I was wondering if anyone has any opinions on what a sealed Japanese Gold gift Pack Box is worth these days ?
I am referring to the item found in this video link
And furthermore the price of a sealed Japanese base set 104-01 deck box is worth ?
Thanks in advance,
Would say priceless as the next related video show that the base set decks/boxes contain no rarity cards.
Not to say they all would contain no rarities but there is a change.
Latest sold on Mercari 800.000 JPY is around 7500 USD
Thanks for the responses @majomaal and @shizzlemetimbers I really appreciate the links, info and your time.
It was actually my friend who bought the Gold box on Mercari (I know it has a tear) and I was a little worried they had over paid for it. However considering the items rarity, what you have said above and the recent price hike, I think the price he paid was fair and the opportunity to purchase it very rare.
@r2d287 , Not true unfortunately I have seen more instances of them being opened containing rarity than no rarity. However the sample is small. It has a decent chance compared to a random 104-01 or short pack because it is the only Pokemon item that is limited to a 1996 release
For the amount of no rarity holos in existence, there has to be a large source for them especially deck boxes. Given that none has been pulled from packs and only from decks, each holo represents one deck box. That is a lot of NR decks that were opened back then. Since there are only 2 sources of deck boxes, one from the deck case and another from the Gold Gift Pack, it is more than likely that NRs came from these Gift Packs almost exclusively.
@chok, Incorrect I have an opened short pack box that contained no rarity cards, it was listed on YJ along with a large amount of non holos consistent with the quantity you would except to pull. Also my article on NR is pretty solid research as to why they come from both packs and decks.
Thread is solid. Well, back to NR being mysterious.
The only video proof we have of NR coming out from any sealed product is from the gold gift pack. However there might be later runs which only consist of Rarity cards which might make the gold gift pack a gamble for NR cards at best.
The listing was an opened short box with hundreds on non holos, the seller had previously listed the holos separately. The lot was originally bought by Pokesyn. Sadly I didn’t save the pic of the lot but I might have it somewhere
