For many Millennials, the original 1999 Pokemon video/card games remain a staple of their childhood, providing what seems like a lost art in a nostalgic feeling. With kids a like trading cards at the lunch table, or virtually via Gameboy's connect cable, it was apparent from the beginning that Pokemon is not only special, but part of a generation. For a generation such as the Millennials it signals the end of the tangible toy age and the beginning of the virtual age as no other item became as popular or as connective as Pokemon in years following.

Even more impressive is the fact that Pokemon remains popular today and just like Star Wars, is arguably more popular than ever with kids and adults taking part in the different games that the vast World of Pokemon offers. Some argue that it will become as important to modern collecting as the 1986/87 Fleer basketball set or the 1909-11 T206 White Border insert set.

Each card has been graded GEM MT 10 by PSA. Presented is a 103-card complete set of 1999 Pokemon 1st Edition non-sports cards. Goldin Auctions is proud to present a second complete PSA GEM MT 10 conditioned set of these desirable non-sports cards at auction. While the cards have rounded corners, they are still very difficult to attain in GEM MINT condition. In fact, many cards have population counts below fifty in the aforementioned condition. Demand for this set in high-grade continues to grow. For example: the key card in the set - #4 Charizard - represents a vibrant progression that saw a recent example sell for nearly three times the $8,800 sale price in November 2016. As a point of reference on value, a similar-conditioned complete set of these (all in PSA GEM MT 10!) sold for nearly $100,000 in Goldin Auctions' December 2017 Holiday sale. Stunning Gem Mint condition throughout.
