Pokemon cards make over £55,000


A collection of 1990s and 2000s Pokemon cards has realised more than £55,000 at auction, more than doubling their predicted sale price. 

The cards were sold at auction in Nottinghamshire. 

They were all in a single collection. Among them were some of the rarest and most expensive cards in the hobby. 

The auction brought in bidders from around the world, including Japan, China, and the USA.  

This was an extraordinary collection of the cards, which originated in Japan in 1996.

Pokemon takes in cartoons, movies, video games and an enormously popular trading card game. 

Logan Paul owns the world’s most valuable Pokemon card.

Among the 2,407 cards sold in Nottinghamshire were 10 Complete sets and 10 Master sets, which include not just standard-issue cards but one of every possible variant of every card. 

It also included individual cards of such rarity that auctioneer Richard Winterton says some valuable sets were probably bought to secure single cards. 

In total the sale brought in £55,270.

The top single item was a Skyridge set of 332 cards that made £18,000 from an online UK buyer. 

Two other sets made over £8,000 each. 

The most valuable known Pokemon card sale was the $5.275 million ($4 million in cash the rest in a Pikachu card he owned). 

As that card, a unique population 1 PSA 10 Illustrator Pikachu, was bought by YouTube star Logan Paul there may be an element of publicity adding to the price.
