Even to sports card enthusiasts, certain cards rise from the non-sport realm to emerge as world class investment pieces. Offered here is what many perceive to be the holy-grail of Pokemon cards, holding a certain lure and desirability that is virtually unmatched. In May of 1998, the Parent/Child Mega Battle tournament was held in Japan where thousands competed in teams, all to be named the ultimate Pokemon masters. This highly prestigious Kangaskhan trophy card was given to the few teams who achieved a certain number of wins (number unknown). There have only been 46 of these cards assessed by PSA with only a eleven having earned the illustrious designation. It’s one of the few cards that features the “Pocket Monsters Card Game” logo on the back of the card as well as the front. It actively ranks as the 3rd rarest Pokemon card in the world as it was instantly retired after the competition, never reaching mass production. Since that tournament, there have only been three publicly recorded sales, the most recent being on June 13th, 2020, where a PSA 7 example brought a record $35,000. What we have here is a much rarer, never before seen PSA 10 example which currently holds no sales history within this grade, presenting a unique opportunity for investors to set the mark on what it perceives appropriate on an investment piece of this magnitude. In hand, the overall aesthetics take full stage. Showcasing a unique early Pokemon design which is instantly recognizable. The card is beautifully centered with clean borders and GEM MINT card stock. Free of any typical surface scratches, indents or wear to the highly condition sensitive surrounding periphery surrounding the card. All four corners are uniformly untouched with brilliant print, color and registration. All told, we love this card, not just for what it is but for what it represents. A museum worthy, fine-art equivalent, worthy of serious consideration from the most serious alternative investment class. Comes with PWCC's highest recommendation.
