This is my first post. :)
Well, there aren't many places to accurately get what a Japanese card would be worth in English. You pretty much just have to look at eBay's completed listings for the Japanese version of the card. Basically, your search terms would consist of "Japanese *insert Pokemon name here* *insert set card is from in either Japanese or English here*". For example, if I were to search for the Japanese Base Set Charizard, I would type in the search bar "Japanese Base Set Charizard", then switch the search filter options to show only the completed listings and base the price off of what has sold recently. Now, if I were to search for a Japanese card I know the Japanese set that it is from, I would search using the Japanese set name. For example, if I wanted to learn the value of the Full Art Meloetta EX from the Japanese Shiny Collection, I would type "Meloetta EX full art Shiny Collection". Get the idea now?

Alternatively, you could just post it here and have someone else look it up for you.

Everyone else, I'll get to your cards later today!

Is it possible that cards with shining star are not Ultra Rara? The reason I asked is that I saw on eBay that they have cards with shining name and star, but they do not call them Ultra Rara and, instead, they call the star foil star. These cards run from $2 to $5 a piece. These cards has shining text on the picture like “Team Rocket” or “Crystal Guardians”.

I cannot find the cards in troll and toad.

Also, are there any sites that will allow me to check for price like troll and toad?

The following is one of the cards I have that I cannot find the card (and price):
Dark Hypno 6/109. Shining text and star with "ex Team Recket Returns" written on the picture.

Well, with Dark Hypno, that particular card doesn't have a "shining star" for its rarity, just a star that happens to get the holofoil treatment on its alternate holofoil version. Most sets printed between the releases of the sets you've named had alternate holofoils like you describe (holofoil picture and rarity symbol as well as the set logo printed on the picture) rather than the reverse holofoil alternate prints the majority of the sets from outside those years had/have.

Thank you, don. Could anyone tell me what are the top 10 most valuable cards in the original base set of 151/150?

@Sleeping Snorlax: based on Troll and Toad, you can get them (Charizard ex - 105/112 - Ultra-Rare) for $99.99 a piece, but they are currently sold out. You can sell the card to them for about $41.

I'm not sure off the top of my head, but from the 7 sets using the original 151 Pokemon, I know Prerelease Raichu is probably the most expensive one from those earlier sets, simply because it was a very limited error printing. Of the non-error cards, the king is 1st Edition Mint/Near Mint Base Set Charizard.

I forgot to answer your question on places aside from Troll and Toad to find values:

1. Average prices of sold completed listings on eBay.

2. Bebesearch.com (uses the prices on Professor-Oak.com).

3. Other online sellers like PokeOrder and Collector's Cache.

Although my preferred pricing method is the average prices for the completed listings on eBay that actually managed to sell.

All of the cards in the lot were 1st edition, including the eight trainer cards in the lot, and all were in mint condition. The kid who sold them to me found them for free at a garage sale. He's not interested in Pokemon so he sold them to me.
I'd find the values myself, but I can't find values for 1st edition anywhere. Can anyone help?

I have 2 Japanese Pokemon cards, and I have no idea where to look for a price.

Magikarp: Bottom right it says 'No. 118' (Its a common but since it's Japanese I thought I would ask)

Clefairy: Bottom right it says 'No. 173' (Has 2 Stars next to the Height and Weight. Also in better condition than the Magikarp.)

If anyone can help it would be much appreciated. My First Post

(Sorry if the quality is bad I used my phone camera)

I have a Pikachu card that looks like the "Pikachu (Yellow Cheeks) - 58/102 - Oversized Promo" except that it is in the regular size.

It has "@1999-2000" instead of just "@1999" like what's on the card from the original base set. I looked through each of the Pikachu cards listed on Troll and Toad, but was unable to find it. Could someone help to identify this card? The color is also a little different from the the card from the original base set.

I would post a photo if I could, but I do not know how. This site does not even lets me post a link.

Sorry for the late reply (kinda had a very busy week and was only able to get around to replying just now), but that's a lot of freaking cards to evaluate in one go. I'm assuming that the reason nobody else has even attempted to price them is the fact that your album has 64 images in it, which probably means that there's 180 cards to price out.

I'm going to go ahead and merge this thread with our "How Much is this Card Worth?" sticky thread, where it may get more attention by those who are willing to dive through and price your cards.

Now i'm guessing this card is not a rare, or original card, but I'll still give it a hot on here

Name: Vileplume. HP80. LV.35

Set: Jungle.

Unfortunately, I do not see any resemblance to this being an original print other than the fact that all the Copyright dates (Nintendo, Game Freak inc., Creatures inc.) are from 1996 . It is holographic.

Illustrated by Keiji Kinebuchi No. 45. There is a single black star in the bottom right corner of the card.

1. Card name.
2. Set the card is from. You can tell this by the set symbol located either in the bottom right corner of the card or to the bottom right of the picture.
3. The collector's number (the number in the bottom right corner of the card that goes something like 1/102 or 1/64 or 1/99) of the card.
4. Whether it is first edition or not (as in, does it have a 1 inside a solid black circle to the bottom right of the picture). This only applies to cards from sets released before the Legendary Collection in English. Japanese cards, on the other hand, are a different story.
5. Whether it is shadowless or not (as in, having no shadow behind the picture and not having bolded HP text). This only applies to cards from the Base Set (the only set that has no set symbol).

1 -
Mewtwo (Japanese),
Believed from Expedition with a 1st edition symbol next to the expansion symbol. 086/128.
NA.

2 -
Houndoom (Japanese)
Believed from Expedition with a 1st edition symbol next to the expansion symbol. 019/092.
NA

3 -
Entei (Japanese)
Believed from Expedition with a 1st edition symbol next to the expansion symbol. 026/087

4 -
Charizard (Japanese)
Believed from Expedition with a 1st edition symbol next to the expansion symbol. 012/029

They are in great condition, not mint/near mint with some fading on the borders, but they are old cards. I'd love a price check on these, please.

I have pictures but can't post them because of my post count. Sorry.

So I'm trying to figure out the value of my son's Pokemon cards. I will attach pictures here as I am a Mom that has no idea what to even say to determine value. He also has a ton of Japanese ones that my husband would pick up during his travels 2006-2007 to Tokyo. I really don't want to post all of those, but if anyone could give me info on how to id Japanese card values...that would be great. I'm only posting the cards here that have 1995-2001 listed on the bottom as I figure these out of all of his cards would have the most value.
