Ready for SOME Pokémon and MAGIC The Gathering?

When my kids were little my son Zachary collected baseball cards with a vengeance. He would do extra chores for spending money to buy another pack! I’m glad that some 30 years later collecting cards is still going strong. From baseball to Pokémon and MAGIC Mystic Intellect cards.

topps FIRE 2019 Baseball cards has 12 cards included and 1 exclusive BLUE CHIP card.

I know that some of us see the Pokémon logo and think ……… well, I dunno.  I guess kids cards? A passing phase? (Like my son Zachary said about the Internet!)  But, kids and adults alike go nuts for these cards!!

I asked a family friend to help me review these. These cards are drool worthy for a 13 year old!

But!! When I read how much some of these cards are worth! Well, I could

The cards arrive in a cute little GX TAG TEAM Pokémon collectors tin. Along with a metal GX tag.

MAGIC The Gathering

This card game is recommended for ages 13 and up.

Legends Await!! Choose your commander and carve your path to victory in this unique multiplayer Magic format.

With my Pokémon frame of mine still working the first thing I did was to look for the shiny cards. Turns out I have a Sevinne, The Chronoclasm card which is another great card to own!

Gather your troops and let’s play! 


Commander is an exciting, unique way to play Magic that is all about awesome legendary creatures, big plays, and battling your friends in epic multiplayer games! In Commander, each player chooses a legendary creature as the commander of their deck. They then play with a 99-card deck that contains only cards of their commander’s colors. Also, other than basic lands, each deck can only use one copy of any card. During the game, you can cast your commander multiple times, meaning your favorite Legendary Creature can come back again and again to lead the charge as you battle for victory!

These Commander decks introduce an ability called eminence that lets your commander lead from the command zone, even before they have entered the battlefield. The eminence ability appears on characters from all parts of Magic lore, allowing you to call on the power and skill of some of the best leaders in the Multiverse.


The Commander format is all about picking your hero and building a deck around them. In this casual, multiplayer format, you choose a legendary creature to serve as your commander and build the rest of your deck around their color identity.



  • 1 commander card (legendary creature)
  • 99 other cards
  • Only one copy of any card, except basic lands
  • All cards must be in the color identity of the commander


  • 2–6 players
  • Free-for-all multiplayer format
  • Start with 40 life
  • All commanders start in their command zone
  • Take turns in clockwise order
  • Last player standing wins

You can find all of these items at Walmart, Target and more. These will make excellent Christmas or Birthday gifts!
