Where English Base Set has 1st Edition Japanese Base Set has No Rarity. Instead of the infamous 1st edition stamp below the left-hand corner of the artwork that is the tell-tale sign of English 1st Edition, the Japanese No Rarity version of the card is missing the black star on the bottom right corner of the card. Featuring an early character design in the original video games that was scrapped for not looking tough enough, this version of Poliwrath certainly does not suffer that same fate. Featuring imposing artwork by Ken Sugimori that harkens back to the tough days of professional wrestling, this Poliwrath is no pushover. With only 67 of these cards ever reaching the hands of PSA graders, and only 3 deemed worthy of PSA 10 Gem Mint status, this is truly a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire this card. Part of one of the finest runs of Pokemon cards we've brokered, providing investors and hobbyist a rare chance to catch 'em all.
