Gotta Catch ‘Em All! Rare Pokémon Cards Worth More Than $100K

Identifying certain symbols on a Pokémon card may lead to an enormous payout. The value of the Pokémon Trading Card Game marketplace has increased by over 500% from 2019 to 2020 – and some cards are now worth astronomical amounts.

According to a report by eBay, since the pandemic hit in 2020, Pokémon cards have become a high-demand collectible item and an excellent investment for some people.

You might be surprised how much some of these cards are worth, especially the older versions. Even though it's almost impossible to get a hold of the older version, you can still profit by getting your hands on rare Pokémon cards and keeping them until they are valuable to sell.
