Christmas is almost upon us and we're being reminded of just how little money some of us have to get through the holidays... 

Perhaps all our random expenses were not the best idea... and now we're searching our pockets to be able to buy the perfect gifts, but will probably be repeating the motto 'It's the thought that counts'... 

But there may be one way we can either a) have the cash to finally afford those Christmas gifts... or b) keep all the cash for ourselves... 

Because one of our old Pokémon cards that we have stashed away in a box somewhere could be worth a whopping $75,000...

At a recent auction, one Pokémon enthusiast raked in $75K for selling one of the rarest cards around. 

But do YOU own it? Do you?!

The card is none other than The Pikachu Illustrator card and was given to the winners of the 1998 CoroCoro Comic Illustration Contest. 

Okay, so you probably didn't win the contest, BUT who is to say that it hasn't somehow ended up with you after a dozen trades with your childhood friends?!

You all better go check those cards you have stashed away...
