What is PSA Pokemon Cards (PCA, CGC, SGC)?
It’s all about entering the exciting world of hunting and collecting the most unique pokemon in and around the Canto regions.
This originated the great nostalgia fever, collecting our beloved pokemon in the form of cards, which allowed the creation of the first edition of official pokemon cards released by the Pokemon Official series in 1999.
After this decision, all the fans of our beloved pokemon friends have dedicated themselves to keep with much affection the pokemon cards and envelopes of these collectibles because the feeling of affection that we have for these little ones is incomparable with nothing.
The novelty of the “new gold” pokemon cards appeared in 2020 after numerous influencers were dedicated to open pokemon cards envelopes, awakening that dormant nostalgia in the hearts of fans of the series and collectors.
This made the demand for cards rise to unimaginable levels, so the price of many Pokemon cards (especially the rarest ones) went sky high, making it possible for many to make money with those unopened packs in the past or with cards that were gathering dust on the shelf at home.
In addition to this, a huge pokemon cardmarket has been created where all collectors can trade their pokemon cards and revalue their most precious cards. Selling their base pokemon card PSA, 8 PSA, 9 PSA or 10 PSA at the Pokemon cardmarket everyday.
As a result of this, companies like CGC or PSA became more popular and are in charge of giving a grade out of 10 to your pokemon card according to its condition. This makes a PSA 10 worth much more money than a PSA 8 of the same Pokemon card PSA.
How to get a Pokemon PSA 10? How much can a Pokemon PSA 10 card be worth?
It is as simple as getting your pokemon card, packing it in a special sleeve (card saver) for your pokemon card and sending it to the address of the PSA company, which will receive our cards and as far as possible will give a PSA note to the Pokemon card including the pokémon card values.
There have been pokemon cards like the Blastoise Wizards of the Coast Presentation Galaxy Star holo that has been sold for 360 thousand dollars or a Charizard 1st Edition PSA Shadowless Base Set for 369 thousand dollars.
That is the Pokemon price PSA cards that there are out there, so ¿which one is yours?
MOST EXPENSIVE POKEMON CARD EVER SOLD
Welcome to the TOP 13 of the most expensive pokemon cards ever sold in history. Much money in this list:
13- No Rarity Charizard Pokemon Card ($60,100)
Base set Charizard has always been one of the most valuable Pokemon cards, but the ‘No Rarity’ Japanese version is definitely one of the more sought-after variants. A GEM-MT 10 copy of the card sold for just over $20,000 back in September 2018, but the value of the card has skyrocketed in the years that have followed.
In November 2020, a Mint 9 copy of the card sold at auction for more than $60,000 and another brought in around $58,000 less than two weeks later. Prices of 9 rated copies of the pokemon card have fallen a little since then, but it’s left many wondering what a GEM-MT 10 might be worth in the current market. There are only six of them in existence, so it wouldn’t be all that surprising to see one of them break the hundred thousand dollar mark sometime soon.
12- World Championships 2013 – No. 2 Trainer Pokemon Card ($65,000)
The 2013 Pokemon World Championships in Vancouver were the first to be held outside of the United States despite all four semi-finalists being American. Three of them walked away from the event with the coveted No.2 Trainer card, one of which was sold for $65,000 in October of 2021. Not bad at all for just a few days’ work!
Of the three 2013 No. 2 Trainer cards that were handed out, only one has been graded by the PSA Pokemon Cards (at the time of writing, at least). It received a PSA9 rating, suggesting that a mint condition copy of the card could sell for considerably more should one of the other current owners ever decide to get their pokemon card graded.
11- Pokemon Card Tropical Mega Battle – Tropical Wind ($65,100)
A mint condition copy of Tropical Wind sold on eBay in October 2020 for an eye-watering $65,100. What’s more astonishing is that Tropical Wind is by far the most common of the Tropical Mega Battle set. Due to how rare mint condition copies of some of the other cards are though, they hardly ever go up for sale.
Tropical Wind is another one of the eight Pokemon cards handed out at the Tropical Mega Battle event. There are only two GEM-MT 10 copies of the card in existence, with most of the cards appraised by PSA being rated 8 or 9. That said, even these are worth a pretty penny to the right collector.
10-University Magikarp ($66,100)
University Magikarp doesn’t come up for sale too often, but when it does, it usually fetches a fairly high price. The average price for the card over recent years has been around $17,000, but the most recent sale was for considerably more. A GEM-MT 10 copy of the card was sold on eBay at the end of February 2021 for a staggering $66,100. This beat the previous record for the card (set in October 2020) by a cool $16,000.
The card was handed out as a prize following a competition held by Tamamushi University. Participants took a series of tests and those who passed were invited to a special tournament in Osaka. Following the completion of the tournament, winners were given a copy of University Magikarp. According to a magazine advertisement promoting the competition, 1,000 copies of the card were printed, but only 68 have been graded by PSA Pokemon Cards.
9- Pokemon Gold Star Umbreon Play Promo ($70,000)
Released in Japan in 2005, the Gold Star Umbreon Pokemon Play promo features some truly stunning artwork. This, combined with the card’s rarity, led to a copy being sold for $70,000 in June of 2021. The card in question had been rated by Beckett as a 9.5, suggesting that a perfect 10 could yet push the card’s value higher still.
In order to get their hands on a copy of the card, players would need to be a member of the Pokemon Player’s Club and then accumulate 70,000 EXP points before the end of the fourth season. Considering players only received 100 points for attending official events, not too many of these were ever handed out; as evidenced by there being just 24 graded by the PSA Pokemon Cards to date.
8- Pokemon World Championships 1999 – No.1 Trainer ($90,000)
Considered by some to be the rarest Pokemon card in existence, a copy of the No.1 Trainer card sold at auction for $90,000 in July of 2020. Given its supposed rarity, it’s perhaps a little surprising that it didn’t sell for more, but $90,000 is still a decent return for a card that was given out for free.
The card was awarded to each of the seven regional champions at the 1999 Pokemon World Championships in Tokyo with an additional card somehow making its way into circulation. It features artwork from Hideki Kazama and is part of the secret super battle promo set. Of the eight copies of the card to have been graded by PSA, only six have achieved the perfect GEM-MT 10 rating.
7-World Championships 2006 – No.2 Trainer Pokemon Card ($110,100)
For whatever reason, No.2 Trainer cards have always been highly desirable amongst collectors, and that is once again the case with the 2006 Pokemon World Championships variant. A PSA 9 graded copy was sold by PWCC for a little over $110,000 in February of 2021, making it the most expensive No. 2 Trainer card to date.
The card was originally handed out to participants at the 2006 World Championships at the Anaheim Hilton and allowed players to return to the following year’s event. Winning one wasn’t easy, however, with players needing to reach the finals in their division. It’s perhaps for this reason that the card sold is the only one to have ever been graded by the PSA.
6- Pokemon Card 1st Edition Neo Genesis Lugia ($144,300)
It’s rare for a card released in the West to sell for crazy money unless they happen to be part of the base set. For that reason, the original owner of this 1st edition Lugia card was probably a little surprised when it was sold by PWCC Auctions for nearly $130,000 in November of 2020. Six months later, and the price rose higher still when a copy of the card sold for $144,300.
There are 41 copies of the card to have received the PSA’s GEM-MT 10 rating, although the current record holder was actually graded by Beckett and received a 10 Pristine rating. Whether or not this sale will lead to other Neo Genesis cards skyrocketing in value remains to be seen, but – prior to the recent movement – the average sale price of a 1st Edition Neo Genesis Lugia had been just $70,000.
5- Pokemon Cards Family Event Kangaskhan ($150,100)
Just four or five years ago, the Family Event Kangaskhan promo card was selling for around $10,000. In October 2020 however, a PSA GEM-MT 10 copy sold for more than 15 times that amount. The card in question was sold by PWCC Auctions through eBay, with the final bid standing at a mammoth $150,100.
The card itself was given out in Japan following a parent and child Pokemon tournament held in 1998. Families battled other families with the parent and child teams who racked up the most wins being awarded the Kangaskhan promo card. There are only 11 GEM-MT 10 copies of the card in circulation, with a combined value of over one and a half million dollars.
4- Ishihara GX Promo Pokemon Cards ($247,230)
The Black Star Ishihara GX promo card was created to celebrate the sixtieth birthday of the current president of the Pokemon Company, Tsunekazu Ishihara. The cards were handed out to a handful of employees and friends, with one able to get their copy autographed by the great man himself. In early 2021, this card, which was subsequently given a 7 grade by the PSA, was sold by Goldin Auctions for just shy of a quarter of a million dollars.
Since 2017, just eight copies of the card have been graded by the PSA, with only one of those able to achieve GEM-MT 10 status. Whether this would end up selling for more than the one sold by Goldin is a matter for debate, as though it is in better condition, it doesn’t have Ishihara’s autograph which may make it less desirable in some collectors’ eyes.
3- Blastoise Wizards of the Coast Presentation Galaxy Star Holo ($360,000)
It’s been almost a quarter of a century since Wizards of the Coast first pitched the idea of a Pokemon trading card game to Nintendo. Rumor has it that ahead of the pitch, the trading card company printed out two copies of a single card to entice the Japanese giant: Galaxy Star Presentation Blastoise. In early 2021, one of these two copies was sold by Heritage Auctions for $360,000.
Such is the rarity of the card, neither of the two copies known to exist has ever been sent to the PSA for grading. Had the card gone up for auction a year or so earlier when Pokemon card values were at their peak, this would have likely sold for more than half a million dollars and broken the record for the most expensive Pokemon card in the process.
2- 1st Edition Shadowless Charizard Pokemon Card ($399,750)
Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul made headlines in October 2020 when he spent $150,000 on a 1st Edition Shadowless Charizard card. Perhaps surprisingly though, this is not the most expensive copy of the card ever sold. It’s not even close, in fact. The current record-holder comes courtesy of Goldin Auctions, who sold a copy of the card for just shy of $400,000 just a few months later.
According to the PSA website, there are just 54 GEM-MT 10 copies of the card in existence, which goes some way to explaining their value. Given that base set Charizard was produced in such high volumes, however, it’s entirely possible that there are hundreds more copies out there just waiting to be discovered; if not thousands!
1- Pokemon Pikachu Illustrator Card ($900,000)
The Pikachu Illustrator card has held the record for the most expensive Pokemon card ever sold on numerous occasions. The first came when a copy of the card was sold at auction for $74,000 in late 2016, with another bringing in $190,000 just a few years later. Then, in July of 2020, a copy sold for a staggering ¥25m through Japanese marketplace ZenPlus, and another went for $375,000 on eBay in early 2021. One year later, the card reclaimed the title of most expensive Pokemon Card for the fifth time when Goldin auctioned off a copy of Pikachu Illustrator for a staggering $900,000.
The card itself was handed out to the winners of an illustration contest held by the Japanese monthly manga CoroCoro Comics in 1998. Just 39 copies of the card were ever printed and only 12 of those are known to be in good condition. Interestingly, the current record holder was only a PSA 7 (near mint), so if the only existing GEM-MT 10 copy were to ever go to auction, it would likely fetch an even more astronomical amount and help the Pikachu Illustrator card to really cement top spot.
