Pokemon card fan discovers “God” TCG box from 2001

Pokemon enthusiast SuperDuperDani was shocked when they opened their Neo Discovery TCG booster box that had been sealed since 2001. Inside, the fan discovered that every single booster pack contained a rare holographic.

“I cracked into this live on stream and inside this booster box, there was a holographic card in every single pack. That is 36 booster packs with 36 holographics inside. I have literally never seen anything like this in my life,” the YouTuber explained in their July 6 video.

Dani revealed that they knew something was different about the box after opening just a few booster packs. “By about pack four I was already highly suspicious that there was something wrong. Because we pulled four holos in a row and normally that really never happens. By about pack six, everyone in the chat was suggesting that this was some weird error.”

After discussing the printing error with some of the Trading Card Game’s biggest veterans, the YouTuber revealed that no one they had talked to had ever seen this type of error before. They also added that the community may never get an answer as to how the mistake happened.

The TCG superfan summed up the moment as “the craziest Pokemon experience” of their life. While it’s still a mystery of how it happened, one thing is for certain – SuperDuperDani just lived out the childhood dreams of many Pokemon fans who grew up collecting the Nintendo items.
