The odds that you have this rare Pokémon card lying around in your collection are extremely slim, but if you do then holy crap—it just sold for a world record $54,970 at Heritage Auctions in Beverly Hills.
“The Pikachu Illustrator Card was given in January of 1998 to winners of the CoroCoro Comic Illustration Contest,” said Barry Sandoval, Director of Operations for Comics at Heritage Auctions. “Only 20-39 copies of this card were released, 10 of which are graded in top condition and it is unknown how many still remain with the public.”
You read that? UNKNOWN. It may be in a box in your attic right this second! Haha…no it isn’t.
