    How much is an original (Not first edition) charizard worth? How about a base set 2 charizard?

    Update: I found out yesterday that my original charizard is shadowless!

    pokemonmike is right, however, since its charizard, people are 99% most likely to up the price. If you go on eBay or into a card store, i woud say a bas set 1 and 2 charizard would be worth at least $15. a 1st edition base set charizard would be worth a minimum of $50.

    I should probably mention. The original charizard has only been tuched a few times. Otherwise, it's been in a hard sleave and a plastic sleeve forever, so it looks like it's mint condition. Does that up the value?

    Of course!! Any card, much less anything THING being MINT condition makes it worth more money!!

    I think people thought it was a mint charizard.

    Usually the base set 2 Charizard is worth a couple bucks less than the original. I'd say an average price of $8 to $13.

    Does it say 1st edition on the base set charizard?

    I don't think so, as he stated in his post that it is NOT 1st edition....

    The "good condition" one went for $19.50 and the terribly roughly handled one went for $15. Seems like the shadowless ones are not worth much more... BUT WAIT!!!!!!

    Now just because this one is rated a 9 by some card rating service it sells for $97?!!?!??

    I don't get it. The people that want these things must have some kind of unreasonable obsession for 100% mint cards guaranteed.

    graded 9+ cards of any collectible area, pokemon cards, sports cards etc. will definitely up the value significantly, especially if the card is hard to find in that good of condition. psa and bgs graded cards usually have the highest values. bgs rates them the hardest so therefore highest values. 9 is MINT and a 10 is an ABSOLUTELY FLAWLESS card, not easy to find. What most people consider "mint" probably would not reach a 9, but maybe an 8 if looked at by a human eye

    Mine is, as I can see, flawles. I probably need to look harder, but it has been kept in a hard sleeve forever. Nearly untouched, and shadowless.

    if you think it would be a good investment, you can look into getting it graded by either psa or bgs

    Chase is right. The grading is something like 10.00 per card, which in the long run, may make char worth more overall!

    And thats not even 1st Edition!

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...lgo=DR&its=S%2BI%2BSS&itu=ISS%2BUCI%2BSI&otn=

    $397.95, just because of that one little change in the card.
    However, this is a buy it now price, so I think this auctioneer has the wrong price.

    I know you don't have the 1st edition charizard, however this is just to show how the price changes in collectors because of its edition.

    One time I sold one of my two 1st edition Charizards (about near mint condition) for about $78, and I know that the guy asking nearly $400 won't get that. It is ridiculous.

    But my other 1st Ed Charizard I didn't want to sell because I figured I wouldn't get much for it based off of the last sale and the poor condition of the second. I don't know why but being 1st edition makes it cooler to me. The colors are so dark I like it! Plus it is cool to have the coolest card from the first ever release of Pokemon cards. I guess that is why other people want the 1st edition so much more.
