Charizard was long considered the most powerful card in the entirety of the Pokémon TCG. With a hit point score of 120, unparalleled in the early days of the game by any other Pokémon besides Chansey, and a very powerful Fire Spin attack, Charizard was the talk of the playground in the late 1990s. According to the item's auction listing on Heritage Auctions' website:

This card is so hot right now that you can feel the heat coming off Charizard's flamethrower attack. Charizard is arguably one of the most popular Pokemon of the series — c'mon, who doesn't like a fire breathing dragon! Charizard is the final evolved form of Charmander, and if you watched the Indigo series you might recall the kind and innocent Charmander, but as soon as he evolved into Charmeleon was a defiant Pokémon that adamantly ignored Ash's commands, and when he evolved into Charizard things only got worse. The card has been graded by CGC with the following sub-grades: centering (9), surface (6), corners (8), and edges (8). The artwork is by Mitsuhiro Arita.
