Ultra-Rare Pikachu Illustrator Card going up for auction June 11th, 2022
The most expensive card ever?
Someone is set to make a very pretty penny in the near future. Heritage Auctions has announced that another Pokémon “Pikachu” Illustrator Unnumbered Promo CoroCoro Comics Trading Card is going up for auction on June 11th and 12th, and this one is PSA Grade 9 (Mint)
This is about as rare as Pokémon cards can get, as it was available only through a CoroCoro Comics illustration contest, an event that was held just three timesin 1998. 23 copies of the card were distributed in the first contest, and just eight in each of the two subsequent events.
Heritage says the card is valued at over $2.5 million, and they expect this auction to be the very first to see a single card top the $1 million mark. I guess we’ll find out if their projection is true in a couple of weeks!
