I have very little skills with art in general. Although, I am not too bad at writing poetry. My emotions need to be expressed and it is a great way to do it. Seeing the final product of working on a poem that I wrote always takes me out of the bad mood the poem was most likely based on. There are many different sides to me. Good and bad. I hope people will appreciate the better ones.

Interests
The other day, a guy I know gave me a bunch of old cards he found in his mom's basement or something. There are at least 100 of them and at least 2 of every card. Some of them also have a signature(sort of...) on them. I want to sell them, but don't know what my best option would be. They are NOT sports cards. They are a series of Marvel comic book character cards that are apparently from a series called Marvel Masterpieces and are from 1994.

I know nothing about selling stuff online, and that would probably either take too long or cost me too much money anyway. I tried selling them to this vintage comic book store I know about, but they don't buy them it seems. They buy used games, so I sort of figured they'd take them, but I guess not. Anyway, I'm thinking a pawnshop may be my only option left. The problem is that I don't know how much I would get. I tried researching their value, but didn't find much. Some other people I know looked it up and found some results, but I didn't get a chance to see those results.

There are so many different ones, and so the values would vary greatly between some. I figure that if I had to estimate, I'd say that if each card was $0.50 I'd be able to get at least $50 total. I want to sell them all at once. I got them for free, but I need some money. I don't really want the cards, I just accepted them in the hopes of selling them. I know for a fact that one kind of card goes for about $5 and another for about $3. With that in mind, chances are that I'd get more than $50 for them all. There are definitely more than 100 cards, but I haven't counted them yet. And the ones with the "gold-foil signatures" are definitely going to be worth a bit more than the regular version of those cards.

The thing about pawnshops is that since they have to resell the stuff, they only give you about half of the thing's actual worth. So I just don't know what to do. If anyone has any ideas, please tell me. Or if you know anyone who would want to buy them from me, let me know how to make the deal with that person. Based on what I know as well as my estimations, I think $85 or so would be fair. Because there are definitely more than 100, some are more valuable than others, and some have the gold-foil signatures and would be worth more. They are all in pretty great condition I'd say, so that shouldn't hurt the value at all.

I just want to get some fair amount of cash for them sometime before October if possible.

Hey, so you won't believe this, I finally encountered a wild shiny of my own! It's an Aipom, and the best part is, about 20 minutes ago I encounted shiny MAGMAR. Modest with H/A, two perfect IV's, and superior overall potential. :) Friend safari is SO good for shiny hunting.

I told you it was great! I did tell you about the Nincada and Pyroar shinies I got there right? Technically the Nincada counted as two since it only needed one level-up to evolve into 2 pokemon at once, both shiny of course. Also don't forget about the higher probability of hidden abilities. A shiny female Braixen with a beneficial nature and the hidden ability Magician would be amazingly useful in online battles! It will let you steal an item without using a move! Teach it the trusty Flamethrower or Mystical Fire signature move plus Shadow Ball for type-coverage and maybe Drain Punch for a bit of healing as well as taking out pesky Rock or Dark types. To top it off teach it one more move that can confuse or boost stats. Or if you are worried about status conditions, Facade is a great move to have as well. Since Flamethrower has a chance of burning, you probably won't need to inflict a condition with a status move such as Will-o-Wisp.

With all that on a Delphox, you'll have a near perfect one in my opinion! As long as you also Super Train the right stats and don't give it an item anyway. A lot goes into training, breeding, and stuff like that if you want to play competitively. I try to use my own style as well as using some competitive tactics too. So I'd love to have something like that, except I wouldn't worry too much about getting great stats as long as the ones it has are good enough. I also don't use many status moves either.

Well in X I started a new game, but Y still has an awesome team. I don't battle competitively, so I may be a bit easy to beat if you have do. In X, my team is just under lvl. 30. As for Y, I forgot.

And nice to see you again. :) I have been at my cousin's house for the last few days, so sorry if it caused you any inconvenience.
