The Pokemon Trading Card Game has had a devoted fanbase ever since it was introduced to the world in 1996, so it’ll come as no surprise that rare cards can sell for lots of dollars. For instance, one player in New York last year purchased a Pokemon card for $60,000. That was almost a year ago but he still hasn’t received it.
The card was lost in the mail.
“Recently one of the most valuable cards in the hobby was lost or stolen in the mail,” explains YouTuber smpratte, a trading card aficionado, in a video Tuesday. “Both buyer and seller, I know both of them very well, they did everything they could to make this as above board and legitimate as possible.”
Holy crap these two people are stupid and I have zero sympathy for them.
