Exposure to a Bigger Audience
Pokémon isn’t just an American phenomenon. The games and cards are sold all over the world. As a seller, appealing to that global audience is key to getting the highest possible return on your investment. Bleecker Trading helps you reach a huge audience by connecting to buyers through our website. But we haven’t forgotten about the local scene. We maintain a physical store so you can sell your Pokémon cards to New York-based collectors too.
Understand Your Collection
“How can I sell my Pokémon cards if I don’t even know what they’re worth?” you ask yourself. The answer’s simple. Consult the experts at Bleecker Trading and we’ll show you exactly how much your collection is worth. Our authenticators will confirm your card’s legitimacy, in addition to grading it to ensure you get a fair price.
Did you know?
Logan Paul isn’t just the owner of the world’s most expensive Pokémon card. He’s also the victim of the biggest card con. In 2021, he spent $3.5 million on a sealed box of first edition TCG cards. Unfortunately, the cards turned out to be fake. However, there’s a happy ending as Logan was able to get a refund from the seller.
HOW WE CAN HELP
How We Help You Buy Pokémon Cards
Buyers need access to sellers if they’re going to build their collections. Bleecker Trading provides that access while ensuring your purchases are made safely.
Frequently Asked Questions
Pokémon cards tend to come with numbers at the bottom-right to show you which card it is in the set. For example, you may have a Squirtle card that shows 43/99. This means it’s the 43rd card from a 99-card set.
However, many sets have a Secret Rare card that breaks the set’s total. In our Squirtle example, a card number 100/99 is a Secret Rare card. These cards also often include a holographic star symbol to indicate their rarity.
These cards have an exceptionally low pull rate. As a result, collectors tend to value them highly. Always check the numbering on your card. If you’re lucky, you may have a Secret Rare card hiding among your collection.
Comparing a card you’re thinking about buying to a legitimate card is the easiest way to check if the card is fake. The PkmnCards is an excellent resource as it contains hundreds of pictures of confirmed legitimate cards for you to run your checks. Look for any variances in font, printing quality, colors, symbols, and all design elements on the card.
If you’re still unsure, take the card to be authenticated by a trained professional. Bleecker Trading offers this service, meaning we can quickly help you determine if a card is fake.
Visiting retail stores that carry Pokémon cards, such as Bleecker Trading, is a great way to meet fellow collectors. By building your network, you may find people who can help you access rare cards or link you with people who might want to buy your cards.
Beyond stores, consider attending local Pokémon card tournaments and events. Pokémon cards are interesting because they’re made for use in the Pokémon Trading Card Game. As such, hundreds of people gather to play against each other competitively. These events are great if you want to have a few quick games or if you want to meet people who are willing to buy, sell, or trade cards.
