For example, when Pokemon became popular, my age was in the single digits and loved collecting the cards! Trading with the neighbor kids, opening a booster and finding that elusive Charizard card. My dad was more excited than I was that xmas. Anyway, my first would have been this Charmander card right here :] Still have it to this day, 12 or so years later.
Some minor imperfections. Like the creased corner, ripped bottom and the obvious hand drawn extras.
So, what did you have? ^^
(I had an old Jolteon Tomy back then too. I used to chew on his face...om nom nom)
