If you’ve got any old booster packs in the closet, you might want to go find them.

An unopened first edition booster box was sold in the United States last week for a staggering $US56,000 ($76,860), with an additional 23 percent buyers premium bringing the total to $94,537.

The box was a limited English first edition with 36 11-card boosters, and presented a rare opportunity for collectors to get their hands on a pristine Charizard. A first edition holographic Charizard sold for $76,396 ($US55,650) on eBay last year, so you get an idea of why bidding for the booster box was so high.

The purchase of the booster box is a notable jump from an online auction in October last year, where a first edition unopened booster box sold for ($74131) $US54,000.
