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)
#7 Mewtwo – 1st Edition, Base Set – $6100
A beautiful Psychic card from the original Base Set. This first edition Mewtwo sold for $6100 in October 2017. Another Mewtwo sold for $4500 in December. First Edition Base Set Rare cards can command ridiculously high prices if they’re graded Perfect 10’s.
According to the PSA Pop Report, there are 66 1st Edition Mewtwo’s in circulation right now.
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.
