Pokemon card collector stunned after PSA opens his rare classic TCG pack

A Pokemon Trading Card Game collector has been raved about after discovering that his first edition Neo Genesis booster packs were allegedly opened by the PSA sorting service.

By 2022, Pokemon cards have become so popular that classic sets can sell for as much as a house. However, to get those prices, players need to be classified by a professional company.

A collector who sent in their rare sealed Neo Genesis booster packs for sorting was shocked when PSA shipped their items opened again. This move leads to a return TCG cards lose a large amount of their value.

Popular collectors and sellers’TCA Gaming‘first reported on the incident in October 2021. In a YouTube video, he shows viewers that his first-version Neo Genesis packages from 2000 were opened after being sent out to classify. “They opened the packages,” he alleged. “All four Typhlosion booster packs are the same. They were opened at the bottom. “

After showing viewers the torn bottom of each collection, the collector then said, “I’m not sure what happened. These packages were not only opened while at PSA, but I was charged for it. So not only did they not care about it, and through the proper channels with insurance, or even contacting me, I was charged for the grading.”

In a February 2020 upload, TCA Gaming updated fans on the situation and revealed PSA reimbursed him for the damages. “PSA really paid off the value I put on these 4 booster packs. They also refunded the grading fee,” he said while holding the $2,000 payment in front of the camera.

While he was pleased with the resolution, TCA Gaming explained, “It took a little longer than I hoped. I mean, this moment has been going on for months. But in the end we came to a solution. “Despite being reimbursed, damaged collectibles are still painful.

With Pokemon cards continuing to increase in value, who knows how valuable the sealed first edition Neo Genesis packs could be years from now. The popular series features the rare Lugia and Typhlosion holos that are much sought after.
