Huggins & Scott to Auction Rare 1999 Pokémon 1st Edition Limited Printing (English) Base Set Unopened Booster Box


If you are a fan of the Pokemon franchise and also interested in super rare/expensive collectors’ items, then the recent announcement from Huggins & Scott Auctions might be of interest. According to the announcement, a rare 1999 Pokémon 1st Limited Edition Printing (English) unopened booster box will be up for aution from February 1 to 13. And you don’t even need to dress in fancy clothes and drive cross country, because interested bidders can participate in the auction online.

The official description from Huggins & Scott:

In August 2018, a 1999 Pokémon 1st Edition Limited Printing (English) Base Set unopened booster box sold at Huggins & Scott Auctions for $66,920. The tightly sealed container being auctioned has been in the possession of Huggins & Scott’s consignor since its 1999 release. Despite a ding to one corner on the display box (the shrink wrap does not conform to the corner, proving the container has been unsearched and is not re-wrapped), the remainder of the box presents as when produced pre-millennium. A box break will yield (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 of 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.

You can find more information (and bid) on the item by going directly to the site.
