PSA 10 1st Edition Red Cheeks Pikachu Sold

It was a sad day on the 31st of August, 2016. I had to part ways with my PSA 10 1st Edition Red Cheeks Pikachu 58/102. Yes that’s right folks, this is my item that sold. I have had it for many years, bought it off another collector who was getting rid of his collection. I put it up in March and had forgotten about it. Thinking it would never sell, it sat silently on my shelf blending in with the rest of my collection. I got a message from a collector on the other side of the world from me.

“Hey man, I choked on my breakfast seing this and i’m very interested in it. Was wondering if you shipped to Sweden”

After 2130 views, 43 watchers and a good laugh, I sold it for 399 AUD and shipped off to Sweden.

What makes this card so special?

There is only 84 PSA 10 1st Edition Red Cheeks Base Set Pikachu’s in existence. How’s that for rare?

The Base Set Pikachu has two variations, a red cheek and a yellow cheek version. The red cheek version is a highly sought after print from the 1st Edition and early Unlimited Base set print runs.

Since I sent it off I have sent multiple messages to the buyer, he assures me it will be well looked after.
