I was nine years old, but 19 years later, I still vividly remember the day I received my first pack of Pokémon cards. I got emotional and tears of joy hang delicately from my eyes. That’s why my grandparents remain special to this day.
May they rest in peace😪.
The next three minutes were tense as I opened the cards and hoped to unveil my most coveted card: the Charizard.
Bang! there it was, my lovely Charizard 🤗, with its wings wide. Since then, I have collected booster packs some of which have the rarest Charizard.
After seeing my collections, most people ask me: what booster packs have Charizard? Well, sit tight because we are going to unveil not only the booster packs with Charizard but also those with the rarest type.
Which booster pack has the rarest Charizard?
The Base set-1999 First Edition pack has the rarest Charizard- the Shadowless First Edition Charizard. It was produced in 1999 and was the very first edition of Pokémon cards.
It is considered the most famous Pokémon pack in the Trading Card Game (TCG).
Being the hardest to find, it is the most valuable Pokémon pack among the collectors. The pack is so rare that the ungraded sells for up to $3000 while the grade 10 can sell at a whopping $300,000.
In 2020 Logan Paul bought a first edition Charizard at $420,000 😲 which is believed to be the highest transaction for any single card in the entire world. Such high prices indicate that the first edition of the booster pack is the rarest.
