Sailor Moon Amada Pull Pack Cards

Thursday, July 16th, 2020

I feel like I have been waiting forever to write this post but its super worth it! I finally have the full set of theĀ Sailor Moon Amada Pull Pack PP Cards scanned and uploaded into the gallery. This is huge for me because the Amada PP set has so many cards (consisting of 766 cards + 12 Special Cards), it took me years to scan all of it in. Amada is one of the largest printing companies in Japan and they definitely went all out printing Sailor Moon cards when the show was broadcasting in the 1990′s. I want to use this post as an opportunity to highlight some of my favorite cards from this massive cardĀ set.

Sailor Moon Amada PP Set 1 Prisms #1-6

Set 1 actually has 2 different sets of prisms. First set is cards #1 through #6, and the other is cards #43 through #48. Its the first prisms #1 through #6 that are pretty rare and costly. In fact, there is only one Queen Beryl card in the entire massive Amada PP collection, and here she is in card #5.

Sailor Moon Amada PP Set 6 Gold Cards #265-272

In Set 6, Amada surprised the fans with 8 gold foil cards. I love these cards because aside from the etching of the Sailor Senshi in front of the gold foil cards, in the back are these beautiful color prints of the girls. They are unfortunately easily damaged and fairly hard to find, so if you have these, protect them with plastic sleeves!

Sailor Moon Amada PP Set 8 Silver Cards #369-376

Amada surprised the fans again in Set 8, where they released it with 8 silver foil cards. Same as before, the front of the silver cards have special etches of the Sailor Senshi. The back has beautiful color prints. Again, they are easily damaged. I admit that my own set is starting to show some cracks in the back of the cards. So protect them dearly!

Sailor Moon Amada Zenin Gold Cards #641-643

The Sailor Moon Amada Zenin Gold Cards are extremely extremely rare. Their numbers are sandwiched in between the PP13 and PP14 card sets. They were special prized cards that can be redeemed by mail from Amada, and came enclosed in a small special cardboard file. These days, the Sailor Moon Zenin Gold Card sets are worth every bit as much as the rare 22k Sailor Moon 5th Anniversary Gold card, and can command anywhere from $2500 up to $3000 or more. Wow!

Sailor Moon Amada PP Set 14A Silver Cards #686-693

Amada released another set of gorgeous silver cards in PP14A. However, different from previous silver cards, these were printed using a different method. It has color images overset on top of the silver foil. These cards look really beautiful and are also pretty rare now (I know you guys don’t want to hear that from me LOL).

Sailor Moon Amada PP Set 14B Cards #694-705

The Sailor Moon Amada PP Set 14B prism cards are absolutely gorgeous. These days, because each card can command up to $35 in cost, obtaining a full set can be costly. But many card hunters still do it because look at it! When you put the entire set together, it is seriously eye-candy. The illustrations are beautiful.

Sailor Moon Amada Special Cards

Last but not least, Amada released a set of Special Cards. This set is full prism and revisits some of the best designs for the cards, mostly during the period of Season 3. The Special Cards are hard to find these days. I haven’t seen the prices for these go through the roof yet, but I almost think its because people don’t really know about these cards. So grab ‘em if you can! There are only 12 cards to this set, so it is very possible to complete.

I hope you guys enjoyed my stroll through memory-lane with the Sailor Moon Amada Pull-Pack PP Card set. I really enjoyed collecting it, and it did take a few years for me to complete both collecting and scanning. Because it is such a massive set, it may be a hard goal to complete if you are to start now. But if you embark on your own happy journey to do so, please use the gallery as a reference guide for you.

Amada did go on to produce other cards that came with toys, stationary items, Hero cards, and also Memorial Cards. But I will save those topics for another post, on another day. Enjoy everyone!
