I remember thinking it was worth what the one at the card store was worth when they were handing these out. I think they had Ancient Mew with the glass case for like $400 around 1998.
There was no ancient mew other than the promotional card from the movie bro
Damn then that guy was really trying to fuck someone over. I do remember it having like a stone texture so maybe it was some collectible statue thing but I can't find it
There was a misprint from the Japanese release that made it out in some pamphlets, possible it was that but don’t think it would be 400$ in like 99
I still have a full set of the Yugioh Pyramid of Light cards.
>back when things made sense
worth nothing for some reason
I haven't seen that in a long time. A looong, looong time.
I remember having one in my collection when I was in elementary school and I gave it to a friend because I just wanted a charizard card (I never got one).
Lost it that day
It's pretty funny how so many people Mandela effect'd themselves into thinking that card was given out during the first movie and not the second, when the card itself was literately part of the plot. Just goes to show how forgettable the movie was compared to the first I guess.
shit I did too. now that I'm looking up the film names it's easy to get them confused tbqh. Pokemon The First Movie and Pokemon The Moive 2000, released a year apart too.
>Just goes to show how fucking retarded the people who believe in the mandala effect are, I guess.
>my memory is infallible
I got mine from the first movie though.
I know because I have only watched the first movie.
They did come with the first movie I got mine from the Mewtwo movie which is about the time I stopped watching Pokemon
I bought one for ~$8 and Ive collected every mon from gen 1-2 in a binder
I have nobody to show my collection too and nobody would care anyway
some cards, yah. But as long as you avoid first editions or the gen 1 starters its not so bad
Pretty sure I have one of those. I should see if my parents still have my Pokemon cards somewhere.
Based, I do too, not actively though.
I just think they're neat. Nice slowking
>mfw had the set and still have the binder it came in
I have a few of the cards, but I honestly doubt I have them all anymore.
I remember how common slowking cards were in school, everybody hated him.
not if you're not autistic about it and buy LP cards
>the damage is just love
that's the spirit
fuck youtubers, fuck investors and fuck psa
I care anon, I care.
I brought my ancient Mew everywhere as a kid, the damage is just love
For me it was this gyrados and jungle set scyther
my friend got this in that costco pack for Christmas once
I remember I was jealous because I asked my parents for it for Christmas and they said maybe later and then it was fucking sold out by the time they actually went present shopping
>jungle set scyther
I loved that card so much.
Based. Sycther may have been a shit bug type but his design was 10/10
Easily one of my favorites. Scizor IS my favorite Pokemon, so...
Caught one of these babies in Fire Red and still have him lv100 in my pokebank to this day.
Based taste but for me it will always be Raichu at number 1
for me, its my OG ride or die typhlosion
Based. This guy carried me through every gym in Kanto.
Probably because he had already beaten every gym in Johto + the Elite 4.
Have you played Gold/Silver? Kanto is endgame and pretty difficult if you go there straight after beating Johto.
The first few series were the best. I remember being hooked to them like crack.
the 1st gen pokemons were so cool
shame what happened to everything after johto
>nobody would care anyway
Lots of autists would care. You could probably start a YouTube channel that does nothing but show your cards and autistic people will watch it.
you could probably sell them, I had a bunch of gen 1 cards in a binder, nothing special only a few holographs and it paid for half of my new computer. not bad, and I got to sucker some soijack out of some shekels
now I just need to find a buyer for my stacks of nintendo power magazines
I dont care about money tho
Collecting is a fine hobby. Every few weeks I like to just look at my cards. It's quite relaxing.
wait a minute, that misty card is a FAKE
Here's what you're looking for
just think about the copious amounts of nerd body fluids are on those
That's why I stopped collecting cards
Literally me. I switched to coins and records after a while.
I collect books and literally the only people I have to show are all online.
I dont know if you'd call me a collector but I definitely buy a lot of books I like
nice. howd you end up with books all the same size for each shelf? very cool
My older brother saw the Pokemon movie in theaters and we still have this hanging around somewhere. It's cool as fuck despite being probably in too shit a condition to be worth anything.
Saw home alone 2 at the cosy civic theatre in auckland new zealand and got a sweet badge, diff to this one
>IT STILL MEANS SOMETHING
>mfw own the same card hope will amount to something
as much as i dislike pokemon as an actual card game, ancient mew is probably the sickest looking playing card of any sort in existence
For a while the AMC in my city started doing that.
>deadpool desk buddy
>pokemon playing cards
>venom comic book (actually it's funny, with this one if you bothered to read this before the movie began you would get spoiled on the end of the movie)
>character cards for into the spider-verse
They can't even lose that much money doing that kind of stuff. They should do little promos like that more often, for the kids at least.
I got this sick Pacific Rim poster when I saw the movie in imax. One of my favorite movies experiences.
These were bullshit
I had a couple of those. Were those from 7/11 or Burger King?
still have my togepi thing
I had a cringe ass Poliwhirl. Who the fuck decided that should be a gold plated card
Poliwhirl was mascot tier in Japan dude to the manga.
He the creators favorite
I used to have a few of these but I have no fucking idea where they are.
>that kid who claimed he could read the text
hated that fag
I can read that text tho. Stay mad
Zoomers will literally NEVER be be able to comprehend a shared cultural phenomenon like Pokemania and ironically the closest they'll ever had lived through is PokemonGO.
I almost pity them
needs pinball and TCG tbh
>no Hey You! Pikachu!
That game was so broken and I felt like an idiot playing it
hey you pikachu was awful even back then
>20 years later
>still can't get this dumb bro to break a fucking watermelon
My mom is a bus driver and she says some of the kids are still playing with Pokemon cards. They're just those hideous new cards.
I work with an afterschool program and zoomies bring in their binders all the time. Only they dont actually care about the mons, they only care about holos, vmax's, and prices on auction sites
They are. I'm a teacher and taught in middle school last year, the grade 6 kids still collect NuPokemon cards.
I have the Johto League badges as pins on my laptop bag and one of the kids recognized them and was like, "You like POKEMON?!" and I got to tell them I was a Pokemon master literally a decade before they were born.
I didn't comprehend Pokemania while it was happening because I thought Japanese stuff was incredibly gay. Still think it's gay too.
You know what's really gay? Being a fag like this.
>tfw wanted to get into pokemon when I was a kid but my dumb reactionary parents prevented me because they thought it was evil
Good on you, shotcwas gambling for kids and a waste of money (retard me fell for it, then AGAIN with MtG)
>It's another millennials thinking they had the best childhoods because of all the products they consumed episode
Literal goycattle generation. Raising an entire generation of children with a box is a failed experiment
I remember when you could get more promos by taking your movie ticket to a WB Store. I think they did it for both the first and second movie.
I still have two in their packaging.
My family once collected about $2000 worth pokemon cards including a first edition Mewtwo. My Mom kept them safe in the closet to keep them away from us kids and are dirty hands. But when I turned 18 my Mom lost her child support and pawned all the cards, including the Mewtwo, so she could get drunk for a long weekend.
Still fucking mad.
i have 1st gen pokemon cards all sitting in a box in my closet i got from my parents home before they moved
i havent touched them since elementary school, almost 30 years now
you think i should sell them on ebay finally? i prob missed the boat during covid but i was stuck states away during lockdowns
You can never go back, these are all just pieces of a past that you've long left behind.
very first pack i opened in 7th grade had a charizard. been chasin that high ever since
I had all of those except for a Charizard that got stolen from me by the neighborhood bully. Are those worth enough for me to look for them?
base charizard still go for $100+ on ebay, not sure about jap one
theyre all still in the same binder as 7th grade
Loved decorating my binders back then
>tfw your binder had a clear cover so you could decorate it from the inside and it would look cleaner
>filling in empty space with metallic sharpie
God life was simpler then.
It was going for $100 back in the late 90s, how is it still a rare card after 20+ years?
Is Charizard meant to be good? It sounds kinda shit reading it there. No idea how the game works though
Charizard is just the most popular Pokemon and that card was pretty rare. I can't believe I got one in a booster. But it's definitely his popularity that makes it such a valuable card.
I got my Charizard at a 7-11 pulled from a box.
I had them all up to the Team Rocket series. Sold them in the early 2000s on ebay.
i kept mine in the wrapper thinking it would be worth something one day kek
Id assume they will be when we are in our 70's and 80's.
Why would you take it out of the wrapper? It's not like you can play with it
>be in 4th grade
>go see this with my friends
>convinced dad to pick us all up and take us
>they only wanted to go for the card
>they call it gay ten minutes in and leave
>sit by myself and watch it
>dad picks me up after and asks where my friends went
>uncomfortable silence the whole ride back
Sorry for being a gay, dad
Shitty experience, sorry anon. My mom was happy to take me and my brother and she even cried when ash got turned to stone.
I just got a ghost face cup with a figure on top for scream 6
My mom never threw any of my old stuff away. Turns out all my Pokémon cards, which I kept pretty good care of, were shadowless. Aka the expensive first printing.
yeah, that charizard alone is probably worth like $400-600 at least.
pretty wild when you check completed listings
That's honestly pretty retarded. Is anyone actually buying them at this price?
This one is only $13
Shouldn't you buy that?
Starting bidding probably
Nope, buy it now price is $13 do you guys not see the same listing? I have the app.
I see it up there but seems sketchy as fuck. Still probably worth it even if it is bullshit
That is a shadowed charizard. The shadowless cards are the ones worth a lot
It’s not shadowed. This is what shadowed looks like.
It's hilarious seeing these cards in the same kind of cases graded gold coins are in.
I don't think gold coins get graded unless they are historical. Gold is just based on the content of gold in the coin, not the condition, unless like I said it has historical significance.
That's dark charizard
Oh yep you’re right.
Its still fucking retarded. Black lotus at least is broken as fuck
No worries, this is all super gay distinction shit I only learned when I found my old cards and tried to see if they were worth anything
Raichu is such a bro. His card is the only one I would keep if I found my old cards.
Old fag here. When I saw Blade Runner in the 80s, they gave us a can of Sea Beans. We were really confused. Then pic related happened and we were more confused. Was this ever explained?
wtf are sea beans?
I sea beans, I eat em
Recently got my binders of pokemon cards from my parents house. I have the complete Base set with a few 1st editions and a couple shadowless cards mixed in. Charizard is a regular one though. I thought about putting them up on ebay or something but I don't really feel like giving them up.
The really cool stuff I found was my old Japanese gym leaders series cards. They're not a complete set but I have a bunch of cool ones like Blaines charizard, Misty's Gyarados, and Sabrina's Gengar. One surprise I found was that the jap printing of Misty's Tears was actually worth a good bit of money because the artwork was banned in te US for showing a naked Misty.
I had exactly 1(ONE) first edition
holy shit is that from pokemon the first movie?
I got stuff when I saw the DBZ Broly movie in Japan. I won the figurine in an arcade in Shinjuku that same night.
those nips really knew how to build the hype
>mfw I traded an original Charizard when I was a kid
This is how I know I'm retarded.
I know that feel. All the older kids in the culdesac pressured me to do it. I was like 5. I think it was for a Gengar, Chancy and Electabuzz but I still hate that memory.
Man, I wasn't ready for the nostalgia that brought me...fuck you, OP.
Reminder that pain stems from attachments in the physical world. All of life is an act of letting go. If you are too attached to things in life, the pain becomes greater. If you are still holding on to your old Pokemon cards, it's time to throw them away. It will hurt, but that pain is a lesson.
>implying it hurts
Seeing old Pokemon stuff just makes me smile a little is all. Not everything is doom and gloom and "we have to go back".
You misunderstand. It's not nostalgia or memories that hurt you, it's loss. Everything you care about, attached to, is a possible vector for pain. Ultimately, you must remove attachments from your life.
That seems like a you problem.
Reacting negatively is not surprising, but don't take my word for it. Think on it.
>goes to therapy once
>invades a Pokemon thread
Seems like garden gnome response
Just because you never had a childhood doesn't mean you can ruin others.
Whatever you say Dusty. Not signing the contract.
>asked my friend to buy me a pack while he is out shopping, I would pay for it when I see him
>he buys one pack for himself, and one for me
>the pack he gives me ends up having a Charizard
>he was clearly pissed off
Should I have felt guilty?
>give card to poor kid
>ask for it back to look at it one more time
>tear it up in front of poor kid
i gotta old lunchbox full of yugioh cards somewhere in my house. is it worth looking thru it to see if any are worth anything I have no idea what would be valuable
great, love all that illuminati bullshit
