1985 Transformers G1 Action cards

Postby kkthxbai » Tue Aug 16, 2011 8:32 pm

Hi guys; just found this awesome site which might be able to clear up some questions i have concerning a set of trading cards i used to play with as a child.

Does anybody remember the 1985, 195 base card set of the transformers animated cartoon. Hasbro released generation 1 only; but didnt bring out any follow ups.

I found a set when i was cleaning out my garage; and everything seems in immaculate condition. I can't find pricing or many records about this production line at all; so was looking to you guys for help :D

Also, most importantly, would love to hear if anybody else used to play with these as a kid ?

thx

Sadly, these cards were before my time, though there's some info on them here.
"When there's gold feathers, punch behind you!!"

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

Thanks alot mate. Yeh they were before i was even born; but my parents bought me some in the early 90's.

But yeah; its a costly set.. each card goes for $14.95 on ebay. And they are very hard to find in good condition. I believe the average price for a set is $700 cheap.

How hardcore are the collectors on this website ? would anybody be interested in negotiating around that price ? Or is it just action figure collectors here ?

btw, i luv your streams on youtube :P
