It's easy to forget just how long the Pokemon TCG has been going. While many view it as a card game for kids and a little older, it has been around for nearly 28 years now. Thanks to this, the young kids who started playing the game originally have now grown into adults in their mid-30s. Despite having mortgages, debt, and fear of the constantly encroaching abyss, many of these original players are lifelong Pokemon fans.

Unlike Pokemon’s younger target audience, the game’s older and enfranchised fans typically have more money. This makes them the perfect target for some deeply nostalgic Pokemon products that play into the memories of times gone by. Capitalizing on this market, Ultra PRO has just announced some brand-new Pokemon binders.

In total, Ultra PRO has announced four new binders, each one of which looks incredibly cool to our aged nostalgia-loving hearts. Containing twenty four-pocket pages each, these binders feature bright and strong colors with old-school art on them. They might look simple, but these binders truly look like they’ve traveled through time from the 90s.

Shut up and take my money Ultra PRO.

Beyond just aping the past, the new binders look incredibly similar to ones that a lot of us had back in the 90s, and we're here for it. After all, it's hard to find a binder that looks the part now as minimalism or bright over-the-top anime art tends to be the norm. We're definitely going to be eagerly awaiting more news on these binders when it comes.

For right now, sadly there’s not much information about these binders available. There’s no word on the price or release date of these upcoming products, for instance. What little we do know comes from Pokebeach, and has us already eager to slap down our wallets.

In the meantime, maybe it's time to brush off a few good paint pens or something and try and actually learn to draw so we can just make our own. We've got five months to practice, so you never know, right?
