This week in PLEASE LET THIS HAPPEN TO ME: a first edition set of Pokémon cards has sold for USD$107,010 at an auction. That’s just a little bit over 158,000 Aussie buckeroos.

These Pokémon cards, via cnet, are first-edition trading cards from 1999. And I’m not talking one, two, or three collectibles, this is a complete set of 103 cards.

While the 20-year-old cards have rounded corners, the PSA (Professional Sports Authenticator) still decided the cards sat on a GEM-MT 10 level. In short, if you’ve got an authentic sport or non-sport trading card that you want to value the shit out of, the PSA can help you. Anyway, GEM-MT 10 is the highest numerical grade on the ladder. It stands for Gem Mint, meaning “virtually perfect” and $$$$$$.

According to auction house Goldin, 12 people placed a bid on the rare set with a minimum ask of USD$25,000.

The complete set includes all your boos like an extremely cool Charizard (the key card), Blastoise, and Chansey – I absolutely said that aloud in an extremely high-pitched voice. You can check out the entire collection right here. Click it, it’s actually very cool. 10/10 would drop a false bid for clout.

Another complete set of Pokémon trading cards, all PSA GEM-MT 10, sold for nearly USD$100,000 in 2017.

In related news, Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will drop globally November 15 on the Switch. Nintendo recently unveiled a string of new Gen 8 Pokémon from the forthcoming addition, including the already universally-adored pocket monster Wooloo and Yamper – the corgi-looking one with a heart on its butt.
