Heritage Auctions told CNBC that they knew the card would be valuable, noting that a previous card of the same kind was sold back in 2000 for $23,000.
“The Pikachu Illustrator Card was given in January of 1998 to winners of the CoroCoro Comic Illustration Contest,” Barry Sandoval, director of operations for comics at Heritage Auctions, said in a statement to CNBC.
“Only 20 to 39 copies of this card were released, 10 of which are graded in top condition and it is unknown how many still remain with the public.”
