Charizard is considerably more valuable than Alakazam right now (and Charizard always has been more valuable - it's Pokemon Power and its HP and its attack made it so in demand), the only reason Alakazam was listed first is because the sets would list the Pokemon by alphabetical order within the rarity applied to them. Alakazam just happened to come first alphabetically, hence why its collector's number is 1 in the Base Set, and Zapdos's collector's number is 16 in the Base Set. And that's why Beedrill, a step down in rarity from the rare holo cards like Charizard, Alakazam, and Zapdos, has a collector's number of 17.
