Pokemon being a huge franchise, it has a massive community of collectors who like to store valuable pokemon cards in their inventory for showing off. However, it is surprising to know that these cards hold a ridiculous amount of money when set up for auctions. The most recent Pokemon card sold held a record-breaking number for rare pokemon cards. Here’s everything you need to know.
Pokemon Cards- Collectibles
Pokemon cards are worth a lot of money. But it doesn’t mean that any pokemon card will hold huge values in auctions. The value depends on various factors including rarity, condition, authenticity, etc. If a card is rare but the condition is below average, the value tends to decrease drastically. However, if a rare card is obtained in mint condition, the value of that card can be surprisingly high considering there are collectors who are more inclined to mint conditions rather than the rarity.
Pokemon Card- Record-Breaking achievement
At the GoldinAuctions, a rare 1st edition Pristine 10 Charizard card was sold for a whopping $369K USD. Yes, it is a huge amount of money for a card but for the collector, it is worth more.
This Charizard card holds the title of the most expensive Pokemon card sold surpassing the Pikachu Illustrator card.
However, another Charizard card also reached the $300K mark which was made available for sale through PWCC on eBay. The original owner purchased this card for a mere $700 way back in 2009 for the sake of reliving those days of childhood but little did he know what the future value of the card will be.
There are also other Pokemon cards that hold respectable values. Some notable ones are- No. 1 Trainer Card, Master’s Key card, Pikachu Illustrator card, and 20th anniversary 24-K Gold Pikachu card.
Although they were not sold for anywhere near $300K, the value will increase as time passes and a day might come when these cards will be up for more than a million.
