How to Spot a 1st Edition PokÉmon Card from Shadowless and Unlimited
You might say that card collecting has a language all its own, and each segment of the hobby is a different dialect. The following post from PSA’s brand-new blog could be titled Pokémon 101. It breaks down the framework of these popular sets and gives us all the vocabulary we need to begin speaking Pokémon!

Collecting the 1999 PokÉmon Fossil 1st Edition Card Set – A Rock-Solid Investment?
There is always something cool about an original, and Pokémon Fossil is no different. The third and final set of the original Pokédex, these cards are part of the foundation upon which the Pokémon craze has been built. In the following article, SMR dives deep into Pokémon Fossil and shows us just why these cards should be an integral part of your collection!

Collecting the 2001 PokÉmon Neo Discovery 1st Edition Set – A Largely Undiscovered PokÉmon Issue
With Pokémon cards being as popular as they are, how could a set from 2001 be considered undiscovered? Perhaps under-appreciated would be a more apt description. That surely won’t last though. SMR sheds light on Neo Discovery and shows collectors why they should begin paying attention to this set!
