A box of Pokémon cards sold for 120 million forints
Heritage Auctions really enjoys the ridiculous level of enthusiasm for Pokémon cards. Fans offer hundreds of thousands of dollars for a rare card, well for an unopened box of cards.
Slowly, it will be more worthwhile to invest in first-release Pokémon cards than in Facebook stocks. Even at the last big auction, a card went for $ 195,000 (roughly $ 59 million), and now we managed to surpass that as well.
Technically, let’s say it’s still not the most expensive Pokémon card auction, as this is a complete, unopened set, not a single card. As an outside observer, of course, $ 408,000 (roughly $ 120 million) still seems a bit of an exaggeration.
According to Heritage Auctions, the leader of the card pack auction, the first edition card pack was worth so much because there is a chance it will include a first edition Charizard copy, which alone is worth $ 350,000.
Of course, if someone has $ 408,000 for a Pokémon card deck, they probably won’t fill their pillows if they can’t find a Charizard in the box.
