Most Valuable Pokemon Cards of 2017 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) 

#21 – Clefairy, Base Set, 1st Edition
Clefairy - 1st

In 2017, a 1st Edition copy of Clefairy sold for $2125.  It was graded as Gem Mint by the PSA.  First Edition Base Set Rare cards can command ridiculously high prices if they’re graded Perfect 10’s.  A Beckett 9.5 also sold for $1700 recently.  

As you can see, 1st Edition Base Set foils are dominating our Top 25.  I promise the next card will be from another set.  

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.
