http://store.tcgplayer.com/AdvancedSearch.aspx and you can narrow down your search, or browse http://store.tcgplayer.com/Products.aspx?GameName=Pokemon&; for familiar cards and stop when you get to a low enough price (it sorts by price high to low).

If you have any first edition holographic cards - save them

There's only a few that are worth any money if you're talking about the original set, and I'm pretty sure none are worth anything worthwhile (over $20) unless they're First Edition (IIRC that's what they're called).

Don't take my word as absolute, but Pokemon Cards were WAY oversold.

vote-for2vote-against

Yeah, most are first edition...

vote-for2vote-against

@jsoko: Which ones are first edition? And are you sure they're the original set?

vote-for2vote-against

Yeah, pretty sure, back with the original few characters and when the Blue and Red gameboy games were released. I don't have them with me currently but there's a bunch and some are "error cards" (misprintings)

Do you have Wizards of the Coast cards or Pokemon USA cards?

The originals in order were -

Base Set
Jungle
Fossil
Base set 2
Team Rocket
Gym Heroes
Gym Challenge

I've still got all my original cards. Well over 1000 of them and over 100 rares. I tried selling them a few years back through an official ebay vendor, and he told me they were pretty much worthless... Maybe it's time to try again?

@abramokids: No, they're still pretty much worthless.

Charizard Holos are selling for $60 - $200 for 1st editions (depending upon which set the card it from) on ebay

@linkage89: They are the Wizards. I'm not sure what set. They say basic pokemon at the top. And "(c) 1995, 96, 98 Nintendo, Creatures, GAMEFREAK. (c) 1999 Wizards" at the bottom.

I'm actually in the same boat, looking to sell all my cards. I checked pojo.com and it's...alright for prices. I'm just going to try my luck on ebay and whatever I can get is good.

There are a couple promo cards worth $20+ each, but super valuable cards are few and far between. Your best bet is promos (#1-38 are worth an estimated total of about $150, not bad for 38 cards) and error cards, which can be worth $5 or more

@thedogma: Thanks, pojo.com seems to be the best site I've see so far.

vote-for2vote-against

@jsoko: I'm glad! They seem a little out of date, IMO, but it had almost everything I was looking for. For instance, their promos only go up to 38, but I have up to 43 or so. It gave me a ballpark though and considering I have almost exclusively older cards (I stopped playing in 2003 or 4 I think), an almost complete reference most certainly suffices.

Good luck with any selling you do!

You might also try shopkahuna.com. It pulls from eBay, but is a bit easier to use. Try performing a search on your exact trading card, then sorting by highest price to find out what people are selling it for. Then set the number of bids to a minimum of 1, so you know where the auction is at price-wise.

I just sold a card on eBay that was listed as $80 on many trading card value websites. After shipping and eBay fees I made $17.50. Pokemon cards just are not worth much right now and people are not willing to pay much for them. That card I sold was supposed to be one of the rarest and highly desirable pokemon cards. Pokemon cards are just not worth crap right now. Save them if you are like me and would rather keep your collection than maybe making a few bucks. Maybe they will be worth something someday.
