Out of the 12 people who placed their bids on the auction, which had a minimum bid of $25,000, one lucky bidder was able to snag the prized collection for the final price of $107,010.
The set contains rare Pokémon cards with each of them graded by the Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA) as Gem Mint 10 condition. But the most eye-catching in the entire set is probably the ultra-rare first edition Charizard.
Other valuable cards in the set include the holographic Alakazam, Blastoise and Chansey, to name a few.
All of the cards in the auctioned Pokémon set are in top condition and there are reportedly only less than 50 of these cards in the world in these conditions.
Goldin Auctions said in its listing that a similar set with Gem Mint 10 grade was also sold back in December 2017 for nearly $100,000.
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
