Cards Certified by CGC Trading Cards Continue to Impress in Recent PWCC Sales

Posted on 11/23/2022

A Wizards of the Coast Test Print was one of the several Pokémon cards that realized over $1,000.

A spectacular Test Print Pokémon card certified by CGC Trading Cards® realized over $4,000 in a recent PWCC Weekly Auction. The Test Print was just one of many CGC-certified trading cards graded through the partnership between CGC Trading Cards and PWCC Marketplace that sold on PWCC throughout October and November 2022.

Test Prints come in many shapes and sizes, but few are as interesting as this Dark Golbat // Dark Dugtrio, Pokémon (2000) Team Rocket Unlimited #7//6 UV Coated Spectratech Foil Test Print graded CGC 6. Wizards of the Coast printed these Spectratech foil Test Print cards to test out the holofoil patterns for the Team Rocket set, which was released in 2000. However, this Test Print card features several errors, including a miscut and a double print featuring two fronts of holofoil cards on both sides. The Golbat-Dugtrio Test Print realized $4,080 on October 23. To learn more about these Test Prints, click here.

Meanwhile, two CGC Trading Cards-certified CGC Pristine 10 cards also made waves during the October 23 auction. The first card was a Blue-Eyes White Dragon, Yu-Gi-Oh! (2022) Ghosts From the Past 2 – GFP2-EN175 – Ghost Rare – 1st Edition graded CGC Pristine 10. Blue-Eyes White Dragon is one of the most popular Yu-Gi-Oh! cards, known for its excellent gameplay mechanics and being the star of anime character’s Seto Kaiba’s deck. The 2022 Ghosts From the Past 2 expansion gives collectors a slim chance of pulling “Ghost Rare” versions of classic cards, with Blue-Eyes White Dragon being one such example. It realized $1,530 on October 23.
