    I'm not sure if it really the right section to disuss this, but I think it's the closest section that I think that it could fit into that topic.

    Anyway, I was wondering about what make the charizard EX the most valuable pokemon card in exsitence, I mean, sure it is a charizard card, and it a very rare holo and all that stuff, but there are tons of other extremely rare holos out there that can be found in older and newer sets, and many of them are rarely seen in packs as much the the charizard ex card, so I was wondering what makes this card's prices go that high with a huge variety of prices as well?

    Is it just the fact that charizard is a very powerful pokemon as well as being an extremely hard holo, or did it simply turned out to be that pricy because people seem to be obsess about it, and it sort of like turned into a trend?

    Haha, it's by far not the most valuable pokemon card in existance. Who told you that?

    It's worth A LOT though. That's because it's a Charizard, it's an EX, it does 200 DMG and has 160 HP.

    Mean reason is because of numbers. People see the 200 on the card and go crazy. That's also why people pay for Wailord EX is because of a number. The cards themsleves aren't worth the price people pay for them. It like Final Fantasy VII (7) people will pay over $100 dollars for a game that many say is good but because that is all people hear sellers charge that price which actually turns people away who may want to see what the hype is about. But hey if I had any thing like that I would do the same thing, also since people post listings on ebay about "you could win Charizard EX" people fall for scams and shady sellers.

    Id say because

    1) Its Charizard one of the most popular pokemon
    2) Its EX
    3)The packs are not printed any more
    4) 200 Damge.

    In my opinion, the kiddys that want the shiniest charizard with the most HP and a 200 damage attack. And parents want to buy it for their kid, so there. It's a collector item because parents with cash have kids that want charizards.

    All of you forgot to mention that it is by far not the most valuable card in existence.

    There are so many factors.

    1. The pack is not made anymore
    2. It's Charizard
    3. The big numbers on it (200 is also used one high priced cards like Wailord and Lugia)
    4. It was harder to pull than other EXs in the set
    5. It's Charizard
    6. Other EX's in that set weren't worth as much
    7. Charizard (the card) was always worth a lot of money
    8. Did I mention that it's charizard?

    Yeah, but it's the most valuable you can get in a pack ALONE, excluding PSA 10 Charizard 1st edition base set things.

    Idunno, but titles and the prices for Charizard cards are just RIDICULOUS.

    There's an eBay listing for a Charizard d CG (a card that literally NO ONE wanted) with the listing "VERY RARE HOLO POKEMON CARD CHARIZARD 120HP EX CRYSTAL " and the seller goes on about how it is SUPER RARE and ONLY STARTING AT 99 CENTS! and such, and it is now at $10.41. Which is a lot for that card.

    Back to back posts merged. The following information has been added:

    That goes for like 80, doesn't it? I thought Charizard Ex went for like 100.

    Now i have seen a zard ex go for as little as £20 - much more my price range. I think alot of the prices for some of the cards are OTT I certainly wouldn't pay 80-100 quid for a card that is just going to sit in my folder and look pretty and I'd much rather have the Dragon TVR in my folder than zard coz at least that was a genuine short print ;)

    It's like 40 dollars. Maybe back then it went for that.

    #4 is not true. It was just as rare as every other Ex in that set. 1 in 3 boxes.

    I actually have the 1st shining charizard, do you think that if I wanna sell it for $100 someone would buy it?

    I mean I've seen about a month ago, one of them being sold for as much as $500, and no one bought it.

    No, someone would NOT buy your Charizard for 100 dollars.

    If someone asks $500 for it, it doesn't mean it's worth that much.

    Yeah I know, but someone already over here said that a 1st edition shining charizard is worth $100.

    Plus, I said that there is someone who try to sell it for $500 it because I want, but I'm just saying as how much some people would sell their cards.

    So how much do you think it's worth if I wanna sell it?
