62-YEAR-OLD’S $500,000 POKEMON CARD COLLECTION STOLEN

WHAT HAPPENED?

Police in South Carolina are looking into a massive Pokemon card theft that saw $500,000 worth of cards stolen from a 62-year-old man’s house.

Speaking to The Smoking Gun, Polydorou said that some unopened boxes held 24 packs of cards and one contained valuable Japanese editions.

The collector added that his evaluation of the value of his cards came from recent auctions for first-edition boxes issued in 1999.

As such, it’s possible that one of the unopened packs could contain a Charizard 1st Edition Shadowless Base Set, which can sell for as much as $420,000 by itself.
