Honus Wagner. LeBron James. Wayne Gretzky. And now… Pikachu? The booming sports-card industry isn’t just about sports anymore.
A set of 1st-edition Pokemon cards is headed to auction and expected to fetch upwards of $750,000.

All 103 cards in the set carry a Gem Mint 10 rating, including the prized Charizard – a copy of which sold for a whopping $369,000 on its own just last month.

Bidding on the set began Monday and runs through Jan. 31st.
