Approximately 34.1 billion Pokemon cards were sold worldwide when it was released in 1996. Some of the cards, which were found in almost every residence at the time they were recognized, are now very expensive.
Finally, YouTuber Logan Paul paid just under £4m for a PSA Grade 10 Pikachu Illustrator card last month.
Each card has a different character. Cards that have been forgotten and discarded for a long time can be sold for hundreds of thousands or millions of liras in small and limited numbers, thanks to both high-priced buyers and the re-establishment of the game with the effect of the pandemic.
According to the news in Sözcü, these cards, which were once indispensable for the game, now seem more like an investment than a hobby. In fact, finance expert Florence Codjoe advises anyone looking to buy or sell to make sure they compare prices: “Sometimes it’s hard to know if you’re selling for real or if you’ve been scammed. It can be helpful to compare prices sold in the past to check that you are not overpaying.”
