At Heritage Auctions, a Dallas, Texas-based auction house well known for their dealings in comics, video games, trading cards, and other collectibles of a similar nature, an auction is well underway for a box break of Unlimited Base Set Pokémon Trading Card Game packs. 36 packs from a singular booster box are each individually up for auction and prospective bidders have until Tuesday, June 15th at 6:50 PM Central Time, or 7:50 PM Eastern Time, to stake a claim on any of these booster packs.
According to the press release by Heritage Auctions, approximately 12 packs out of the 36 in the booster box will contain a holofoil card depicting one of the fantastical creatures which made this franchise so very popular. There is even a chance for one of the winners of the box breaks to open up a Gem Mint-condition Charizard, which is one of the most sought-after cards in the game. Furthermore:
Collectors get in on the action by casting a bid on any of 36 sealed packs June 1-15 on HA.com. Packs will be offered at no minimum bid from a box valued between $20,000 and $25,000.
The break, hosted by Gary "King Pokémon" Haase, Maddalena and DFW Pokémon team members, will be streamed live at 1 p.m. CST. The live stream will be available to view through the DFW Pokémon Facebook Page. […]
