You Will Not Believe The Prices That Old Pokemon Booster Boxes Are Selling For
I have been playing and collecting Trading Card Games since the mid-1990s. I started playing Magic: The Gathering in 1996. I remember seeing a Black Lotus card from MTG at my local game store selling for $300. I still remember thinking $300 for a single card was crazy!
In 2017, someone paid $100,000 for a Perfect 10 graded Black Lotus. Wow! Just Wow! A PSA 9 Black Lotus sold for $62,000 in April 2020.
While playing in a large MTG Tournament in January 1999, representatives of Wizards of the Coast were demonstrating their new Pokemon Trading Card Game. I played the demo, and enjoyed it. The Base Set of Pokemon had just been released. My kids and I had been playing the Pokemon Red/Blue games on the old B& W GameBoys, so I picked up some booster packs to teach them a TCG. Booster packs sold for $3.29 each back then. And Booster Boxes of the Base Set retailed for about $118. The real Pokemon Craze started in the Spring/Summer of 1999, about 2-3 months later.

An Issue Finally Worthy Of Its Name
It’s like a greatest hits compilation of early Pokémon cards.
But it was still pretty bold of Wizards of the Coast to include the word “legendary” in the title of a set that was released just three years into their run of Pokémon issues.
However, judging by the prices unopened packs and boxes from the 2002 Pokémon Legendary Collection series are now garnering, WOTC’s confidence was well founded. Sure, this 110-card offering has its critics who bemoan its lack of originality, but there’s also a large and passionate group of hobbyists who do, indeed, consider it “legendary.”
“Some people really love the set – they’re really into it – and then there are people that hate the set,” noted Zack Browning, who owns the No. 1 Current Finest, 2002 Pokémon Legendary Collection set on the PSA Set Registry. “There aren’t many people in between.”
Well-known Pokémon trading card expert Scott Pratte agrees. “It is very much that cliché of love it or hate it,” he says.
Both Pratte and Browning note that the 2002 Pokémon Legendary Collection set was not highly successful when it was initially released.
“Until the past couple of years, nobody really talked about Legendary Collection,” noted Pratte.
WOTC also introduced significant improvements in the Legendary Collection set. If you think of it as a “greatest hits” compilation, you could say that some “bonus tracks” were added to make it more desirable.

Pokemon Booster Box Price Guide
So without further adieu, lets have a look at Crazy Pokemon Booster Box Prices!
Note: When i mention single card values in the article, Im specifically mentioning cards graded Gem-Mint by an Independent Grading Service. Card Prices and Booster prices are based on Actual eBay Sales in the United States!
Pokemon Base Set, 1st Edition, 1999 $60,000 The Holy Grail of Pokemon Booster Boxes! 1st edition Pokemon Cards sell for ridiculously high prices. In November 2018, this booster box sold for $60,200 on eBay receiving over 64 bids in the process. Why is this going for $60k? Basically, every card in this box is still mint, and could sell for great prices. Charizards in this box can sell for $20,000 to $75,000 all by themselves. All holofoils in this box can sell for over $1,000 each. Even basic energy cards can sell for $60 a piece! Based on this sale, each individual booster pack would be worth $1,600! Yowza!
A PSA 10 Blastoise sold for $6000 in April 2020.
Pokemon Skyridge 2003 $15,995 Its funny how one rare card can essentially make the price of a booster box skyrocket in value. Whats the one rare card in this one? You guessed it another Charizard! This time its Crystal Holo Charizard. A Pristine 10 Crystal Holo Charizard sold for $9000 in April 2020. This helps these boosters boxes sell in the $15,000 price range. That makes each booster pack in this expansion worth about $400 each! Crystal Ho-oh is in here as well, which can sell for about $2,700.
Had I Known In 1999 What I Know Now
Cut to 2020 and Pokemon still has legs! There are a lot of Pokemon Collectors/Investors with money to burn. And there a lot of readers out there sitting on small fortunes.
There were a lot of moms & dads playing in Pokemon Tournaments with their children in 1999/2000. Some parents would buy two boxes of Pokemon cards: One box of Pokemon cards to open with their kids And another box stored away for a rainy day. Well, that rainy just might be here for them!
One particular parent I know would always but 2 Pokemon Booster Boxes when they hit stores. He would give his kids a pack a day if his kids had good days at school. Luckily this was a rare occurrence for him and his kids. And now, he has some unopened old booster boxes still sitting in his closet.
Ive been scouring eBay lately, looking at past sales of Pokemon Booster Boxes, and basically freaking out. There are over two dozen Pokemon booster box expansions selling for more than $3000 each!
