A Pokemon card sold for nearly $ 1,000,000 this week, the most expensive buy-in-a-kind sale for a record. The rare PDF-inspired illustrator card was auctioned off for $ 900,000 this week at Goldin, the most expensive single-player game-like price with a record breaking. Goldin gave no details about a buyer or seller, but the sale broke a record of three thousand dollars, a card for a Pikachu illustrator. A graded version of a Shadowless First Edition Base Set Charizard sold for $ 369,000.
The “Pikachu Illustrator” card is among the rarest Pokemon card ever created, with only 10 of the 39 originals still being found today. The cards were first given to the winner of the Pokemon Card Illustration Contest in Japan and feature artwork by Theodori Yamashida, original illustrator of Pikachu. This card is highly coveted by Pokemon card collectors. The Pikachu illustrator has been able to record multiple times over the past few years. Notably the recently sold Pikachu Illustrator card was a graded “Near Mint 7”. There is at least one more photobook with a higher grade, which can be found in the room for a higher price.
Vintage Pokemon cards have become increasingly expensive in recent years, driven, mostly, by celebrities like Logan Paul, to get more buyers to the market. Base Set is the most expensive item on the market but other rare, limited edition, rare, and even limited edition, have sold-on second-highs. Since the influx of high-value Pokemon cards in recent years, eBay has begun offering more and more cards to purchase mandatory authentication services.
The Pokemon Trading Card Game, the first international Pokemon card set of the year, is for sale at the moment. “Brilliant Stars” is a completely new set that introduces new Pokemon Cards, a new type of card that introduces a one-time use function called the VSTAR power. The Pokemon Trading Card game is out today.
