Official "How much is my card worth?" Thread 2012/2013/2014 Edition [READ THE FIRST POST]
This is the new thread where you can ask how much your card is worth. Don't be afraid to help out with the pricing. Doing it all by myself is pretty boring and time-consuming and I'd like to learn what sources other people use for pricing their cards.
Remember there is to be no selling on PokéCommunity. This thread is only to ask about the typical value of a card. If you wanna sell, you'll have to find another community online for it.
As a courtesy to those who are pricing cards, do not list more than 4 cards at a time! If you have listed 4 cards and they haven't been priced yet, wait until they're priced! 4 at a time per person per pricing round is a reasonable limit to keep things manageable for those who actually care enough to price out cards! Personally, I will only price the first 4 cards you list if you list more than 4 before I've had a chance to price out your first 4! The only exception to this is asking about an entire set, which counts as one card for the purpose of this rule, since 90% of the time, there's precedent for selling a completed set together.
When listing a card, please provide as much information as possible. The ideal information consists of the following:
1. Card name.
2. Set the card is from. You can tell this by the set symbol located either in the bottom right corner of the card or to the bottom right of the picture.
3. The collector's number (the number in the bottom right corner of the card that goes something like 1/102 or 1/64 or 1/99) of the card.
4. Whether it is first edition or not (as in, does it have a 1 inside a solid black circle to the bottom right of the picture). This only applies to cards from sets released before the Legendary Collection in English. Japanese cards, on the other hand, are a different story.
5. Whether it is shadowless or not (as in, having no shadow behind the picture and not having bolded HP text). This only applies to cards from the Base Set (the only set that has no set symbol).
And one more thing:
Please do not ask for prices of commons and uncommons, as they are generally worth less than $0.50 apiece. If you did not know, these are the cards that have a little black circle (black circles indicating a rarity of common) or a little black diamond (black diamonds indicating a rarity of uncommon) on the bottom right corner of the card. The reason this rule has been added is because too many people are asking about prices for commons, and pricing is too time consuming to price out cards of these rarities when the vast majority of these are worth less than fifty cents. Some notable exceptions to this include very useful Trainer cards that are legal in the current modified format.
As an added note, this thread is exempt from the rule that states there is to be no double posting. Though spamming is completely not okay.

So, all of this is all notes. Every card was from the Diamond and Pearl era (i.e. 2007). I think that this is all around $95, but I'm wondering what everyone else thinks. So, what is the price of all 178 of these cards?
POKEMON CHARIZARD HOLO STAGE 2/120 HP 4/102.
POKEMON DARK CHARIZARD STAGE 2 4/82 HOLO 80HP.
Blaines Charizard Holo Pokemon Card Gym Challenge 2/132.
All Holos, all in NM condition. worth $55?
Need answer within 30 mins, please if you see this give me a quick answer.
Also, is Base set the same as 1st edition? if not, what is a NM Base Set Charizard worth?
And no, that is NOT a first edition Charizard.
Well nevermind, times up on them. Missed opportunity i guess.
How come mines prices not posted?
I have been holding onto a Diamond/Pearl: Secret wonders Venusaur (holographic, Near Mint condition). The name is also holographic, but hard to make out because the name "Shuppet" was printed over top (holographic as well).
I checked for symptoms of it being fake... it's not. I have a factory misprint card, that has not happened on a large enough scale to be noticed (seeing as how Google searches for others of this card turned up zilch).
Is is valuable, or possibly fake after all?
found old book of holo and 1st edition cards
i found this book of 1st edition and holographic cards, im not a collector of pokemon cards and i am wondering if i have anything of any value or rarety. please if anyone could let me know what i have thank you

I Have Ancient Mew, have no idea what the HP is :--D I got it from movies when it was year 2000..
Does anyone know how much a 1st edition charizard card is worth in Spanish and Dutch? They are in mint condition.
Ok, 3 more cards:
Gligar (Shadowless i think)
HP: 350 (!?!?)
Retreat Cost: ***** (5)(!?!?!)
49/90 - Nothing but the hp and retreat cost are weird about this one...except that the hp and name text are in gold...
12/114 - If its holographic, its the weirdest holo ive ever seen, it makes it almost impossible to see in the pic!
Same thing as the Maractus, but 5x as bad....
Proabably all fakes, i got them in package though, but its probably not too hard to forge a fake plastic wrapping too :P
If I had to guess (since I've been having trouble finding some for sale on eBay), I'd say they'd fetch between $10 and $20 based on the price of the English one.
Maractus is likely real. Not sure if it's a holofoil rare or not (I think it is), but that looks like the new holo pattern they're using on Pokemon cards now.
Munna looks fake.
Could you get better pictures up? I'd also like to know what the set symbol for the card is. It's at the lower-right-hand corner of the card, and for these two is should be a square box with 4 square boxes inside of it, the top-left and bottom-right ones being white, and the top-right and bottom-left ones being black.
and if the maractus and munna arent fake, what are they worth individually?
and if the maractus and munna arent fake, what are they worth individually?
I wont even bother with better pics, those are the best i could get, atleast of maractus and munna. the new holofoil makes pictures almost impossible, atleast with my phone camera.
Zekrom 114/114 full artwork, mint condition. Just got it today.
Got a little silver/white star next to 114.
Try ripping one of the commons you got in the pack, it shouldn't rip too easily if it's real. Also when you break it there should be an in betweent the image and the cardboard, if there is then it's fake.
Donavannj, I feel bad about you handling all the queries in these threads, but there are just sooo many. I will try to help, but perhaps there is a more efficient way? Some sort of central reference to handle the really tedious stuff like 100 common fossil cards, etc.
Ok full art zekrom: $10
Ancient mew: with packaging $4, without packaging $1.
Regarding the long lists of commons, uncommons, and rares:
If a card has a common rarity, i.e. a circle on the bottom right corner, it will not fetch you more than 10 cents, regardless of what set it is from.
If it is uncommon, i.e. the diamond in the bottom right corner, you could get 20 cents.
Rare, which is a plain black star and no holofoil on the card, will go between 75 cents to $1.
Holographic rares, lvl X's, ex's, full arts, 1st edition cards, special promos, and secret rare cards are the only ones with individual prices. That being said, I hope everyone will revise their lists so that donavannj and anyone else will not be overwhelmed with picking through hundreds of common cards.
Though don't early set (as in, Neo Revelations or earlier) common cards fetch closer to $0.50 each?
BeliVuk: the price has been fluctuating due to the zekrom deck being more or less popular with players. Now that we are approaching regionals, nationals, and worlds, prices for playable cards will be steadily rising.
Donavannj: Perhaps just a short guide based on rarity symbols in the original post, so people can refer to it when they are wondering about mass common cards?
To alleviate some of the questions about shiny cards people pull from packs, I was thinking of making a thread that would include what the popular cards are and their values. I find a lot of the questions are really just people wanting to know if they pulled anything good in their packs, and it might also be handy for people who want to know what cards are being played. I can update it every once in a while to keep it current. What do you think?
p.s. as for the neo sets, the overall sets and the rare cards are more rare than some other sets, but I find that for commons and uncommons the difference is pretty much negligible. The rarest commons and uncommons come from the Eseries, because there was a smaller print run. Still, the difference may not be worth mentioning.
