As if it’s been 25 years since we were first introduced int the wonderfully wacky world of Pokémon. For a quarter of a century, its characters have engrained themselves into the modern culture with TV shows, films, video games and trading cards; the latter of which became somewhat of a goldmine in the process.
One man who knows his Pikachu from his Jigglypuff is Do Not Sleep & Cuckoo Land Ibiza resident DJ Jamie Roy; his Pokémon card collection is the stuff of dreams. Check out a few of his grails below…
Pokémon Big Three 1999 Base Set
“This set is the original big three from the base set in 1999. How I kept these since then in this condition I will never know. I wasn’t the usual kid who played the actual game, I put them straight in a binder and never touched them.”
Pokémon Big Three Japan CD Promo
“This is probably my favourite big 3 set. It was a limited edition run of the Japanese CD promo; I have the full set with the CD and case also.”
Pokémon Blaine’s Moltres
“This is one of my favourite gym member cards – 1st edition and in PSA 10 condition.”
Pokémon Dark Charizard
“This is the best of them all I feel, 1st edition Dark Charizard from the team rocket set. One of these sold recently on Stock X for £12k.”
