The most expensive cards in Pokémon TCG’s Obsidian Flames expansion are a fine mix between some of the most beautiful and rare cards and others with great competitive and collectible value. With every new expansion for the TCG comes a new set of cards, some of which become extremely valuable when sold individually. There is even a card that is worth over $100 in Obsidian Flames, for instance. Not all the best Pokémon TCG: Obsidian Flames Secret Rares make it into the list of the most expensive ones in the set, but plenty of them are present.
