PokemonBlastoiseNo Rarity Symbol Holo 1st Edition #009 ErrorVery Rare
Stunning no rarity symbol is the holy grail of the Pokémon world! Its the true first edition very first Pokemon cards back in 1996. This stunning example is probably the finest condition ungraded raw version out there. With most experts saying most cards if not all of the charizards have been accounted for in no rarity in some way or another via Psa/BGS or damaged and have been available a long time. Pokemon cards were released and printed by Media Factory in Japan on 20th October 1996. Prior to release, advertisements, print and media showed cards with no rarity symbols. Many of the cards contain errors: Venusaur, Charizard, Raichu and Gastly. Before no rarity was mainstream collectors noticed the difference as far back as 2000. The above information helps prove that no rarity was the first edition or the first wave of the Japanese Base Set. Initially, Media Factory did not intend to print Pokemon cards with any rarity symbols and this is evident in all marketing materials prior to release. At some point it was decided that all cards receive a rarity designation with the exception of basic energy cards. No rarities MUST be contained in the the first product released starting on 20 October 1996. There are only two products released from 20 October 1996: the Starter Deck and Booster Pack. The first version of the Starter Deck is the 104-01 postcode + 1st edition rulebook. The first version of the Booster Pack is referred to as the short pack. Storefront posters show both Starter Deck and short pack booster (note the poster features the 1st edition rulebook with 3d text effect). The best chance of pulling no rarities is to open up product that is as close to being released on 20 October as possible. Additionally, for the short packs we can determine an approximated production range until the release of Fossil which did not include short packs; between 20 October 1996 – 21 Jun 1997. The main issue is that the cards were on such a limited print over a short space of time that it is unlikely to even receive no rarity cards even from one of the early packs unless you could guarantee its production date. The likelihood is that there was a much shorter window than the 8 month window we have narrowed it down to so you can imagine what the chances of finding these all these years later. Any questions please do not hesitate to ask. There are cards individually as well as many complete sets, my entire lifes collection will be up for sale on here over time. All the cards I sell are authentic. If you would like any additional photos please do not hesitate to contact me.
