Germany and Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Christoph Kramer has done what many Pokémon fans can only dream of - by owning a full set of all 151 original cards.

The 29-year-old may have won the 2014 World Cup with Germany, but one of the finer achievements in his life might just be a full set of 151 original Pokémon cards.

To the envy of every 90s kid going, the former Bayer Leverkusen and VfL Bochum player recently gave people a glimpse into his impressive collection.

The fascinating world of Pokémon and the memorabilia that comes with it has become a serious hobby for millions of fans since it's release in the mid 1990s.

Speaking to SPORTbible about his hobby, Kramer said:

I guess every child born in the 90's was a huge Pokémon fan.

It was great to collect the cards in primary school and it was always a kind of a childhood dream to have them all.

I have to say that I bought some cards aswell, but I didn't pay lots. I don't know exactly how much the value is, but I hope the time plays for me, like we would say in German. But I would never sell them.
