xQc whaled on the Team Rocket Pokemon cards

Hoping to pull out the most desired pieces from the First Edition box of Team Rocket, xQc went to extra lengths to ensure that it happens. He was spot on with his calculations after spending a small fortune on the cards.

He managed to pull one of the rarest Dark Charizard Hologram live on his stream, which is valued to be around $6,000 alone. This was not the only successful hit as he also scored big on other rare cards that were a part of this collection. These collective cards could see him earning upwards of $27,000 if sold to the right buyer.

Pleased with his efforts, he posted a picture of all the rare cards on Twitter after the stream.

Pokemon Cards can go for millions of dollars

Recently, Logan Paul was also seen spending $150,000 on a rare PSA 10 Charizard card. He secured the card from a famous Pokemon collector Gary, or better known as ‘Pawn Star Gary’, for an appearance on the History channel’s hit series ‘The Pawn Stars’.

Pokemon cards have a market of their own, and some of the rarest of the rare cards are worth thousands of dollars. So it makes sense why people go to such lengths to purchase these cards for their collection. It is not just for the bragging rights of owning one of the most desired pieces, but it could also generate significant profit.
