    I went to the mall a couple days ago to a hobbies like store surprised to know that they had a bunch of booster packs. I asked if their was a limit and they said no the craze for cards has died down a bit. As a new collector I was so excited and got 10 booster packs. Sadly it was too good to be true because after opening half of them I realized that they were resealed 😓 if it’s too good to be true it probably is. I really hate the greed of people

    i remember collecting pokemon cards because every boy in my class did it and since i was a girl it gave me a superior feeling to them when i drew a better pokemon. i didn’t even know how to actually play with them and i spent over $500 and 4 years of my life on them. 😌

    As someone whose been collecting cards these past 3 years just learning and playing with my son. It’s just gotten pretty ridiculous buying them. Like I actually play Pokémon cause it’s fun. Yes I have a special binder with all my collectibles but I do not plan to sell. Also....I pulled a charizard. Lost my shit 🤩🤩🤩

    tbh I would give Keith one of my two 1st or 2nd edition holographic Charizard's. I cant tell if its first or second gen cause I have a hard time reading cards. one of the 2 holo Charizards I have is nearly perfect. edit: just realized there is a picture of the Charizard card I have in the video in Logan pauls video. edit 2: he can have my Charizard for that luxray. I love luxray a lot.

Massive kudos to keith and the editors of this video though, they couldve done this in a more simpler way but decided to make the video immersive to the world of pokemon! Even though this might not rake in as much views as their other videos, its still good to see the guys do topics theyre passionate about
