Ok, we went to Wal-Mart today, and my sister just bought one of those things where you can buy 4 or so packs in a plastic thing. Right away, I did not have much faith in this, as they can some times be taken to be counterfeit. However, the cards were in the original packs, so I got that out of my head. Next, I noticed that on the back of this, it said "This package contains six Original Factory Sealed and Officially Licensed Wizards of the Coast, Topps, or Artbox Pokemon Packs." Obviously, this raised the question, Why are Topps and Artbox producing Pokemon Cards?! Then, my sister opened the plastic and pulled out the packs. It contained 2 Expedition, 1 Gym Leaders, and 1 Base Set Foreign Language (It looked German) pack. It also contained two packs of those stickers that you used to be able to buy. So that cleared up the mystery of Topps and Artbox. At least partially... Well, she opened the packs, and the Base Set and Gym Leaders appeared normal. However, the two Expedition packs contained the following for rares: Pack #1: 1 Holofoil Darkness Energy, 1 Holofoil Dugtrio (B-90), and 1 Rare Dugtrio (Same, just non-holo) Pack #2: 1 Holofoil Darkness Energy, 1 Holofoil Butterfree (B-68), 1 Rare Mewtwo (B-86) Each of these packs still had 9 total cards. Also, after closer examination of the plastic box, I saw the Beckett symbol on it. Here's the questions raised in my mind: 1. Why is Beckett putting different kinds of Pokemon objects together and selling them at Wal-Mart? I was under the impression that they were their own chain of stores. Am I mistaken here? Do they have the authority to group products like this, and then sell them at a different store? 2. Why did my sister get 3 rares? 3. Do I have reason to suspect these cards of being counterfeit?
