If Nintendo's new Pokémon Go game hasn't taken you down memory lane yet, then this article surely will.

The highly successful consumer electronics company released the game for iOS and Android users nearly a week ago, and it has already received critical acclaim. The interactive app allows users to "capture, battle and trade" classic Pokémon such as Pikachu and Squirtle from the comforts of their office cubicles and has sparked people all over the world to indulge and obsess over the nostalgic game.

Now that the mobile app has become an international phenomenon, it begs the question: How much are the actual Pokémon trading cards worth? While the more recently-produced cards may not be worth a ton, if you kept your '90s collection in good condition, you may be sitting on a fortune -- there are some vintage cards that are going for thousands on eBay.

So, if you collected binders worth of Pokémon (don't feel embarrassed, lots of us did) and you are ready to say goodbye to a little slice of childhood, head over to eBay and list some of your most valuable cards on the site.
