So I collected pokemon cards from atleast 4-9 years old, and I have a pretty decent collection. I have a whole section in my book dedicated to holographics, crappy ones, potions, and whatever else there is that I cant remember....
I have a full book, with the exception of about 20 pages missing that I never got to fill up because my parents stopped buying me cards . Twenty pages isn't anything compared to the full size of everything that is in it though.
I have the one mew card that got released for people that only went to see the movie, but it is in pretty poor condition because I'm pretty sure I found it laying around somewhere, or someone gave it to me.
I am taking it into a store tomorrow or the day after to get looked at, and will most likely sell it. It will be hard for me to sell it though because it was a huge part of my childhood, but I really want to start saving up money...

You may not be able to afford all of them, depending on where you buy them from. It also depends on the cards you have.

No matter their condition, you're probably not going to get anywhere near as much for them as you're hoping to get, unfortunately. That Mew you mention only fetches $2 to $4 in mint/near mint condition, which is much better condition than the one you describe is in.

Really, only the holographics are worth selling, and, even then, most won't fetch more than $5.

I went and googled all the holographic prices and 4 or 5 of them were worth 15-20$ at most, so that alone will make me happy

Which ones? Those prices could easily be exaggerated.

If you have pictures of your collection we could give you a much better estimate. I personally suggest not selling them tho until you figure out exactly what you have. Those small shops often try to rip people off that aren't aware of what they have. Depending on the set and whether or not there 1st editions in NM or Mint condition you can pull anywhere from 50-150 bucks for a single card. So be careful!
