Let this be your 100th reminder from me that you NEED to hold on to your old toys and games because they can be worth a fortune, which this new dad found out after his set of old Pokémon cards is going up for auction for $45,000!
The dad discovered his old binder of Pokémon cards, which we all used to have back in the day, and saw that they were all still in near-mint condition. Apparently they were given to him as a birthday present back in the 90s and he didn't do anything with them so they stayed in storage untouched.
However, when he was cleaning his childhood bedroom he found the collection and saw that it had a Poliwrath, Raichu, Venasaur, and even a Mewtwo that looked perfect. He took it to an auctioneer and they are auctioning off the set for $44,600 as a starting price.
