While there are a lot of expensive expenses, personally Pokémon card will be on sale soonand even some card boxes, an upcoming auction will list something much more interesting: paper of the Pokémon cards never made it into a pack in the first place.

As Dice cutter reportsheet contains 99 cards and is part of Pokemon’s the first western release in the late 20th century. It wasn’t a bad choice out of 99 either; there are 16 shiny cards in all, including Charizard and Blastoise, and tons of Mews.

There are also 32 Machamps. That’s a lot of Machamps.

I find this whole thing fascinating because:

1. You could theoretically cut these yourself and turn them into 99 old ones Pokémon card. I know there are devices out there that will get you the job done pretty well, but I also like to imagine a rich, adult sitting at a table with a pair of scissors, tongue slightly out to the side, slicing each line softly. such commercial. , whispering to himself “easy….easy”.

2. It’s a rare insight into the kind of percentages in the tag generation process. Like, every time you open a package Pokémon , what is the probability that you will get a Pikachu without getting a Pikachu such as Machamp? According to the analysis of this sheet, you will get Machamps.

3. Here’s some real behind-the-scenes stuff! At the top of the page it reads “OKAY FOR COLOR + FIT 11-30-98 7:25 am”, suggesting that this was a test run, and dates back to November 1998, a few months before the game was released more widely in the United States. Make this something of a Pokémon historical site, especially since it was displayed on the wall of the office CEO of Wizards of the Coast, a card manufacturing company in the US.

The bid on the cards is currently $34,000, 10 days left on the auction. Sheet of uncut 1998 Pokémon cards found, auctioned
