Someone posted this on Reddit looking for more information, I thought I’d post it here. I’m not sure what these boxes are called. They’re the retail distribution boxes with loose “long packs” inside. This guy found 4 of them, 3 of which are still sealed. Does anyone know what the value of a sealed one might be?
I saw this on reddit a few hours ago. I sent him a PM offering to buy the lot, but no reply yet. It seems he may try to sell them himself. I was hoping they’d have the 1999-2000 date. The opened pack he posted has the 1999 date.
I think he got a fair price whoever bought them will make 100% profit if they sell them in individual packs so that is a fair enough profit in my eyes and not a con.He knew nothing about pokemon cards,did not care about them and did not have an ebay account.If I were him I would be happy with £6000.If only he had not found a buyer for another 2 weeks I would have had the cash to buy 2 boxes from the dude:-(
Sometimes people need cash. when you weigh up the hassle, potential drama with scammers, time listing and posting individual packs etc, the price he got for bulk was pretty reasonable IMO, especially for someone who has nothing to do with the hobby.In some circumstances almost 9k could benefit some people much more than 100-200 a week minus fees, time and hassle.
Having said that, I would of taken the slow and steady approach for atleast a couple of the boxes.
