Please help my son - Pokemon cards needed!

Post by behemoth on Sat Mar 05, 2011 6:43 am

My five year old left his small collection of Pokemon cards in his school shorts which were of course put in the washine machine...

So this morning he asked where his cards were, and it didn't take long for the shrivelled remains to be found, and hence the tears to start flowing!!!

So, does anyone have some old cards lying around that they no longer want? If so, please PM me.

First series were back in 98 or something so I probably have absolutely no chance of him having any, hopefully he can find some current stuff for you Smile

Hey Sweetest, in terms of spares, I'm looking at maybe 90% of the non-foil cards from the Basic and Jungle sets, in the first release of cards. I'm happy to go through and try and grab one of everything I can spare, or alternatively pick through for any/all cards you specifically want. Smile

I DO have all the foils from the first Basic set, and maybe 60% or so of the Jungle ones, but very very few doubles. Happy to see if I can let a few go if you've got special requests. Very Happy

Also... I've got way less First Edition release cards than I thought, but could probably still find a fair few, if you're specifically chasing em. Very Happy

Not much in the way of newer stuff though, sadly. Does this help at all?

Base Set

The Base Set, released on December 12, 1998, is the 1st set of 102 cards in the Pokémon Trading Card Game and the only one so far not to have a set logo or symbol (with the exception of the error "no symbol" Jungle set cards). It is one of few sets to include Fighting, Fire, Grass, Lightning, Psychic and Water Energy cards, now commonly known as basic Energy cards. The set also contained Double Colorless Energy, the first Special Energy card. The set is one of the more well-rounded sets available, with a mixed amount of Pokémon of all types, and includes only Pokémon from the original 150. Some of the more popular examples are Charizard, Blastoise, Venusaur and Pikachu. The set's four main theme decks, were based on four different strategies (offensive, defensive, tactic and speed). This set also had a 2-player starter set, containing two half-sized decks with no intended strategy. The '1st issue' print and a few of the following ('2nd issue') prints has a slightly different design than the standard 'unlimited' (aka '3rd issue') prints. These early prints are generally brighter in color, uses a thinner font, has the year 1999 appear twice in the copyright notice and lacks the shadow around the pictures. Because of this, these cards are known as 'shadowless' cards among collectors. Since not many prints were printed as 'shadowless', these cards are rarer and more valuable than the regular 'unlimited' cards. In addition, some prints printed right before the release of Base Set 2 has the year of 2000 included in their copyright notice. These cards are known as '4th issue' cards, and are also rarer than the 'unlimited' print.[1] Certain '4th issue' cards have slightly brighter color than the other prints.

Jungle

"Jungle" was the first expansion set in the United States, adding new Pokémon and one Trainer to the bunch, and was released on June 16, 1999. After being a very small set in Japan, the English set started the trend of having alternate holographic and non-holographic editions of rare cards, effectively doubling the number of rares in the set. Some cards featured were Pikachu, Gloom, and Victreebel. Unlike base, it had 2 preconstructed decks. The expansion symbol resembles a Vileplume and it has 64 cards.
