All the Original 150 Pokemon Cards + WOTC Black Star Promo Holo Mew (9). 45 holos total - listed below - one holo of every possible Pokémon included in the 1999 Original Set.
Official Pokémon Binder that stores the set. This set includes all the possible holos in a 151 set - that's 45 holos to make a set 100% complete! The only way to have more holos than 45 from the 1999 Base Jungle and Fossil sets is if you include the 3 duplicate holos cards. Holo Raichu, Zapdos, and Magneton are in both Base Set and Fossil Set, which would bring the total to 48 holos and 154 cards total rather than 45 and 151.List of all holofoil cards included.

This set is in excellent condition Near Mint (NM) to Light Play (LP) = NM/LP. Note: there may be a card or two that one may consider (MP) moderately played. Overall the cards have been taken great care of with the majority closer to Near Mint. All cards are protected in sleeves and in the Pokémon brand side loading binder and show minimal to light wear.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you would like closeups of any card or front/back photos. An actual 1999 Original 151 set should only be built from 1999 Base Set, Jungle Set, and Fossil Set + one WOTC Black Star promo Mew (either holo or Nonholo) - the 1999 Wizards of the Coast Promo Mew is why the set is often referred to as "151/150" as it's not part of the base jungle or fossil sets.
This means that this Original 151 set is as 100% complete as it gets, and if other sellers are offering you Ancient Mew or trainer cards (not part of 151) or more than 44 holos, they are likely ripping you off on price by including relatively worthless extras or cheaper variations of the correct Pokémon. Check the exact list of holos (the most valuable cards) in other sets to make sure they aren't including holos from random sets other than Base Set, Fossil Set, or Jungle Set. They tend to have at least 14 less 1999 holos than this set but charge disproportionately high prices in questionable deals built off my store's reputation. This quality set is made up with only cards from the 1999 Wizards of the Coast (WoTC) Jungle, Fossil and Base sets. It contains all Pokémon from the 1st Generation Kanto Pokédex.
Additionally, every possible holo card from 1999 Base, Jungle, and Fossil is included with no cheap substitutes or extra unrelated trainers or modern cards to inflate price. All cards are vintage and were released in 1999 (BASE, JUNGLE, FOSSIL) Sets. No fake replica cards, no "from china" cards, no cheap cards, no modern cards no team rocket or base set 2 cards.
