The World's Most Valuable Pokémon Card Just Sold At Auction For Nearly $55k

(Image Link)

Parents just don't understand why kids go crazy for Pokémon, but when the card game first came out parents found one element of the game made perfect sense- the high cash value of certain cards.

These rare cards were randomly placed in booster packs, giving every kid the chance to score big when they opened up a pack, but those cards are worthless compared to the rarest of them all- the Japanese promo Pikachu Illustrator card.

The Pikachu Illustrator card was given to winners of the CoroCoro Comic Illustration Contest in Japan back in 1998, and since only 20-39 of these cards were ever made they sell for a small fortune.

How much is a small fortune you ask? A Pikachu Illustrator Card just sold at Heritage Auctions in Beverly Hills for $54,970, making it the most expensive Pokémon card ever sold.
