Pokémon Card Value: How Much Are Your Pokémon Cards Worth?


If you were a Pokémon fiend back in the day, you might want to scourage through your parents’ basement to find your long-lost collection.

Who knows—maybe you’re sitting on a rare Charizard that could cover the rent this month!

How To Find A Pokémon Card’s Value

Figuring out the set the card originated from helps you separate your cards into piles of high-value sets and lower-value sets.

1: Determine the Card’s Set

2: Examine the Card’s Rarity Symbol

Sorting your cards by rarity is a great way to filter out the less valuable cards from your collection.

3: Check for a Shadow

If it has a drop shadow behind it, it’s not a Shadowless card. You may have a valuable card if there is no visible shadow.

Generally, Wizards of the Coast cards from 1999 and 2000 are the most valuable Pokémon cards.

4: When Was It Made?

Collecting Pokémon cards is time-consuming, let alone flipping them for profit. However, reigniting your childhood passion in a new way may be just the activity for you.
