And just an observation I noticed, I have complete sets of the first 3 sets (base, jungle, fossil) as of like 20 years ago, so I don’t need to bother with those, but I wanted to skim them on TCG player anyway. And it seems like every single listing is extremely well stocked. So well stocked you gotta wonder why the prices on some of them are where they are. But, going beyond that set, things become more sparse, some cards with only single listings.
So what I’m wondering, did the first 3 sets have excessive printings to keep up with 90s Pokemon hype, or do people set any cards from those sets aside to sell to pander to nostalgia, since those are the most widely recognized?
