I’m back! I know it’s been a minute. Two weeks ago I had problems with the Internet after a company accidentally cut our lines and just last week I was getting ready for my trip to Vegas for the Evolution Championship Series! I’ve been going regularly since 2010, & prior to that I just couldn’t afford nor could I justify the trip out there, especially when Guilty Gear wasn’t on the main stage. Now that it’s made its return, I’m happy to go & support my friends. I took photos of Guilty Gear pools & finals this year that can be found on my Flickr.
OK! That has nothing to do with Animal Crossing so onto the main reason for this blog post. I have been organizing my doubles into a stack that I plan to send (in parts) to SugarCoatedKiss‘s Amiibo card shop. She’s a great streamer & supporter of Animal Crossing & has built a wonderful, kind community. Her prices on Amiibo cards are also incredibly reasonable especially considering how many people are trying to sell individual cards for $20 or more! She also regularly has giveaways you can enter on her stream for Amiibo cards. Definitely check out her site & give her a follow (& subscribe) on her Twitch stream.
Above are my extras. Of course they’ve accumulated over time but Toys R Us has had a sale going on recently that caused me to get several packs in the span of a week & wow, that sure made my stack of doubles even thicker! Still I am on the lookout for Zucker, Midge, & Stitches.
My cup came in from GameStop! These are no longer sold in stores but fortunately I could still get one online & it’s really cute. Meanwhile, I noticed a markdown on the backpack buddies at GameStop. They’re random unfortunately, but I lucked out & got three new buddies. Right now of the set I am only missing KK & Blathers.
I heard that there were buy one get TWO deals at Toys R Us on AC amiibo but was saddened to find out that it didn’t apply to the cards. I got a couple packs regardless & because I have terrible luck every card in my series 2 pack was a double. Series 3 & 4 yielded better results. I really wanted Bam! I’m trying to make sure I get all the deer & I am getting close to having all of them. I also ended up getting Static & Margie! They’re both so cute! This will really help me out if I decide to change up villagers in the future or…start a fourth town.
Anyway, I’ve long since run out of room in my small Animal Crossing card binder, so I went out & got more collectible card sheets for another binder & I’ve been organizing my cards.
I also found a few buttons I got from the artist JustDuet/Duetlol. I wish I had picked up more from her!
I’ve been organizing my collection again (& again). The deer, cats & sheep all go up front representing each of my three towns, & from there I have them organized chronologically.
I’ve been using the Nintendo Animal Crossing Amiibo site to catalogue my cards & it’s got a really handy spreadsheet you can download after marking down your collection. Anyway, I think I might put my doubles up for sale or trade in the future (they’re not free, sorry!)

Toys R Us was having a buy one get one 40% off sale on Amiibos & it happened that I didn’t get the summer costume Isabelle yet or Rosalina so I did just that!
Meanwhile, I got Paul the Earthbound package available on Fangamer & I was surprised to see that included in said package was a card with KK art! Knowing how much I love Animal Crossing, he gave me the card which is now on my Animal Crossing shelf. Check out this cute art!
Here’s a collection of some of my Animal Crossing goods! Don’t mind the two Pokemon cardholders – those contain some of my Animal Crossing cards. Not pictured are my Fauna plush, Animal Crossing calendar, & Isabelle backpack buddy!
What the heck WHAT THE HECK!!!! In December, my spouse, Paul, had ordered Animal Crossing Amiibo cards & I ended up getting Diana whom I’d been seeking desperately. Months later, we went to Toys R Us & I had him pick out the packs. I’d gotten villager cards I wanted: Wendy (in case she ever moved out accidentally), Lucha (I wanted him for my friend Alex) & Ankha.
Today, we went again & I thought ‘I really want Bob.’ Paul picked the packs. I got Bob, Monique, & Rudy – all great cats! His RNG is way too good.
