Pokémon x Van Gogh Special Edition Card to Be Reissued
When the "Pokémon x Van Gogh Museum" exhibition opened in September in Amsterdam, crowds reportedly made a run for the special edition trading cards and other merchandise issued with the show, causing chaos in the gift shop. Pokémon trading card illustrators riffed on famous Van Gogh works featuring Pokémon characters. There was such a furor among scalpers for the limited edition Pikachu-inspired Self-Portrait with Grey Felt Hat that the company withdrew the cards, according to artnet News in October. But now it has been reported that the company will reissue the cards to a batch of stores in the Netherlands, though Pokémon has not yet confirmed the news. For those who cannot wait, the original cards can be found on eBay selling anywhere between $150 to $5000 dollars.
