We have witnessed some astonishing sales in recent months with Pokémon card. Back in October, retired rapper Logic spent $ 226,000 dollars on a first-edition Charizard card, and a student sold the $ 80,000 card game collection to pay for university. Not to be outdone, we’ve now seen a rare Blastoise card go for an eye-catching $ 360,000.
When you mark the highest amount a single card has gone to at auction, you can see why when you realize the story behind it. Created by Wizards of the Coast, originally released by Pokémon TCG, this was one of two presentation cards used to convince Nintendo to move on with a trading card game. As a result, it provides a significantly higher value than the standard Blastoise card.
Around the same time, a separate auction took place for a set of first edition TCG cards and managed to sell for an incredible $ 408,000 dollars. There is not a similar story with this rare booster set, it was just coveted and unopened.
On the brighter side, those of us without a hundred thousand dollars left over can remember that The Pokémon Company is releasing some iconic cards as part of the series̵
