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.

            Let me check the charzard is worth 25$ in very good condition by itself so you hsave about 100$ for them all.

                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?

                    It would depend on how bad that stain is.

                        Kinda hard to make out where the stains are in that picture... but it doesn't look like they can be gently washed away with a slightly damp cloth.

                        As for the rest of those, I see a few higher value cards, but per my own guidelines in the first post, I've got to ask that you post 4 in particular you want to know the value of the most before coming back and asking about more.

                        Please remember to only post 4 at a time!
