    so I'm going through all the crap I have in the attic, and realize that I have a whole lot of Pokemon stuff...I was really into it back when it first hit the USA back in the day..but now, I could care less.

    my question is, are any of the original 100 cards/figures/talking figures worth anything? I'm hoping that they'll be worth something in the future, but you never know, I could be wrong. I mean I have a whole bunch of Card decks/booster packs or whatever they call them, like six or so talking 4" figures, possibly more, and many little figures that came with a little pokeball, and some things like that...


    I can't believe that I bought this stuff honestly...but oh well, I was a kid, what can I expect..

    Yeah man, I spent so much money on those stupid cards. I wish I bought some toys instead , honestly. I think the cards are worth little to nothing now, unless it's Charizard. :lol  I'm not sure about the figures though.

    Yep, looking back on how much I spent on the cards upsets me.

    I sold my card set on eBay a while back for a pretty significant amount. I think you could get something for that stuff if you auctioned it off.

    Ugh, Pokemon cards...

    The little Tomy figures that came with the Pokeballs in the two-packs, or the Game Boys in the three-packs, actually have some demand. Heck, I even couldn't part with all of my old ones.

    Those talking figures have got to be worth something between diddly and squat.

    Wow, I had a whole book of Pokemon cards when I was younger. I had no idea how to play the game, though. Nobody I knew did. We were too busy playing with Beyblade tops.

    Actually, the official cards and the game have changed, original cards are tourney-illegal, and pretty much useless. You would probably only make profit off a collector. Which I imagine there are quite a few of.

    The toys however, i know some people would pay quite handsomely for.

    I have the original charizard card. Wonder how much that will go for.

    I also have an old charzard figure with 2 launching flames.

    I got back into pokemon card collecting last year with D/P, but my interest has once again faded. But I still take out my deck every once in awhile and battle my brother, whom I ussually lose to.

    Well if it is the first edition Base set Charizard that would fetch you a significat sum. But that is extremely rare ( it has a small black 1 on the right side by the image. )

    so many years selling pokemon cards for a guy woking in his store, i am damadgd beyond repair.

    Fun Fact: There is some really really rare Pikachu card that exsist in bronz ( 3 diffrent) they are like valued to 20K Well atleast that was what Pokemon Beckett valued them about 8 years ago,

    • Pokemon Card Games Blue-2 Person Starter Kit , Yellow-Zap, Green-Power Reserve

    those are the decks that I still have the box for, I have some more, but I haven't bothered to look at it mainly because I know that it's pokemon in there and don't really care which is which - doesn't have a purpose in my inventory

    and the little talking ones freaked me out last night, I was sleeping and I guess I moved my foot or something and they were on...all I heard was a whole bunch of sounds and saw some movements...took me a whole minute just to realize what it was ;-/
