WTB Towel + New Display, Sales Update

Hey all, I have another tiny sales update - some gen II metal pins that I forgot to add last week. They're in great condition and looking fo new homes! Check it out here.
Please be patient with me on responding and shipping. I will get back to you! I'm working fulltime this week with a really weird schedule so I just might be a little slow.

I'm also looking a 10x10 (give or take) towel. I already have one of the M08 ones below, but I'm expanding my display and have more space to cover! The two below are what I have in mind specifically, but please go ahead and show me any towels you may have - All I want is for it to look good with my M08 one.

edit: So I just bought myself the Lati one on Y!J, but I'm still open to other towels you may have cause I was hoping to get something sooner! :)

And one more question - I'd like to get some toploaders big enough to fit star pokedoll tags and my DX Weavile's tag. What size do you all use and where do you get them? I know i'm being a bit lazy here; I browsed on Amazon for a bit but only saw 3 x 5 and 5 x 8 (which sounds too big).

What to do with my card collection?

When Diamond and Pearl came out, I got the idea of making a full Pokédex made of just trading cards. I got a different card for every Pokémon, including alternate forms. I almost completed this task, with only a few Unown forms and a dozen of D/P Pokémon I couldn't get cheap cards for.

With Black and white though, I got really overwhelmed with other collections, and set this project aside. So, I don't really have any cards from the 5th and 6th generation (or rather, I have a few lying around that I got as freebies or if I randomly bought booster packs, but I never organized them and I really don't think I have that many anyway).

While I think this collection looks really nice, I am not really interested in keeping it and continuing it anymore. There's only a few cards in the whole folder I'd like to keep, while everything else I wouldn't mind to try and sell. I also have more boxes of random cards that couldn't fit the folder (I often got these in bulk for cheap or in trades).

So now my question is... what do you suggest I do with these cards? Take out the ones I like or that I am attached to, and sell the rest in bulk, as well as the other hundred cards I have around? Or try to complete it? I don't really know if I could even get any much money from these cards, as they're from varying rarities and conditions, and most of them are NOT mint. The most expensive card (the shiny Charizard) I'd keep for myself, in case you're wondering.

Here's pictures of the whole collection:

Looking for FCS Pikachu (and other clear figures!)

Hey PKMNcollectors! It's been quite a long time since I've posted here - I had to take a bit of a hiatus to finish schooling, and tumblr also took a bite out of my life, but I've returned now and am hoping to start collecting again! I'm typing this on mobile and it's skewing my judgement of whether it will need a cut or not, but I'll add one for now just in case.

Currently, I'm looking to replace my clear Full Color Stadium Attack(?) Pikachu. I kept him in my pencil case and used him as a little pen topper (silly, I know), and in a flurry of terrible forgetfulness, left both him and my pencils on a train.
EDIT: found and purchased a replacement! Thanks guys, I'm super glad to get this little guy back.

(Photo not mine, but the same electric mouse)

Since I travel a lot, I can't take most of my collection with me where ever I go, but smaller figures like this are really nice to have - just little things to pick up and mess with while I'm figuring out what to draw.  I really love anything clear or frosted plastic, it's an aesthetic I'm a sucker for. If you have this little pika oranything similar (other FCS figures for sure!) pease let me know! As far as I'm concerned he's just as important as my pencils and pens.

Back in the day I used to collect Giratina and Arceus figures (okay, I still do!), but I'll make a seperate post for that at a later date. Thanks for reading, and it's good to be back!

Interesting Get

So the other day i was surfing the net looking for a good New era fitted when i came across this at hat club. my dream at last came true! a fitted Ash Ketchum hat! I took a picture comparing it to my childhood Ash Hat that i Had since i was very little. Truly awesome and hope they release more hats that are similar Pokemon style NE fitteds. I found it by mistake and bought it with out hesitating.

Guides, guides and I need a TFG guide!

While getting out my old pokemon collection to display I found some of my Collapse ), there's a direct link between when I stopped buying game guides and when I got the internet :p

Now a request, I was after some help with the pokemon TFG, I know there was the first set, I remember seeing them in a few shops and am now kicking myself that I never bought some, there's also groundbreakers which I gather is super rare (Dying to get my hands on the Venusaur) and there's also an unamed third set? I'm basically after info on what the sets consist of with pictures, how to tell if what's on ebay is fake or legit (I heard the third set on ebay is mostly bootlegs, don't know if that's actually true or not?), if anyone could help or point me in the direction of accurate info I would be extremely grateful!
