The next boom of trading/gaming cards have arrived!

I'm gonna snatch these up and sell them to zealous parents Razz

[After further review of this article, it has come to my attention that these are just trading cards....and not the ones that becomes a game..... Where is the official Naruto card game Confused ]

The first sets of the Naruto CCG don't get released until next month.

I will not spend 68 cents on postage for one free Naruto trading card when a package of them is $1.99.

Why waste money on trading cards? I honestly think that maybe getting like the manga to the series or the DVDs when they come out is more worth-while than collecting these paper-like things. I mean, I love Naruto, don't get me wrong, but trading card fandom only last for a little bit, which means it's a fad at that time.

Look what happened to Pokemon. All the cards on eBay are tons cheaper than what they used to be. I remember when people were forking over $200-300 for a 1st edition holographic Charizard. I wanted that card badly when I was little, but like 3 years ago, I went to a grocery store which had a trading card vending machine, and there was the holographic charizard for $3.

Thinking of all the wasted money I spent on Pokemon makes me emo inside. *sad sigh*

I'm actually looking to capitalize on the popularity on the Naruto craze (hopefully it's going to be a craze) just like what happened with Pokemon and Yugioh TCG. Although I see no value in just regular trading cards, it's different from the TCGs because card is unique, and it's a card game, which makes kids want to get the cards to play the game. I had several people that I know who capitalized on the Yugioh craze, and he already has enough money to put 2 of his kids through college because of the Pokemon and Yugioh craze....Yeah, it's crazy, but people are willing to buy those hot cakes, and I want to make money (and maybe play a little) with the cards Wink

Naruto's big (somewhere between Inu Yasha and DBZ), but it will never approach Pokémon or Yu-Gi-Oh in terms of true mainstream crossover popularity.

The cartoon would have to be shown in a daily afterschool syndicated format or on Nickelodeon for it (and the associated CCG) to be Pokémon "big".

I couldn't agree with you more. I mean look at what time Naruto's on on Cartoon Network. It's on at 12:00 a.m. Fridays and 9:00 p.m. on Saturdays.

Pokémon was on at 7:00 a.m. in the morning during weekdays right before nearly every kid went to school. It then was put on Kids WB on Saturdays.

Naruto is too violent (by American standards) to be put on at mainstream times. Therefore it can never be as popular as Pokémon was to the youngsters.
