I want to do something like a Pokemon Card of the Day quite often during the week whenever I get time, depending on how much I know about the card I will analyze the card. Cards like this one, which is older and is an absolute classic I will more than likely be posting personal experience with this card, so here goes nothing:
This Charizard Base Set 2 card was the card to have when I started collecting Pokemon cards in the late 90's. I think I was in about 5th grade when I first really starting collecting and I never did end up pulling this Charizard or getting it in a trade from anyone. The only reason I have one now is my youngest brother sold all his cards to me and he had a Charizard in mint condition in his collection which I have no idea where he got. I could have had a chance at a Base Set 2 Charizard, I was at Walmart a long time ago and they had this packages with 4 booster packs in them for $2.97, they were really cheap, but I didn't have much money back then so I was going to buy 3 of the packs, but then I decided I wanted to save a little bit of my money so I gave the pack I didn't want to my brother so he could buy it for himself, and when we got home he pulled a Charizard out of that pack, I was pretty jealous. And no matter how many packs I opened after that I never got a Charizard. Maybe I should buy a Base Set 2 booster box sometime, so I can get a Charizard of my own. Back in the day when this card first came out I wasn't into battling at all but I thought the card was pretty cool because it had fire spin which did 100 damage and the hp was 120, I don't even have to look at the card to know what it's hp was, it just stood out in my mind because it was so powerful at the time, compared to nowadays it isn't that good, but it was a great card. Now that this card has been remade in Stormfront I actually think I like the new artwork better, but I can save that card for another time. I hope you like my first Pokemon Card review/personal story. Comment on what you think about this, or if you have any fun stories relating to this card. I gotta get to class, so PrimetimePokemon is out!
