Remember the good times? Sitting in middle school, eating square pizza at lunch, drinking a Sobe, and talking about The Blair Witch Project with your friends? We barely had cell phones, our 56k modems were SO SLOOOOW, and school dances were our social media.

If any of that applies to you, then you may want to stop reading. Because if any of the above sounds like you, its likely that you had some of the Pokemon cards we're going to be talking about.

Back in 1999, the Pokemon Trading Card game exploded into pop culture in the United States, and if you were like me (prime middle school age range at the time) you were right in the middle of it. I was buying these cards non-stop. But I wasn't collecting them all, I was playing and trading with my friends. However I wasn't that dumb, I did recognize some value in these cards, so I tried to protect them and collect them. Eventually I sold, traded, or gave away almost everything I had.

Now I wish I didn't do that.

Because some of the cards that I used to have are now selling for more than a new car costs. Not just new, crazy rare, extremely exclusive cards. These are the old school, original cards...like you might have used to have.

Here are some of the most expensive Pokemon cards that have recently sold online. There are different versions of some of these cards (like Charizard) that have sold for more than other cards on the list, but I picked the most expensive of each card.
