Is there any difference in price between the 291 yen packs and the 300 yen (tax included) packs?
No, I don’t think so. I can’t recall any listing I’ve seen where it’s even mentioned. It’s just us folk that care. There is a big price difference between the short packs and the normal long packs though.
Interesting, what are the prices of the two variations?
Tbh I can’t remember reliably the price of a short pack, I haven’t seen a public sale for maybe a year. The demand/notoriety for them has probably peaked since no-rarity became widespread.
There’s also the pack variant that has the black 300 yen sticker.
291 yen was printed in 1997 I believe and 300 was later in 1999 if I remember correctly. I use to always think the 291 was hopeful no rarity but never the less they are just two separate print runs.
What information do people have on the base set boosters? As I have some info from my local collectibles store here in Japan regarding the postcodes again, would like to cross-check and confirm. Pictures would be great as well if you have any!
All my base packs have the 104-01 post code, and after having a cursory glance so do the sets until Gym 1.
Do you guys know what would be the approximate value of a Base Set 291 yen short pack these days? Even though that’s not really a guarantee of anything, just a rare variant of the base pack. I am interested in buying them, but have no idea price range at all.
It sold out at 30 USD.
Around $30 seems to be the going rate currently. I sold a huge lot of them earlier in the year instead of selling pack by pack. I would’ve charged $34.99 free ship had I done individual.
I actually mean the “short” pack version. Those are long packs.
