We have covered the nuances behind the Ancient Mew Pokémon TCG card before. Therein, we discussed whether the "Ancient Mew Effect," our name for the phenomenon utilized by game designers of increasing style creep to appeal more to collectors, was good or bad. Ancient Mew was one of the first examples of this, and to this day, we still can't perfectly decipher what the card quite does. However, that does not mean this card isn't absolutely desirable to many, many collectors. Furthermore, according to the description from the auction listing on Heritage Auctions' website:

Featured here is the theatrical released promo card known as Ancient Mew. This card was given with the purchase of a movie ticket for Pokémon the Movie 2000: The Power of One. The card has been graded by CGC with the following sub-grades: centering (9), surface (8.5), corners (9.5), edges (9.5).
