Gotta catch ‘em all! That simple catchphrase inspired a nationwide Pokémon phenomenon during the mid-1990s.

About Pokemon Cards

Kids were obsessed with the games, the TV show, and the tie-in trading cards. Soon enough, Pokémon fans all over America were trying to catch every one of the little critters.
Over 20 years later, the passion for Pokémon is still going strong. After dozens of games and years of Pokémon embedding itself into American culture, rare Pokémon cards are selling for six and seven-figure sums.

Now’s your chance to get in on the action.

At Bleecker Trading, we can help you to see if that rare Pokémon trading card you have in your collection is ready to generate a return on your investment. We can also aid buyers in searching for the cards they need to complete their sets.

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.
