This was part of my childhood dream collection and now it's ready to pass on to a new owner. I had four sets, I posted two on here and each was gone within 48 hours!! These just don't exist out in the "wild" and continue to increase in value. Every card here is OUT OF PRINT and becomes more scarce and hard to find each month that goes by with thousands of middle aged collectors reentering the hobby.
Owning a Complete vintage Gen 1 set should be a goal of every collector. Search Justin Bieber pokemon collection and you'll see this exact same collection on his wall. PLEASE NOTE: I've seen a couple of these types of sets available online but none of them have all original vintage cards from the first few sets. Some people will replace the old valuable and expensive vintage holos with modern holos that are only worth a couple of dollars. Rest assured, these are all original Wizards of the Coast, 100% Authentic, and Vintage guaranteed.Some cards are in great shape and others have seen some play (includes edge wear and some creases/scratches, including backs of cards). Please see the pictures and use the zoom for an overall condition. Please feel free to shoot me a message if you need additional information.
Please feel free to clarify or ask questions prior to purchasing. GEN 1 - Refers to the first 151 pokemon in the Pokemon Index. It includes all the original Pokemon that came out in the original game boy game (including Mew). While these Pokemon have been reprinted in modern sets for example, you will find Charizard (a Gen 1 Pokemon), these other Charizards look different and are not from the Wizards of the Coast Era and are not vintage.
A generation 1 set of Pokemon must contain cards from multiple "expansions/sets" because there is no one set with all Gen 1 Pokemon. Therefore, this set has cards from sets like the Original Base Set, Base 2, Jungle, Fossil, Team Rocket, etc. To sum it up, these are the Vintage cards that 90s kids collected. They are not modern (less expensive cards).
These are Holy Grail cards of the hobby! This item is in the category "Toys & Hobbies\Collectible Card Games\CCG Sets".
