 U.S. "Base" Set

Updated: September 2014


Full Card List Notes

"1st Edition" cards are specially marked with the "Edition 1" stamp to signify their limited print run status. These cards were only available in retail outlets for a short time and their prices reflect their relative scarcity. "Unlimited" cards do not have the "Edition 1" stamp.

We are NOT selling cards. These are compiled for clarification of relative values and what you might expect to pay at a game store or collectible dealer for these cards.

Shadowless Note:  The "Shadowless" cards are the very first print runs that Wizards of the Coast (WOC) produced for the Pokemon Base Set.  This print run was remarkable in its poor "look".  The cards were dull in color and the graphics were "muted".  WOC quickly changed several things on the cards; the most obvious was putting the shadow around the box which had the art of the Pokemon character.  The "HP" font was also changed and the colors were made to "pop".  Shadowless cards are much like "1st Edition" cards in their rarity.  1st edition Shadowless cards exist as well.

Prices are all based on Near Mint Condition.  PSA Graded Cards can make them more valuable if graded 8 thru 10.  We highly recommend you get Charizard cards graded by the PSA.  ;-)
