The Wartortle and Squirtle are also strong PSA 8s with 3-D stamp errors. In the pictures, I focus in on the PSA fugitive ink technology to prove authenticity and that the card nor case has been tampered with.(See the swirl lines within the label). Extremely Rare Gray Stamp Error (Blastoise). Extremely rare 3-D stamp (Wartortle AND Squirtle). Only 391 PSA 8 graded 1st Edition Blastoises in the world.
Only 1 of 3 gray stamp Blastoise's available right now, and this is the highest grade available. Note: PSA does not recognize the fact that Blastoise is a Gray Stamp Error card; they do not recognize thick, thin, or 3-D stamp either, as BGS and CGC do. This is why it is not on the label of the PSA casing.
BENEFITS OF THE GRAY STAMP AND 3D STAMP. Great to add to a 1st Edition Gray stamp OR 3D STAMP only collection. It is an uncommonly known printing error that occurred in 1998/1999. The gray stamps range from light gray to dark gray.
See the importance of the PSA label and their new technology in my pictures. This is the newer, advanced casing. MY PRICE EVALUATION HAS BEEN DETERMINED BY THE FOLLOWING. Demand for the item is extremely high compared to supply. There are no recent highly graded Gray stamps available.The gray stamp has anywhere from 2-5x premium.
