Another eventful week in Pokémon TCG. We’ve decided to condense the week’s happenings into one easy to read article with links if you’re interested to learn more. This is our Pokémon TCG Weekly Recap 2.
You’ve probably already heard, Logan Paul purchased six First Edition Base Set Booster Boxes for a combined price of $2,000,000 – The packs for his box break on Pokémon Day, 27 February 2021 sold for an average of $40,000 making the box break’s combined value nearly $1.4 million. Pokémon Day is shaping up to be very special this year, also announced this week: Post Malone will be performing a virtual concert, hopefully with loads of our favourite Pokémon by his side.
Speaking of awesome collabs, this week our TCG collaboration article focused on Mario Pikachu from 2016, one of the most sought-after modern day promos on the market.
With all these exciting announcements, this may lead to an even further increase in demand – The Pokémon Company released a statement hinting at an increase in supply as they look to up their efforts in printing during this difficult COVID-19 pandemic. Speaking of COVID-19, the TCG World Championships have been postponed to 2022 in London due to the ongoing risks a public event would cause.
This week, we released Part-two of our interview with “King Pokémon” Gary Haase, focusing on his love for collecting and his efforts to help bring success to the hobby.
There’s also lots of new sets on the horizon, Shining Fates releases this coming week and we saw some information related to an Eeveelution set called Eevee Heroes, releasing in Japan later this year.
And of course, how can I forget: our weekly illustration editorial got everyone asking “Where’s Logan?”. Can you find him?
