Just seven copies of the Pokémon Super Secret Battle “No. 1 Trainer” Trainer Promo Hologram Trading Card (1999) are known to exist in the world, and of those, six of them carry a PSA Gem MT 10 grade. They were gifted to the winners of seven regional Pokémon tournaments, making this an exceedingly rare prize among collectors.
In case you can’t read Japanese, the card says: “The Pokémon Card Game Official Tournament’s champion is recognized here, and this honor is praised. By presenting this card, you may gain preferential entry into the Secret Super Battle.” This tournament was so tournament that the competitors only discovered the location of the final round, which took place Aug. 22, 1999, in Tokyo, after winning a regional tournament. It’s headed to the Heritage Auctions’ Comics & Comic Art Auction July 9-12 in Dallas, Texas, and expected to fetch over $100,000 USD.
