Dark Charizard 1st Edition Holo

Must read

What Makes The Skyridge Holographic Crystal Charizard So Valuable

Holo Swirl 1st edition Dark Charizard

Next up we have an extremely unique and much sought-after card. The Crystal Charizard from Skyridge, is different to its predecessors because of its colour, design and artwork. Featured a cartoon-esq drawing that almost pops off the card, were also treated to a pale background and eye-catching crystal holographic area.

Released in 2003, Skyridge was a good four years beyond the initial Pokemon boom, and one of the last few WOTC area sets to come out. As such, sealed product is incredibly hard to find, and mighty expensive if you do. Needless to say, this ultimate chase card now costs a lot of money, with recent eBay listings advertised north of £20k.

Wrapping Up Where Do We Go From Here

So there you have it!

The rarest, most expensive Charizard card purchases from this past year.

As market prices begin to correct themselves, weve seen concerning drops in some of the cards above.

Ill be the first to admit I probably overpaid for a few cards in 2020!

But if you take a long-term view on Pokemon cards like I do, its not the end of the world.

Am I confident prices will one day reach these heights again? Sure am!

If your strategy was a quick pick-and-flip, then it probably needs a rethink.

Ultimately though, theres nothing wrong with picking up the cards you love, and growing your collection.

Here are some cool Charizard additions to my collection in 2020 .

What Makes The Japanese Topsun Holographic Prism Charizard So Valuable

Now for something so rare, its hard to even price!

Interestingly, Japanese Topsun Pokemon cards came in packs with chewing gum. There were two sticks and gum, and two cards per pack. Out of the 150 cards, 16 were Prism cards, which is the holofoil design you see above.

Unlike early WOTC boosters where the chance of pulling a holographic were 1 in 3, the chances of getting a prism card in Topsun packs were only 1 in 40!!! Now we begin to understand just how rare the Charizard is, especially in a PSA 10! In fact, only 18 of them exist, and I doubt that number will ever change. At the time of writing, theres a PSA 9 on eBay for over £13k.

What Makes The 1st Edition Base Set Charizard So Valuable

1ST EDITION Dark CHARIZARD HOLO Team Rocket 21/82 NM ...

Lets start with the holy grail of Pokemon cards, the 1st Edition Base Set Charizard. This is where it all began folks. With recent sales of PSA 10 variants topping $300k, what wed all give for a time machine now huh?! Even just five years ago, these were selling for around $10k. At the time, that seemed crazy money, but it looks like chump change now right?!

Anyway, missed opportunities aside, the iconic design has the power to teleport any big kid back to their childhood in a flash. Its the ultimate nostalgic card and any lucky owner should be proud to have it in their collection.

What Makes The Pocket Monsters Carddass Prism Charizard So Valuable

Propping up our list is a very interesting Charizard card.

Produced by Bandai in 96 and 97, these Pocket Monster cards were distributed through vending machines in Japan. Costing 100 Yen for 5 cards, or 20 for individual cards, we get a fascinating insight into what life might have been like for Japanese kids during Pokemons early years.

Slightly similar to the Topsun card above, the rarest cards had a prism holofoil background. However, as we can see, the design is much more symmetrical.

With only 58 PSA 10s in existence, the value of the Carddass Prism Charizard isnt driven so much by nostalgia, instead its more about owning a piece of Pokemon history from the place it all began.

One Of My Most Valuable Cards From My Collection Holo 1st Edition Dark Charizard

I picked this same card up at a shop for $4 over two years ago. Got it graded back 9 too! Also snagged a 1st ed Blastoise for $4. Best purchase I ever made haha

Wow that’s great. Honestly a large amount of my cards I got in a binder from a flea market as a kid for 20$.

Very nice! I also have a first edition dark charizard, just in way worse condition lol. Also have an unlimited holo zard, but hes got a bend in the corner

Ouch! Yeah luckily I always had my cards in binders.

Very nice. I have a non holo 1st edition Dark Zard that is still one of my favorites.

Awesome! I sent mine to get grades and it got a 9. Pretty stoked.

Mine is sitting solidly in my pro binder, and if anyone tells you, you have to get it graded, don’t listen to ’em unless you want to! Such a nice Zard! Congrats!

I got a my holo 1st ed zard for 35 bucks back in 2017 when I was putting my 1st ed team rocket set together, crazy how quickly values change!

You should get it psa graded

You should get it psa graded

I have a first edition holo dark blastoise and holy hell am I happy with that, if I saw one of these irl I might have a heart attack out of fear I could damage it

What Makes The 1st Edition Neo Destiny Shining Charizard So Valuable

This Charizard card is special for several reasons. Firstly, this is the first time WOTC introduced the shining design to their holographic cards, making the design totally unique. Next, the Neo sets were the last time they printed first edition cards. Its a little stamp, but it makes he huge difference in terms of value. And lastly, theres only 201 PSA 10s in existence. All of these factors combined make the 1st Edition Neo Destiny Shining Charizard a hugely sought-after piece for high-end collectors.

What Makes The Japanese No Rarity Symbol Charizard So Valuable

2000 Pokemon Rocket 1st Edition Holo Dark Charizard #4 PSA 10 GEM MINT – ENDS 1/27/2021

Collectors go mad for misprint or error cards. And for our next Charizard, we have to take our time machine all the way back to 1996. No Rarity Symbol cards from the Japanese Base Set are widely considered the equivalent of the English 1st Edition. These cards are from the very first print run, and as the same suggests, they didnt have a rarity symbol in the bottom right corner.

Although theres little documentation of when rarity symbols were introduced to the Japanese Base Set, it wasnt particularly long after no rarity cards were released. As such, theyre incredibly rare and valuable. Combine that scarcity with our main man Charizard, and only 6 PSA 10s in existence, its no wonder this is one of the most expensive Charizards one could ever wish to acquire.

Trainwreck Unpacks Incredibly Rare 1st Edition Pokmon Card During Stream

Pokémon is an incredibly popular game with over 20 years of history, and some Pokémon cards often have an insane value, especially those cards coming from the 1st Edition booster packs, released in the United States on 9th January 1999 and known as the Base Set.

Sealed First Edition Base Set booster box

For the purpose of the stream, they had a completely sealed First Edition Base Set booster box ready for opening.

To understand the value collectors give to the First Edition, one such booster box was recently sold for a record US$198,000.

If they are in pristine condition some of the 1st Edition cards may cost tens of thousands of dollars. And even more, if they are a holographic version of those cards.

And from the very first pack they’ve opened, fortune smiled upon them. Mizkif opened a non-holo Dark Charizard from it, but that was just the beginning.

Opening the second pack was when the really hit the jackpot.

As you can see in the video above, Trainwreck unboxed a holograpghic Dark Charizard, a 1st Edition card which is valued at US$5,000 if it’s rated PSA 10, and the worth is around US$2,500 if the rating is PSA 9.

What Makes The 1st Edition Holographic Dark Charizard So Valuable

Shortly after the release of Base Set, we had Jungle, then Fossil. Base Set 2 was was met with disappoint among fans hoping for something new. Thankfully, the 2000 Team Rocket set hit a home run, with edgier artwork and the introduction of Dark Pokemon.

The 1st Edition Dark Charizard is an iconic card. Its the first time wed seen something a bit different from Mitsuhiro Aritas OG design. This time Ken Sugimori opted for devilish looking Charizard that almost looks like hes considering whether to attack, or fly off into the night sky. The more you look at it, the more youre immersed into the scene. It really is clever artwork and widely appreciated among fans.

Because of its popularity, theres a decent number of PSA 10s out there, but still, there are 3x as many PSA 9s.

For many, myself included, Team Rocket is one of the best vintage Pokemon sets, and as such, Dark Charizard will always be a highly valuable and desired card.

What Makes The Legendary Collection Reverse Holo Charizard So Valuable

Next up we have a card that divides options the reverse holographic Charizard from 2002s Legendary Collection. Some people love the fireworks holo background, others think its all too in-your-face. Personally, I love it. Its one of my favourite cards!

Interestingly though, what makes it so valuable, aside from the iconic Charizard artwork, is how difficult it is to grade in a PSA 10. As you can see below, only 75 exist. This is because theres an extra level of complexity when grading this card, as the large holographic area was often susceptible to print lines. Combine that with possible edgewear, corner nicks and scratches, its no surprise theres some a low population of PSA 10s.

What Makes The Shadowless Charizard So Valuable

As you may know, after 1st Edition, and before the Unlimited Base Set print run came Shadowless Pokemon cards. Although not quite as valuable as 1st Edition, because Shadowless cards were only printed for a short time, they are highly sought after too.

Interestingly, at the time of writing, only 54 copies of the Shadowless Charizard exist in a PSA 10, compared to 120 in 1st Edition. As you would expect, this makes them incredibly valuable and a wonderful investment piece for any collector.

What Makes The Unlimited Base Set Charizard So Valuable

Its hard to create a list of the most valuable Charizard cards, and not include every variant of Base Set! So of course, we must include the Unlimited Base Set Charizard.

Widely considered as the most graded card in Pokemon history, its not the PSA population that drive its value, its the sheer nostalgia. This is the card that every kid wanted, and many were lucky to have in 99.

Being able to own one again is something many collectors truly value, and as such, continues to drive prices higher and higher. Even PSA 9s fetch several thousand pounds on eBay. Its the price we pay to relive our childhood I guess
