> tfw when collection pokemon cards in 1998 was best time of your life.
holy shit, you released a flood of memories upon my brain. i am sitting here, remembering how easy everything was 13-14 years ago... the smell of a freshly opened boosterpack. thanks man.
I remember I traded a Dragonite with this kid for a Venasaur, Charizard and Alakazam.
He had almost every card from that first generation but couldn't get a Dragonite he had shit loads of cards to.
This reminds me of the first pack of pokemon cards I ever bought. I was visiting St. Augustine, Florida where I found a booster just like this one. I bought two. First one had a Muk and the next had a Dragonite. I became addicted that day and I would be for years to come.
i remeber my first time opening one of these, summer of 2000. just had started school, grandma gave me some cash.
i collected pokemon and yugioh cards for years, but not one pack ever made so much of an impression.
>only boosters out are base, jungle and fossil
>dad is really into the cards and sells them on weekends
>he gives his friend from work a chunk of money and tells her to bring back a box of japanese boosters
>unopened box of japanese fossil booster packs
>dad lets me, brother and himself open one pack
>the rest are to be sold for profit
>dad opens his
>brother opens his
>he's younger and cries because he wants a mew
>dad lets him open another one
i'll never win the lottery in my life because I used up all my luck that day. still have the mew in my binder.
>collected the cards
>never played THE GAME
