Among the first Pokemon cards ever released, Topsun cards were released in Japan by Top-Seika in packs of their chewing gum in the late 1990s. Collectors would receive two cards randomly inserted inside their packs of gum featuring artwork by legendary Pokemon illustrator Ken Sugimori, and with only 1 pack in every box receiving a holographic Prism card. This Charizard Prism card is one of only 18 PSA 10s currently in existence and features the timeless depiction of Charizard that was featured on the covers of both English and Japanese versions of the Pokemon Red Game Boy games. With raw Prism cards becoming increasingly difficult to find and grade due to age, collectability, cardstock, manufacturer problems, an overall scarcity of sealed product, and an extraordinary difficult pull rate it is very unlikely that the population report at PSA will increase by much going forward for this card. The Topsun Prism Charizard is one of the most difficult Charizard cards to acquire graded in PSA 10 for these reasons, and is truly worthy of being in any high-end collection or investment portfolio. Part of one of the finest runs of Pokemon cards we've brokered, providing investors and hobbyist a rare chance to catch 'em all.

Easily the most exciting run we've brokered. Comes with PWCC's highest recommendation. One of over 24,000 cards, lots and sets up for bid in our 12th Auction of 2020.
