The numbers are in, and although the Charizard on Goldin did not hit the half-million mark, it did break a record previously held by Logic’s $226,000 USD winning bid.

Sold for an impressive $369,000 USD, this new price for the 1st Edition pristine 10 card now holds the record for most expensive Pokémon card sold — surpassing the 1-of-39 Pikachu Illustrator Card. Confirming that the Charizard craze is not slowing down was an additional sale through PWCC on eBay which also broke the $300,000 USD threshold. This card belonged to a collector who bought the card in 2009 for $700 USD, selling it a few days ago for $350,000 USD. The collector bought the card for purely nostalgic purposes in reliving his childhood without even thinking about the future value of it.

Stay-tuned for more TCG news, as there’s sure to be even more movement in the Pokémon card world, especially with the upcoming Shining Fates expansion.

In other card news, eBay is testing out $1 USD shipping for trading cards.
