I prefer the older cards as they remind me of the fun when I was younger,
I am a perfectionist and completionist to be fair, and when this comes to pokemon cards, especially the new series this can be done very fast but its expensive.
Should I sell my current dragons exalted/boundaries crossed cards and just go for the 1st and 2nd generation as it would probably mean more to me,
What I have against this is opening packs is fun and they look more cool and fresh.
Atm I've nearly completed base/jungle/fossil, but I wanna go for rockets and gym too, then on to the 2nd gen etc, ill probably buy a booster pack now and then for the fun of it, but yeh it should be fun
Imo when buying the older cards its always worth buying somebody's old collection second hand. As long as you confirm they are in good condition and no fakes you should be fine. Plenty of people on ebay are sellig their old cards. In fact I got some in the mail today. Someone's old collection consisting of 500 + cards and I got some amazing cards from original sets through to Neo and GYM :D You can get more for your money unless you prefer the excitement of boosters. And you can then fill in any you are missing after
