    when i was nine going on ten, my older brother was moving out and left me his entire collection of pokemon cards. he was a super avid collector and had the original first packs from japan in mint condition as well as hundreds and hundreds of super rare US pokemon cards all in perfect condition- wrapped individually in plastic and placed into binders that were all organized by rarity.
    What did I do with these cards?
    I immediately took them all out of their protection cases + binders.... and taped them all.... to my door...
    I wanted to impress my two entire friends I guess??? so when they'd come over they'd see pokemon cards covering both sides of my door?? even tho one of these friends didnt even like pokemon??? after filling up my door, i still had so many binders of cards that i'd end up hanging them all over my room. I moved them around and re-taped them on the door so many times that they began to fall apart. due to this, my dad would then go on to throw them all out.
    i basically destroyed my family's future fortune in one day. i cannot tell u how many mint condition cards he had that are considered super rare and valuable. he had hundreds and kept them perfectly and i turned them into a pile of trash sent off to a landfill.
    don't give ur valuables to nine year olds

    I remember the day that my little brother came home in TEARS because our elementary school had banned Pokémon cards. There had apparently been a physical fight over a Charizard and the principal had decided that it had gone too far. It was a dark day.

      @Polaris the Dragon Thank you so much! The pride flag in my pfp is the nebulesbian flag. It’s a lesbian sexual/romantic orientation that is specific to neurodivergent people. Basically, I know I’m a lesbian, but my intrusive thoughts due to my OCD and ADHD can be about anyone regardless, so sometimes it’s hard to discern which is which. Thank you for asking!

    My parents threw out my fairly extensive collection of pokemon cards from the late 90s/early 2000s about 8 years ago when they moved house. And it hurts me, so freaking much. I could have had some pretty serious money in that collection. My partner spent bitcoin on pizza in like 2010 though, so we commiserate together.

    I'm japanese and my older brother was into actually playing pokemon cards and wanted to make me play him for practice, without telling me how to play and obviously i had no idea. So he'd line his cards up the correct way and i'd just line mine up in a straight line, with my favorites being in front and the ones i liked less in the back. My bro flipped out on me for not playing properly and i bent a few of his cards in retailation. It ended in a crying match and we both got sent to our rooms by our mom. Good times.

    I remember home-room in 4th grade when the kids who traded cards would all wait until the teacher stepped out of the room for something, and instantly maybe 6 or 7 extra large 3-ring binders would come flying out of backpacks and slam onto desks, everyone else pulling out what they had to trade from their pockets or card cases. They were so efficient at not getting caught that the teacher could have stepped right outside, and they had 3 or 4 kids in the room that acted as the lookouts at all times, and everyone else would ninja their way across the room to nab trades really quickly. Like, _almost the entire class._
    And then one day our teacher caught us, and instead of busting us she revealed she was a fan too and brought us over to her desk to show us the Evee card she had taped on her monitor, since it was her favorite one because of the many evolutions. Mrs. Peters from Foothills elementary, one of the kindest and most gentle teachers I ever had in my entire scholastic career.

    I really appreciated the things you said about having a collection of something: I recently started collecting crystals (and when I was a child I always brought home little rocks I found cute or particular) and my mother always mocked me for that and said I'm childish. Also, it was a nice video, I'm sorry you didn't get the gold card tho

    My dad collected a lot of different trading cards between the 1980s through the early 2000s. I asked him if he had any pokemon cards, and he said he thought a relative gave him a bunch of "weird cards." And when I finally found the box, I was amazed to see...a box of disney trading cards.

    I collected since 99 when I was in Jr high until I trailed off and got into Magic the gathering in my more "grown up" high school years. Had to dig them out to make sure they still were safe when I saw prices go insane. Found and changed out old crusty binder pages and all new protectors, and that's it. I'm broke but I wouldn't sell any of the full sets of everything I have. Maybe when it's in the millions I'd consider parting with my childhood, until then I'll just keep them along with all my magic cards I refused to sell, lol. Some day being an outcast nerd in school will pay off though! Probably for the lucky bastard who inherits my crap though. lol

    This makes me kick myself in the ass harder and harder every year. I had an amazing stash of first editions from when i was a kid, i started collecting right when they came out, and Every pick i ever had went straight from the pack and into a card sleeve, I had 5 1st edition charizards, 12 1st edition blastoise, 7 1st edition venusaurs, the list goes on and on, same for when fossils came out i had 1st editions from that, i had a pre-release aerodactyl, and like 200+ other near mint 1st edition holo's from 98-00 or 99-01 w/e the years were. and..... heres the tragedy. my younger brother, he and I lived separately our entire lives and we are 14 yrs apart. well by the time he was like 11, i was 26 and i still had all my cards, still mint, they were just stored away. He was super into pokemon, and I felt really bad that we were away from eachother and I wanted to give him something cool as a keepsake that he could hold onto (from his big brother). granted these cards hadnt jumped thru the roof in price yet, they seemed like they werent going to. So I gave him the entire set. (well doesn't he still have them?) No. He said he took them all out of their sleeves and they were all eventually lost/destroyed/messed up cause he was "a young dumb kid so he didnt take care of them." Several tens of thousands of dollars thrown in the garbage. Sorry to make such a novel of this, but if it happened to you, youd feel like a fucking idiot and write a book about it too. So much money lost.

    When i was in grade school, my dad bought me packs of Pokemon cards. I wasn't a huge fan of the show and I didn't play any of the games but I liked collecting them because they looked cute. I threw them all away when I got older, maybe I should've sold them - I had the ones with the hologram thingy as well.

      most beanie babies are worth absolutely nothing. There was a whole scandal about how the makers were attempting to artificially inflate the value through collectors guides and hype, calling them an investment etc, all the while MASS producing them.

    Wow. When you said that the first two seasons of Digimon were one of the best children TV series of all time. Man, that connected with me.
    These seasons are so important to me.

    Kurtis. Great video just started watching. I'm glad you are a digimon enthusiast also. There is a new digimon card game out now and its acctually a lot of fun to play. Also they rebooted the old show in 2020. Check it out. It's really good.!

    As someone also born in 1994, I agree that Digimom is by far the superior cartoon. It's pretty clear as an adult that Pokémon is more aimed at a kindergarten/young elementary age group with formulaic episodes and little overall plot/character development while Digimon is aimed at a slightly older audience. However I do think the Pokémon characters have cuter designs than the Digimon.

    All I got to say is when you started talking about digimon that definitely brought back memories. Digimon was the shit. We had digvices we could connect with magnets to battle and train. Like plus max and his harmonica got me into playing instruments. Definitely a childhood memory I'll never forget

    dang, this video gives me so much nostalgia. Me and my brother are mid 2000's kids (me 14 and him 16) and we grew up with pokemon, beyblade, we both had the original DS and an original WII console and all the original games (wii sports, mario cart, smash bros brawl, super mario galaxy, etc) and i flipping loved it. I miss those days where I would play pokemon on my DS literaly 24/7.

I think you might like those. They were super cool!! They had different pictures from the seires. You can get them preatty cheap. If you ever buy them I'd love to see a video of it :D Yourock Kurtis!

    Ugh, I know everyone had a collection they beat themselves up for for not keeping, myself included, but I actually kept a deck container filled with my favorite rare cards including a Charizard and Shining Gyarados with the intention of keeping it forever. Eventually it must have just gotten lost in one of my moves and I don't know if its worse I set aside cards I knew would be valuable (even though they'd probably be 7s) and lost them anyway.

    This was such a sweet video. While I was just out of the age group for really getting into pokemon/digimon (I was a Magic The Gathering nerd), I totally relate to the nostalgia and excitement. My previous boyfriend was a bit younger and introduced me to pokemon, love the games now and the first couple of seasons of the TV show were way better than I expected. Can totally relate to tearing up over a moment from a kids TV show. Totally with you on the love and human nature of collecting things.

    of them have a great one for me. Its not about the money: true.
