I’m on Instagram now! www.instagram.com/pichucollector
Figured I’d share my collection. I accidentally had my camera set up to capture absolutely massive images, so I’ve used the large-sized Imgur thumbnails in this post. To see the full-size image, just open the image in a new tab and remove the “l” just before the “.jpg” at the end of the URL.
I’ve had my eye on Pichu since my parents took me to a market once when I was about 10 or 11 and one of the stalls had, for whatever reason, one Japanese Neo Genesis Pichu for sale - I wasn’t allowed to have it! Fast forward a few years and the first Pichu I got my hands on was from the Expedition Base Set in early 2003; I was at my friend’s house and his younger sister had just opened a booster pack which had it in. I’d completely missed the Neo series at this point and this was the first e-Reader card I’d ever seen. I traded her a holo Clefable and Butterfree from Jungle for it.
I’ve set up a Google Sheets page listing the cards I have (and still need). You can find that here if you’re interested: docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/128UdcSeI7QNm30k-vgoY2Jw0e2Qyfuj4dLhDb4Op-oY
These are my PSA 10-graded cards. None of these were graded by me. These are loosely in date order.
This one is my favourite Pichu. The artwork has never been released in English.
I also have the Neo Premium File 2 Pichu in PSA 10, but PSA labelled it incorrectly, so I’ve not included it here.
Ready to be graded
These cards are cards I’ve had in my collection for a long time which I’m soon sending off to get graded. These ones are specifically the cards which I think have a high chance of being graded a 10 (fingers crossed!).
The backs of the cards above:
The artwork for the card on the end is my efour avatar.
Banana Regular card for scale.
Feel free to ask me what some of these are. I’m not 100% certain on all of them though!
In the bottom right is a Lawson card which there are several varieties of. At the moment I only have this one, but will follow up shortly with some more pictures as I’ve got a whole load of them arriving in the post in the coming week.
Of the red-bordered cards (GBA Gum Cards) I’m missing only one: No. 201 (Jirachi). I went a bit mad and spent almost $250 on a big box of loads of these and several other types of card (1000+). Hopefully soon I’ll be able to share some pictures of those as well.
I’ve recently started collecting these Adventure Cards separately. They completely messed up the numbering though, as most of these cards are released in sets of 9 which can be put together to make a picture on the back… but at some point they released a set with more than 9 cards, meaning binders no longer reveal the full picture, but instead a broken one. Will share pictures of that at a later point as I don’t have it with me at the moment.
I only started collecting these about 2 months ago.
I love this one. It’s from Poképark in 2005, and I bought it expecting it to be in used condition. Instead it’s brand new and sealed in a pack with a 2005 “For Sale in Japan” sticker on the back.
It’s hard to tell from the picture but the 6 cards above were all damaged during shipping and all have a crease. You can sort of see it on the card in the top right, just above Cleffa’s foot. I’m missing 4 cards from this set that I’m aware of.
Aside from the ANA postcard, I have no idea what year the other three were available from the Pokémon Center. If anyone knows what year these are from, I’d love to know.
This one is from 2018! Pichu has been somewhat neglected for the past 7 years, but I’m glad it still features every now and then.
These cards are from my collection but aren’t PSA 10-worthy.
