If you ask any Pokémon TCG collector – or even any fan of the card game – what the gold standard set is for this game, they will be quick to tell you that it is the Base Set.

On January 9, 1999, the Base Set was released, launching one of the world's most popular trading card games. The set included 102 cards, including the highly popular Charizard. The sealed box offered here has a "Blue Winged Charizard" and has numerous country codes on the bottom side, Unlimited Edition. The box contains 36 booster packs, each with 11 cards, for 396 cards! The bottom left corner of the front side is heavily blunted, with the opposite corner blunted. The rest of the corners are slightly blunted. The front side of the box is slightly pushed in and wrapping has a small hole on the backside below the sealing line. The overall condition of the box is Good.
