Most Valuable Pokemon Cards Countdown

We’re closing out the last 25 days of 2017 with a Countdown of the Top 25 Most Valuable Pokemon Cards. (Based on actual “Sold” prices on eBay this year) 

#17 – Legendary Collection Reverse Foil Charizard
Legendary Collection Reverse Foil Charizard

For some reason, this card makes me feel old.  I remember when this set came out, and I thought, “Why are they reprinting Base Set already again?!”  Now this reprint set is already 15 years old!  And I wish I had invested a little more heavily in reverse foils.  

In September 2017 this card sold for $2425.  Three other PSA 10’s also sold for over $1800.  This card actually looks much cooler in person that it does on screen.  

This is the only card from Legendary Collection that cracks our Top 25.  But many of the other reverse foils in that set can sell for hundreds of dollars.  Gengar, Blastoise and Pikachu all sold for $600 recently.  

Some quick notes on our rankings:  These are all cards you could have reasonably collected in the United States. These are cards that appeared in Booster Boxes, Booster packs, Leagues, and/or Starter Sets. Pokémon TCG fans/players could have plausibly obtained these cards through auctions, trades and/or blind luck pulls. There are no cards “prize cards” in our list.  All values are based on actual sales of Pokemon Cards on eBay in 2017. Most of these cards are Professionally-Graded, Gem Mint cards, which are independently certified on their condition. Here’s an article on Graded Pokemon Cards if you don’t know what Graded Cards are.
