Mew Pokemon cards come in many flavours and forms. It’s very hard for me, as a Mew collector, to choose just one from my 78 cards. But there are a couple that stand out to me as my absolute favourites.
So here are my top three favourites:
Ancient Mew - American Release
This card was, amusingly, my very first Holy Grail when I was 12, because I did not have any kind of income at that age or any means to get this card. Because of my limited knowledge of cards at that stage, I didn’t know how mass produced this card was.
When I got it, I was thrilled. Amazed at the full holo over the back and front of the card, and delighted at it’s unique beauty.
To this day, I still feel that way about this card. The Japanese releases just never captured me as much as this card has; their shine doesn’t compare to me.
JR Railroad Lilypad Mew
This is a card I never thought I would own because of its rarity. That alone, along with the adorable illustration made this card one of my top wants for many years. I aquired it, amazingly, for free, from Jimmy Hume (who deserves all of my sincerest love for what he’s done for me and my collection ) and I was speechless for days, touching it to make sure it really WAS the non-glossy version.
Suffice to say, this card has sentimental value to me as well as rarity. To date, it remains a favourite.
Coro Coro Shining Mew
This card was never a grail, never really on my radar until I went hardcore collecting in 2008. I purchased a damaged one off E-bay for completion sakes, but then a fabulous friend of mine sold me a mint condition one for $15. It was when I recieved that one in all of it’s incredible glory that I REALLY fell in love with this card.
With a unique holograph on it, an adorable illustration and part of my favourite card design series (Neo), this card has yet to be beaten in terms of favourites.
Anyway, sorry to feature 3 cards, but it is so very hard to feature just one when there are so many I want to feature. :x
So, what’s your favourite Mew card?
