A little Pokemon/eBay note ... I won an auction a week back where I got 7 packs of the latest Pokemon set for under $7.00 (delivered), which is pretty good since these packs would typically run $3.99 each at Walgreens or the like. Well, we were going to open these up tonight, but The Wife started bitching that it was already 9pm, yadda yadda yadda, so each of The Girls got to open one pack (I also pulled out six packs of the TV show cards from the box I'd previously gotten for Daughter #2).

Well, Daughter #1 is sorting through the cards and finds not only a reverse holo that we didn't have, but a Gengar ex holo as well! The Gengar ex is one of the rarest cards in the latest set, and "goes for" as much as $69.99 (although my "low reference site" has it for only $12.00 ... but that's still like twice what I paid for all 7 packs!). It's fun, on those rare occasions when I get actual packs of cards for #1, to have her find such an "exciting" card right off the bat!
