It's not very often I get excited about a TCG card. Ever.
Yes, I love beautiful art, but for me, it became tiresome to collect every card of a single pokemon, even if I really like it, not to mention expensive. ^_^; I'll admit, the most I've spent on a card was $24, and that was for an Espeon star (which I have misplaced.)
The first card I was completely stoked about, was Steven's Advice
. I have over 20 of the card, including two reverse holos, and I'm always trying to get more of his card. XD (I bought eleven booster packs of Hidden Legends trying to get one, and whereas I did complete the Regi trio of EXs and several other good cards, I didn't get ONE SINGLE STEVEN'S ADVICE.) Later on, I found out I was stupid and could have easily gotten two of the card from a pre-constructed deck.
But anyway, my point of this post.I WANT THIS CARD LIKE BURNING
. You just don't know (unless you saw me in the chat yesterday when sui_kune
linked it to me.)
Steven and Cynthia are my top two favourite human pokemon characters (though I also like Nurse Joy, Domino and Cheryl); not only that, the card art is GORGEOUS. (Srsly, I'm obsessed. My husband cosplays as Steven, and I'm working on a Cynthia costume. XP)
So you can bet I'll be wanting an army of Cynthia cards.
I know this set hasn't been released yet, but when it has, I'm sure some of you will be buying booster packs.
I'm wanting at least one reverse holo and a few plain cards. So, if you pull any that you don't want or wouldn't mind selling, please, please please
Also, an unrelated question: Do you ever keep doubles of certain items in your collection?
I know it can be expensive, but there have been times I've wanted to use a keychain or something like that, but I hesitate because I worry something 'bad' will happen to it. XD;
