Some of you may remember me from my commissions, I did pendants and coasters a while back. On that note I hope everyone received theirs in good order. I haven't received confirmation from everyone but if I don't hear anything I assume it's okay!
So my collection, I PROMISE an update but I have to reorganise my binder because during summer alot of new additions were made but I haven't had time to sort them all out! I'm really excited to show my collection because I believe I have nearly all of the eevee and its evolutions TCG save the ones that recently came out during the promotion.
I wanted to share some thoughts and maybe get some advice. You know I was really set on all these vees cards and everytime new ones came out I needed them asap. But for some reason, not now. I don't know why, maybe I'm losing my touch but I don't really want these cards. I don't like how they look and I don't want to pay $50+ for 9 cards that I don't really like but only want to buy because I feel I should for my collection. Anyone know this feeling?
It made me think, why did I start collecting again? (I say 'again' because I experienced a pause between my childhood and where I'm at now, which is 23 years old)
And now I realise it's those childhood feelings that are a big part of why I collect. It's the first generations, the first trading cards, the hasbro toys, the cruddy gameboy games which are special in my eyes. I still think Pokemon is cool, I draw them all the time, still play the games so like everyone me too I'm hopping up and down for the next gen, though only for the game.
So now on my collection, I'm thinking of stopping collecting the vees TCG at were I'm now. Trying to complete them up untill what I had and then maybe move towards completing base and jungle, I've been contemplating that for a while.
Any thoughts on this? Have you experienced similar feelings? And what did you do?
I don't want to stop collecting, maybe just from a different perspective? The vees I've collected are still dear to me and for now I could not part with the collection I have but I feel it's complete enough. (save for the few I'm still missing)
Sorry for the wall of text, I can put it under the cut if neccesary :)
Thanks for listening/reading!
Finally, to make this post a little less boring, I do need these cards:
vaporeon missing logo error
jolteon missing logo error
flareon missing logo error
(all without jungle logo like the jolteon card in this image)
Umbreon 10/90 reverse holo
vaporeon POP 3 meiji promo card
(looks the same as the regular POP except that it's Japanese and has the meiji logo in the bottom right corner)
I think that's it!
