And one item, even from the ’90s, is in demand right now.

According to Harrison, the collectibles market as a whole has become somewhat irrational in recent years. “The system received such a large inflow of cash that many prices increased. What’s shocking is that Pokémon cards that were worth $10,000 [approximately] ten years ago are now worth over a million dollars.”


The highest price ever paid for a Charizard and the third-highest price paid for any Pokémon card ever was $420,000 in March of this year for a 1999 Charizard. The majority of cards are owned by serious collectors who are unlikely to sell them on the open market, which is why the price was so high, according to Forbes. The Pikachu Illustrator, a “extremely rare” limited-edition Japanese card that sold for $900,000, is the most expensive Pokémon card in history.

But not all deals are worthwhile. Harrison mentioned that he sometimes has to break people’s hearts as part of his job.

People frequently approach him and claim that certain items have been in their family for many generations, he said. “I actually knew someone on the East Coast who believed they owned a Mayflower stool. I guess I had to hurt their feelings. It is typical of families. It’s similar to the telephone game you played throughout kindergarten. The narratives alter.”

Harrison said that it’s surprisingly easy to spot a fake.
