I didn't learn to play until I was 27/28 because I didn't have anyone to play with growing up. We lived out in the country, away from the towns/city. I haven't played in a few years. I just really like collecting them. lol

Check out tcgplayer.com or try your local video game store, comic books shop, or flea market. A lot of gen 1 cards are super cheap. It's never too late to start collecting them. :)

When you've reached the point after moving that you can start properly going through non-essential boxes... and suddenly realize you might be a bit of a hoarder... Where do I even begin with all these cards?! How do you guys organize and store your Pokémon cards? :)

I have mine sorted by type, then alphabetically within each type. It was working for me until I realized how many cards I've collected in the 22 years Pokemon cards have been a thing. Now I'm trying to work out a more efficient system. Thank you, I appreciate your feedback. :)

I have mine sorted into alphabetical order. It's the easiest I can manage them, but I don't have nearly as many as you.

I'm going to be taking a short break again, friends. I'm driving to Florida today to spend a long weekend with a couple of my sisters. I'll get right back to updating my collections on Tuesday! Hope you all have an amazing weekend! :)

Now that I'm (mostly) moved into my house and have (a bit more) free time, I decided to finish emptying my storage unit. Looks like I'll have a lot to sort and upload! I forgot how many comic books I've collected since I was a kid. 😅

I'm back, folks! Sorry for being gone so long. Everything took longer than anticipated, but we got a lot accomplished. Thank you to the wonderful people at Gemr for checking up on us. I'm happy and glad to find the BEST online community here at Gemr. You're all fantastic!!! I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has been up to while I was away, and I'm excited to get back to updating my collections. Thanks for sticking with me, guys! :)

I'm going to be taking a small break from Gemr for about a week, as we have some storm damage at home that needs attention. I'll try to respond to messages and comments in a timely manner, but I won't be updating my collections for a bit. I'll be back ASAP!
