A case of First Edition Base Set Booster boxes has been transacted for an undisclosed record amount that is said to be the most expensive Pokemon deal in history.
We previously reported, the record sale of a single box reaching $450,000 last month in a private sale via Instagram. This case is a sealed cardboard box containing six First Edition Base Set Booster boxes – making the estimated sale value to be north of $2 million.
In February, YouTuber Logan Paul purchased six First Edition Base Set Booster Boxes for $2 million – this sale looks to eclipse that combined total due to the rarity of finding six together rather than individually.
With a worldwide hobby like Pokemon TCG, it’s always difficult to determine the population whether that be highly sought-after trophy cards or booster boxes. That being said, this case is the first to be revealed during the spike in popularity of the hobby within the last 12 months.
This begs the question, how many of these cases are in existence? The parties involved state that this box is one of a kind. This can neither be confirmed nor denied yet with the continued rise in the rarity of these 1999 boxes the chance of finding a sealed certified case is almost impossible.
This article will be updated with more information on this most expensive Pokemon TCG deal as it is released.
