How to Buy and Sell Pokémon Cards Online


Pokemon's roots are deeply rooted in video games and anime and have been around for a long time, enough to make it an icon of pop culture. The Pokemon trading card game is one of the branches of its popularity. Even after nearly two decades of use in the collectible card game scene, it is still alive and can be played. Here’s an article to know the best pokemon card makers.

Pokemon TCG is an excellent way to put on a sports cap and compete with friends for fans of the series. Even people who are only familiar with Pokemon or even those who know almost nothing about franchising can enjoy the strategic gameplay of Pokemon TCG.

There are three card representations in Pokemon TCG. Players must make full use of them to gain an advantage in battle.

Pokemon card

Pokemon cards are the most important cards for players. Players believe that Pokemon will build a massive synergy between each other in the deck. You can use up to four Pokemon cards with the same name on the deck.

Coach card

The training card supports the player through various effects that will benefit the player or hurt the opponent. Like Pokemon cards, You can use up to four Trainer cards in the deck.

Energy Card

An energy card is an energy card that drives the player's Pokemon action. Players can attach an energy card to their Pokemon each round and choose which energy card to link to Pokemon. This is one of the most significant decisions in the game.

There are 11 energy types in Pokemon TCG, fire, water, lightning, grass, psychic, fighting, dark, metal, fairy, dragon, and colorless. There are also basic energy cards and unique energy cards, which have a different role in attaching Pokemon's energy.


Selling your cards


1. Sell personal cards

You can sort cards by set. The most accurate seller will know which deck their card belongs to, so buyers know exactly which deck they want to buy. The suit is identified by a small symbol located in the lower right corner of the "Pokemon" illustration (old suit) or the lower right corner of the entire card (new case).To understand which symbols represent which suits, look for "Pokemon" on eBay and match the illustration to the one you see-the suit should be listed.

You can sort them numerically. Use the numbers in the lower right corner of the card (all sets).

There should be two numbers: one representing the actual card number, one slash (/), and one representing the number of cards in the entire group (i.e., Charizard with 5/102 is the fifth of 102 cards). The following are some exceptions: The basic package card is one of the first three products issued in the United States, and there is no symbol on the card. They are the only people like this. And Promos, only one number represents the card number (for example, Ivy Pikachu is the first number in the first Black Star Promos series).

Place all cards in a protective soft sleeve (also called "bamboo penny sleeve"). This will protect them from UV rays.

After putting them in the sleeve, it is best to put them in a "top loader" (a hard-plastic box to prevent bending) or a 9-pocket card sleeve in a binder. You can also use Ultra Pro card holder protective covers in red, blue, green, etc. They are unbelievably cheap. Use plastic adhesive and liners for easy storage. You can purchase all of these things at Wal-Mart or Card Store. The best brands are Ultra-Pro or Dragon Shield.

Please list all the cards you own (again, by their settings). You will notice that some cards have stars in the lower right corner, some have diamonds, and some have circles.

After organizing the cards by numbers, you will see the stars first, then diamonds, and finally, circles. Then you will see the Trainer, and the cycle repeats. If there are any rare secret items, you will have a Pokémon at the end of the set with stars on it. If not, that is great. Stars indicate that Pokémon are rare, diamonds indicate rarely, and circles indicate common. Of course, the price of rare cards is much higher than other cards.

The price of the card is constantly fluctuating. To save you money on a guide that may be inaccurate, look up the complete list of cards to sell on eBay! In most cases, the cards' selling price is higher than the price listed in the magazine, although sometimes their selling price is lower. The only way is to look at the actual buyers.

Also, set the description page. This is how you attract people to buy. Please carefully list its collection, number (i.e., "This card comes from Dragon Frontiers, it is x/104"), rarity (rare, rare, common, secret rare, etc.), and conditions (mint, close to mint, fair, Played, very bad, etc.).

Of course, be sure to tell them whether the card is bent or scratched. If it is bent or scratched, it will damage its value, but the price will drop several times. Cents are better than getting bad feedback and losing buyers. List them on eBay or other well-known sales sites. Most of them make truly little money, so using them is cheap! If you want to sell them in real life, then you can do the same!


2. Sell ​​Collection

Divide the cards into four piles: Pokémon, Trainer, Energy, and Miscellaneous.

Categorize your Pokémon into various types of piles, for example, Pikachu, Ratata. Then, the Trainer is divided into each type, such as a switch, potion.

Then, Classify energy into a pile, for example, lightning, grass. Count the cards in a pile. Write the number of cards on the post-it notes and paste one on each pile of cards.

Now, Figure out the personal cost of each card. To do this, search for a website with a pricing guide for your card. You can also search for the current transaction value of the card on eBay. These columns should include card name, quantity, individual value, and total value (a number multiplied by individual value). You may need to do this in Excel or a similar spreadsheet program. Then, Find out the total value of your Pokémon card collection. To do this, get the total at the bottom of the quantity and total cost columns. Use eBay or similar sites for sales. You can do this by packaging a complete set of products, selling individual cards, or dividing them into ten packs. Or you can sell it to someone in your area. Check with your brother/sister's friends because your "trash" can become their "special wealth."

Buying your cards

There is a lot of places, the most common places where you find them:

Local game/manga shops-most local games and comic shops carry game cards. These types of places usually have many comics, board games, card games, dice, etc. This is my favorite place to buy because many of these stores also have league knights and Pokémon tournaments, with which you can interact with the local Pokémon community. They can usually choose a variety of single cards. I like to support these stores so that I can play with other local coaches.

Big box retail store. Wal-Mart and Target often have sports card/game card sections next to the cash register. This option is not my favorite because the box is usually 20 cents higher than the local card store. Moreover, they have no singles.

Online/Internet. Amazon and eBay can provide almost anything you want, including Pokemon singles. Blowout cards are another place where you can buy boxes at discounted prices. Many other websites can also sell them.
