There are multiple databases that can provide you with the value of any specific Pokémon card you pack. Markets like eBay and stock x are places where you can buy, sell and check prices for many cards. However, for more expansive databases that can show you values and even Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA) ratings, Price Charting is a good source.
