Thought this could be a good twist on the “Purchases” Topic.
Post your best purchases in the past that could never be seen again.
Personally I bought a CGC 9.5 Munch Psyduck for $300 back in 2021
Bought an Ultra premium Hidden Fates Rayquaza Box for $250
Bought a CP3+ Ultra Premium empty Box for $200 that came with everything minus rares out of the packs. It came with a sealed Shaymin Promo that alone went for $300 sealed.
Bought a PokeKyun Sealed MINTY Box for $1,600 (Biggest Purchase for me at the Time)
How far are we looking back? This could get painful to watch
Lol whatever you want to post as long as you purchased it. But no crying please, do that on Facebook.
I guess my best one was skyridge gyarados holo for 9$ 4 years ago, couldn’t believe my eyes when i saw my search alert, even more so when the card actually arrived
Probably when I started purchasing some booster boxes when I got back into the hobby right around and after college, 2009-2010 ish… I purchased an Ex Power Keepers, FRLG, Rising Rivals and maybe Supreme Victors booster boxes? I still have the email receipt from Dave and Adams card world for the Power Keepers box for $69.95. Let’s see if i can get this screenshot to work…
Buying unlimited Base from Poland and the Neo Gen box my best T17 came from.
Nothing too crazy for me since I came back in 2020, but these elite trainer boxes have done well, except Hidden Fates
I’ve bought some great things and missed out on some even better ones. My favorite thing to do is purchase collections and sort through them.
I picked up this wonderful deal off Mercari back in mid 2020
Just sorting through the collection was worth the price alone :), no super rare cards but a few no rarities. I believe I’ve only kept some of the playable trainers, vending and promos but it was such a fun purchase and often think about finding another similar one day.
Bought a bunch of Team Rocket Returns packs for 3.99 when it came out. Pretty good purchase.
I bought all 4 complete jp neo sets in nm(minus the shinings) in 2017 when i first started for like $200… still have them all in a binder! Great to look at, and definitely one of my favorite early purchases
Hard to see from the pic but there’s some sealed Generations product, and tons of NM-M WotC holos including base & base 2 Charizard/Blastoise, mint Dragonite Fossil and there were a ton of others on other pictures (eBay mobile can’t pull up pictures from 90+ day purchases)
Man, I was looking into PokeKyun boxes just today. Bummed I missed out on that one!
Best TCG related would be a binder as a kid that my dad had me keep all my more “valuable” pokemon/digimon/sports cards in.
I think the one purchase thats raised the most is my cp6 booster box. Got it for I think 95 bucks
Mine is a 1st edition base Charizard for $500 back in 2019. Also a PSA 10 1st Edition Dark Charizard in 2018 for $465.
Think best thing I got was a sealed base set shadowless box for $60 dollars in like 2009-2012 but the fun thing was last 3 cards in the pack were 1st edition
Did it have a 1st edition rare in them too?
Complete Skyridge holo set (minus crystals, starmie, houndoom) graded PSA 9 with a few 10s
$2000 Jan 1 2020
I won a pokekyun box like this one for $50 on auction probably around 2019
$500 for a master scroll that graded psa 10 sometime early 2018
Basically anything before 2018 is going to be a steal by today’s standards
