Oh I didn't know about the new sets!

But honestly, I don't think you'll be able to get a lot of money for it. My group of friends and I were talking about the nostalgic times like 3 weeks ago and there's no market in any store. I mean one of the guys I was talking about tried to sell his 1st edition holographic of the evolution of growlithe and no shop wanted to buy it.

Personally,I wouldn't sell any of my cards for nostalgic reasons...but I wouldn't pay high to have more

Your best luck bet is with the nostalgic people(if you find some)...and even there, you won't get that much

Maybe wait until the new Pokemon games come out in March and see if the interest rises at all. And everyone is broke from Christmas right now :\

Hmm... Well it seems like I'm better off just giving them to someone who has more use for them then I do or finding something else to do with them. XD

They're only first editions if they have a symbol on the card that says "1st edition". Otherwise they're later issues and not worth as much.

Those cards really aren't worth anything because of the competitive rotations. The only old cards that might still have any value are 1st edition Charizard and any famous error cards.

You might be able to use the cards other ways, such as making a decorative collage or framing them and hang on a wall. I've always wanted to do something with the 5 million commons I have from collecting. XD

Holy crap that's alot of cards!!!
Yeah, since I may not be able to actually sell them, I was trying to think of other uses for them. I know someone said something of making a dress and I've seen a few pictures of someone who had made some really awesome Japanese armor out of them. I dunno exactly how much money I'm willing to spend on having to buy worthless cards to do something on that scale, but it sure was interesting!

You could always ask for donations of cards...I am sure there are plenty of people here who don't really expect to make much use out of the cards they have from the good ol' days.

You might be able to make totes/bags too, like some people do with old Capri sun packages...I love those kinds of purses!

Yeah, the CARD DRESS it's actually turned into a whole masquerade design now...

It's going to take THOUSANDS, though I'm not being picky - I've got about 1500 between all the different kind of collectable cards I've had over the years, and I'm hitting up everyone I know for their old collections, and then it'll be on to ebay to relieve people of their unwanted old collections on the cheap... yeah, massive project.

On a smaller scale, though, type 'playing card art' into google images. There's one artist who's name escapes me who does really cool optical illusion things with them, and it's the same basic principle.

XD Yeah! I started to look up neat things to do with them although I think I might just find someone who likes Pokemon and give them my cards.

Talking Pokemon Card Question?

Okay, for those of you that collected and remember the old Pokemon cards, as in the Neo Genesis and what not, I've got a question for those who remembers this. Is the Neo Genesis and Neo Revolation packs together considered the Season 2 Pokemon set? In terms of Season 2, I mean, Pichu, Togepi, Houndour, Heracross, Umbreon, Esbeon, etc. Way before today's Pokemon was ever thought of.

I'm asking is because I only have half of the Second Season of the Pokemon cards and I would like to get them all before they totally disappear off the face of the earth. I'm not into Pokemon like I use to be, but I adore old school anime and this would totally awsome if I can collect all of the Second Season Pokemon cards. Not right at this moment, but when I go to garage/yard sales and manage to find them for an awsome price.

Thanks

All these sets are considered as the 2nd generation: http://serebii.net/card/neo.shtml
I hope that helped.
