Complete in its original shrinkwrap from Wizards of the Coast, this booster box from Jungle has a chance of getting any number of rare cards from this, the game's first expansion set in the English language. If you open Jungle boosters, you have a chance of obtaining cards such as Clefable #1, Mr. Mime #6, or even one of the three original Eevee evolutions (Flareon #3, Jolteon #4, or Vaporeon #12). The possibility of getting fantastically-rare cards is there for those willing to pay for the high bid!

According to the auction listing for this booster box on Heritage Auctions:

A sealed Pokémon First Edition Jungle Set booster box in its original Wizards of the Coast shrink-wrap. This was the second set of the mega-popular Pokémon Trading Card Game, released on June 16, 1999. The set included a total of 64 cards and it was the first set to include copies of the holographic cards in non-holographic form. This box contains 36 booster packs, each with 11 cards, for a total of 396 cards! Because the box is sealed, the cards inside have never been handled, so we can assume that they are likely all in GEM MINT condition.
