Question MVP-TESLA-HOFC Stamp

Has anyone ever seen an MVP TESLA that is a pearly swirl green and a gyro rim? I found one the other day and have been trying to research its origin but only find the HOFC stamp on the Photon and Wave. Wondering what year these were stamped and if they have any value?

Thanks!

These are what some people called FX. It is simply Proton plastic with a bit of the compound they use when making their Plasma plastic put in during the molding process. Some others called them transitional. They have played around with adding this plasma compound to both Neutron and Proton. Some people consider these somewhat as a unicorn discs because they were mixed in with the normal Neutron and Proton releases.

Thanks, that is pretty cool. I really like the feel of it but haven’t thrown it yet. Another th NF I found interesting was that I couldn’t find any Tesla’s that had the HOFC stamp, only the Photon or Wave. Maybe I will hold off on throwing and keep in my collection pile.

This stamp was released to dealers on Photon and Wave; the IDGC / event host got some exclusive molds -- at least Tesla, maybe another.

kind of a unique find.

and if you do throw it, tesla's are fantastic throwers... and will do whatever you ask them too with consistent fade.
