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.

Middlegeorge, I've gone ahead and merged your thread into the appropriate thread and will get back to you on values later in the day. Check back in about 4 hours and check back again in about 10 hours from now if I've not valued them in 4 hours. Also note that old does not necessarily mean more valuable. I've got a card from 2006 that is worth around $100, while the bulk of my cards from 2000 would barely fetch $0.50.

Sorry, middlegeorge and slapman! I didn't have a chance to price your cards this evening. I'll give them a shot tomorrow. Slapman, I'll only be pricing the first 6 you listed in my first go-round tomorrow, since pricing is a tedious and time-consuming process simply because of how much clicking and searching is involved in my methods. I may get to the rest later, but I'm not sure if I'll have time for more than your first 6 and middlegeorge's 5 tomorrow.

Since I was too busy again today, I'll give you tips on how to do it yourself:

1. Go to eBay.
2. Search the card you want to get a price for.
3. Change the search filters so it only shows you the completed listings.
4. Tally up the value of all the sold listings that actually sold, and then divide the value by the total number of sold listings. Also, generally assume that with commons and uncommons, if you see them individually going for an average price very close to $1 on eBay, they are probably worth considerably less than that. If the average value is higher, then they're probably at the higher value. Rares generally don't go any lower than $1 in price unless they're completely useless and in very poor condition.

$1 to $3. Despite being from a hard to find set, it's still only an uncommon at its core.

Here's the link to my picture collectiom, change the Dot to . since this site doesn't let newer users post URLS
minus[Dot]com/mS9eyVtYcxXL4
I'm not too familiar yet with what's valuable but I took pictures of some, should I take more pictures of anything japanese? I appreciate anyone helping me out, I just want a rough estimate on any good ones

I swear I had a Charizard 1st edition Hologram base set 1 (which is worth ~$500?) but I can't find it, might have given away

How much is the Alakazoom Base 1 vs Base Set 2?

Should I also be looking out for "Shadow less prints"? And 1st edition Trainer cards? Are promo cards worth good?

Edit: Mewtwo ex is worth about $10

ebay(dot)com/bhp/mewtwo-ex-101-109

Blastoise is normally worth $5 but mine has that weird green thing so probably about $1?

ebay(dot)com/itm/NM-MINT-Holo-Pokemon-Card-Team-Rocket-DARK-BLASTOISE-3-82-First-Edition-/141102542182?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20da5ded66

Zapados/Ditto is around $3?

Lapras and Moltres and Aerodactyle is $1 each?
