Dozens of CGC-certified Pokémon Cards Highlight Upcoming Catawiki Auction

Posted on 2/23/2024

Catawiki, the most-visited curated online marketplace in Europe specializing in collectibles, has partnered with CGC to host an auction full of Pokémon cards exclusively certified by CGC Cards.

A Metal Charizard certified by CGC Cards is turning heads in an upcoming Catawiki auction. The Charizard is just one of the dozens of CGC-certified cards being offered in Catawiki’s Pokémon Cards Auction (Catawiki x CGC) sale, which is set to end on March 1, 2024.

Catawiki is the most-visited curated online marketplace in Europe specializing in special objects, including collectibles of all kinds. The auction house is extremely selective with the products it offers on its website — each item is appraised by one of Catawiki’s 240+ in-house experts before being featured on the auction block to ensure bidders receive the highest-quality collectibles. Together, with Catawiki’s quality standards and the CGC Guarantee, collectors may rest assured that CGC-certified cards purchased from Catawiki are of the highest standard of quality.

A Charizard, Pokémon (2021) Celebrations – Classic Collection – 4/102 Gold Metal – Ultra Premium Collection promo graded CGC Gem Mint 10 (lot 80048187) is the centerpiece of the upcoming sale. When Pokémon celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2021, the Pokémon Company released a limited TCG boxed set: the Celebrations Ultra-Premium Collection. This set featured reprints of classic Pokémon cards from past series, 25 new cards, collectible items and two commemorative metal cards: Pikachu and Charizard.
