Also, I know I'm breaking the rules for listing more than 4 cards at once and listing Common and Uncommon cards, but I have a bunch of Japanese cards that need pricing, and it would just be tedious to list 4 at a time, so here they are.

Japanese Vaporeon - BW8 - 009/051
Japanese Staraptor - BW8 - 045/051

Rares: 1

Japanese Volcarona - BW9 - 012/076

All of them are in near-mint condition, if not fully mint. If these cards aren't worth anything, then I have nothing good that I own except for the McDonald's promo Pignite.
Japanese cards can be tricky to evaluate. Not having very large sample sizes to go off of on eBay, I can only give estimates based on the rarities: All commons: $0.10 to $0.20. All uncommons: $0.15 to $0.25. Volcarona: $2 to $4.

Charizard - Plasma Storm - 136/135
Well, it's more common than the fixed one, as it doesn't look like they've really released the fixed one in any print runs yet. The initial rush to buy packs by players in collectors is what determines what cards are readily available, and as the error, if it's even been fixed at all (I've yet to see a fixed version myself), was the version in the set at its release, that's going to be the most common version of the card.

The misprint most commonly fetches between $35 and $45 on eBay, with some outliers on both sides of the range.
