Pokemon: The Trading Card Game is currently celebrating its 25th anniversary.

And despite being around for a quarter of a century, the Pokemon card game remains as popular as ever.

Indeed, the game is so popular that fans are willing to pay big bucks for rare Pokemon cards.

So if you’re thinking about throwing away your kids’ discarded collections, think again, because you might be sitting on a fortune.

An easy way to find out the value of your Pokemon cards is to look for a symbol in the bottom right corner of the card.

Cards with circle symbols are fairly common, meaning they probably aren’t worth a lot of money. Cards with diamond symbols are a little rarer, but probably not particularly valuable.

According to the WikiHow website, cards from the late 1990s are more likely to bring in some cash, even the rarities of diamonds and circles.

Cards with one or more stars are much more valuable and well worth investigating.

If you have cards that fit this description, you should go to a valuation website for a rough price guide. This includes sites like mavin, TCGPlayer and even eBay.

One thing worth noting is that prices tend to fluctuate, so don’t be surprised if the quoted valuation doesn’t fully match the selling price.

Some of the rarer cards are starting to reappear as part of the newly released Celebration Packs.

The latest expansion is said to “play out 25 years of nostalgia with fierce Pokemon, stunning art and evolving strategies”.

The Pokemon Company explains more: “Every Pokemon TCG expansion is unique, but the Pokemon TCG: Celebrations Collection takes extraordinary to another level.

“With a classic collection alongside other exciting cards, this expansion offers a festive parade of cards that you won’t find anywhere else.

“Celebrate 25 years of Pokemon with a collection that highlights some of the game’s most memorable moments and Pokemon.”
