Pokémon Card 151 ‘Master Ball’ Mirror Variant
Those that have had the chance to open a box, you might have found a new and unique Reverse Holo card with Master Balls imprinted on them. You might be wondering, ‘what exactly are these 151 Master Ball Cards?’
To answer your question, these are actually the new and extremely rare ‘Master Ball’ Mirror cards, only found in 151. These replace the traditional Reverse Holos in other regular Pokémon Card Game sets, although the kicker is that there is only one per box. Almost every regular card from the main 151 set possesses the alternate ‘Master Ball’ Mirror, which totals up to 153. You can only imagine how difficult it will be for ardent collectors to obtain a full master set with these rare ‘Master Ball’ cards in play.
This makes the ‘Master Ball’ Pokémon cards one of the rarest cards in the whole TCG, and the aftermarket prices definitely showcase why. That being said—it’s highly likely the Pokémon Card Game won’t ever print this ‘Master Ball’ Mirror anymore, so if you’re a collector: you know what to look out for.
