Why I recently Bought Pokémon Cards

I was about 12 years old when I was first exposed to Pokémon. I loved everything related to it and if you wanted to be somebody, in my group of friends, you needed to have your hands on some Pokémon merchandise; most popular of which were Pokémon cards.

Being 12 years old, Pokémon cards were difficult to come by as I had no money. I was also a bit of a weird kid considering that I never actually played with the cards I gotten as I would keep them in binders to be admired. I somehow believed that these would be "worth" something someday which part of that turned out to be true when considering that a first edition Charizard recently sold for 300k.

Fast forward 25 years and I've recently found my old cards and decided on expanding my collection. Judging by how difficult it is to find Pokémon cards these days I would say that I'm not the only one who decided to expand their collections during Covid. 

I certainly picked the wrong time to kick start my collection again but it's an enjoyable experience none the less.
