Pokemon 23K Gold Cards 1999
When i was younger, I had every single 23 karat Gold pokemon card, and now I seemed to have misplaced them. I'm hot on their trails, looking to find/buy them again. Anybody else remember getting these? i was only 4 when i got them....

Wow they actually made those? I am sure it is just gold plating, but still how much were they worth?

I've seen one of these, one of my friends at school had a Pikachu one, I was intrigued and I had quite a bit of money on hand, so I offered to buy it off him, but he refused.

I looked it up and it seems like they were sold at Burger King as a special promotion. Here is a link for the gold-plated Pokemon cards on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0013HP...B0013HP1JE

RE: Pokemon 23K Gold Cards 1999
I have those listed above minus Poliwhirl. I collected them too when I was a kid; Togepi was my first, then Jigglypuff, Pikachu and Mewtwo. Smile I still have them. Anyway, yes, they were from Burger King, I think to promote the Pokémon: The First Movie, or Pokémon The Movie: 2000. Can't remember which. xD

I believe PL helped cover that in his post, to buy them, P-Body. Oh, and Pikachu and Mewtwo were my obvious favorites, but since I got Togepi and Jigglypuff...it's just they're all awesome.

I've never heard them until now. I wish I would have known about them, but I was 6.
It's hard to believe that something from Burger King is sold for $100 on Amazon. lol
Pikachu is my favorite one *shocker* xDD Tongue

RE: Pokemon 23K Gold Cards 1999
I feel so old...ha ha! I was around six or seven when these came out and I Have all of them sitting securely in their respective pokeballs. Oh and Galdr they were promoting Pokemon The First Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back(It was called this because the original short movie that went with it "Mewtwo: origins" was contriversial due to the fact it involved a human that had died, a young girl named Amber, being cloned. Human cloning still remains a very contriversial topic of ethics amongst Scientists to this day. )
