    Anywhere online that you place a video it could be viewed by anyone. Unless you put it on Facebook, then only friends could see it.

    I dont understand why you just can't make an alter-ego name on youtube and post them, Crazyp. That and you keep contradicting yourself via the PMs you keep sending me and I'm pretty positive you don't have any card sheets, or as many as you say you do. I'll believe it when I see it.

    No one should be selective with sharing Pokemon items with the Pokemon community If you have something in Pokemon especially if its rare/unique you should share it with all not just a select few. You're uncut sheets if what you say what you have is for real it'll spark interest especially if you put it on video or post linked-pics on the gym.

    through the pm i was asking your opinion if i should start collecting single cards and take a break from sheets or should i stick to the sheets because its a different collection then the 4 of each card that 1 other member is doing or what willaim is doing by getting a small collection of cards yet perhaps the rarest collection.
    you yourself is a collector in your own right i was just asking your opinion.

    lol funny how you think i dont have any or as many sheets.to be honest i cant even believe i have all these sheets but i do.
    im gonna post pics by 5
    example 1-5,6-10,11-15 etc.
    im gonna get sheet number 30 in august if not september at the latest.
    so ill go up to 25.ill do 26-30 when i get number 30.
    so when i take pics how do i prove its mine.
    how do i know your not gonna say "oh thats not your pics"
    are you gonna take my pics as my word for it or do you need some proof that it is mine.
    maybe ill make a video and post it in the middle of the night and have it up for a few hours long enough for you to see.but ill think about that later for now ill put up pics.
    anyway i just moved and im setting up my frames up on a wall so i might not get pics up till late tonight like 3 am tonight kind of late.

    william should i be worried by showing my sheets.see it can go 2 ways 1 way more sheets will come out and be sod to me because peopel will know ill buy thrm or 2 people will like what they see and dothe same what im doing and then ill have competition.
    so what would most likely happen.

    Crazypokemon neither of those two outcomes is bad, everyone knows who knows you knows you collect uncut sheets for whatever reason you may have. The 2nd outcome isn't bad since competition potentially raises value in what you have and since you already have as you mention near 30 uncut sheets and some pretty rare there $value$ has strong tendency to go up.

    yeah i wouldnt worry about anyone seeing your sheets crazy, i mean not to be arrogent but me and william could buy a few houses with our collections, and we both want to share pictures because we know it is very difficult to obtain a lot of the cards, so people can appreciate them in pictures. So hopefully that helps your decision i should have some pictures up on live journal once i figure out how to upload multiple ones like prguitarman....why dont i just ask him, alright im having a convo with myself, okay enough crazy end post

    im not into sheets value.im not a person that buys to sell.
    i do want however my sheets to bring me money if im ever in toruble and thats the only way to survuve another day but i would never WANT to sell.
    so if i ever sell its because i have to not want to.
    i really dont want competition because there are more things tihngs to me then money.i collect uncut sheets because only i can say that it makes me feel 1 of a kind how many people here have charizard cards or complete holo set cards.
    almost anything you can think or showing off or bragging about or anytihng to say i have this almost everyone has.
    i dont wanna be a follower where everyone has the same thing im a leader thtas why my tihng is sheets.plus i like having so many holos on awall.
    i just hope more sheets will reveal itself and be sold to me i dont want competition.
    im in it for the cards itself not the cash value.
    im a collector if i wanted money ill just not buy pokemon cards and just keep my money.
    plus im hoping to one day get into world records with these sheets.
    maybe when i hit 100 sheets ill call up guiness.

    alright crazy take it easy, we dont need the crazy in this lets get back to the collection thing, if you want to ask about how to upload a video or help with pictures feel free but we dont need a discussion on ethics, but that is good you dont want to sell your sheets, you should hold onto them, but back to the discussion :smile:

    3 of every set means 3 of every set. Base - TR, GC, LC, NEO, E series, R&S, etc. Include 3 theme decks if that had a non-holo holo and/or Holo non-holo. Also all WotC promos, all Prerelease promos (except Raichu for obvious reasons), Winner, POP 1-9, Japanese Base - Neo 2, many old Japanese promos, Japanese Gym decks, Japanese R&S decks, first 7-11 series (don't remember if we did the 2nd), Vending 1, 2, & 3, i think that's it for Japanese. First 20something Black Star promo by Nintendo, many "Staff" cards, all premier event promo cards (except National Dragonite), Trainer Deck B (or A i forget which). I'm sure i've forgotten a block...

    yeah cards are going for extremely cheap, i saw a masaki omastar go for $3.27 that is not good, that is way too cheap those masaki cards should get at least $50, but i guess it is good for people who do not have them, hopefully their value will return to their right place. But the moltress card is a great bargin, congrats on the win dan :cool:

    Ahh I thought they were old sets but I couldn't figure out what sets they were.

    You and I both know that desperation and bitter competition has the Pokemon cards we see on ebay go for way less than they should go for:mad: It'll be awhile before these cards skyrocket in value but as a collector I really don't care as long as I have what I have, I mean who else can claim they have the only PSA-10 TMB No. trainer and PSA-10 SSB No. 1 trainer coming their way:cool:

    nice im glad to see that there is one at more of a proper price, but william i want to see the pics of your trophies :cool: well when they get back

    Don't worry you will, you all will if everything goes alright, PSA messed up on the No. 1 Pika from '97 which is an irony of ironies since that was the only card PSA has graded the like of in the past, while the other ones I sent in were sent in for the first time ever. PSA has my order held while I await the grading fate of the trophy pika which should end up being a 8.5 or 9 which I am perfectly fine with:smile:

    yeah i hope it gets a 9, and if the others receive a 9 that would be excellent too, 9=minty fresh :cool:
