Found massive stash of cards - Need help!
Hi there. I know there are some threads to help valuing cards, but this is kinda big so i decided to make a thread of my own.

Thing is, not too long ago i was at a recycling station. Here i found a massive folder filled with pokemon cards in the drawer of some old furniture. I'm not very good with pokemons, so i decided to seek help here :D

I wish to sell the cards, as i don't really have any interest in keeping them. I want to know what they are worth, how they can best be sold and where.

Below is a list of the pokemons in the folder (Trainers, Energy and stuff like that will be added later) sorted after the rarity icons and their names in alphabetical order - amount of each pokemon is included, as well as if they are glittering.
If there is something that cathces your eyes, feel free to ask for details i may have forgotten/don't know about. I can also provide time-stamped photos if required.

Also, some of the cards has a "1'st edition" badge thingy, which i was told made them more valuable.

Thank you for your time :D
I will post the list of trainer/energy stuff later

Without the sets, this doesnt help much. Pictures would be useful.

Thedoktor May 10th, 2013 10:38 AM

Didn't know what you meant with "sets" at first, but i think i got it figured out now.

Every single card is generation 1 & 2 as far as i can tell. All the year-numbers on the bottom at the cards Range from 1995 to 2001

I will try to take a picture of some of the rares just to give you an idea about everything.

Demon. May 10th, 2013 11:14 AM

You could just start collecting? :D

Thedoktor May 10th, 2013 11:27 AM

Nah, my interests are elsewhere atm, and it would be a shame to have these lie about in the home of an unenthusiastic collector :3

I do believe my younger self would have been mindblown by this collection however xD

Edit: I updated the "Rare" section with set numbers and notifications on whether they are holographic and/or 1st Editions.

Also, is this website a good place to base your pricings off?
www . professor-oak . com / cardorders / PlayerPriceCheckForm . asp

That is not exactly the best website to base pricings off of. Using the "Show Only Completed Listings" feature on eBay, though, you can look up what a card has sold for (sold listings have green prices, while unsold listings have red prices) by calculating the average selling price for all the recently sold listings of a card (pay close attention to the details, because the 1st edition listings of a card will show up even in a search for the non-1st edition listings because of how the search feature on eBay works). The average price of the recently sold eBay listings is much more accurate for determining the value of a card.

Necrum May 11th, 2013 12:08 AM

Sets actually is not about generation. It's about what package it was released in. You should see a symbol on the bottom right hand side of the picture. If there's no symbol, then it's base set, which is the first one. If there's a little flower symbol, it's Jungle Expansion, if there's a fossil, it's Fossil expansion, and the list goes on. You can find out what symbols mean what set on web sites like Bulbapedia, or even Serebii I think. Definitely would make it easier to identify how much something is worth if you know what you actually have.

Thedoktor May 11th, 2013 3:59 AM

Updated the rare list with said symbols. There should be no doubt which cards those are now xD

Necrum May 11th, 2013 4:57 PM

It's a shame thatb Base Charizard is damaged. Out of curiosity, does the Charizard have thinner HP lettering, and is there a shadow along the edge of the picture?
