However, the cherry on top was getting an ultra rare full art gold Reshiram holo. This card was in the first booster pack i opened! How lucky! I felt like Charlie when he got his golden ticket in the chocolate Wonka bar 😎

If you look at the bottom right corner of the Reshiram card you will see it is number 114/113. As soon as the card number exceeds the number of cards for that set then you know it is rare. Also, you will see a hexagon-like symbol next to this number. Every card has a symbol, which also helps to classify the cards rarity. Depending on how mint this card it; it can cost you anywhere between $20 – $80, but its generally accepted that the card is worth $50.00.

  1. I haven’t bought Pokémon cards in many years, but my rarest/favorite is a Dark Raichu (83/82), I was so excited after opening it. That fancy Reshiram is something else though, it feels like it should be stored in a vault.

  2. i haven’t had pokemon cards since gen 1.

    when I moved I threw most away (by mistake) but didn’t think much of it. Part of the bunch that went to the trash was a mint holographic charizard. When I saw the articles about them selling for 100s-1000s of dollars I threw my room apart hoping to find it. That’s when I realized it was gone 😥

    After that I did some research and found out I also had a few $10-50 cards (I kept all in mint condition) in that bunch too XD

    Thinking they would be more valuable, I still have all my Yu-Gi-Oh cards.
