Finally the rarest Pokemon card of all time has arrived!!!! The Pikachu Illustrator.
This card, know as "the Illustrator" or the "Pikachu Illustrator" because of its picture with Pikachu holding a paintbrush, was given out to the winner of a special drawing contest in Japan, back in 1997. The contest ran 3 times during 1997. Although nobody knows for sure how many of these cards were actually produced, the most accurate estimate seems to be 6 cards made. The card says "Illustrator" instead of "Trainer" on the top of the card. It shows Pikachu holding a paintbrush and has two stars at the bottom of the card indicating its rarity. It also has a paintbrush logo on the bottom of the card instead of a series mark. This card is by far the most highly prized promo card of all time. It was only made in Japanese and most collectors would die to have it. I have actually only seen 2 of these in my 12 years of selling Pokemon cards. A once in a lifetime find.
I also have many more ultra rare Pokemon cards available. I also got several new plush toys, stickers, rare 1997 Bandai cards, and much more available.
