There is a Pokemon card that's about to go for a whole lot of money at auction. The 1st Edition #4 “Charizard” card has drawn comparison to the legendary Topps 1952 Mickey Mantle rookie card in how much its sought after and how expensive it can be.

With 9 days remaining to bid the high bidder is currently offering $170k for it and Goldin Auctions notes that one of these cards recently changed hands for $250k so this one is likely to approach that price.

As far as rarity goes this is the second-most rare Pokemon card behind the No. 1 trainer card and more rare than the Pikachu Illustrator & pre-release Raichu. You can find the auction here.
