PWCC #Pokemon25 Auction – The Cards to Watch

PWCC #Pokemon25

This week sees PWCC’s auction in celebration of The Pokémon Company’s 25th Anniversary come to a close. The monthly PWCC auctions are a good reflection of the current market situation and this special anniversary auction will be no different. We’re going to give you a rundown of five listings you should add to your watchlist and scope out on #Pokemon25 Saturday.

1998 Pikachu Illustrator PSA 7

Current Price (as of publication) : $310,100

We covered this listing in a previous article last week. If you haven’t checked it out yet then get it on the watchlist as this “Holy Grail” card rarely appears on public auction outside of Japan. Expect to see records broken due to the sheer rarity of the card and the potential importance of Pokémon day for #Pokemon25

Pikachu Illustrator

1995 Topsun Blue Back No Number Charizard PSA 9

Current Price (as of publication) : $42,100

Last month the PSA 10 version of this card sold for the most expensive fee in Pokémon history at $490,000. Whilst not a Gem Mint, this card will fetch a hefty price that could lead to further mainstream attraction for some of the oldest Pokémon cards in existence.

2006 Pokémon World Championships Promo No.2 Trainer PSA 9

Current Price (as of publication) : $50,400

This card, given to 2nd place in the 2006 World Championships is only one of three in existence and the only graded variant through PSA. An incredibly rare card that is very difficult to price due to its almost non-existent population report.

1999 Pokémon Base Set Shadowless Charizard PSA 10

Current Price (as of publication) : $52,500

When I spoke to Gary “King Pokémon” a few weeks ago he emphasised how much he loves shadowless Charizards. He said, “ I have 13 shadowless and I think those are a real sleeper. There are 121 First Edition Base Set Charizard PSA 10 and then there are 54 Shadowless, of which I own 13. They’re much harder to get 10s on because they were cut after the first edition so the blades were a little bit duller and things like that.” Worth keeping an eye out just to see the market trend, these cards were selling for around $100,000 2 months ago.

1999 Pokémon Base Set 1st Edition Shadowless Charizard BGS 9.5

Current Price (as of publication) : $50,100

The “Holy Grail” of English Pokémon cards in a BGS 9.5. This card may benefit from the Logan Paul box break on the same day which will heavily emphasise the price of a PSA 10 variant. The subgrades on this particular card lean closer to 9 than 10 but the popularity of this card could lead to an interesting bidding war as Logan’s stream hits the air.

We’ll be providing more coverage of these sales post-Pokémon day when the auctions are due to end as we expect the Pikachu Illustrator card to top the current record sale for Pokémon TCG.
