Hello, a want, and advice!

Hello, everybody! My name is Caitlin, and I'm a budding collecter looking to expand her collection. I mainly (and casually) collect Pokemon Cards (I have about 4000-5000), but I'm looking to start dishing out a bit more money to collect some of my high wants. Some of my most favorite Pokemon include Zapdos, Lugia, Celebi, Altaria, Drapion, Empoleon, and Cofagrigus, although I like many more. My most favorite game is currently BW/BW2, along with SS. My most favorite character is Colress.

I also have three plushies and a poster or two, but I don't really think that counts :P There are some pictures under the cut (I'll update with them), because I heard that you guys love pictures. I'll also try and collect some of my favorites out of my collection.

Here is a quick, grainy picture of what I have in my room right now. Not shown (somewhere in storage) are two binders and four more tins. I'll take a look for them if I have the time. Also, I'll get a better camera, I promise ;)


Anyway, the main purpose of this post is asking for a want and some advice. Basically, I'm a big fan of Colress/Akuroma, and I'm looking to purchase his Japanese FA card. So, first question - do any of you happen to have an extra floating around? I'd be willing to pay a pretty penny for it. I also wouldn't mind trading along with a payment, although we would have to do that via PM as I don't have sales permission yet.

While I'm at it, how does one price cards? I'm at a total loss, haha.

Look at this gorgeous man (and card)

I also took a look over at some other sites (such as Ebay, et cetera), but they are all going for over $45. My question is this - if there are none floating about, would it be worth paying the $45+, or should I just go for a booster box for $10 extra? Granted, that means I'm not necessarily guaranteed Colress, but then I could possibly auction off (not here, of course) the cards I get to raise money to go and buy the actual card. And then I would have the added bonus of having whatever's left over from the auctions. But I suppose that all depends on the contents of the box.

Anyway, I greatly appreciate any help at all, and I'm exited to start becoming part of this community! :)
