Dragon Ball Super Card Game Rarity COMPLETE GUIDE

Dragon Ball Super CCG has a LOT of different rarities. Some sets even have their own rarities called feature rares!

We will go over all the DBS card rarities and what they mean in this guide. This DBS card guide includes 20 different rarities.

We will also be updating this guide, to add any new rarities from any new set that is released.

How to tell how rare a DBS card is?

You can tell what rarity any Dragon Ball Card is by looking at the bottom right corner of the front of the card. It should have a few letters on the end, these letters are initials for what rarity.

The first part 'BT8' is the set, which in this case is set 8 - Malicious Machinations. 

The second part '136' is the number from the set. So this card is #136.

The third part 'SCR' tells you how rare a Dragon Ball card is. SCR is an acronym for Secret Rare. We will be outlining all the rarities in this guide.

So from looking at the bottom of the card you will be able to tell what set it's from, what number the card is from the set and what rarity it is.

It will become pretty easy to you once you get familiar with the rarities in this guide.

LET'S BEGIN

We will start off with the Dragon Ball Super Card Game rarities that you are most likely to come across. 

Common 

Acronym: C

The easiest of the bunch to come across. You will probably have stacks and stacks of bulk, absolutely filled with duplicates of these. They are really good if your chair or table is wonky and you need something to steady it out. 

Common cards also come in foil version. Some sets have 5 foils per booster box. Other sets have 1 foil per booster pack. Either way, the foil versions are much rarer than the basic non-foil Dragon Ball Super common cards. 

Uncommon 

Acronym: UC

uncommon dragon ball super card uncommon

These also come in abundance, you would be able to make about 3-6 complete uncommon sets from one booster box alone.

Same as the common version, these also come in holofoil version. There are usually around 1-7 foil uncommon cards per booster box.

Universal Onslaught had a really low rate with only 1 uncommon foil per booster box. It always varies from set to set.

Rare 

Acronym: R

Now we are getting out into somewhat exciting water, better than common and uncommon - but still fairly common because you are usually guaranteed 1 rare card (or more) per booster pack.

There is about 30 rares per booster box, so they are fairly easy to come by.

Just like the common & uncommon the rares can also come in foil and non-foil versions. 

Super Rare

Acronym: SR

Super Rares are always foil version. They have really nice artwork and look great.

Usually you get around 6-8 super rares per box, it varies from set to set.

Special Rare

Acronym: SPR

Special Rares are pimped out version of Super Rares. They have the same name, same number and exactly the same attack as their Super Rare counter parts.

Everything is exactly the same except the image. For example, this photo of Prince of Destruction Vegeta, Prideful Warrior BT11-066 is exactly the same card as the SR above - it just has extremely better artwork design.

Special Rare's are usually 2 per box nowadays. In earlier sets such as Galactic Battle and union force SPR's were 1 in 4 booster boxes! 

When people want to add a little bling to their deck - they usually swap out their SR for SPR for max level wow.

Due to the pull rates of special rare cards, prices will continue to climb for older out of print cards.

Secret Rare

Acronym: SCR

dragon ball super secret rare cards

The cream of the crop right here. This is the ultimate goal when opening any booster pack. This is what you hope for when you go to sleep and hope you will be one day lucky enough to pull one of these bad boys.

The price on some of these is in the thousands and thousands.

SCR are extremely limited and rare. Sets usually have between 1-3 Secret rare cards and they can only be found in around 1 in 6-12 booster boxes. 

The pull rate for Broly, Ultimate Agent of Destruction card shown in the image above, is 1 in 24 booster boxes.

Others like Son Goku & Uub, Seeds of the Future is more common and found in 1 in 4 booster boxes.

Promotional Cards
