This week we're highlighting some of our favourite lots from Ewbank's Trading Cards: Pokemon & Yu-Gi-Oh! Auction which took place on the 13th July 2022. We dedicate this week's featured lots to the memory of Yu-Gi-Oh! creator Kazuki Takahashi, who passed away on the 6th July.
Kicking off this week's featured lots is this original 1st edition booster box of the 2007 Yu-Gi-Oh! expansion Gladiator's Assault. Containing 24 booster packs, sealed with the Konami wrapper, the expansion offers the most 'Secret Rare' cards of any booster set to date. It includes cards used in the anime by classic characters like Yugi Muto, Yami Bakura, and Seto Kaiba.
Second up this week we're shining the light on this near mint condition Charizard Reverse Holo Skyridge 146/144. The iconic card is from the last set produced by Wizards of the Coast and surpassed its estimate of £250 - £350 for a hammer price of £550. The card comes from the third and final main expansion of the e-Card Series, and was the final series to include Kadabra cards.
Next up on this week's featured lots is this sealed Yu-Gi-Oh! Light & Darkness Power Pack from 2007. The special edition pack contains two Dark Revelation 4 booster packs, one Light and Darkness Dragon promotional card, and a bonus extract from the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX manga. The Dark Revelation 4 booster packs combine the Cybernetic Revolution, Elemental Energy, Shadow of Infinity and Enemy of Justice booster packs, alongside five other Secret Rare out-of-print cards, and was not released outside of the United States.
Up next we have this excellent Near Mint to Played bundle containing a number of cards from the Base Set to Skyridge. Classed as a real treasure trove of cards, it contains everything from 4th print Base Sets, 1st Edition Fossil, Neo Genesis and more. With over 300 commons and uncommons, as well as rare holos from the EX Dragons, EX FireRed, and EX LeafGreen, and a Reverse Holo Meowth from the Legendary Collection, there's a card for every collector here.
Our final lot in this week's featured lot is this PSA Gem Mint 10-graded Rainbow Secret Rare edition of the Moltres, Zapados & Articuno tag team card, taken from the Hidden Fates expansion pack. The card is the first Tag Team Trio to appear in any set, combining three Legendary Pokemon to create one of the series' most powerful cards.
