At Heritage Auctions’ most recent Trading Card Games Signature Auction, a Pokemon TCG “Pikachu” Illustrator Unnumbered 1998 Holographic CoroCoro Comics Promo has surfaced, graded a PSA 9. The promo card is considered one of the “holy grails” of trading cards for collectors. This card is particularly special since only illustration contest winners received the card from CoroCoro Comics. Only a known total of 39 of these cards have been distributed, one of which has now been sold for $840,000 USD.
The most recent PSA Gem Mint 10 graded copy was sold to Logan Paul in a private sale for $5,275,000 USD, which he wore as an accessory at the WWE’s Wrestlemania event this April. Heritage Auction’s sale of the PSA 9 card only sold for 16% of Paul’s PSA Gem Mint 10 edition.
The Heritage Auctions sale also saw a Pokémon First Edition Base Set Sealed Booster Box go for $204,000 USD, signalling a decline in boxes since 2021 where boxes have seen a high of $408,000 USD.
Take a look above at the card sold at Heritage Auctions.
