Last August 2018 a collector bought a game card on eBay based on the Pokémon saga for $ 60,000. It is a very rare card that, mysteriously, a year later has not yet reached its buyer.
The card featured in this story is a ” Trainer No.3 ” , of that rarest that exist of this game, and that was originally given to the finalists of a Japanese tournament of 1999, so its extreme rarity justifies its high price. The collector Smpratte, who claims to know both the seller and the buyer of the letter, have dedicated a video of his YouTube channel to explain how he has lost track of the shipment in New York, and how he has not become aware of it.
It is speculated that at some point during the process of sending someone could realize the value for which the package was insured, $ 50,000, the highest allowed, and that could have stolen the shipment. These collectors monitor the circuit of buying and selling this type of item in case a user appears that sells a letter with similar characteristics. For now, your buyer offers $ 1,000 reward for any reliable information that can help you find the lost card.
Pokémon fans still value the original card game of the franchise. A few months ago we could check the high price of some of these products in an auction, where they came to sell an intact box of Pokémon cards for $ 56,000.
