Pokemon cards that don’t end up in jail: Pokemon cards first came out in 1996, and they still make a lot of money even today. Even though this card game is still a lot of fun to play, it’s the collecting side that’s been the most popular.
The trading and exchanging of Pokemon cards are still as strong as ever. This means that the rarest cards can now sold for tens of thousands of dollars each.
Many people buy Pokemon cards for a lot of money, so it’s no surprise that people make fakes. The Pokemon Company has had to make the authentication marks on each card more complicated because people have been making fake cards.
Also, sites like eBay have had to add authentication for people who want to sell Pokemon cards.
Many stores are hard to get rid of because they’re real. Booster packs for the game may sold at stores where the game is played. Stores may put out individual rare cards for sale.
