you. It was my African square at first, but after Scarlet Odyssey I switched them, because it definitely fits hard mode. It had the same vibe as the second book of The Burning series, where a warrior gets wrapped up in the politics of the court, but this time we get more inner conflict and contrasting priorities. The action was nice, but I thought the political games were more immersing. Book 2 just came out, for sure diving in.
Name in the Title: Scott Lynch – The Lies of Locke Lamora. 5 stars Yeah, this was top of the readlist when the card first was posted, so it was a shoe-in. Exactly the stuff I love to read. Nothing more really needs to be said what hasn’t been said already. Again, snarky main characters are a plus for me.
Initials: N.K. Jemisin – The Fifth Season.. 4 stars I never read a book in second person before, and I though it would be weirder, but it wasn’t that hard to adapt to. Had to take a while to get immersed in the story, not a lot of lore is revealed at the start, but when it got going I couldn’t put it down. I did predict a twist that came later on, but was completely fooled by another one, and that really cemented me diving into the next book soon.
Published in 2022: Stephen King – Fairy Tale. 4 stars Yeah so while this has some of Kings most notorious flaws (meandering, slow at first, ending sort of rushed) I did like it. Yes, it takes quite a long time to get to the point, but what I love about King is him setting the scene and settling in the normality, only to completely screw it over when the plot kicks in. No horror and monsters here, but a real Narnia-esque fantasy story, with all the cliches of a fairy tale, but still that King twist.
Urban Fantasy: Brandon Sanderson – The Alloy of Law. 4 stars If someone told me the second Mistborn trilogy would have a sarcastic gunslinging detective as its main character I would have read this years ago. Wax reminded me of a less R-rated Gil from The Steel Remains, but not with swords. I did wonder how a detective novel would have a series created around it, while still having that satisfying solution at the end, but I should have trusted Sanderson more.
Africa: C.T. Rwizi – Scarlet Odyssey(H). 4 stars This was the final book I read for the card, was fearing I would run out of time but man, this ons took my head and plunged me right under. I like how there is not really a big climactic battle, the ending is rather subdued, but builds up tension and foreshadowing towards a plottwist that I didn’t see coming (even though I should have, The Fifth Season did the same). The African lore merged fine with the more sci-fi magic system, but I am curious to see how it develops in the next book.
Non-Human: Actus – Cleaver’s Edge(H). 2 stars Yeah, this was a hard one. I love the idea, really disliked the execution. The litRPG system took a bit of adjusting, but wasn’t really all that different from some isekai-manga I read. The low-stakes plot was fine, don’t think you should read this if you were looking for epic high fantasy, but what killed it for me was the writing. I don’t know how many times I could read ‘the tall woman’ or ‘the small woman’ as descriptors, but jeez it was a lot. Really took me out of the story. If you tell me book 2 gets better I might try it, but not soon. Also I consistently pictured Ming as Noodle from Gorillaz.
Timey Wimey: Douglas Adams – Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. 3.5 stars I did struggle a bit for this square, mainly because I wanted hard mode, but after a lot of dragging about I just went for it, after all, I really should’ve read this sooner. I did expect some HHTTG-style shenanigans, but it never went that silly, even if it became quite silly. The plot was a bit messy at times, but it all wrapped up quite nicely.
Short Stories: Angela Carter – The Bloody Chamber and other stories(H). 2.5 stars A nice read, not too challenging, but had to admit it didn’t really stick with me and it became a rather forced read. Perhaps I should try it once more later, I did try multiple collections for this square, but none of the others really stuck the landing.
Mental Health: Sara A. Mueller – The Bone Orchard(H). 3.5 stars This was an interesting one. One of the more bizarre setting I read, but it was intriguing. Definitely came out of this with more questions than answers, but also really curious to re-read it sometime for another perspective. Part of me wants sequel, part of me says it’s fine as it is.
Self Published: Alex Hudson – The Book of Zog. 3 stars After Cleaver’s Edge I was…on edge trying another low stakes self-published novel, but this was a pleasant surprise. There were definitely higher stakes, and the twist of a kind eldritch horror was fun.
Runner Up: Marie Brennan – A Natural History Of Dragons. 4.5 stars Didn’t expect to love this as much as I did, but it turned out regency-style fantasy appeals to me. Of course, dragons also appeal to me, so perhaps I should have known. There was a nice mystery involved, I liked the breaking of the patriarchal society that Lady Trent forced upon her expedition, and the book made me curious about the sequels, we had a fun time.
BIPOC: Victor Lavalle - The Ballad Of Black Tom. 5 stars Had this on my radar for a while, was really curious to see the notorious story adapted. It was chilling, definitely didn’t lose the occult atmosphere and mystery of the original work, while twisting it in a more modern route. It was fun re-reading The Horror at Red Hook and picking out the differences.
Shapeshifters: John Gwynne – The Hunger of the Gods(H). 5 stars Best book I read last year. Totally my thing. The Northern inspired setting, the twisting POVs, the almost Marvel-y plot, epic battles, a perfect blend between imaginative and cheesy. Really looking forward towards the next instalment. I do argue that although there is a wolfshifter prominently appearing in this book, it is definitely not the most important one, that has to be Lik-Rifa.
No ifs, Ands, or Buts: Liz Braswell - As Old As Time (H). 2,5 stars Grew up on Disney, and Beauty and the Beast is still among my favourites, so this had some shoes to fill. I did like the refreshed take on the familiar story, the characters still feel like the Disney counterparts, albeit less goofy. Gaston definitely goes from bumbling macho to toxic misogynist. The ending did fall flat for me though, I was expecting a differing twist, but was let down with how it turned out. The build-up towards the ending was really interesting though.
Family Matters – Nicholas Eames – Kings Of The Wyld. 5 stars My re-read for this card, because this is one of my favourite books already. It reads like a movie, or a homebrew DnD campaign. The deliberate use and twisting of cliches is great, the references to 70s rock bands are fun to pick up on, and the main characters are so uncool they are cool again. I love stuff that owns its own silliness.
