However, he gave the Pokémon card not to everyone he came across that day. So should the number of Ishira GX promo card only be 30-60 copies. The map, which was largely distributed to the employees, also smells not being sold on for a long time.

    From one trainer to the next. The origin of the No. 1 trainer card is just as mysterious as its dark design.

Each winner of these individual tournaments should have the No. 1 trainer card have been presented so that they can enter the super secret final tournament. Since there are only seven of these cards there is that Pokémon card incredibly rare and precious. Six of the seven cards are also said to have received the PSA rating 10.

    Pokémon cards: Top 10 most expensive cards - 4th place: Kangama Family Event (value: approx. 125,000 euros)

    Kangama and the child in the bag. The perfect face for a family tournament was probably Japan in 1998. In that Pokémon tournament children and their parents could compete against other families. All winning families were with the Kangama Family Event Card rewarded. Therefore only very few should cards of this type in circulation and only eleven of them have so far been given the PSA rating 10.

That was forgiven map originally to the three winners, as well as twenty other participants with particularly good drawings at the first illustration competition between 1977 and 1978 in Japan.

    Pokémon cards: Top 10 most expensive cards - 2nd place: Prototype Turtok (value: approx. 250,000 euros)

    Would you like to cool down? Prototype Turtok can help with this. In a hot auction, the Pokémon card auctioned for $ 300,000. Why for so much money? This card is amazing preciousas they are one of two Test cards is that back in the early days of Pokémon cards has been printed. So it was actually just a first draft of a concept for what was to follow in later years. So is the back of the map also not printed. We'd love to know where the other one is Pokémon card is hidden, but it seems as if it has been swallowed by the ground. Probably some person doesn't know anything about their happiness and that map stews somewhere. Another variant of Turtok, was the highlight of the stream from Trymacs and Papaplatte, when both streamers together broke the horror camp record on Twitch.

    Pokémon cards: Top 10 most expensive cards - 1st place: 1st Edition Charizard Holo without shadow (value: approx. 307,000 euros)

    We have reached our number 1. And who should it be other than the popular one? Charizard in the 1st edition in Holo. The great value this map probably comes about because that Pokémon is the fan favorite and has been number 1 of the most popular for years Pokémon occupied. And who can blame the fans for it? A cool designed dragon that breathes fire, refined with a shadowless one Hologram on a Pokemon card is simple perfection. That this hologram the map has no shadow, however, is the fault of a simple typographical error that was later corrected. But the version without the shadow is extremely rare and coveted like no other Pokémon card.

    The price of the Pokémon card amounts to a whopping $ 369,000, which is roughly the equivalent of 307,000 euros. Papaplatte also made a fortune with the Pokemon card. However, it was his map, an "ordinary" Charizard holo. Still had Twitch streamer pulled the main prize at the opening of Logan Paul. His map was estimated at around 65,000 euros. The Pokémon hype thus seems to continue unchecked. We are curious to see which ones are rare cards next to be drawn or sold and potentially sneaking into the top 10.
