24Pikachu Illustrator: $90,000
39 of these cards were awarded to the winners of Japanese Pokémon art competitions.
If by some utter miracle you've got a Pikachu Illustrator card hidden in your Pokémon card collection, you're in a very exclusive club.
It's unclear if all 39 are even still in existence—recent estimates put the number closer to six. Needless to say, these cards tend to sell for a lot
on the rare occasion they're available to purchase. In fact, the most recent eBay listing for a Pikachu Illustrator card had an asking price of $100,000. Wow!
