Value Of These Pokemon Cards Soaring In New York State
The weekend is here and for some families that may mean it is time to clean house. Perhaps you have kids that will be graduating from high school this year or have grown out of their toys and games and it is time to purge things around the house? There may be some good news.
There are countless stories about people who buy things from a yard sale for a low price and resell them for a profit. The saying that "one person's trash is another's treasure" is very true. If you have the right eye for these things or have the knowledge about resale value, you can make a good buck after a trip to a yard sale.
But just which cards are the ones that are fetching the most money here in New York State? If you were to take a quick peak at your kid's collection, what cards may be worth the most?
According to moneymade.io :
Since the Pokémon company introduced Pokémon trading cards in 1996, prices for first-edition cards have appreciated by over 10,000%.
There are certain cards that grab more than others. For example, the article states that Pokemon POP Series 5 Espeon Gold Star can get as much as $20,000 for the right buyer!
