Argue about cards, repost your old cards you’ve asked about 1000 times already, or talk about new stuff. Just be pleasant and share with others.
>>45481961Which Gen 1-5 Mon has the fewest holographics across all series?
>>45482142no idea but I'll guess paras because paras is just the worst thing
>>45482156>>45482173I'd be surprised if it's a Gen 1 mon bc theyve had the most sets to tryHard mode: no unevolved forms
>>45482173I though this too but there's actually quite a bit of gen 2-5 nobodies with less cards. Even going by artwork only ie base=base2=lc kadabra still isn't last
>>45482183Kadabra isn't allowed to be printed in sets since eseries that's why he said but as I mentioned before he's still not last
Post reverse holos. I like them but they get scratched so badly, just the tiniest bit of grit in the sleeve and this happens.Also, dark types didn't show very well in expeditions, but it got ironed out in the later sets. Tried to get an angle where Altaria wasn't glowing like the sun but it was impossible.
>was hoping to get full art Nessa>got Leon insteadNot great, not terrible. Still have six packs to go through.
>>45481961show off neo era stuff, the patrician sets
>The VV Blisters I ordered that were meant to be here a week ago finally arrived>Utter trash in each one>>45482943God I wish I didn't miss out on Neo. It felt like everwhere around me went up to Team Rocket and stopped until the EX serieses started coming out.
>>45482964It's not too late anon, you can still buy singles or boosters if you're feeling like spending a lot of money
Are jumbo cards worth collecting?
>>45483120Depends, they are hard to store and a bit of a niche market Some of the old school jumbos (like legendary collection zard or crystal crobat) are worth a lot iirc, but I don't know about modern ones
Oh hey it’s me againPost your error cards woooo
>>45483120If there was a legitimate binder that was made to store them the way regular cards are stored I would collect the shit out of themImagine opening some badass Pokémon tome that just has pages and pages of full art cardsShit would be fucking awesome, but for now I simply don’t know how I could store them safely and also enjoy looking at themAm I supposed to store them in fucking Manila envelopes ?!??
>>45483032I would but I've already got a bunch of sets I'm going for and I don't want to get into debt.
>>45483120I normally give them out as gift or famed them
>>45483699I can't remember exactly when, but I have a sick Gengar Holo pull from one of my first packs a month ago after getting into tcg. It's the one where he's partly standing behind a wall. Do you have that Gengar?
>got a misprint energy card from unlimited first releasehhnnggggi'm gonna cum
>>45482943Damn I did a lot last thread, reposting cause I’m lazy
>>45481961>dark clamp?????What's next, a wooper using wing attack?
Neo Discovery is hands down my favorite set, I love looking at it completed. Sorry for the crappy pic but it’s quite difficult to photograph a full spread.
>>45483879it's definitely the goat set. so many classics
>>45483966You mean millennials?
I just want the bubble to burst so I can collect EX and Neo stuff in peace.Granted I'm also waiting for the inevitable new Regi cards. Might start a collection with those boys
>>45484097You’ll be waiting a while
I won a Chinese vmax pikachu for 11$. Well 6$+shipping
>>45483762>Do you have that Gengar?Never heard of it, I’m gonna need a pic to know
>>45483294I keep a couple in binder pages that are made to present a whole sheet of paper. Probably not the ideal choice, but I couldn't think of any other way to store them.
>>45484875I am confused by what this is supposed to look likeCan u post a pic or a pic of the item from a store or some shit
>>45485075Ohhhhh duh now I know what you mean That’s a pretty good idea if you ask me, it’s better than nothing I just wish a company made a binder specifically designed for them, that would be awesome
>>45485097Someone really should, as I don't think they'll stop making jumbo cards and they'll keep adding up.
>>45485177Yeah. God damnit, I’m gunna have to start collecting them now and just copy your systemGOD DAMNITTTTTT
>>45485097>>45485177That would be pretty neat, having a binder where every page is one big card.
>>45485362Yeah I think so too. Imagine an illuminated manuscript type tome with all the details and fancy shit in Pokémon fashion instead of old biblical shit Each page is just dedicated to each jumbo card It would be appropriately bulky and prestigious lookingFuq
Daily reminder I have the best collection on this board
>>45485450A schizo btfos you
>>45485450Idk about anyone else but I still think it’s cool to own a Psa 10 card of anything. Yeah yugioh is shit on, but that card does have nostalgic and monetary valueI would be glad to own it even if I don’t collect yugioh otherwise Also, shut up
>>45485463Where is the schizo
>>45485472He’s probably talking to his girlfriend, Leaf.In other words, he is talking to himself while he rocks back and forth in a tub of mayonnaise and urine
>>45485450>not sdk or lob
>>45485450Not so fast mother fucker
>>45485450>>45485745Stop making fools of yourselves. Everyone knows that *I* have the best collection on this entire board-- no, on this entire site!
>>45485450Not 1st ed. It's not worth much.
>>45485450but i have more than you from just a kid and that isnt even pokemon pretty sure many people have better collection than you
>>45485913>>45485933Can you post something new?
>>45485988This. If you're going to spam your collection, let's at least see your rarest Togepi instead of the same two pictures.
>>45485893That's the Dark Duel Stories promo, there is no first edition version. That card is worth a very hefty chunk of change but I doubt it's their pic
>>45485988i dont need to post anything more
>>45485913>>45485933Ohhh shit folks the Schizo is here!Did Leaf tell you that I gaped her with a nine iron last night?
>>45486088Alright well then refrain from posting that for at least a month it’s getting old.>>45486092
>>45486088Post your fucked up tooth
>>45486111I will always find it funny that you are so paranoid, SO schizo paranoid, that you always put a red blanket under your cards so we can’t see your floor because you think that will somehow give away your locationPost your fucking floor or im going to flay Leaf like a salmon
NOBODY ACKNOWLEDGE SCHIZO UNTIL HE SHOWS US HIS FLOORLOOK SCHIZO, LOOK AT MY FLOORREMOVE THE RED BLANKET AND STOP LIVING IN FEARSHOW US YOUR FLOOR OTHERWISE UR CARDS ARENT REAL
>>45486162say what you want lies wont effect us but she tells me alot of things to be safe and its not a red blanket its one of my jackets i use to hunt pokemon outside it doesnt matter since i deserve and have more better cards than you even when i was a kid
>>45486196NO FLOOR= CARDS ARENT REAL
>>45486196correction: your mom used to buy you cards because you threw temper tantrums and physically abused her
>>45486208HEY!The only thing you are allowed to say to him is NO FLOOR = CARDS ARENT REAL
>>45486207it makes no sense since they are real though so you lost
>>45486231NO FLOOR = CARDS ARENT REAL
>>45485913>>45485933>>45486111>>45486196>>45486231Say whatever you want about Leaffag, but really his collection is amazing. I'm jealous.
>>45486207>>45486231I don't know which of you two faggots is the real schizo around here lmao
>>45486249Kek He doesn’t have a floor, which means nothing he says can be trusted, ergo his cards are all fake
>>45486272..do you not have a bed sheet?Also, I can tell by that carpet that you are on the east coast USA, I’ll be at your house in about fifteen minutes to go spelunking in Leafs caboose
>>45486272Love the figurines and drawing.What are the packages down there? You bought cards?
its old picture i have pillows now but it proves i have a floor so you lost no excuses you arent allowed to post that picture anymore i showed because i dont like showing it
HE DELETED THE PHOTO CAUSE I WAS ABLE TO TELL HE LIVES ON THE EAST COAST OF USA KEKKKKKK
>>45486294its a pile of drawings its just it wasnt meant to be in the photo at that time and the figures are the best she needs more merch screw gloria
>>45486308Be nice. It's not his fault that he didn't know carpet distributors tend to be regional.
>>45486196NO FLOOR = CARDS AREN'T REAL.
>>45486336Fair enough, I got what I wanted
>>45486329Nice.I want to collect Marnie figurines and cards.
>>45486357Atta boy comrade
I've been thinking about getting some of my collection graded. Idk if it would be worth it.
>>45486370Cute collection. I had Jungle set as a kid but it got thrown away. I will get myself some cards, especially the Weepinbell one. The art on that one is amazing.
>>45486388Jungle art is so kino
>>45486388also for jungle jigglypuff in the set is actually a shiny jigglypuff before they were actually shiny
>>45486406The Flareon is amazing too! I'm so jealous.I will definitely collect these once the prices cooldown from the hype.
>>45486386>bunch of random trashPost Pokémon or fuck off.
>>45486474i have the english version japanese i think is rarer
>>45486474One of the best card arts
Watching Leaffag and the rest of you guys post absolute based collection made me kinda sad that I returned to the hobby in the worst time. All these cards are super expensive now and I won't get my hands on them. I just started with Champion's Path and it's a boring set except for the Shiny Charizard V that I just pulled. The rest are trash.
>>45486544I'm not a nigger
Any of these worth more than $20?
>>45486528it's slowly going down
>>45486528what cares are u wanting the most then that are expensive?
>>45481961Any of these worth more than $20
>>45484989holy fuck why do they hate mantyke so much
>>45486500i love my mewtwo its not too rare but its my fav i don't care if its played etc
>>45486557What is this app?>>45486560No. I collected the first editions and jungle set as a kid and I'm so salty that it got thrown away. Now I want to collect them again and just look at the amazing art. Most of the new cards' art is shit. I do not want to invest. Just enjoy looking at it in my binder.
>>45486566>this card is 12$ due to it being the only mantyke card
>>45486585>that OG Lapras artProbably an unpopular opinion, but fangs don't suit the nature of that pokemon at all
>>45486624such a pretty charizard wish i had this card but was going through some harder times and they didnt buy me cards anymore during this
>>45486585crobat V and the shadowless charmander
>TFW when my only fully complete sets are both from the BW series, and one of them is the Radient Collection subset, exclusing Japanese decks.I have so many near-complete sets in English and Japanese but only 2 complete sets and 4 complete Japanese decks.
>>45484989How did you know this lol
>>45486691noooo wrong card shit
>>45486691Get out of the thread, junkie
>never got base Charizard as a kid>have to settle for evolution Base Charizard It’s not the same, but I don’t have throw away money to get the real deal
>>45486566Because the TCG as a whole has never known what the fuck to do with baby Pokemon. After gen 4 they went "fuck it" and dropped the mechanic altogether. Bonsly and Mantyke just had the misfortune of only getting one card each before babies were removed from the game (babies did come back for one set in gen 7, but neither of them made the cut).
>>45486691Acid is bad for you anon.
>>45486649Dang that's it? I just pulled that Crobat V from a single booster I bought the other day on a whim, first one in a decade. I also have a Shadowless pidgeotto lol
>>45486701fail, but people collects what they want,,, but not was on propuse
>>45486703Also, Pichu hasn't had a new card in well over a decade.
>>45486306>>45486329>>45486635>>45486702I don’t know why you guys are acting like it’s rare, when I can get base Charizard for $12 bucks easy You guys got trick into thinking your Charizard had value
>>45486706i can't take drugs, im medicated. i only collects some blotters... but i can't do anything.
>>45486730That’s very weird. Cool I guess, but weird. I haven’t dropped in five years and I’ll probably keep it that way, what a waste of 24 hours it is.
>>45486730>Collect blotters When cardboard addiction has gone too far
>>45486730Get psa to grade them
>>45486751only collect with hindu gods...
so do any of you just collect the cards and don't play the actual game?
>>45486806most of my collection are played, i bought them to play when i was a kid, now i want to kill myself because i have a lot of veryyyyy rare with scratches etc...
>>45486769psa isnt the best to use u can probably get doxxed if people from here work for them u can never know
Do you think the abundance of fake cards is due to malice or people being too stupid to realise? Considering there have been 6 bids for this obvious fake I'd be inclined to say the former.
>>454868311. I was making a joke2. The odds of some autist here working at a job like psa is slim to none. And doxxing someone for internet points isn’t worth getting fired and possibly facing lawsuits
JPN shiny star V prices (roughly)shiny zard - $100shiny zard vmax - $250marnie - $200every other trainer fullart - $10most of the shinies - $10-15
>>45483860I also have a Houndoom.My favourites are dragon holos though, so shiny.
>>45486718This is bait, or you're literally retarded.
>>45486886Easy profits from uninformed buyers. I can't imagine anyone making fake children's card game cards out of malice.
>>45486899i like the electric charizard
>>45486886Probably malice as you believe as they can distinguish that it is the secret rare from evolutions and not the wotc promo
>>45486806I collect Pokemon, but I play Yu-Gi-Oh. My friend who I play Yu-Gi-Oh with and I tried to play Pokemon but we found it a bit too slow. Still love collecting the cards though.
>>45486917yugioh is aids 1 turn game
>>45486923We normally play pet decks, don't bother with expensive meta shit. Like I normally play Skull Servants.
>>45486806Used to play during the BW Era, moved onto the VGC for the XY Era, been collecting since the ex Era, favourites for the English TCG are definitely Late WOTC (LC, E series, BoG), HGSS, and BW. Favourites for the Japanese TCG were definitely the original Gen 3 ex and the XY eras.
>>45486912It's fake though. You can tell from the font.
>>45486944Looking at it my point is kinda shitty but I mean that he isn’t some dumb nostalgiaboomer who bought a fake evolutions pikachu thinking it vintage or the other way around
supposedly the guy who had a hold of the english charizard VMAX from shiny star V also posted a picture of the pack
>>45486960Yeah malice wasn't the right word. It was more do you think people know that they have fake cards or are just uninformed?
>>45486967Such an ugly fucking Pokemon
>>45486911Thanks anon, dual electric/metal is a rad typing for a dragon.I'm also partial to those cards that have 3D artwork, or anything else unique and detailed for the portrait. I don't ever intend to sell these if I can help it, I mostly just appreciate the design.
>>45486969I think he knows it’s fake>>45486967That looks fake in my opinion. I don’t think they’d essentially reuse the hidden fates logo and the toxtricity looks like the regular v
Alright bois, Big in Japan got my Shiny Star V boxes. Just paid for shipping, can't wait to see my pulls.
>>45486990i think it looks fake too but to be fair the guy had 3-4 legit cards from the set so who knows
>>45486886Evolutions was such a cool set. Wish they'd do throwback sets more often.
>>45486967Fake as fuck.
Am I reading this right? Did PSA really raise their price to $50 per card?I read that it was $20 which seemed pretty steep, but that's fucking absurd.
>>45487114yep. that'll be 50$ and 6 months minimum of the card being out of your possession
>>45487137Is that 50 per card at economy or preferred, no way it's THAT fucking high, glad shit like CGC are popping up.
>>45486886I've seen a bunch of obvious fakes while looking at sold listings, I'm trying to collect tag team gx cards and it's an absolute fucking nightmare sifting through all the fakes/proxy cards of those to find the real ones since they're especially abundant for some reason
>>45484752HNNNG SHOULD I
>>45487318BUT ANON WHAT IF SOMEONE FIND WHERE I LIFE AND COME 2 KRILL MEEe?????
>>45487371Don’t worry anon, just hide the bottom left corner and there’ll be nothing to be worried about
>>45487371DEN YOU GET KRILLED ANON SANBUT CARD POST FOR POSTERITY UWU UWU YEAHHHHH
>buy 5 vivid voltage booster packs>all green code cards
>>45487435>>45487399okay but it's super underwhelming it's just two small orange circles on a green unlimited
>>45487501okay here it is please don't come to my house and grill me
>>45487710Dude i simply cannot tell you how fascinating that is. Think about it, you are the only person in existence that owns that cardI’m jelly
>>45487465VV broke my heart and my wallet
>>45488027it's a gay card :(
>Pokémon Center STILL hasn't shipped my ETB
>>45488034No my friend, you are mistaken. It’s beautiful. You are looking at one of the most unique cards ever printed!
>>45488175:( anon im broke and all my cards are scuffed because i didn't treat them right
>>45488204Anon the vast majority of people didn't treat their cards right back then. Just be happy you still have them at all. That's a lot more than a lot of us can say.
>>45486706Of all the drugs you could be taking these days Acid is extremely harmless. Anyways what’s with all the Schizos in this thread?
>>45486749>24 hoursJesus how much are you taking anon
>>45484810I think he means this Gengar
>>45488327I knew a girl who tripped with her boyfriend once and he shot her in the face. I know he's just an outlier with underlying issues but it made me swear off any psychedelics, don't fuck around unless you're 100% confident in your mental health.
>>45488327I dunno Anon, acid is a poison type move that lowers defense in pokemon gamesI couldn't find a card with that attack, so have this damaged Grimer instead
>>45488414Christ, I understand your position. I agree that sound mental health, and moderation are key.
>>45487465So hard getting lucky with vivid
I have the Southern Island set in what I imagine is pretty reasonable condition. Is that of any value? Also I have a holographic Eevee promo that I got as a gift as a kid. Where did that promo come from? It's got 30HP and is looking up at a birds-eye-view 'camera' with red, yellow, and blue quadrants (triarants?) in the background.
>>45488543>>45487465>>45488033Are you guys new? Stop buying packs, sets are bloated to fuck these days at 200+cards and like 20 secret rares per set, your chances of pulling anything are stupid low.
>>45488578I like the thrill of opening packs. I’ll just buy the cards I really want if I don’t get them
>>45488599This. Opening packs is addicting. Literally gambling addiction.
>>45488599>>45488688I’ve been there guys, you seriously should try to kick it, it’s not good for you and it’s just gonna end in disappointment. I was really broke for a while but I would still buy the dollar store 3 card packs, now I haven’t bought a pack since a single booster cosmic eclipse and I feel great, I spend enough on pot and WotC, I don’t need that, neither do you.
>>45488570The English printing of Southern Islands? Yeah, it was fairly limited in release, so the holos go for like 20 bucks each. The Japanese set is so damn common that you can still buy sealed ones for like 5 bucks.
>>45488570That eevee was a pretty common promo at the time but it’s still worth like $5, at the moment a English southern islands set in good condition is a bit over $200 now
>>45488570I sold a set after 2 months of listing for 175, unsealed.
If you don’t have a connection to get packs for free or under retail it’s mostly a waste of money. Unless you’re cracking JP packs
>>45489097Lol okeh bud
>>45489143Go ahead and keep buying $4 packs with a <10% chance to make your money back
I want to try restoring this guy. Everything is in great condition except for a little superficial grime in a few spots that lightly scraping with my fingernail didn't completely clear up. Obviously water/chemicals are out of the question, what else can I try?>>45488750Love that Beedrill art.
>>45489182I got a yellow fabric cloth and used a small amount of water [really lightly damp] and ran over it a bunch in a similar scenario
Has the current market turned anyone else off from collecting? I just want to buy Vivid Voltage in peace, but scalpers and investmentfags have raided the stores near me.
>>45488750Oh, trust me, I know. Addictions of all kinds run in my family, so I've learned to take steps to limit myself. I usually drop some money on packs maybe once a year - this year it's two boxes of Shiny Star V and that Marnie signature promo from Japan and a little bit of Yugioh stuff in the immediate future (but that's because I always splurge a bit on nostalgia when I meet up with my old friend from school the one time of year we get to meet when he's visiting his parents for the holidays, and we were both fans of old Yugioh).
>>45489246I feel like you just did an immense amount of explaining for why you are not an addict, while at the same time listing every thing about you that makes you an addict
>>45489097>Spend nearly $50 on a Polteageist and Meowth V collections>Open the boosters with a bro>Get absolute jack shit except an Intelleon V>Tell my friend that it's a good pull since it's an ultra rare that sees some play>Check the price>$2 at mostAt least the Meowth Vmax promo is dope.>>45489232Get yourself some Japanese boxes while the madness and production issues calm down.
>>45489290Believe me, I feel the same way. But I'm just an official diagnosis short of ADHD so once I get my fix and move on I'll be set until like next year.
>>45489134Yeah, as you can see from the link, the binder usually goes for around 150 while the individual holos hover around 20 (with Mew being slightly more in-demand). You can get way more if you're laundering money, though.
>>45489182It’s one of my favorites, real shame WotC didn’t print it in foil in English.
>>45486575App is mercari
Hi.I'm looking to get into Pokemon card flipping and whatnot. I even recently joined a cook group to flip these cards as well as other things.Which are the best packs/boxes to buy right now? Money isn't too much of an issue and I'm considering doing something like buying two boxes, storing one and opening the other to see if I win the lottery per se.Are booster packs worth getting?
>>45490023buy steam siege
>>45489306>>Open the boosters with a brooooh i had the same story but the opposite happened. My friend and I were suppose to buy vv booster boxes but he had backed out last minute and I ended up pulling a rainbow pikachu
>>45490023>buying two boxes, storing one and opening the other to see if I win the lottery per se.oh thats smart i bought 1 booster box >>45490069 thats me
>>45490023Crimson invasion, cosmic eclipse, sun and moon base packs.Usually they're instantly gone so good luck getting them but if you see them at your store...
>>45488750>it’s not good for you and it’s just gonna end in disappointmentnot unless you get the fat pulls
>>45490178The house always wins, anon.
>>45489232I've got back into MTG, way more comfy
>>45488777>>45488869>>45488942Nifty thanks. It is an English printing of Southern Islands. I was a kid who loved Pokemon (ie: a kid in the late 90s) so I mostly just got anything that wasn't available from boosters as a gift. I still love the panorama art on the SI collection.
This isn't a new observation or anything, but why are FA supporters the only good FAs? The ones for Pokemon (and even their non-FA) are just shitty posed 3D models, while the supporters get actual art.I'm at the point where I literally don't care about nu-Pokemon ultras.
>>45490898It's because they're mostly 5banA lot of the og illustrators do the trainers
>>45488327Where is this steelix from?
>>45491514It's a promo from the trainer magazine. Probably the cheapest least known vintage Japanese promo though it's not hard to find
>>45490898>>45491345>5bani like their FA
>>45486286>>45486294>>45486306>>45486308>>45486336>>45486360HOLY FUCKING SHIT, he finally posts his floor and I missed it? Anybody got the image save? Im a professional carpet eater so I have connections in the carpet industry and can easily find out exactly what part of the east coast he lives based on what shade and texture the carpet is.
>>45491894Dude you missed it I’m so sorryMaybe it’s on an archive or something
>>45490898some of the tag team era full art aren't like that
This is a pretty common rare but I still think it’s very pretty
Getting some dragon sheild perfect fit sleevables for my Legendary Collection set, reckin it's about time I upgraded from my mismatched random mix of KMC perfect fits and Ultra Pro perfect fits, gonna keep the clear Ultr Pro deck sleeves over the top though.
>>45493110*sealablesHead a stroke for a sec while writing.
>me patiently waiting in vain for 25 years to go by so my modern cards will hopefully have so much value that I can sell some and retire
>>45493545if you're buying to just invest, better buy sealed boxes than singles
>Get an Ad on Normiebook about a closing TCG shop>Click on it>This is all they're selling>Facebook page was created 7 days agoPeople will fall for this
>>45494365>dragon majesty booster box>hidden fates booster boxThey aren’t even trying
>>45494365I've witnessed a store close down a short while after Crimson invasion released. They had already done a deal with a larger shop to liquidate the vast majority of their inventory, what was left was either undesirable or too niche.I only got two half priced Crimson Invasion ETBs out of it.
Anybody else have orders from the pokemon center that are stuck processing? I placed an order on 10/23 and another on 11/13 and both are stuck in processing limbo. Is it because I ordered champion's path stuff?
my post of Schizos carpet was deletedThanks obama
>>45494089this is an excellent point and I will take such advice to heart
>>45495533too lazsy to click a single button and open that linkwhat is it- tell me every single detail cause i will never have the willpower to open the link you just thought i would have the emotional capacity to open
Are these LED lights going to damage my cards? How do you guys display your cards?
>>45495664the cards are going to get led light cancer in 50 years
>>45494365>card shop closing when card shops are all booming
>>45495309just remember, every time someone crack a sealed product, the single market receives more supply while the sealed market lose supply

>>45495664Wow, it's almost like that's why PSA graded cards come in protective plastic cases to prevent such damage
How can I tell if a seller is legitimate?? Almost all the sellers of the card I want don’t have much feedback. I posted a few days ago and was told to just trust the sellers but then I see shit like this. Both of these are currently active auctions. 1/2
>>45495664Some people just don't deserve to have money in this world if they can spend it on shit like this and then ask retarded questionsThere should be adult day care centers for people like you
>>45495748Just trust the seller? 95.8% positive rating is not scammer range
>>454957482/2. I’d like to bid on this one, but does it seem sketch as well?https://www.ebay.com/itm/1999-Pokemon-1st-Edition-Shadowless-Holo-Ninetales-12-102-Near-Mint-/114519425748?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292
>>45495748Nobody is forcing you to go in on blatantly scammy auctions. Just wait for a good listing to pop up, or check some other places besides ebay.
>>45495767>/vp/ buy high sell low
>>45495765Right but obviously both of those sellers don’t have the same card with the exact same damage patterns on the same background
>>45495770>>45495776 This is for my personal collection. I’m not worried about resale. Is there somewhere besides eBay you could suggest?
>>45495783Mercari and Yahoo auctions usually have niche items at competitive prices. I don't know anything about shadowless collecting, but is $100-300 a good price for a heavily played holo Ninetales?
>>45495664Fuck man. I knew a reliable Japanese seller that had these cards for great prices two years ago but I kept thinking "I'll get them cheaper when I go to Japan directly". Now they're hard to find and over triple the price.As for your question it depends on your lights but even if they're theatrically safe I wouldn't take the risk. PSA cases don't protect against that.
>>45495836Unfortunately I got a fake off Mercari a couple years ago so I’m iffy on them now. I think I just have bad luck.Ungraded, played 1st edition base set (which I’m looking for) usually go 300-600. So yeah those are suspiciously cheap. I’m willing to outright buy one for 5-600 but even those listings look iffy.
>>45495746as far as I know, I dont think PSA cases protects UV.>>45495758I spent maybe $100 total on these, between 15 and 10 years ago.>>45495941As I said to guy above, I have been out of the collecting game for almost 7 years, but I am glad I kept my collection safe and protected, my collection has more than tenfolded over the years
>>45496033Sorry to hear about that, man. GL finding a legit listing
Got this for 5 bucks, backs a 8/10
>>45495748>>45495767>2 sellers using the exact same photoOne could be legit, but don't risk it. Also, I wouldn't pay $100 for anything with scratched up holo foil like that even if it was legit.
>>45495836Why would you pay any amount of cash for a heavily played holo...
The blue mark on Kingdra’s belly is a printing error. It makes this card unique but I kind of wish it wasn’t there.
And another Kingdra, the holofoil print from Neo Revelation never got released in English, it’s one of four holos in the set exclusive to Japan.
As a primarily English language collector It’s ridiculous how much better the Japanese print looks, we were truly robbed.
Latest buy, $9 for those four on top
>>45496787I wouldn't. That's why I had to ask.
>guy says he'll buy my pokemon cards>5 seconds later>lol no they are all fake bro soz
>>45497309Every fucking time lmao, meanwhile the only times I've ever pulled that "they're fake G" shit on someone is if they're actually selling fake cards (like those retards on ebay who sell those shitty undersized stickers that look like gen 1 cards with the foil on them, oh and easy to spot fake shit like gen 3 stuff where the EXs have yellow borders or cards that aren't ex's just have the symbol there, or the reverse is too matte to be the actual reverse for that era (atleast for the cards that used the "normal" reverse layout in that era.)
>>45497468Time to get these verified at a local trading card store; fucking 1 hour drive lmao
>>45497500If you know they're legit it's on the retard who made the offer to either go ahead with it and buy them or back out leave them lmao.
new here, how would you price a sealed black star meowth promo that included a french translation insert? I've only seen one guy mention its existence before do collectors like curio/freak items like that?
>>45497609You got pics? Is it the GB one? I don't know honestly but I'm curious.
I don't have an account so I can't grab pics, but I mean this thing
>>45497695yes it should be the GB one, if you have an account on pokecommunity could you post the guy's pics here? >>45497696
nvm, I took pics of my own
>>45496322I have that same card but mine is a little different
>>45497950Looks like they go for around $20 in mint condition, if you're selling on ebay I'd start bidding at 25 and/or a buy option at 50.
>>45497950I think I had this as a kid but threw out the translation. Still have the card but it's curved to shit>Decided to check out my TCG GBC game because of the nostalgia>Only option is New Game>Battery died
My favorite evolution line
>Got basically all the singles and boosters I've been waiting on>Binders and sleeves I've ordered still aren't hereAlso Champions Path sleeves were like half the price of normal ones because of retards cracking so many open for Zards lmao.
>>45498385>but it's curved to shitleave it inside a toploader for a few days/weeks
>>45481961I own afrika
>>45498947>all those plastic baggiesWouldn't be surprised if you had a dead body in one of those
Sort of new to the modern card part of Pokemon, had a binder of cards from when I was a kid but they were all worthless. If I wanted to start collecting what boxes should I go for?
I count cards in kg'z
>>45499016>crimson invasionlurk more faggot
>>45499026I don't know what the fuck you mean by crimson invasion I just want to collect Pokemon cards again and get dopamine from opening packs. Which boxes should I get?
>>45499016This is a loaded question you need to be more specific on. Are you collecting for nostalgia? Profit? What's your budget like? By modern do you mean Expanded (Last 10 or so years of Pokemon sets) or Standard (Last 3-4 years)?
>>45499049Nostalgia, I'd only say profit if I found a super rare card or something, which isn't likely. My budget is pretty open but I couldn't say how much it is until I know how much the boxes are that I should buy. Lets say the last 10 years or so of cards so that I have a wider selection.
>>45499026You might as well tell him to shove his money up his ass if you actually recommend to collect crimson invasion
>>45499036>get dopamine from opening packsbuy tins and pin collections for thatbest pulls or booster boxes
>>45499067you didnt get the joke
I also should have mentioned that I don't know of any legitimate, low likelihood of scams places to shop for boxes online.I wish my parents had loved me enough to buy me 1st edition booster boxes goddamn it.
>>45499066Well if it's nostalgia moreso than profit you should just stick to the SwSh sets (Sword and Shield, Rebel Clash, Darkness Ablaze, Champion's Path, Vivid Voltage) those are recent so they're more available and therefore cheaper to collect barring Champion's Path since it's a premium setIf for some reason you're not a fan of Gen 8 though you can invest in Sun and Moon series, Ultra Prism is still a very hot set even after it rotated into Expanded and still has quite a few $20+ cards, Hidden Fates of course is loaded with money cards since it's another premium set, Team Up and Cosmic Eclipse are also good sets to invest in if you can get cases onlineXY series isn't that great except Evolutions (temporary hype), Roaring Skies (couple decent cards), and Flashfire (basically Charizard or bust)BW era is basically the Plasma series of packs plus Dark Explorers, every other set is underwhelming >>45499111Well usually you go to LGSes or Amazon/Ebay for boxes, but I also reccommend Gamenerdz (oftentimes lowest prices around) or Derium's (Derium's lets you trade in bulk for new boxes)Hope that helps
>>45494365I’m a noob at this stuff. How is it fake?
>>45499155How do I tell if a box has been tampered with on Amazon/ebay? I don't want to get scammed by someone who already rifled through all the packs and just resealed them.
>>45496227>>45495746PSA cases don't offer UV protection. The best on the market are ultra pro one touches (but those aren't graded)
>>45499155Wait, I'm looking at a Vivid Voltage box and it has only 8 packs in it. That seems pretty low for $55 bucks. 8 booster packs?
Never mind, too many ways I can get shipped a faulty box and they're all out of stock anyways, couldn't have picked a worse time to get into it. Sorry to waste everyone's time, especially you anon >>45499155Sorry.
>>45499440>PSA cases don't offer UV protectionbut it offers more moneya balance
>>45499445That's an Elite Trainer Box (ETB)That's basically a fat pack if you know what those are (taste of a set with some packs plus energies/lands to build a draft deck with)
>>45499555Which boxes have the most packs in them?
>>45499597Booster boxes (36 packs)Should usually be around $100-120 for Standard sets, 150+ for older or more valuable sets
How do I go about collecting JUST gen 1 Pokemon cards? I don't want to waste money on new shit, not a fan of new designs.
>>45499699Buy Base set? Lmao you have the internet in front of you yet you can't figure it out?
>>45499749Those cost upwards of 20k idiot
>>45499790Then how am I supposed to help you if you don't have the budget for it?
>>45499862Those are my two options then? Buy shit that I don't want that is out of stock anyway or have thousands of dollars to buy old cards?
>>45499881Welcome to the life of a collector! :D
>>45499881You can thank Logan Paul.
>>45499790You could easily get raw nm base -> fossil for 5k$
>>45499982What's the point of hating on Logan Paul. Anons had two fucking decades to get cheap vintage. Why do they suddenly want it now?
>>45500128Corona checks giving them extra income
>>45497061where, on ebay?
>>45499278first of all dragon majesty and hidden fates dont come in booster boxes lol
>sold a bunch of energy and common's for $200 because they were absolutely mintez
>>45500612How many? I'm in the same boat and wondering how to price them.Also assuming you mean vintage sets.
>>45500654They were unlimited.Absolutely mint condition. Over 40 energy cards + like 20 commons.
>>45500678Most of my energies are from Gym Challenge, and a few dozen Expeditions. They're in better condition than most of my commons but nothing was ever really played.How's this for mint?
>>45500796Absolute mint unlimited went for $1 each. So I sold like 40 for $1 each and a bunch of commons + uncommons [forgot to mention]
>>45499699go to pkmncards, search every pokemon you like, pick the best art that doesn't cost too much, buy them all
Target has 10 dollar tins on their website right now. 4 packs for 10 bucks
>>45499061I'm going for Generations right now and it's a pain in the arse. I'm less that 15 away from the master set (disregarding the Toys R Us promos which is a problem in itself) but finding people who sell those last reverses is a nightmare to begin with.
>>45501183search Pokemon Fall TinAccoriding to reddit, based on some tins from this run found in stores, the Necrozma/Marshadow/Ho-Oh tins' packs SHOULD be Crimson Invasion, Sun and Moon, Steam Siege, Breakpointand the Glaceon/Leafeon/Sylveon tins' packs SHOULD be Crimson Invasion, Burning Shadows, Sun and Moon, Evolutions
