Winning Result for Pokémon

Pokémon 1999 Super Secret Battle No. 1 Trainer Card

A rare Pokémon card was recognized as a true champion when it sold for more than a few PokéCoins (the game’s currency) at a recent auction featuring Comics and Comic Art.  One of the most sought after and rarest cards produced for the Pokémon Trading Card game is a 1999 Super Secret Battle No. 1 Trainer Card.  There are only seven known cards, each of which were given to the first-place winners of regional Pokémon tournaments. The cards informed the winners of the location and gave them preferential entry to the final Secret Super Battle, which took place on August 22, 1999.  This card is graded a perfect GEM Mint 10… so it doesn’t get any better.  As the battle for the card came to a close, the victor paid $90K…not a record-breaker for Pokémon (a 1998 Pikachu card sold in 2019 for $224K), but still a winning result!
