    Pokémon Tropical Mega Battle Phone Card "Articuno" (1999) PSA GEM MT 10. Only a Legendary Pokémon could do this extremely rare card justice, the Ice/Flying Legendary Bird Pokémon Articuno. The only way to get this card was if you did not get an invitation to the main event of the 1999 Tropical Mega Battle Tournament. That's right -- no invitation! Battles were held for the non-participants where they would earn a stamp each time they battled and after they completed their stamp booklet, they were awarded one of three Pokémon Phone Cards that might include this prize. Only a few of these cards have even come to market, so don't delay! Get one today! Artwork is by Ken Sugimori. Only 11 copies have been graded by PSA to date, just five earning GEM MT 10. We know of one card in MINT 9 that has sold on eBay for $1,999.99. Comes with its original envelope.

    More Information: EDIT: Typo. Changed "completing" to "completed. Added PSA census information.
