OXCGN Looks At Collector’s Editions
And The Madness That Ensues
©2011 Nicholas Laborde
Ever since I was a small child, I enjoyed collecting things.
Can I explain it? Not really. There’s just something about having valuable items, or things from the past, that makes me smile. It’s like keeping the past with me.
It all began with the Pokémon craze as a kid. One of the most peculiar things, now that I reminisce over it, was the whole card game.
Maybe three card battles were done by me in my entire life. I simply collected them, and didn’t care to battle (because that’s what the games were for!).
Normals, rares, semi-rares, holographic ones, holographic legendary cards, and even more rare: holographic foreign legendaries! It was a collector’s madness.
