One of the best looking Promos of its era.

I purchased this amazing looking 2010 Pokemon Trading Card Game HeartGold & SoulSilver Promo HGSS09 Typhlosion card for only $1.83!

2010 heartgold and soulsilver promo hgss09 typhlosion

This card was released in the 2010 Spring Collector's Tin featuring Typhlosion. I couldn't find a sealed tin for sale on the stores that I visit.

The market value for a Moderately Played copy is currently selling for about $10 on TCG Player. During the 2020-2021 Pokemon TCG craze a card in this same condition was selling for about $20.

The artwork by Wataru Kawahara is exclusive to the English release. The Japanese market also received their own exclusive artwork by the same artist, except their card was released in the 2009 SoulSilver Collection (an actual set). Featured in the background is the classic Cosmos Holo special effects that was first seen in Base Set 2 that was released in the year 2000.

Only three other standard "Typhlosion" cards was released after this card: one during the XY series, and two during the Sun & Moon series. So far the Sword & Shield series has yet to have a standard card; although it does have a standard "Hisuian Typhlosion" card to complement the Pokemon Legends: Arceus video game for the Nintendo Switch that features this Pokemon as a starter.

If you want to complete the HeartGold & SoulSilver starter set you also need to collect HGSS07 Feraligatr and HGSS08 Meganium. They too had their own 2010 Spring Collector's Tin.

Entertainment on an extreme budget.
