>wanted to get that new Rosa Full Art card because she's my favorite protag>it's 150 fucking dollars on averageShe was released in fucking 2019, how the fuck is she so valuable?
>>48811087A 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.
>>48812137Buy her a few real packs and closely watch how she opens them, then use your glue method on the appropriate location.
Some of the Celebrations mini tins are up on pokemoncenter again if anyone is still looking for them
New character rares for Vmax Climax
>>48812955AlsoI wonder how this set will compare to Cosmic Eclipse? So far it's shaping up pretty well. I think the octillery character rare is probably my favorite they've shown so far
>>48812955>>48812972>>48812996First, the japanese cards use english numbers instead of their own for damage/hp, but they also have english letters for the names of the drawer of the cards? Why aren't those in japanese too? wtf.
everyday i pray for an economic depression so pokemon cards get cheaper
>>48811269I still have holes in my Kanako Eo collection because she illustrated so many full-art trainers. Also Pokepark exclusive folio...
>>48813029...but. but we're in a huge recession at the moment. How could you not have noticed?
Does anyone know how much 1st edition base set cards were before 2020? I just looked at prices and was stunned to find even the commons are $50+ now what the fuck?
Who pays $48 for a Growlithe????????????
>>48813286Some dumb person seeing the first result on ebay and not consulting with anything, most likely.
today; got the last card I needed for celebrations, and a cozy snek
>>48813103psh if there is a recession its weak shiti want the stock market to fall 50%, forcing people to liquidate their pokemon collection for cheap!i want many lcs to fold due to reprints not selling well enough, forcing them to liquidate too!i want people to not have money for pokemon, reducing demand!
>>48813490That Snek is a steal for how much it goes for. Definitely gonna grab one for myself.
>>48813579That literally just happened last year. How often do you want it to happen?
>kept a Marnie Box sealed >open it because I don't care about sealed collection>pull this
>>48813094I love the older waifu cards.
>>48811087That's the waifu tax we all have to pay, especially for Rosa, Lillie and Marnie cards.
bought this lot for $170if this was a scam i deserve it since it was just too good to be true
Alright boys, how many you want? All prices are in CAD.
>>48814595>Evolutions Charizard0, keep your trash.
My best card. Came from a free pack from either a Scrye, or Duelist, or Wizard, or InQuest magazine back in the end of 98 or 99 to promote the upcoming game.
>>48814918Very nice, anon. Curious, what do you mean by "best" card? Worth the most; favourite; strongest; coolest?
>>48814958Worth 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. Everyone else could afford pack after pack after pack but I had this bad boy.
>>48814536i'd just assume all of those mega-EX cards are fake. still probably worth it though as long as the charizard is one piece lol>>48814918really nice card anon, and a great story
>>48812616Pokemon center Europe when?
>>48813094>tfw when I have a hole in my Zorua collection>managed to snag 4/7 illustration's zorua just before they explodedNever gonna finish it now unless I'm extremely lucky. Definitely not paying $3,000 per card.
>>48815061Post em mang, those cards are really cool.
>>48814918>1st edition and good conditioncongrats, you can buy a car whenever you want by selling it
>>48814918I cant trust any of those raw copies left in that condition, you should get it authenticated by psa
>>48815665That would be one hell of a car.
>>48815823I mean, I literally pulled it out of a booster pack myself. I’m never selling it. I will consider getting it graded if I ever decide to though.
>>48815665A house you mean
>>48816084Beautiful, beautiful, BEAUTIFUL collection!Did you collect all of yourself back in the 90s?I loved playing haymaker like a little bastard until I became even more of a bastard when Jungle came out and started playing a Lickitung stall deck. :P
>>48815097Sure, I can post them when I get off work.
>>48812955>>48812972>>48812996>OMG ARE THOSE MY FAVORITE ANIME CHARACTERS ON POKEMON CARDS???
>>48813286>>48813296>he thinks that a 22 year old, extremely rare card in mint condition should sell for around $3I wish poor people would just fucking leave the hobby, you're ruining it for everyone.
>>48814918Cards fake but nice bait. You can literally buy those on etsy.
>>48816152>I loved playing haymaker like a little bastard until I became even more of a bastard when Jungle came out and started playing a Lickitung stall deck. :PI wish I had understood English better when I was a child. The only way we "played" was by throwing our cards, and the one that got the farthest won the other's cards. Even if I hadn't lost my collection growing up, they'd be in terrible condition now.
>>48817020Do you reckon these are going to be printed with the texturing like alternate-art's? Are they classified as alternate-arts or the earlier ones without any of that stuff?
>>48817051They are CHR, so I expect them to be printed like the previous CHR.
>>48817064Sorry, I don't understand what you mean by 'CHR' but I assume they are going to be like the cosmic eclipse secret art cards that weren't textured, like this one pictured.
>>48816714If it was extremely rare, it wouldn't be selling for around $3. Especially not in the current climate, where some semi-rare cards from two years ago go for hundreds of dollars.
>>48817020As a Kingdra collector this makes me very happy.I'd love if we got an Umbreon Vmax with Blue tp go with Red and Pikachu Vmax.
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 eachIs this a common thing now how bad or good are they quality wise? I'm just curious because I refuse to believe all the buyers didnt read 'not official' in the listing or were that stupid to even click on it
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.
>>48817683The 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.
>>48817739Do 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?
>>48817806Of course people buy them. They are literal idiots.
>>48817435>we'll never get ibglybuff's (plural) character rare card.Fuck this gay earth.
>>48817020>Kingdra is 5'10How much of a womanlet is Claire?
>>48818231It's been long established that size variance exists in the Pokemon world.
>>48818231more like her Kingdra is large and badass
>>48814595I'll buy a loose one on eBay for $35, thanks!
>>48814230since I collect by artist, there are some artists that would bankrupt me. OP's card, Miki Tanaka, has been illustrating since WotC days. Here's her earliest EN card
>>48819281I have a pretty decent Kagemaru Himeno collection, maybe later I'll post some pictures.This and Dragonite Fossil my favorites.
Will this card appreciate in price because of "reasons"?It looks like a pretty card for a cheap price right now.
>>48819365Nice. Didn't know other collectors collected by artist. Most that I know go for full sets.It's not even waifu cards that can be expensive, full arts can get pricey quick.
>>48819411Full-art Lana, I bought for $8.00. Don't know what it's worth now, but other full arts from the same set were $80.00+ So, I don't think so?
>>48819411It's a cute card but not named or anything, so don't hope for an extreme increase like Skyla or Lillie
Very happy with todays mail. A card I've been wanting since I first saw it and finally feel like I got a good deal on it.also my local Target put some Steam Siege blisters out so I picked one up for the hell of it. Dunno if I'll open it or not.
>>48819433Kanako Eo hasn't released a card since Hidden Fates Full Art Lady. I, uh, don't think she's illustrating cards anymore, bros... Moving on to HYGONOSUKE. And Miki Kudo. And I still have JP exclusive holes in my Tomoaki Imakuni set. His EX Power Keepers Medicham is my favorite out of his cards.
>>48819612>>48819433Your writing is really neatOr maybe my writing is just really messy
>>48819632I have a draftsman handwriting (all caps) because of work. This is actually pretty messy for my handwriting. Oh. here's Imakuni's favorite illustration from what I was saying in >>48819612He's a talented artist who doesn't just make gag cards.
>>48819503I've always wondered how that card looks IRL. It either looks boring or like the coolest card you've ever seen in eBay listings (depending on the light and angle).
>>48819688not him, but definitely seems like a card where a gif or webm of it rotating slowly would give the best example of how it looks.
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.so i returned the binders, but i want to do better than having my cards sitting in a shoebox.
>>48819725They 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.
>>48819725Toploaders?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.
>>48819503I sold mine a couple years ago, kind of miss it. Very nice buy, anon.
>>48819773anon please noi saw the first page of a binder and told myself ill put my favorite 9 cards there, but what are my 9 favorite cards? how do i arrange the 9 cards? what if my favorites change and everything has to be rearranged?its too much>>48819801>>48819852thanks, ill look at those!
>>48819725Right 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.
>>48820368No, no, no. First page is just an opener. Your favorites go in the second page for the double spread.
today's mail was probably the highlight of the month
>>48815097>>48816444Didn't get around to posting them until now, sorry.Off to bed now though, see you in eight hours or so.
Mail time, gonna open them in a bit after I eat.In the meantime can anybody translate these runes?
>>48820794Something about feeling happy and cream filling...
>>48817020This artwork is beautiful
>>48820825Ah boring, thought it might be something more personal.>>48820871L-lewd...
I'm pissed off. Why doesn't Hilda have a card?
We are so fucked.
>>48820606I bought exactly 1 pack of Expedition ever and got the reverse of this. I'd never seen e-series before so I thought it was fake. Thankfully I still have it and it's in decent condition (aside from being pringled)
>>48816725It’s absolutely not fake. No I guess I don’t know how to prove it LOL
>>48820606the e reader border designs are so cool>>48820653im jelly
>>48820794Here we go.This Vaporeon has some of my favorite art of any card, but the holo doesn't really pop that well. Espeon on the other hand is gorgeous with that selective holo.
>>48821627Here'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.
Is this going to be the first card with Gloria, or was there another one I'm not aware of?
>>48822106I think the main concern is that some normie youtuber sees the show and gets into pokemon cards, then starts making videos and the logan paul disaster happens all over again
>>48819773Based. Vault X binders are kino
>>48823084>I think the main concern is that some normie youtuber sees the show and gets into pokemon cardsNo. 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..."
Thoughts on buying bulk/binders, taking out the cards you want and putting it back up for the same, if not more than you bought it for?
>>48823008I can already see that Full Art selling for $200 a year later.
>>48823525If she gets a full art.
>>48823584I would be very surprised if she doesn't.
>>48823414>man, I heard that pokemon cards were getting pretty up there in value, I know I had a collection somewhere...I heard this almost word for word from someone I work with because they know I play the video games. I hate it.
>>48821627It's all so fucking tiresome. Five years ago I could hardly get a game in at the FLGS and the owner restocked half as often as other games. Now plenty of people play again but scalpers sweep the shelves like damned anti-fun robots.
>>48823608>I heard this almost word for word from someone I work with because they know I play the video games. I hate it.Don't forget the:"I know I had some real good ones in there too. Holos and everything!"
>>48823620I think at this point, TPC should consider doing something. I'm willing to bet that there are more people buying these cards for collecting than actually playing.
>>48823843>TPC should consider doing somethingRolling around in their piles of money and printing more full art turborares?
>>48823872Sure, as long as they print enough for everyone.
>>48823843I 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 retardedI 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
Should I get a NM shadowless Venusaur for around $500 AUD ungraded?Sounds like it's priced right, only got regular base set Blastoise and base set 2 Charizard at the moment so it's a little triggering to lack the best starter
>>48824070The 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.
is deriums legit im new fag
>>48819281I collect Asoka Ito's Yarn Pokemon. Still trying to get Rev Holos of the couple new ones in Fusion Strike.
The card shop cleared me out today
>>48819433I'm not really collecting artist, but at some point I realized that some cards that I liked were from the same artist. Here some Kagemaru Himeno, including a rare Birthday Pikachu in Italian with the starlight holo and the perv banned Grimer JAP.Too much work find the others in Rocket (I have a 1st edition Charmander and Dark Charmeleon) and the Dragonite Fossil holo aswell.
Btw speaking of waifu cards, wondering how many of you have a JAP Misty's Tears.Love this card, bought a NM directly from Japan.
>>48824465Nice, anon! I love POP series cards. How much was all that in your local currency?
>>48824625All the cards pictured were 115 USD
>>48824214I didn't even know that sleeves or toploaders for jumbo cards exist.My only jumbo cards are the 25th Promo starter trio from Kanto, I should sleeve them sooner or later.
>>48823487Fun in theory, but good luck finding anything worth the money.
>>48824465>tfw no game store in the whole country sells vintage singlesYou don't know how lucky you are. The best we have over here are MtG singles.
>>48823487I 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.
>>48825495http://www.westcoastsportscards.org/Read some of the things on this page
>>48825664Glanced over it quickly, were you referring to something in particular. They really need to up their mobile experience.
>>48825722I should have been more specificThey just happen to have a long history of huge transactions which is to say that Im very lucky to live anywhere near there. Once I move its back to online for myself. -end blog post
bought that golden charizard + reshiram box, and got this out of the second booster I opened from it
>>48825843Oh, neat. Enjoy it while you still live there!
>>48825843If I ever left Appalachia I'd move to the PNW, we're both moldy ass mountains but top tier geography.That said I don't have a decent LGS within 100 miles over here.Here's a cute card.
>>48826058Gratz! Were you hoping for that one?
>>48826373I honestly had no idea what was in that set, but im not disappointed. I bought it as more of an in the moment thing
>>48826369Its expensive as fuck to live here if you don't have a good job but damn its beautiful out here. Lot of druggies though.
>>48823843>I'm willing to bet that there are more people buying these cards for collecting than actually playing.This has never not been the case. Pokemon TCG has been a collector driven hobby since it started. Actual gameplay is secondary.
>>48826751>actual gameplay is secondaryactual gameplay kinda stinky
>>48826751Yeah, 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.

>>48827533Isn't she just the female version of Andrew Mahone?

>>48828521they may be japanese cards, but still an awesome deal!
>>48829250>>48829263I really hope these are as common as the Cosmic Eclipse ones.
>>48810965Based and Dimitripilled
i think these character rares are the only time i actually prefer the grey border on the japanese cards
>>48829363What 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.
>>48831015in 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
>>48831015If 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.
>>48831882Also got a full Japanese 25th reverse holo set
>>48831525Oh damn. That's not bad. I like that since now even green/black code cards still have the chance to pull a special rare. And white code cards have the chance to be loaded.
>>48816076psa 8 zard is only 12.5k last pwcc auction and already from the front you can tell it's not a 9/10
>>48832077>Centering is well within tolerance needed to be graded a PSA10>No visible edge wear and well rounded corners>No holo scratches, maybe some scuffs -- lines on the holo aren't "scratches" What are you seeing that prevents this from being an almost guaranteed 9? PSA8 cards have very obvious flaws to the eye like edge whitening.

>all this talk of grading *shits down your Reddit fucking throats*Grade that, faggots.
mailmy first and only japanese card
>>48824610I have one.
>>48834332Based Hanada City Gym deck with no rarity symbol.But is that thing on the card, they really gave it a 10?
>>48834376It’s internal in the plastic holder, not the card.
>>48834376I also have an ungraded one that actually in my opinion looks better than the graded one.Anything you see on there is just dust on the case.
>>48834594how much should i pay for a lp/nm copy?
>>48833548reddit actually hates grading and sealed collecting more than this place
>>48834737Ungraded but in great shape?$40-$60
>>48834830damn that seems pricey. is there no cheaper version of the card?i imagine it must be infinitely cheaper in japan
>>48834888The 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.
>>48834897yeah im just looking for the cheapest version of it that's still lp-nmreally wish it was holo thoughis this >>48833775also from a deck?
>>48829250This one is sick. They both look so warm and comfy. Will definitely go for this one.
Been a min since I came to these threads, they seem a bit more civil than i remember. That's nice
>>48835343nice collection, but damn I wish I had an intact fossil box too
>>48833775that art is so good
>>48835529agreed man, i miss Sabrina's old design so much
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 90Did I fuck up? Also, I will post results by next week cause the ETB doesn't come till the 30th
>>48835658Where'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.
>>48835658>i bought packs to open, did i fuck upShort answer, yes.Long answer, still yes.
>>48835658>Evolving Skies booster box for 99Bruh. The cheapest store in Sweden sold them for roughly $197. Of course, they're not available that cheap anywhere anymore, hell they're not even available at all anywhere.You guys doing know how lucky you are over there.
>>48835511They aren't hard to find just need to wade through the bullshit on eBayI want to get some kind of jungle display piece, not sure what my options are though
Glad to see my Target restocked on packs. I haven't seen Walmart restock at all or put those Black Friday sets out again, I guess they sold out immediately. Maybe they weren't supposed to release them yet?
>packed all my cards away for the my move>forgot to snap pics of them before>won't be able to see them again for a year+Idk what I was thinking I miss them already bros. This is the only picture I still have
>>48836004>Black Friday setsWhich ones are those?>Google Pokemon Cards Black Friday Walmart>See Evolutions box for 60 bucks>Sold and shipped by xinxinniu | Chengdu xinxinniu zhilengshebei youxianzerengongsiheh
>>48836046They 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.
>>48836056Ah, 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.
>>48836074I 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.
>>48836487Duraladon is looking pretty cool. Charizard looks legit retarded.
>>48810887https://pkmncards.com/This site is really useful. Maybe it could be added to future OPs.
>>48836959I wish they didn't change their "image only" mode when browsing cards. It used to be that they showed the cards wide enough to fit the entire page on mobile, but now they fit two cards instead which makes the text too small to read.
>>48836487Can't wait for that Charizard to be worth $200+ just because
Bought some modern cards for the first time since Vivid Voltage. Gonna save four of the Fusion Strike for my sealed collection and open the rest. Will post pulls later.
>>48838678Also, just learned that not all jumbos are equally large. Still have a few that doesn't fit in the binder pages unfortunately.
>>48836487Duraludon looking super sick
>>48838871How much are these?
>>48838896Melony should be $15 on average.
>tfw turning Pokémon sales into crypto
>>48832979The Japanese anniversary cards are so much cooler than the English ones. They look like some kind of prize cards.
>>48839173Yeah you can get them slightly cheaper on auctions. Got one for £9 and never got sent but got a refund. Paid £13.29 for this one on ebay.
>>48836487FUCK OFFF CHARIZARDthat raihan/duraladon is hilarious and based though
>>48810887I made this when the card came out, first use of stamp tool
>>48811087>not interested in pokemon art whatsoever, just dont care for em>become an artist over the years>grow to really like the trainer full arts>Look up Erikas Hospitality full art because I used to have a gym heroes holo Erika that it would look good displayed next to>$350+FUCKKKKK
>>48839554Where did $350 come from?I see it for $60 NM
>>48839554Nevermind you're talking about the 190/173 I see
>>48839631Yeah, shame that the arts weren't switched, the Japanese one is much better imo. What a shame that it never came out in English
>>48839711It looks like you could get one off yahoo auctions japan for about 100 less but its still a hefty price tagYou are right though, the japanese version is way cooler
>>48838678>>48838700Super happy with the pulls! Had no idea what cards there even were in the Celebrations set, so both my gf and I went in blind. Mew is qt af and Tapu Lele I like because it used to be a staple in every deck a few years ago.
>>48840245Managed to pull a thiccachu too, missed it in the first pic.
Sleeves collection, small but fun to look at, some are here only due to eBay purchases 1/2
>>48840336Small as I said, one day I will invest in cute sleeves (i.e. we are goomies!). Right now I wish I had the Marnie one.
>>48840245>>48840260Nice you pulled the Mew! Saved yourself some money if you're looking to complete the set (or gained yourself a bunch if you sell). I am jealous, though I am eyeing one in the high 70s (CAD) I still can't pull the trigger.
>>48840245super cute vulpix
>>48840245I did the same with my gf. Went in completely blind regarding celebrations so each pack was a hit for us.
>>48840336>>48840347>sleeve collectionNice, I really need to find those g-max eevee ones. Btw, do you actually have 64 of each sleeve?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.
New tag team, my collection is getting more complete
>>48840546>Btw, do you actually have 64 of each sleeve?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.
>>48840561Good pick up, are you missing many?I miss tag teams they made great art for them.Some anons used to post some impressive collections of them.
>>48840336>>48840347Neat! Never thought that'd be something to collect, but it looks cool in a binder.>>48840370So that's the chase card if the set? If so, I might just buy the rest actually. Hadn't planned on completing it, but might do it anyway.>>48840410Nice! Did you pull anything cool? Not that there's anything uncool in the set lel.
Got these by opening 15 Chilling Reign boosters.How lucky am I ?
>>48840742Forgot the pic
>>48840682Yes Celebrations is a small set, therefore you'd have no problem finishing it now. However, there is also Celebrations: Classic Collection where they brought back older cards & this one has a Charizard to chase.https://shop.tcgplayer.com/price-guide/pokemon/celebrations
>>48840757Cute fake language cards and feet anon. You pulled decently, could've been worse and could've been better. I do like your pulls personally just not a fan of RaInBoW rArEs so the normal full art would've been nicer to me.
FAVORITE ART IN THE ENTIRE SERIESGOHARDMODE: NO AQUAPOLIS
>>48840682>Nice! Did you pull anything cool? Not that there's anything uncool in the set lel.Oh ya, plenty. Finished the regular set of celebrations -- pulled the Golden Mew in our UPC. Two Umbreon gold stars. No karp or Charizard, however. Also got a bunch of great cards from the other packs that come with it, like alt art Zeraora.
Wow this thread is comfy and on topic.Would be a shame if something bad happened to it...
love this.anyone know where it came from? blister packs or something? its a holo uncommon card
>>48841125forgot pic of course
>it is year 2021>there is no good squirtle art
>>48841153I can’t help but think that something is up with my one, lot more blue from what I’ve seen. Gorgeous card anon.
>>48841251could just be the lighting, my lights are very warmim really loving these holo trainers.
>>48841303>those trainersI'm thinking based
