    When I collected cards, I collected them primarily to admire the different kinds of amazing artwork. My favorite artist was Naoyo Kimura. So I was wondering, does anyone else have a favorite TCG artist? Or perhaps a least favorite?

    (Note: The artist of a card always says somewhere on it in small letters!)

    I hate the ones with the 3D models. They look disgusting.
    I was trying to post an image of the original set Starmie card which has made me not like Starmie that much since as long as I was a kid, but my dumb phone won't let me :(

    When I was younger, I had a huuge binder with tons of sleeves that I put all my cards in. Sometimes I'd spend hours organizing them. At one point I had them organized by National Pokédex number.

    Eventually that binder broke, and all the sleeves were old and worn (especially since I shoved multiple cards of the same Pokémon in one slot), so then I just put them all in one big box.

    How do you store your cards, or how did you used to store them? Have you kept them organized?

    I was definitely a collector! I had hundreds of cards but never once learned how to play. I just liked them for the artwork, honestly.

    As the title says.

    If you buy your cards, where specifically do you like to buy them?

    I organize them all by type and because most of my cards are from Diamond/Pearl and thus have levels on their cards, I also organize each type by level... Yeah I like to keep stuff organized xD

    I always bought them at a local toy store, I don't buy them anymore though, but if I were to buy them again, for whatever reason, I'd still go there.

    I was a really stupid kid xD I once traded a whole pile of cards for something else, not sure what, but I remember that it was a stupid deal.

    I got them from a friend xD He said that they found someone who sold about 350 cards for $5, so they couldn't say no to that :D

    They are all in my pen case, which I take to school every day :D This is not even a joke, seriously! I only have about 80 anyway, and I took them to school one day, and I guess I just never took them out xD

    Just a big bag they are all in. Previously, they were all thrown into a tub. I want a binder with card sheets but they are too expensive since I'd rather be collecting cards then materials to collect said cards. My older brother already uses the card sheets and his huge binder for his Magic collection. I haven't been able to collect cards in years (like literally 7-8 years) so that is also another reason to not buy the stuff for me. I have only gotten card stuff here and there randomly and rarely since I don't want to spend too much on them even though I want to collect again.

    Ah, the trading card game. A fond memory of my middle school years. In the time I collected the cards, I must have gotten over 2000 of them. I only went of to the Johto set because after that I lost interest in the cards but I still play the games. My collection of cards are still on display in my room, however. I tend to keep things from my childhood for nostalgic reasons.

    Have you ever stumbled upon Pokémon cards with errors in them? Sometimes they are minor things like a typo, or major aspects such as a move's attack power or hit points. They can be funny in a way as well, as it is rare to see errors in Pokémon cards as there are so many to collect. I think the first error I stumbled upon was an old "Dark Exeggutor" card I had that spelled Exeggutor as Exeggcutor instead. XD

    I actually do own certain error cards, but the one I remember from the top of my head is a Vulpix card that says HP50 instead of 50HP, it's a minor thing, but when I was a kid I always wondered why that one was different.
