A few years later that collection had grown to include 11 full sets. And also included some interesting bits and pieces from around the world such as Chinese and French cards, promotional cards, special collections folders and more. Now, 20 years later, that store owner came across a box containing that collection which has been at the back of a dark cupboard for all this time, meaning the cards are still in the same condition they were when first placed into the multiple plastic sleeves to protect them; no damge, no light fading, no problems whatsoever! Now, because I'm older and have had to grow up and be responsible for all kinds of boring day job sorts of things, I can't really remember whether any of these have any rarity value.
I do know there's a really nice number of Stage 1 and Stage 2 cards in this collection, which I believe means they're first and second edition if I remember right. There could be shadowless, misprints etc but I'm not even really sure how I'd know this now. The link to the photo album is. Where you can take a look at every single card and check out the condition, rarity and editions for yourself. There are 178 photos, most of which show a full sheet of 9 Pokemon cards totalling over 1350 different cards and including a second edition Shiny Charizard and Blastoise!
Unfortunately I can't figure out how to get the album to show in the right order so it runs back to front starting with the 20 uncut sheets of Burger King cards from 1999 (which I have 2 mint condition sets of) and ends with the first card from base set 1. As the pictures show, this lot also included Pokemon binders and card albums, spare sleeves and Ancient Mew which was a giveaway with Pokemon the Movie on VHS Yes, it was THAT long ago!
