I just realized how low the pop was for Marill in the Japanese Southern Islands set. I now own 9 of the 26 PSA 10s of this card. I know this card has bad centering issues and corner chips straight out of the pack, but holy cow! If only they were trophy cards haha =)
I also have 7 of the 46 Southern Island Mews as well! woot woot!
I honestly just love the Southern Islands set. Similar to Scott, it’s what got be back into Pokemon back in 2012. I have a ton of the sealed sets in Japanese and 2 sets in English. I never bought these with the intention of seeing them shoot up in value or anything, I truly just wanted a bunch of sets to one day grade some 10s for myself. Obviously today’s market is a different story but it just makes these cards that more precious to me.
