    So, while I don't have a value for you (been trying to find what's supposed to be in the complete set to confirm), they are all from the first Pokemon World Collection.

    Actually, scratch that, I think there's supposed to be 9 cards in there. It seems to be worth anywhere between $40 and $60 as a set.
    Thanks I have 9 cards so presume that would be the set

      So i found my old pokemon card collection in a card folder i had and decided to see what they go for these days. I did some research and found that the good ones to have are shadowless or first edition, i have neither of those. I dont want to sell them anyway but would any of these be worth getting a PSA rating? Theyre all base set 1999 except for the snorlax. Any help is appreciated, they are all in pristine condtion as they were kept in card sleeves in a folder and never played with. I have more that arent in the photo ie. zapdos and magneton.

        Is this worth having sent out to be graded? It is a Holo.

          Could someone tell me what I could expect if I sell this card? As you can see it is a first edition holo. I would discribe the condition as near perfect/perfect. On ebay I found offers from around 50 EUR up to 500 Dollar.

          Thanks for your help.

          Nah. Too many scratches on it, IMO.

          Were you checking the Sold Listings? Sold listings are what matters, not what is actively being listed, as what people are willing to buy for and what people are tryingt. Considering the English one only sold for about $20 USD (and the English language cards tend to be worth more than non-English cards), you should expect $10 US for it. Those listings you've seen are people trying to convince someone it's worth that much, honestly. Also, your card is not in perfect condition as far as I can tell. I see scratches on the card which would lower the value, to something more like $8 USD.

            The scratches were on the plastic sleeve it was in. Here is a scan without sleeve.

            Still too many scratches and frayed edges to be worth grading now. Maybe in 10 or 15 years.

              1. Has anyone ever seen a holographic Dark Flareon from Team Rocket set? Makes me think the card is fake but not quite sure

              2. What about the square cuts? I have much more than just this Raichu but was curious if there is a good way to tell if these are real or fake

                Depends on condition, a photo is abit hard to judge from,also depends on how much you want to spend? I'd spend it to see how they turn out etc,but as I said before it depends on the scratches and corners also if they are played cards you wont get a good grading.

                  Ok so in one of my videos I got a ink spill card,the back of the card was mostly blue,Im thinking of getting it graded.

                  I saw a hunter fossil card on ebay for tonnes of cash PSA graded,now I know that its a vintage card and it was a HOLO, my card is a Basic Venipede card from Burning Shadows,If I was to grade it would it be worth much in the future.....say 20 years down the track?

                  https://youtu.be/d4Nn92PKX4I heres the video the card comes up around 7:40mins into the video so skip it and have a look.

                  But yeah guys be keen to hear your thoughts,and see what i can do with it.

                  cheers Tyrant.

                    I have a Weedle card from the Base Set that has a gold dot in one of the corners of the picture. I was wondering if that makes it worth more money or not. It is Card # 69/102.

                    I wouldn't bother with a PSA grading for the Venipede. Most commons don't have significant value, even from the Base Set, and that sort of defect isn't really something that most people seek out that would inflate the value.

                    Late, but I've never seen that so I'm inclined to think it's counterfeit.

                    Square cuts are generally real, but sometimes people buy uncut card sheets that Wizards of the Coast never cut and then cut them themselves to artificially inflate the supply of square cut cards to take advantage of the demand that exists for them, though their pricing is pretty hard to pin down as the market for them is a smaller subset of collectors.

                    It's just a manufacturing defect that quite frankly doesn't improve the value at all.

                      Hi, I have an almost complete set - including variations - of the 1996 Pokemon set in Japanese. Set includes 435 cards including 92 hologram cards. All have gone from packs to a binder in 1996 and have been sitting in my closet for 22 years. All are in pristine condition - never played with. What do you think this is all worth? Please email me at [email protected] as I am not sure where to find answers here. Thanks

                        I was cleaning my room and found these cards. Can anyone tell me how much they are worth or what grade they are?

                          Your Dark Flareon is fake, though a quite convincing one. Apart from the fact that it was never officially printed as a holo, what gives it away are the incorrect fonts below the WRRC area. The Pokédex description font should match that in the info bar, but you can see that the t's, g's and 1's (to name a few) don't match. The illustrator credit is also the wrong font and too thin.

                          They're all fake.

                          Mew and Starmie are pretty convincing at a glance, but these cards were never printed with this kind of foil pattern (they were only ever printed with the iconic galaxy foil or as reverse refractor foils) and the e-Reader symbol in the corner shouldn't have the foil applied to its bevel or line protruding from it. The holo bars in the border should also match the color of the card's type, but these are yellow/gold.

                          As for Charizard, the fonts are terribly wrong, Pokémon is missing the accented e, the Energy icons are bloated (these come from Energy card artwork, which differ from Energy costs), there are a few instances where spaces are missing, and the "Don't apply W/R" text isn't italicized as usual. Far too many issues to pass quality check, even if it were a misprint. Also, they didn't even make an effort to remove the holo dots from the art background (which I bet don't even shine) and that type of holographic film is a dead giveaway of counterfeits.

                              Hi, pretty new to Pokémon.
                              My 11 year old son and me have like literally thousands of cards, from the first editions to the sun&moon 2018 edition.
                              He's going to school, returns with cards, gives away cards.
                              Last week-end we started to order them by year, but we still have no idea what we are doing are what we are supposed to do.
                              It seems that some of the cards we have are worth a lot of money.
                              Therefor now we want to figure out how to proceed. Any advice is welcome....
                              Thx,
                              J.

                              Gonna scoot this over for the TCG mods. :)

                              Though, I suggest you look through the cards and perhaps post pictures or information about them here so we can help you assess their value. The name of the Pokemon, the expansion it's from, the little numbers at the bottom - stuff like that.

                              Redirected all of this to my favorite sticky.

                              Urnehe: As Fairy correctly pointed out, we need more info. Sets and numbers do if you know where to look, otherwise anything with GX or EX in its name is a decent start.

                              Spawnzor: A quick scan didn't return anything of value. However, there are a few more experienced price checkers if you want to let them look.

                              I haven’t looked through all the pics but that 1st edition Fossil Raichu is really cool. Usually runs about $11, if I remember correctly.

                              Edit; check it out.

                                Does the little hand thing on the right mean anything?

                                The hand thing is what is called the set symbol. The hand in particular means it's a part of the Fossil set.

                                  Kind of. This WikiHow guide covers a fair bit of how to tell: https://www.wikihow.com/Know-If-Pok%C3%A9mon-Cards-Are-Fake

                                  I generally don't recommend the tear test, though.
