Miss Courtney began her love affair with Pokémon when she saw a picture of Pikachu in a Nintendo magazine and started collecting even though she had no idea what the characters were.

I still have tons of them cards up in a folder somewhere from when I used to collect them. I expect they might be worth something some day. :cln:

I could swear those cards had a unique ability to simply vanish into thin air; I had a pile of several hundred that went missing one day. :pi:

I have to agree with this actually. I had ALOT of these cards and one day they just disappeared :confused:

That's probably like, what ~$50,000 if not [and probably quite a bit] more on Pokemon crap? That could have easily paid for the higher education she needs to become a Japanese teacher.

But whatever makes her happy I guess. :pi: I'd sell it all to a museum or something...

That shiny Charizard card was the first Pokemon card I laid eyes on. From that day onwards, I vowed to get me one of those cards.

And I did.
