Pokemon Card Values

Look up your Pokemon card’s value with Mavin. Get real market values based on recently sold Pokemon cards.

You’ll need these details:

  1. Enter the card name. Printed at the top of the card.
  2. Enter the card number. Printed at the bottom of the card as a fraction.
  3. Enter holo if the Pokemon image is holographic/shiny… or reverse holo if the frame, not the image, is holographic. If you don’t know, don’t include these words in your search. Use the checkboxes to pick ones that look similar to your Pokemon card. Or watch the video below where I explain the difference.

For example Dragonite 52/108 foil

The card name is printed at the top of the Pokemon card. In this example “M Charizard”.Finding Pokemon card name to look up value.

The card number is printed at the bottom as a fraction. In this example “101/108”. Using the Pokemon card number to look up value.

If you get too many results that include cards NOT like yours, use the checkboxes to pick the ones just like yours. Choosing a few comparable items by using the checkboxes gives you a much more accurate estimate of your Pokemon card’s value.

What to do next:

Once you’ve searched mavin.io and figured out the value of your Pokemon cards, you have several options:

If your Pokemon cards are valuable… You could hold onto the cards and “collect” them, as most collectors do, and hope they appreciate in value over time. It may be a good investment to get them professionally graded by PSA, this will dramatically increase their value.

You could sell your Pokemon cards to a local card shop, knowing full well their value (because you searched for them on Mavin right?). But remember, dealers purchase collections at wholesale prices. They need to make a profit after all, and selling a large collection takes a considerable amount of time and resources… so don’t expect (or demand) to get 100% of what you’d get online.

Selling your Pokemon cards online will get you the best price, but it can be time consuming: taking pictures, writing descriptions, responding to customers, packing, shipping, returns… it’s a lot of work. If you have the time and patience, selling them online is a great way to make money. Read our guide to selling on eBay.

If your Pokemon cards worthless… your cards don’t have to be valuable to still be enjoyed. There’s probably a friend, a kid you know, or even a stranger who would love to have them. Give them away to someone who will enjoy them! Or sell them for a fraction of what you originally paid for them by dumping them on Craigslist. If you do give them away to someone who doesn’t play, teach them a game or two so they get the hang of it… or at least print out the instructions/rules for them!

  1. I’ve some of the cards worth in the hundreds of dollars on other sites by exspert card specialists. Are you card experts?
    Or are you ripping people off!

    1. LOL, we’re not buying or selling cards… we’re just a website that tells people what their cards are worth based on cards that have recently sold online. Mavin gives you an estimated worth, that’s all!

    2. Can you please tell me how to get a card expert look at my cards plz
      I have all first edition cards

      1. Hey Toni… I’m not in the business of appraising cards… but if you have a bunch of 1st Edition cards it might be worth your time and money to get them authenticated and graded… especially if you plan on selling them. It’ll cost you $$ to get them graded by PSA, so it usually only makes sense to get the valuable cards authenticated and graded… you can find card prices by clicking on the cards in the Pokemon 1st Edition card set.

  2. I have used your website to put a value on my pokemon cards, which gave me a good insight on the value of my pokemon card.Do you evaluate stamped envelopes from 1947, 1954, etc?.

    1. Linda – Glad you were able to evaluate your Pokemon card values using Mavin! As far as stamps go… you can look them up on Mavin too… you just need to know what details to include. For stamps you want to use the Scott catalog number… and a cancelled envelope sounds like a “First Day Cover” or FDC. So your search might be something like “Scott 945 Thomas Edison FDC“. Good luck!
