I was SO surprised to find this... of all the places and shops in the world I could have walked in to, it was in a little local shop that sold like MTG cards and Warhammer LOL. It was almost kinda a really freaky out moment, the only 1 in the whole world AND I HELD IT AWYIS.
For anyone who doesn't know what it is, it was the 1st prize trophy given out in Japan for the first TCG tournament, must have been like somewhen in the 90's.
I expected it to be really heavy it looks like real brass/gold. But its made of a resin. I can't tell you how beautiful it was in person, the lady was kind enough to let me hold it and take photos.
I for one had never seen it, apparently there was a Blastoise one for runner up but no one knows where it is. The lady who ran the shop personally was there and bought it off the winner, and if I was £13,500 richer i could have bought it LOL.
But I thought it would be cool to show on the comm, I for one didn't even know it existed, I'm sure it would be a grail for a TCG or Charizard collector! :O I for one would love it brb going to earn 13k bye.
