Pokemon, the game that took the world by storm in the early 2000s, made a recent revival into popular culture with their new app. However, many people still have collections of “vintage” Pokemon cards, and even more are again interested in growing their collections.
This is helping drive up the value of your Pokemon card collection.
If you’re holding onto a Pokemon card collection today, it may be valuable to where you may be interested in selling it. But what’s the best way to sell your Pokemon cards for the highest price possible? Here are our suggestions:
Organize Your Collection
The larger your collection is, the more important it is to keep it organized. This will help you in a few ways. First, it will help you identify your “cornerstone” pieces of the collection– which are your most important and most valuable cards? It will also help you identify exactly how many cards you have, which is another important number. Organization also usually implies that they were stored well which means they’ve aged well and should be in great condition.
Know The Pros And Cons Of Where To Sell
When selling any collectible, there is usually a trade-off between ease of transaction and best selling price possible. Some places, like Craigslist or eBay, can sometimes give you a higher price but take a LOT of time, money and luck in order to run a successful auction. Other places like pawn shops make the transaction very easy, but you won’t get the highest price possible.
Know What Drives Value Of Pokemon Cards
The value of Pokemon cards is driven by the same variables as other collectibles– condition, rarity and historical significance. The rarer a card is, or the more historically significant it is, the higher price it will yield in an auction.
Know The Estimated Value Of Your Collection
Ultimately, the value of any Pokemon card or collection is simply what a buyer is willing to pay for it. You can do as much homework and estimation as you want, but until you put it up on the market you really won’t know. The best way to estimate what you should be getting for your collection is comparing it to similar auctions that contained similar items, and luckily eBay makes it very easy to search for completed auctions.
