Pokémon TCG fans will not want to miss Whatnot’s May Slabathon auction month.

Agreeing the consign this treasure trove, the collection was eventually all individually graded by PSA where a total of 2,454 slabs were produced. Now, this entire collection will be available via auction until the end of this month where 30-night live-action events will take place. Auctions will begin at $1 and last for 1 minute, moving in reverse-chronological order with Legendary Collection going first, ending with the 1st Edition Base Set Shadowless on May 29th.
