How Much Would You Pay for a Pokemon Card?

Posted on October 8, 2013 - 3:54pm by Chad

If you've got 100k just lying around, how'd you like to buy a Pokemon card? This weekend a wild e-bay auction appeared that lists the ultimately rare Illustrator card with a buyout of 100,00 dollars.....

The Illustrator card is one of 6 in existence and was originally given out during a Japanese only Pokemon drawing contest. The card features Pikachu holding a paintbrush and has the word Illustrator at the top as opposed to the usual Trainer. Previous auctions for this artistic Pikachu have garnered up to $20,000.  So, what makes this one worth an extra 80k? Well the buyer says that it is the highest quality card in existence, holding a PSA grade 9 mint quality.

The auction has received 9 declined offers so far and will last until November 5th or bought out for 100k. If you had the money, would you pick this up?
