Today I obtained a Pikachu (1st ed; German) from Base set. Would you be interested in this? I wouldn't ask a whole lot for it and it's Gem Mint. I'm not sure if you're collecting less popular languages though.
The trip was pretty amazing! We had great weather and were able to do a lot while I was down there for the weekend. The only part I didn't enjoy was the drive there and back but it was totally more than worth it. The drive itself was nearly 600 miles one-way.
