A growing hobby specialty's most coveted piece – in the best-imaginable state of condition – is presented. This irresistably enticing "Charizard" card beckons the observer through magnetic visual qualities that challenge the adequacy of verbal description.

The Pokémon "Charizard" card has been the occasional subject of favorable comparison to another niche's icon: the 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle Rookie Card. At first, the two hungered-for pieces might seem unrelated, but, after pondering the juxtaposition for a minute, real – even compelling – parallels emerge. Both items showcase larger-than-life figures who occupy center-stage in the fantasies of countless enthusiasts. Both pieces, especially in top-grade preservation, radiate a physical beauty which effectively combines attributes that resonate even with the uninitiated. The two items occupy the highest points of sophistication, and represent the pinnacle of desire, for those who enjoy their respective realms. Finally, there are the cards' shared "intangibles," the characteristics that silently announce the significance the pieces convey, and the satisfaction they're prepared to deliver.

Graded GEM MT 10 by PSA. A sought-after "1st Edition" example. Among a total of nearly 3,000 copies recorded in PSA’s census reporting, fewer than five percent have attained this specimen's unimprovable tier. Here's an extremely desirable depiction of one of the most popular characters in the Pokémon franchise – as well as one of the genre's most prized game card subjects! A very elusive collectible, the Charizard example is always hotly pursued by devotees of the Pokémon phenomenon. Fantastic Gem Mint condition.

A "Charizard" example graded PSA GEM MT 10 recently changed hands in a recent sale for $350,000. Goldin Auctions is pleased to participate in the continued growth of value and activity in the sale of game cards. The Pokémon specialty, in particular, will benefit substantially from the company's unmatched marketing expertise in handling the industry's highest-demand items.
