Pokémon TCG Holy Grail: PSA 10 1st Edition Charizard Hits Auction

Heritage Sponsored

This may be one of the most iconic and historic pieces of artwork ever produced. When thinking about modern art, folks probably think of museums or people trying to sell a blank space for thousands of dollars… but when it comes to the connection between cultural significance, value increasing over time, and overall fantastic artwork, there is no piece of art that defines our time in a bigger way than Mitsuhiro Arita's Base Set Charizard. This is the definitive Pokémon TCG card and one of the most recognizable, coveted collectibles of all time. Pokémon as a franchise is the world's most popular and successful, and this piece of artwork may be it's most famous. Long before Logan Paul wore a BGS graded copy of the card around his neck, this is the card that collectors and investors alike were scrambling to get. Aside from the value, though, and aside from its place in perhaps the greatest collectible hobby of all time… it's just an absolutely beautiful piece of artwork that has influenced Pokémon sets for years and years to follow. Heritage Auctions currently has a PSA Graded Gem Mint 10 version of this iconic Pokémon TCG card up for bid for fans of slabbed cards.

Pokémon Charizard #4 First Edition Base Set Trading Card (Wizards of the Coast, 1999) PSA GEM MT 10.

Calling all Pokémon trainers! This is the card that you have all been waiting for. The card that will instantly become the centerpiece of your collection! Offered here is arguably the hottest card in the entire hobby, a 1st edition Base Set Charizard, and it's graded a PSA GEM MT 10. Yes, you read that right GEM MT 10! Charizard is the final evolved form of Charmander, and if you watched the Indigo series you might recall Charmander as kind and innocent. But as soon as he evolved into Charmeleon, everything changed. Charmeleon was rebellious, did not listen to Ash's commands, and things only got worse when he the evolved into Charizard. Cards like this don't come up for auction often so don't miss your chance to own this beauty!

Best of luck to everyone aiming to do what we all dreamed of doing as Pokémon TCG-loving kids… bringing Charizard into our collection.
