The rapid increases in the value of sealed Pokemon TCG 1st Edition Base Set boxes seemed to have to take a breather, for the moment. After touching a record-high of $408,000 in January (see "Another Heritage Auction Brings Yet Another Record-Setting Sales Number for 'Pokemon TCG 1st Edition' Sealed Product"), a Pokemon TCG 1st Edition Base Set box sold for $360,000 at the March 26 Heritage onlince auction, which represents about a 12% pullback in realized price. A 12% pullback is unlikely to represent a greater downward price trend, as it matches the price realized for a Pokemon TCG 1st Edition Base Set sold in November (see "Heritage Auctions Sets a New Record Sale Price for a Sealed 'Pokemon 1st Edition' Booster Box"), but it does indicate that $408,000 may be the high-end of the box's price range for the short term.
