Bought several packs today. The pull that stuck out in my mind was the Magic Room Gothitelle (which is unfortunately not as relevant with the emergence of EXs in the format).

Yep I get it now, I often see cardboard packs of boosters on ebay.

Highly considering buying a 1st ed Spanish booster pack for $355.00. Keeping in mind I am a collector and only have eyes on staring and admiring them and not playing with them. A 1st edition spanish charizard for example is worth more than an Unlimited one. What I like about the spanish set is the name of the pokemon is still in english regardless of everything else in spanish.

The box will end up up to $200 cheaper than any unlimited box i might try and pursue and as i said staring at the art and calling it Charizard in 1st edition is all i care about. The fact that they are shadowed also doesn't worry me too much.

Thoughts?.
If you really want it, go for it.

Out of my today's pulls I got the shiny Emboar in one of the boosters of the Mewtwo Jumbo/figurine pack. Before that I pulled FA Zekrom and FA Reshriam, and the shiny Chandelure. I love this Chandelure so much guys.

I've really spoilt myself and gone on a spending spree.

I've bought one of each of the packs from the base set and expansions. Including a 1st edition pack. I passed on 1st edition Jungle and Fossil because they aren't true 1st edition due to the fact they aren't shadowless. but I've still got money to keep going with it but not sure which way to head now.

I have no intentions of opening the 1st edition booster pack but will be kept as a collectors item. The Jungle, Foil and Base Unlimited will definitely be opened. Shadowless probably too.

Unfortunately i am a fraction short of a Jungle Booster box however I have enough to by mutiple more single packs.

So I finally got a chance to buy a few Dark Explorers yesterday and I decided to record myself opening the packs.



I used my iPhone to record and my Samson Condenser Microphone for the audio. I hope you enjoy and I might start doing these more often since I tend to buy a few packs every other week as a hobby now.

I'm also considering making a brief video showcasing my binder collection, however I might wait on that since I've only started collecting again a few months ago.

Not that I'm aware of. Are you sure it wasn't a Noble Victories booster?

Where did you buy the cards?

I got them from Target, and I made sure they were all Dark Explorers. The pack was all Noble Victories and the online booster card was also different from the other two packs.

Was it official Packaging with The Pokemon Company International's logo on it somewhere?

I recently got into collecting Pokemon cards again. The only noteworthy card I pulled is a Tornadus EX. Is it any good? Sorry for my ignorance but I pretty much know nothing about card rarities ahaha.

Considering EX cards are pretty hard to come by, I'd say that's a pretty rare pull.

I was at a League this past Saturday, and bought the last pack of Dark Explorers they had (from a box). I open it, and see a normal Darkrai EX! Talk about lucky!

Leafeon rare 6/108
Joltik Shiney 42/108

Just an update guys. The 1st edition booster pack never arrived and a refund was successfully given to me albeit through Paypal. So I bought a few odd little things like a Pokemon Folder to store my cards in.

Waiting on one of each of the Wizards of the Coast booster packs from Base set through to Skyridge all of which are 1st edition if they came out as that minus the base set so Neo Destiny 1st edition is a good addition to my collection and really deciding whether it be worth it opening it or not.

But Rocket, Gym Heroes, Gym Challenge, Jungle, Fossil and all neo series are in 1st edition.

Also two base set shadowless coming in the mail.

So hopefully they arrive today or tomorrow which is when I am expecting them too. Will post a embedded video from youtube once it's uploaded.

Above average because you managed to pull a Groudon EX in them.

Bought 2 packs of Dark Explorers yesterday, which were my first since I believe EX-Sandstorm (still remember nabbing Gardevoir-ex, Typhlosion-ex and Raichu-ex from 3 of the 4 packs I bought). I was fairly happy with what I got, and I did get 4 rare cards, since both of my reverse holos were rare (Eelektross & RH Krookodile in one, Bisharp & RH Blissey in the other). Also, found it funny I got a Pawniard and Chansey in the same pack as their evolutions.

Might consider going back another day to buy a few more packs, but they also had a blister pack for $5 that contained 25 random cards with a guaranteed holo. Just wish I knew how random the eras of those cards were.

The 25 random cards is probably filled with Diamond & Pearl and late advance era cards.

Went back today since I had a $10 store credit and considered two of those random packs, but saw that it said copyright 2006 on the bottom of a card, so you were probably right about them being D/P era cards.

I ended up picking up two packs of Dark Explorers instead, and while I got nothing of note in my first pack, my second one had a Raikou-EX in it, so I was more than happy with what I got.

I went to a Dragons Exalted prerelease today, and from the initial six packs I got both a normal Mew EX and a shiny Krookodile! I kinda wish it was a shiny Rayquaza, but I'm planning on attending a few more, so maybe I'll get one then.
