The 1999 Pokémon Charizard #4, 1st Edition
When Pokémon trading cards made their U.S. debut with the 1999 1st Edition Base Set, buyers had enough trouble getting their hands on a single card from the limited release. But for a lucky few, they found a “Holo” variant of the coveted Charizard waiting for them inside their packs. This 1st Edition Holo Charizard has been at the center of the recent Pokémon craze, with rapper Logic making headlines in October when he nabbed one at auction, paying over $220,000. Shortly thereafter, a PSA 10 grade card sold for over $350,000 at PWCC Auctions in December. Our #99CHARZRD is 1 of only 121 1999 1st Edition Base Set Holo Cards. It is graded a perfect PSA GEM MT 10, with none graded higher. Investors who are registered on Rally will be able to participate on March 26th and have a chance to own equity in a piece of Pokemon history! Sign up today to get early access.
$350,000 • $10.00 per share
OPENING ON 3/26!
VICE contributor Jason Koebler summed up the explosive rise of this card in an article from November, recounting his own experience selling a 1st Edition Charizard card for $150 on Ebay as a kid: “Over the years I have watched in horror as the value of a 1st Edition Charizard has skyrocketed from that of an extremely nice dinner to that of, say, a nice house.”
