International Combined Shipping: I am al ways happy to combine shipping for International buyers. It is stored in a clear plastic case inside a Pokeball display stand. I cannot even begin to give any kind of grading to this toy's condition. Item is sold as is and described to the best of our knowledge. A great addition for any pokemon lover. .
If you wish for more pictures, please email me and I will be happy to send some more. There is only very light surface marks on the pokeball stand as well as on the plastic card case. Most people opened them up to get at the gold cards inside. Nor am I an expert with toys in general. There is some wear on both the box and pokeball. I've got about 5 of them, the cards themselves are in great condition, but cases are in shotty condition. Very few factory sealed units survive today.
The card itself does not appear to me that it was handled very much at all and looks pretty good. Anyone who brought a Poke-Ball back to Burger King got a free small french fry. The pokeball stand is hinged and opens. Each metal trading card is plated in 23K gold and features a different Pokemon character in bas-relief to the front with abilities and moves from the game to the back. Alot of the Poke-Balls were returned to Burger King. The card is double-sided and measures approximately 1. Overall, I believe that it is very good condition.
This lot includes the characters Pikachu, Charizard, Mewtwo, Jigglypuff, Togepi, and Poliwhirl with duplicates. Box and Item both show signs of storage, handling and use. . . . .
