Holy Grail Offering w/ pop 1 of 3 Champion Trophy Case

Every so often the market is blessed with an offering as exciting as this one. What we have here is a holy-grail Pokemon example, the 2010 Pokemon Japan World Championship Trophy Card Master's Key held firmly within an elite Beckett 9 holder. Few Pokemon cards hold the lore and desirability of the coveted master key, limited to just 36 copies ever produced, and in truth one of the few that have ever surfaced. Issued to all competitors during the 2010 Pokémon World Championships which was held at the Hilton Waikoloa Village hotel in Waikoloa Village, Hawaii in the United States from August 13 to 15, 2010. This annual event is an invite only that features 36 of the world’s greatest competitors over four different divisions; 8 in juniors, 6 in seniors, 6 in masters and 16 in video game(8 in category A and 8 in category B). Each player was provided an encased Master Trophy Key at the beginning of the event for their remarkable play over the course of the year. These keys are unique from many perspectives, featuring a new back era reverse and a high-gloss glimmering front border. Tilted in the light, the overall aesthetics of the foil border take full stage. These cards act like jewelry and glisten in a way entirely special to the Pokemon brand. The card is expertly preserved with near perfect centering, even MINT corners and strong card stock. All four corners are uniformly untouched with brilliant borders and registration. In addition, the fragile surface are perhaps the most impressive quality of this card. Perfectly preserved with no signs of wear present. Shows glowing color with thick gloss and crystal clear imagery. The fact that one of these rare master keys has now surfaced, still with its original casing, all combines to exude an investment opportunity which simply doesn't surface at this level very often. A museum worthy offering which comes with PWCC's highest recommendation. Part of an tremendous run of Pokemon examples on the market this month. Since it's release, Pokemon has quickly become one of the greatest international brands in the world, topping all others as the highest grossing media franchise of all-time with an estimated $90 billion in total revenue. With a steadily growing market, paralleled with an elite brand, these Pokemon game cards are vastly rising in value as investors heavily target them. An exciting offering which comes highly recommended by PWCC. Enjoy. One of over 21,000 cards, lots and sets up for bid in our 8th Auction of 2020.
