World’s Most Valuable Pokémon Card Gets Sold for Over $50,000!


The card you see above was recently sold at Heritage Auctions in Beverly Hills for 54,970. A single Pokémon card that is worth over $50,000! Wow!

“The Pikachu Illustrator Card was given in January of 1998 to winners of the CoroCoro Comic Illustration Contest,” said Barry Sandoval, Director of Operations for Comics at Heritage Auctions. “Only 20-39 copies of this card were released, 10 of which are graded in top condition and it is unknown how many still remain with the public.”

What this means is that there are still between 10 and 29 copies of this card that are unnacounted for! Who knows, one could be sitting at the bottom of a box in your basement right now!
