    Some Pokemon trading cards are rare, but then there's the Pikachu Illustrator promo hologram card from 1998. Only 39 are believed to have been ever released.

    So it's not a total surprise, then, that an auction for one of these is expected to fetch top dollar. According to IGN, auction site Heritage Auctions believes the card will bring in $50,000.


    "What makes it so rare is that it was not sold, but awarded as a prize in an illustration contest through CoroCoro Comic," reads a line from its description.

    Three first place winners got the card, along with 20 second place winners. Cards were given out in other contests that year, meaning there are a maximum of 39 copies ever released.
