1999 Pokemon Base Set 1st Edition Shadowless Venusaur THICK #15 PSA 10 GEM MINT
Premier Game Card
The final evolution of starter Pokémon Bulbasaur, Venusaur was featured prominently on the box of the original Japanese Game Boy game Pokémon Green before being swapped for Blastoise for the wider international release of Pokémon Blue. Featuring the subtle yet dignified artwork of legendary artist Mitsuhiro Arita, this version of the Pokémon is what most people think of when they hear its’ name. A portion of 1st Edition Base Set holographic cards were stamped with a stamp variant containing a thicker (wider) number "1" in the Edition 1 stamp. These holos are referred to as "Thick Stamp". The rest of 1st Edition Base Set holographic cards, as well as all 1st Edition cards going forward starting with the second set, Jungle, were stamped with the thin stamp style, with a narrower number "1". Base set thus presents the only opportunity to obtain holos stamped with the thick "1" stamp. This gem mint Venusaur has a THICK stamp, as opposed to the thin stamp variant. One of 134 1st Edition PSA 10 copies, this Venusaur is one of the hardest Base Set cards to find collectors who are willing to part with it; the sheer overwhelming popularity of the seed Pokémon makes it a requirement for any serious collector or investor.
