This is my Japanese Base Set short top pack boosterbox.

Hi, I want to share my short pack box with you guys. This is the very first boosterbox made by Pokémon and there are not many around, also the packs are very rare to find. Thinking about opening it and selling the packs but that would be a very hard decision for me so what do you think I should do? I’m a sealed boosterbox collector by the way.

Thanks!

But now can we really say that all short booster packs do not contain no rarity cards? :stuck_out_tongue:

ahhhh really cool cards but cooler sealed IMO!

Good Job buddy :blush: what a shame though

Hey @shizzlemetimbers :grin:

I knew it would not have it.

Now the mystery continues.

Thanks for sharing this. It makes me think that there are certain people who have opened these packs before, realised they didn’t contain no rarity cards, then just not said anything because they know that saying they didn’t contain no rarity cards would devalue their short top packs.

Well then.

R.I.P :sob:

No rarities just exist, we need to accept that :grin:

How’d I miss this thread! Short packs were never the smoking gun here and as I explained in the no rarity pack/deck article short packs have an approx. production range between 20th October 1996 and 21 June 1997. Short packs are however narrow the date down the furthest so they still are your best shot at no rarity but still the probability is extremely small.
