So as we learned last week, there are a fair few Pokémon cards that you can trade for a little extra pocket money and that's all well and good — but is it really worth digging out and giving up your precious collectibles for just $50? No? How about $1000?! That's right!

It may be a little trickier but those of you who were serious collectors back in the day could still earn up to 4 figures from some of your carefully conserved sets. All of these card collections (and a couple of rare individuals) sold on eBay for pretty impressive amounts this year; did you catch 'em all?
