In my last post I mentioned that during my visit to Prague I bought a mystery box with Pokémon collectible cards. It was a relatively small and quite cheap box (about 25 USD). This small box full of surprises contained a total of 10 home-made booster packs, one older promo card, one V card (Zacian V from the Celebrations...

About a week ago I had some obligations in Prague. I took advantage of it and visited my favourite board game shop in the very centre of the capital. This shop specializes in mainly Magic The Gathering cards. However, you can also get Pokémon cards here and at very affordable prices. Probably the cheapest in the Czech Republic.

Even though it's the season when the Brilliant Stars edition Pokémon reign supreme, I decided to purchase an older product from the Shining Fates edition. I bought a small tin box - a Pokémon Shining Fates Mini Tin featuring Manapha and Shiny Inteleon.

On February 25, 2022, a new edition of Brilliant Stars Pokémon collectible cards from the Sword and Shield series was released. Of course, I had to buy some to satisfy my collecting passion. This time I bought the entire 36-pack booster box for about $145, plus 10 individual booster packs. I put the booster box aside as an investment....

Last week I bought 10 booster packs from SWSH Fusion Strike edition in one of my favorite eshop. I actually bought a lot more packs, but I'll write about that again next time. I wanted to see if I would get lucky and pull out a rare card when I unwrapped it. By the way, those ten booster packs cost me about $45....

I've been around the Pokémon world for over a month now. As I'm a new Pokémon card collector, I'm trying to delve a little deeper into this very interesting subject. Whenever I have a spare moment, I surf the internet looking for interesting Pokémon sites. I never thought collecting cards could be so fascinating.

I'm still going through the pile of about 100 Pokémon cards I got from my older son and sorting them into individual sets. In filing these cards into my collection, I occasionally come across a card that I somehow suspect might be a fake. So far I have come across about 5 suspicious Pokémon cards. And it's quite possible...

Once I had sorted the Pokémon cards I got from my older son, I needed to store them somewhere. All I had was a small album. There was no way that was going to be enough. I decided to look online for some albums for collectible cards. I visited several eshops and finally picked up a nice black UltraPro album for 360 cards at one eshop....

After getting at least a little bit of exposure to the world of Pokémon collectible cards, I finally wanted to own some. At least a few. Of the more than 13 000 Pokémon cards released to date, I didn't own a single one. But fortune smiled on me. My older son found out that I had set up MyPokemons.com...

Before I start physically collecting Pokémon cards, I'd like to see how many cards with these pocket monsters have already been released. I think there might be a couple thousand. I made a spreadsheet in excel and started searching the internet.

It's January 2022 and instead of making some New Year's resolutions, I decided to start collecting Pokémon cards. Do you think I'm crazy? Maybe I am. The fact is, I've been pretty bored lately. It's cold and snowy outside and there's nothing to do in the garden. I've been toying with the idea of collecting something again and having fun with it....
