    An original, unopened box of 1999 First Edition Pokémon cards has just netted someone 56,000 dollars at an USA auction.

    Huggins & Scott Auctions sold the box last week, with bidding opening at $20,000. There’s a reason for the steep price that goes beyond nostalgia: pristine Charizard holo cards can sell for almost as much on their own as shown when one sold for $55,000.

    The auction description does the math:

    reading this reminds me of the MTG card Black Lotus that's sold for $86 Grand something on ebay auction.

    No need since you can buy the current "god tier" cards (the Gold ones with MTG) and guard it with your life for years to come, then sell it when the time is right.

    Example my Gaea's Cradle MTG card now it's around $416.90
