For The Love Of God Stop Throwing Out Your Kids’ ‘Pokémon’ And ‘Magic: The Gathering Cards’

Even less rare original Pokémon cards like Chancey and Venosaur are still selling for fifty to a hundred dollars. Which adds up when you parse through the sometimes thousands of cards in many old school collections. Oh you don’t have an old school collection? Because your dad said “I need this room for my office, I donated your stuff to a church.” What do you need an office for dad, you’re retired.

So soothing, until you realize it’s gone forever.

Magic: The Gathering card collections have had even more time to get tossed or lost in the shuffle. The game came out in 1993 and if you happened to be a big enough dork lucky enough to buy a pack of Alpha cards, you better pray that your parents left your sh*t alone. Many cards in the set, especially the “power nine”, now sell for thousands of dollars. Even the basic lands from the set go for about one hundred bucks a pop. If you had a Black Lotus that got chucked? You missed out on selling a card that sold for over 500,000 dollars. Ok, time for us to go stare into space and think about what might have been if our parents hadn’t ruined our lives.
