Pikachu (Red Cheeks variant) 1st Edition (Thick Stamp) Base set PSA 9 MINT, vintage 1999 Pokemon TCG. You are viewing one of the rarest Base set cards ever. This is a freshly graded PSA 9 certified MINT condition 1st edition shadowless Pikachu Red Cheeks error, with the Black Back Stamps error included.
The odds of getting this error on THIS card are extremely low. There are no others like this for sale, and there aren't likely to be many others in existence at all.
Have you ever seen a listing? A small number of 1st edition Base set cards had a printing error known as Black Back Stamps imprint , where ink from the 1st Edition emblem could transfer onto the adjacent card due to insufficient dry-time early on in the printing process. The errors were noticed, and quickly stopped.
Only a small number made it into circulation. If you look closely at the back of the card for sale, you will see a mirror-image of the 1st Edition emblem in the exact spot it would normally be on the front of the card. It is EXTREMELY RARE to get one of these!Especially on a Red Cheeks Pikachu, let alone one scoring a PSA 9 MINT designation. For more information, refer to subheading Black Back Stamps on the Error Cards page of Bulbapedia. As the theory goes, Black Back Stamp imprints are likely the counterpart to at least some Grey Stamp misprints , as the ink would come off the Grey Stamp card and transfer to the Black Back Stamp card (see images for details). There are several Grey Stamp cards for sale, but almost NO Black Back Stamp cards. This is your chance to own one of the rarest Base set cards ever: the Red Cheeks Pikachu error WITH the Black Back Stamps misprint included.
You may never see one again. Card is a fresh from PSA, having been sent in literally the day before they closed submissions (sent on March 31st, 2021).For further info on stamp variations, see this link.
