Hey everyone! So I’m looking for any info that people have on why this card in particular is reaching the prices it has recently. It was not a difficult card to get, there’s almost 800 pop in PSA 10, yet recently eBay market value is around 2m JPY and Japanese market is pricing it around 2.5-2.9m JPY.
I’ve been scouring the internet but simply can’t find what is causing this boom, which seems to be more pronounced than other non-waifu cards.
It’s a great card. 3 Kanto starters and pikachu and a 20th anniversary emblem. I picked one up a couple years ago. It’s one of my favorite cards. Even with pop 800 and the 2-3x increase in price over the last year a ton haven’t come to market, which is a good sign a lot are owned by collectors who truly love the card.
