103-piece collection includes rarities like a first-edition Charizard
Pokémon Trading Card Game collectors know a complete 1999 set can command a hefty price depending on the condition and other specific factors. Illustrating this perfectly, one particular collection was sold via Goldin Auctions over the weekend, and it went for a whopping $107,010.
All 103 cards in the set were graded Gem Mint 10 by the Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA), so you won't find too many sets out there in such pristine condition. Toss in absurdly pricy rarities like a mint first-edition Charizard—as well as holographic Blastoise, Chansey, and Alakazam cards—and you can start to see some of the reasoning behind that lofty final bid.
Look at all these fah-reakin' 'Mon!
And, lest we forget...
Anyone here sitting on a collection worth a mint?
