Fans, players, and collectors of the Pokémon Trading Card Game have a new reason to rejoice: Heritage Auctions, a well-known auction house based in Dallas, Texas that deals in comics, games, and collectibles, has put a rare, sealed copy of the "Brushfire" preconstructed deck from the Pokémon TCG's Base Set onto auction. This auction will run until Saturday, April 3rd at 4:50 PM Eastern Time, or 3:50 PM Central Time, so if this appeals to you, consider placing a bid before time runs out!
"Brushfire," a deck based around fire-type and grass-type Pokémon, is one of four iconic first preconstructed decks from the Pokémon TCG, with the other two being "Overgrowth" (a deck based around water-types and grass-types), "Zap!" (based around electric-types and psychic-types), and "Blackout" (based around water-types and fighting-types). In "Brushfire," the winning bidder can expect to find a presumably-Gem Mint copy of such awesome original Pokémon cards like those from the Charmander line, the Growlithe line, and the Vulpix line, with the holofoil card being a single copy of Ninetales #12!
