The collectible card authenticator, CGC Trading Cards, broadcast the purchase live through YouTube and noted that the “business card”, one of the two prototypes used in marketing and promotion that Wizards of the Coast created “to demonstrate what a Pokémon card in English would look like” to Nintendo.
This card is the only one that is known to still exist, since as these two were made, both with one side and with a blank space where the Pokémon logo would have been, but the whereabouts of the other card is unknown and it is possible. that it no longer exists, so this Blastoise is truly one of a kind.
“This is a historic moment, ladies and gentlemen”said the auctioneer before reaching the final bid. The buyer was anonymous, and the amount paid for the card thus ties the record for the highest amount paid for any English Pokémon card, according to CGC.
