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)
#9 Chansey – 1st Edition, Base Set Holo
Another 1st Edition card from the Base Set cracks our Top 25. This one sold in October 2017 for $5,000. Another PSA 10 sold for $4500. And another PSA 10 sold for $3500. A great investment on a $5 card in 1999. 😉
First Edition Base Set Rare cards can command ridiculously high prices if they’re graded Perfect 10’s.
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 “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.
