    I was just goofing around on trollandtoad.com and I bumped into Machamp from Base set. The site stated that an 1st Edition Machamp was like a dollar (probably because you could have gotten it in the 2-Player starter deck), but a perfectly mint non-1st edition Machamp was 100 dollars. I was like "suspicious WOW" face. I googled Charizard from Base set and the same condition Charizard was 20 dollars. I figure 100 bucks is a lot, but how much does this kind of Machamp actually cost?

    1st ed Machamps are really common because they came in the starter deck. I don't think the starter deck is worth much (I have one sealed if they are).

    I don't even know where the non-1st ed Champs come from.

    From a regular Base Set booster pack.

    No.

    There were no Machamps at all in the booster packs. The only non 1st edition Machamps are also non-holo and have "Trainer Deck A" on the back in red writing.

    They come from the Trainer Deck A which was given out in some leagues to demonstrate the game. I have no idea what the card would be worth individually, although I have heard values of a sealed deck being around $500.

    The starter deck ones are worth about a dollar if they are shadowed. If they are shadowless, they are worth a bit more. All of these have the 1st edition stamp.

    I saw regular Machamps without any specific writing. Unfurtunately, none were mint.

    Are you certain that they weren't Base Set 2 or Legendary Collection?

    Yes, I'm 100% sure. I can get one of them (although they'll not be mint).

    Then you should, if you are 100% sure they are genuine, Base set, holo, non 1st edition Machamps,

    I still doubt their existence until we get proper evidence.

    Yes, if they are everything I mentioned above (genuine, Base set, holo, non 1st edition Machamps) in English.

    No, they're not, because they're fake.

    There were no printings of non-1st edition holo Base Set Machamps.

    Sorry, you're mistaken.
    You will find that the card you saw was a Legendary Collection Machamp.

    No legendary collection...

    What's the difference in prices between the sealed one Shadowed vs the opened one shadowed? I've seen a ton of them open, but occasionally find them sealed.

    Not much difference.

    The only way you would have a Base Machamp without the 1st Edition symbol would be if it were non holo and have a red border and

    Trainer Deck
    A


    on the back. Or if it were Japanese.
