For many the connection started digitally, in your hands with a screen on gameboy in 1998, meeting with Professor Oak to make one of the toughest choices of your youth, which Pokemon to start your epic journey with! Fire type Charmander, evolving into mighty Charizard could be had, or plant type Bulbasuar, evolving into the toad Venusaur and lastly water type Squirtle who would evolve into the cannon toting Blastoise. Although all were popular choices, the best suited for the first gym leader Brock would be the water type Squirtle and with popular Pokemon Pikachu hiding in the grass following the first gym, many would assume that as their team following Pallet Town.

Brought from the "Digital World" to the "Real World" for the first time, the frenzy was in full effect in the form of cardboard. First edition cards hit the stores and sold out almost instantly, for many card store owners who recently saw sports cards tank it was a what most thought was a nice trend. It was much more than that, Pokemon cards became the first form of value for many as kids. Trading and barter at the lunch table, with one main objective of everyone, how to get as many first edition cards as possible. To this day that chase continues for many, but can end with the click of a button, the same way the whole adventure started in 1998 on a comforting black & white Gameboy screen.

Offered here is the most angry turtle in all of Pokemon in the third evolution of Squirtle in Blastoise. Excepting perfect condition per the experts of PSA achieving an ever difficult PSA 10 grade along with a desirable new holder. Easily one of the most Iconic cards of the 20th century and a card that should rival Charizard in price as the dust settles over time.
