Ewbank’s, Surrey’s leading international auction house, is hosting an online trading cards auction, featuring Pokémon cards, Magic the Gathering cards among many others, which is running online now until 3.30pm tomorrow (Friday).

Today (Thursday) is a viewing day from 9am to 5pm.

Ewbank’s trading card specialist Roy Raftery said: “People value the ability to buy from different sources and they feel they’re buying the real deal – our condition reports and detailed descriptions put people’s minds at ease when buying something like a base set booster box for more than £10,000.

“We are building relationships with a lot of our customers. We have individual die-hard collectors, reputable businesses and individuals who buy with the intention to resell and even content creators and celebrities, which really shows our diverse range of sellers and buyers.

“Our auctions are getting bigger and bigger, and our prices are a true indication of where the market is at.

“We have more than 160 PSA graded cards – this is something our customer base have been asking for.”

One of the most valuable Pokémon trading card games on sale this Christmas – and favourite among collectors – is a Pokémon ‘Fourth Print UK’ base set sealed booster box (Wizards of the Coast, 1999-2000). This lot contains a sealed ‘fourth print’ ‘Blue wing Charizard’ and has been estimated at between £11,000 and £20,000.

Also among the sealed booster boxes is a Pokémon TCG sealed Team Rocket booster box. This is the fourth Pokémon set released in 2000, which has been valued at £4,500 to £6,000, and a Pokémon TCG sealed Tempest gift box, which contains original unopened packs from the first three sets which were all released in 1999 and has a guide price of £800 to £900.

Something a little more unusual is a set of five Pokémon animation cels “Dawn opening door” storyboard. These have a value of between £200 and £400.

Some exciting new additions to the auction are four separate lots of Disney Lorcana first edition sets.

These are a set of six Disney cards – no-one wants to miss out on the buzz of a new trading card game, especially one backed by Disney and featuring such iconic characters.

These sets are limited releases as they were released by Disney exclusively at D23 in 2022, the Disney Fan Club expo held every two years in the US.

The set features six rare cards from the upcoming Lorcana trading card game made exclusively by Disney. Each lot has an estimate of £2,000 to £4,000.

For the Magic the Gathering collectors out there, a factory-sealed Urza’s Legacy booster pack is up for grabs and has a guide price of £100 to £200, and a 2018 San Diego Comic-Con Planeswalker promotional set, which could be bought only over the weekend of the 2018 San Diego comic con, has been valued at £200 to £400.

If you’re a Yu Gi Oh! enthusiast there is a Blue-Eyes White Dragon PSA graded ten gem mint. This particular card came out only in Japan and is extremely rare, with an estimate of £500 to £600.
