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.
