Back during my childhood Pokemon was all the rage. I played the games, watched the TV show and like most of my friends collected the cards. One cards that I tried so desperately to acquire was the Charizard card. None of my friends had and it was the only thing I could ever talk about was trying to get that card. Then on my 7th birthday my father gave me the card you see below.
I was ecstatic. I had my very own Charizard! I was the envy of everyone at school. Kids would bike to my house just to get a look at it. But then over the years it donned on me the actual value of the card. Most Ebay auctioneers show the card as worth less then $20 some odd dollars. And as an adult it upsets me knowing that my father spent around $300 for the card. Sure he made me have one of the best birthdays ever but it pisses me off that he was somewhat scammed by those TV sellers. So my question to you duders is. Should you ever buy stuff like this?
