Recent rumours have been circulating about GameStop potentially entering the market of graded Pokémon cards and other trading card collectables. This news has been further confirmed by GameStop employees, with both Pokebeach and Polygon reaching out for more information.

According to retail management staff, GameStop sees trading cards as the next big thing, especially when it comes to highly sought-after items that have been officially graded by PSA, the renowned body for determining the value of trading cards.

In a recent post on Pokebeach, it was reported that a GameStop store manager stated, "GameStop’s leaders believe this is the obvious next step for the company. Physical media is waning, especially for video games. It was time for the company to branch out to trading cards. They are the future."

However, there are some limitations to this new venture. GameStop will not be accepting cards valued at over $500, and only cards graded at tier eight or higher by PSA will be considered for trade. Soon, GameStop stores will begin stocking Pokémon singles, making them a go-to destination for TCG collectors across the country.

Despite facing challenges such as recent layoffs and financial struggles, GameStop remains determined to diversify its offerings in the gaming market. Unlike its UK counterpart, GAME, which has faced its own set of issues with layoffs and restructuring.
