A certain portion of the fanbase goes crazy for waifu cards, picrel is an example
>>
I'm looking to make a "fake" booster pack for my gf to open on Christmas but I'm unsure of the best way to reseal packs? I heard that a straightening iron would work to slightly melt the pack and fuse it? It doesn't need to be perfect, she's going to know the jig is up the moment she opens it and sees 11 holos, so that doesn't really matter.

I was thinking of opening the pack from the bottom and replacing the cards that way and gluing it shut. Most people open packs from the top so the glue shouldn't be a problem.
>>
>>48812137
Buy her a few real packs and closely watch how she opens them, then use your glue method on the appropriate location.

Worth the most and favorite.

I was so proud to pull that as a kid. It’s no good for play unfortunately, but it’s just the card that made me feel special as a kid.

I was buying a couple boxes on ebay at exhorbitant scalped prices for my own personal enjoyment and I noticed people are openly selling fake boxes of the new sets for like 25 euros each

is it worth it to try to sell those "50 card lot for 20 bucks, guaranteed holo" with modern commons and .25 cent reverse holos? was thinking of doing that to get rid of my celebrations dupes and make a little money back.
>>
>>48817683
The celebrations holos are going to be the "garuanteed holo" from all those repack products for decades.

go for it, morons deserve to lose their money.

I'd do something like $5 for 20 cards including 2 holos with $2 shipping. Still making well over what the cards are worth but it's so cheap people aren't going to fight back about being scammed. And probably sell super quick to get rid of it all.
>>
>>48817739
Do people ever buy those 100 card or 50 card "deals" anyway? It's not like you are gambling, you are 100% certain you buy stuff the seller does not want or can't sell. Why not just buy random weighted packs and rip them open at that point?

how should i store my collection?
i bought 2 big 360 card binders for my collection, but i realized i enjoy holding the cards in my hands. plus i get very stressed out planning which card goes where in my binder.

They sell card boxes. Rows just wide enough for sleeved cards. Penny-sleeves for commons, and top-loaders for your more valuable cards.
Certain sets have holos warp if humidity is anything above 0.05%. Sounds like what you'd like.
>>
>>48819725
Toploaders?
Arkhives are the nicest way of storing them, but they only fit about 180 so if you've got that many to store not the most economical at $40 a piece.
Empty ETBs also fit toploaders, just make sure you get the ones from SM era or earlier. I don't remember if the modern sets are too wide or too narrow but they don't fit as well.
Or you can just get one of those big folding cardboard boxes that fit a shitload. Still better than just loose in a shoebox.

>>48819725

Right now my nicest cards that are in toploaders or one-touch cases are in my UPC box. Not only does the box look quite nice but it also has a good amount of storage for your "top" cards. You can probably find an inexpensive empty UPC box. The rest you can put in any box since you won't be going to grab them as frequently as your favs. It also doesn't have to be a pokemon themed box. You could have a nice wooden box or something like that, too. Hell, cedar would even keep the moisture out.

Here's hoping the show gets canned and doesn't go beyond pre-production, or doesn't gain popularity and only has a couple episodes. Also, if it just focuses on Sports Cards mostly (which are the vast majority of cards sent to PSA), then our cards won't be affected thaaaaaat much.

No. That's not the main concern. Your "normies" that watch youtube are already aware of the pokemon hype because Logan Paul himself is a youtube/vine/tiktok/viral personality.

The main concern is that the actual normies, the ones that have 0 internet-culture presence -- the ones that only watch netflix and talk with their buds while watching the game, or talk to the gals while at brunch -- start watching the show. Because those are the ones with tons of adult disposable cash and have children. There is still a huge subset of people that do not know about the pokemon hype of the past two years but still played pokemon as a child. I know some of these people. One said to me half a year ago: "man, I heard that pokemon cards were getting pretty up there in value, I know I had a collection somewhere..."

Rolling around in their piles of money and printing more full art turborares?

>>48823872
Sure, as long as they print enough for everyone.
>>
>>48823843
I buy these cards purely for collecting, I don't even know the rules of Pokemon TCG. They just look really damn fancy, and I even have some full arts on display.
I would actually prefer if TPC printed some rares specifically for that, with game info removed, so they would be like sports cards. They do promotional jumbo cards for display purposes, but you can't really do anything with them because they're so damn big. Framing them on the wall would be retarded and they obviously won't fit any card holder, so I have no clue what you're supposed to do with them.
>>
>>48823963
>Framing them on the wall would be retarded
I dunno, seems fairly prudent.
Obviously not fancy frames, but something low key, just glass with metal trim for instance, and have it for decoration. In your game-room/mancave/haghovel/whereyoukeepyourotherchildishstuff

The problem is their size. They're big enough to instantly divert attention away from everything else, but not big enough to be considered posters. So you'll have this uncomfortably large and noisy piece of holofoil on your wall, looking about as tasteless as it gets. Small cards are cool because you can put them on the shelf with all other stuff, and they stand out nicely without being overly distracting. Maybe someone can make it work, but I sure as hell can't.

I want to find a flipper trying to offload their literal garbage but it seems like they'd all rather just throw it away than get $10 for it. That or throw it in a blind lot to dupe some retards, in which case fair enough.
Not even trying to resell, I just want to rebuild my bulk collection.

Yeah, it was literally back when the first set came out that people started collecting or hoarding what they liked but didn't really use them to play. As a kid, I remember being really envious when I saw some binders filled with Charizards and Blastoises.

i think these character rares are the only time i actually prefer the grey border on the japanese cards
>>
>>48829363

What was the pull rate on those? And were they slotted in differently? Like, were they placed where the reverse holos are? Or do they go in the "regular" rare spot?

I would love for them to have some texturing, but I doubt it.
>>
>>48831015
in dream league (jp) there were 3 chrs in addition to the regular rare slots so you got more cool cards per booster box with this set. I would assume they’ll do the same for the next one, no idea about the eng releases
>>
>>48831015
If something is a subset, like these cards were explicitly described as in Brilliant Stars' press release they go in the reverse holo slot. Cosmic Eclipse's character rares were about 1 every 10 packs or so.

What are you seeing that prevents this from being an almost guaranteed 9?

It’s internal in the plastic holder, not the card.

i imagine it must be infinitely cheaper in japan
>>
>>48834888

The thing is I don’t know how you would define the condition of the card for yourself.

When I look at something and “great condition“ I mean some thing that could get a BGS black label.

If you don’t mind a few minor chips or dings around the edges, you can literally get it for $10.

And ones that are not the deck edition, the ones with the little black dot in the bottom corner, are even cheaper.

Hi, I am new to this...well I stopped collecting in 2000 and started new. I bought Fusion Strike ETB for 40 bucks, Evolving Skies booster box for 99 and a Chilling Reign Booster box for 90

Did I fuck up? Also, I will post results by next week cause the ETB doesn't come till the 30th
>>
>>48835658
Where'd you get the booster boxes from? Assuming it's all legit that sounds like some pretty good prices and ES is a great set. I'd probably go for a booster box if I could be confident it wasn't tampered with at retail price.

They were Urshifu rapid and single strike boxes. Like 8 packs, a large card, and two holo cards up front for $20. An amazing deal.

I didn't grab them when I saw them but I did grab an Eternatus box that was similar.

>>48836056
Ah, I did see those a few weeks back. Skipped on them because I didn't care about Urshifu and then later found out the price and how many packs they came with.

I know that feel, but 8 packs for $20 is fantastic no matter how you split it. Be worth buying all of them for that and then just I don't know, giving those cards away at a local shop for status.

The most recent ones that I have obtained myself (from ETBs or Promo boxes) yes I have the 64 sleeves. I've shipped some cards in 2019-2020 using some of the Hidden Fates/Cosmic sleeves, half the rest are single sleeves obtained via eBay purchases.
>Also, the fusion strike sleeves really suck imo, you should get the Japanese ones if you can still find them, since they are a hundred times better.
Son of a bitch that's a cute sleeve. I will say the English ones are not as good but I like the psychedelic feel the colors give off, I only got the retailer ETB so my Mew sleeves are not like the ones in this pic.

There are SO many sleeves once you start looking into them oh my lord.
