Hey guys I’m new to the forum but I’ve been looking for a good forum to discuss old school pokemon card collecting and this seems like a great place for that.
Recently I acquired brand new Pokemon Japanese Vending Machine Series 1 and 2. Both are new on all 18 sheets. They’re currently in the mail to me. I paid $95 for series 1 and $83 for series 2. Did I get ripped off? I had difficulty figuring out how much they were worth as they’re pretty hard to find. Also I wanted to peel them off the sheets and add them to individual protectors in an ultra pro premium binder, but are they worth considerably more on the sheets than off? Also there are three ebay auctions selling series 1,2,3 on separate auctions. The cards are peeled off and there is only one of each card as opposed to the complete sheet collection which has many duplicates. They have one bid on each at $30, $30, and $40 for each series respectively. But of course they may go up considerably by the end of the auction tonight. What are these worth? Is it worth bidding on them or is it better to have all the cards including the duplicates as a set? Thanks for the help!
Ok I was able to get the entire series 1-3 peeled. So when that comes in I’ll look it over and see if the condition is satisfactory. In the mean time I’ll consider if I’m going to hold on to series 1 or sell it. If I sell it you’ll be the first to know. Thanks!
Not much more maybe if you collect them 1 by one by that is painstaking I’ve bed trying to track down 2 cards to complete my set and it’s a pain but a complete set doesn’t usually come up for that cheap
Ok ebay has a set for $350 but a couple cards have creases. Ugh I hate creases. Even if they were mint though I wouldn’t buy them. I spent a lot of money on pokemon cards recently and need to chill for a while. Thanks for the info.
Sweet thanks for the ideas! I’ve been looking around at CoroCoro promos and think they’re sweet and stumbled upon a Natta Wake Pikachu and thought it was pretty sweet so really want one of those. But most of those I’ve never heard of so I’ll have to check them out after the CoroCoro and Natta Wake!
