How to find s-chinese Invasion Foils

Post by mmgun » Wed Feb 11, 2015 7:25 pm

Since in simplified chinese Invasion all Foil cards were printed in english, is there a way to distinguish them from regular english Invasions foils ? ( except for the alternate art cards)

All the basic lands (20) exist in foil, distribution only on theme decks.

I think what mmgun means is it possible to distinguish english invasion foils that were opened in s-chinese invasion booster boxes, compared with english invasion booster boxes?

It would be possible if one language was made in Belgium (corners back cut) and one in the USA (corners front cut).

So with your theory, it should be possible then:
Invasion
Made in Belgium: S-Chinese
Made in USA: English

Nice! Actually, I have more experience with non-foils, I'm certain about that. But I see no reason why they should ship foils only around the globe to pack them together.

Do you have info about Mercadian Masques, too?

A lot of info is still missing.

Ah, I have seen that before. It grows longer and longer. When we have this complete, we can write to Guiness :-D

I don't know much about this particular set, so I hope I'm not about to say something dumb.
If some of the cards on the sheet were alternate art versions, then that would guarantee that the Chinese English cards were printed separately from the regular English ones. This would make the possibility of all English foils being printed together (with some shipped elsewhere for use in the Chinese set) even less likely.

That was also what I thought would be the more probable scenario. Otherwise, this would have been a huge logistical challenge.
