Collecting the 2003 PokÉmon Skyridge Set – A High-Flying PokÉmon Issue
Pokémon collectors are sky high about the 2003 Skyridge set and with good reason. This is one of the scarcest of Pokémon sets and unopened material is tough to find and increasingly rising in price. SMR talks with top collectors to get their input on the long-term outlook of this set.

Collecting the Classic 2002 Yu-Gi-Oh!: Metal Raiders (MRD) Trading Card Game Set
The 2002 Yu-Gi-Oh!: Metal Raiders set was an important addition to the TCG lineup. This set had direct connections to the television show and bridged the gap between the show and the game. Guest author, Anthony Ghezzi, a leading Yu-Gi-Oh! collector, takes a deep dive into Metal Raiders.

Collecting 2004 PokÉmon EX Fire Red Leaf Green – Breathing Fire into the PokÉmon TCG
Fire is not all that is red hot in the 2004 Pokémon EX Fire Red Leaf Green set. This set is packed with original Generation I Pokémon and introduces the first Charizard EX card. SMR takes a deep dive into this important issue to learn the hobby’s latest thoughts on Fire Red Leaf Green.
