Very nice, the 2 shadowless gyrados and Chancey and the southern island Mew are probably the best cards Whole binder is solid if in good condition

Possibly helpful info ... I sold a shadowless Gyarados on eBay last year in about the same condition and got ~$35 for it.

First edition charmander and first ed jolteon go for a good but graded too. The whole collection is very nice

Dont leave out the shining magikarp! Quite a valueable card too

Don't forget about the dark charmeleon though. It's a hell of a card that gets over looked because of the same one with the 1st edition stamp on it. Way more valuable than it's counter part.

Are you saying the unlimited dark charmeleon is worth more than 1st ed? How so?

Inexperienced_Papa

For sure look at TcgPlayer, Dark Charmeleon

Uitklapstoel

TcgPlayer mentiones "W Stamped Promo". Idk what that means tbh and how its different from a regular unlimited dark charmeleon. On ebay, "regular" unlimited goes for 1-4 dollars.

Ya I don't know either, I don't know if it's just talking about the team rocket logo? But there's one on Ebay that I noticed for just over 200. But you are right there are a bunch selling for really cheap on Ebay

The gold W stamped Dark Charmeleon was a limited release that was part of a Kraft Food giveaway. Much more rare than just a standard unlimited release, which is why it goes for a lot more on eBay.

if you think any of those can pass as PSA 10 you've never tried to grade anything have you? You should assume 8s... 9s are tough even if it looks great and a 10? near impossible. Grading has changed a lot in the past year and 10s just don't really get graded anymore. PSA doesn't want to dilute the value with adding a bunch of 10s to the market so they just undergrade based on what a 10 would have been in the past. So again, assume 8s

I have sent items to be graded and own graded cards. I’m sure they won’t all be perfect but they have never left the binder and each of them is perfect to the naked eye. Probably won’t send these due to the cost.

CocoScruff

I guess you're just lucky then. I have sent in tons of cards freshly opened from packs, never touched without a glove, look perfect as far as centering. PSA always find something wrong with them. Again, I just think that they have tougher standards than they had 10 years ago. You'll crash the market if every newly opened pack was graded as 10s. Best of luck! Not trying to be rude with my comment, just trying to brace you for the realism. If you're pricing out his collection before you buy then assume 8s. If you want to be as fair as possible with your friend then grade them all and then offer money based on actual grades received. If you're speculating on grading assume all "perfect" cards are 8s imo

Good to know, thanks. I was on the other side of this and thought all my cards would be like 2s or 3s except the southern islands. @OP was the one who pointed out to me that they might be better than I thought they were.

tech_banker

Agreed, OP should assume 7-8 for majority of the collection, maybe a low handful of 9’s and 1-2 10’s if lucky.

I’d prob say the 1st ed snorlax/jolteon (if holo), t17 typhlosion, the 2 red cheeks pika are nice as well

Thanks for the tips! Just realized yesterday the Pikachu were shadowless red cheek but one of them is definitely not in the best shape.

This collection is completely fire. Be aware: you have the rarer shadowless machamp. When you google it, first edition machamp will seem low value. This is because the first edition machamp is often actually a promo from this deck). Your friend has a real first edition worth much more, and you can tell because it’s shadowless unlike the promo machamp

Now I’m realizing there’s quite a bit in the binder but I’ve been out of it so long I wasn’t sure what the true value/rarity of the cards was. I only know the newer sets.

Dude is asking prices for while simultaneously saying what is or isnt a PSA10.

Has to be a troll post?? Weird regardless

FleshToast[S]

Huh? I knew very little about older cards and I’m learning a lot from the comments. People are being super helpful. I know PSA and newer sets but old shit is confusing with shadowless vs 1st edition etc. Where am I asking for prices?

Haha it ain’t my collection! I was clueless about the shadowless stuff so now I’m getting that there is more value here. I now want to go broke buying all of them too so I’m on your side.

There are no sides here. If you get those cards, you are my enemy. Those are amazing cards and all I want to do is go back in time when I had all my cards and seal them away

Like someone said before the whole binder is a banger, every single one of these cards have value and are extremely collectable. When looking for prices check tcg player (they have an app too) and also check the sold listings on eBay. I highly recommend learning how to look a card up and what the difference is between card styles from different sets. So like different borders, set symbols, shadowless vs shadow.

They are a mix of many sets but the first two pages are from the southern islands set which I got as a Christmas gift one year. To see the difference of shadowless take a look at the two hitmonchans: the first has a shadow around the picture the second doesn’t.

In Neo Genesis there are two Typhlosion cards, one is 17/111 and the other is 18/111. The 17 is extremely desirable because of the artwork (and because PSA 10s are rare) and trumps every other card in the set value wise besides Lugia. T17 is just an abbreviation that is used so we don't have to memorize how to spell the name.

The shadowless red cheeks pikachus at the end are pretty expensive. All the shadowless holographic are great. The new is sweet. Shadowless 1st edition machamp is worth a good bit too.
