If you were into Pokemon cards back in the late 90’s, you might want to dig them up and see if they’re worth anything today because they just might be. According to a recent report, an unopened box Pokémon cards from 1999 was just recently sold for $56,000 dollars, and it’s got me looking through my old trading cards lol.
Auctioned f by Huggins & Scott Auctions, the box is one the few unopened first edition limited printing English Base Set Booster Box known in existence. The auction began last month and started f with an opening bid $20,000, but there’s apparently a reason for this steep price. A pristine Charizard holo cards can sell for almost as much as that on their own, with one being sold last year for $55,000, so a box like this gives you a shot at not only one those bad boys, but a load other valuable cards inside as well.
Here’s the breakdown what comes inside the unopened box Pokemon cards, including (36) 11-card packs. Additionally, each pack will deliver (5) common, (3) uncommon, (2) Energy and (1) Rare or Foil card. Based on production, the odds pulling a foil card are nearly 1:3 packs. With 396 chances for Gem Mint 10 holos and other high-grade treasures, “the sky’s the limit” for this transcendent non-sport box.
