What Are The Most Expensive Pokemon Cards?

Deep down I know people are willing to pay a lot of money for certain Pokemon cards, but I often forget it. I do remember last year when a dear friend of mine accidentally, and yes I do mean accidentally, won a card in an ebay auction at over £750 – over $1000 – I am not making this up. The story is hilarious and involves him not locking his phone, fortunately it all got sorted and he learned a valuable lesson. Still for the uninitiated it can be hard to explain why these cards are worth so much, I am from this world and even I have a hard time understanding it.

Lets just say you might want to start going through all those Pokemon cards you have stored away in the attic, there might be a few winners hidden away in there.

The big three you want to look out for are

● At an eye-watering £300,000.00, the 1998 Holo Trophy Parent and Child Tournament Kangaskhan is the most expensive, and rarest card up for sale on eBay!!!
● In second place is the Shadowless First Edition Charizard with a price tag of £46,000.00!
● The Shining Charizard also lands in the top 10 with a selling price of £27,500.00

You need to have very specific cards but there are other cheaper cards that could still make you a tidy some of money.

Now if you only need proof look at what happened in America just last weekend where card collectors began buying up every Happy Meal in sigh from McDonald’s just so they could get every card that was being given away.

Value lies where people place it…
