As TMZ Sports reports, a complete set of Pokémon trading cards from 1999 have sold for a record six-figure sum. Pre-2000 Pokémon cards have proven to be a hot commodity this year, but this particular collection is extremely desirable, comprising over 100 mint-condition cards.
This past weekend, Goldin Auctions sold the entire set for $107,010 USD following a dozen bids. The 103 pieces were each graded Gem Mint 10 by the Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA), meaning that they’re essentially untouched. Key to the entire collection is the first-edition Charizard, which recently sold on its own for over $55,000 USD. The factor behind this model’s desirability is primarily in its condition — pristine considering its twenty years of age.
Behold the entire set on Goldin Auctions’ site and start digging through your closets for your old collections.
Most recently, BEAMS introduced an entire capsule collection inspired by the Pokémon trading card game.
