Japan Post has introduced several limited edition stamps through time, a few of which are currently worth over ten times their initial cost to enthusiastic collectors. So now stamp fans and Pokémon enthusiasts have a fresh set to look forward to a run of Pokémon-themed stamps, which will be published this July.
The set will comprise two separate sheets of stamps. First is that a sheet of ten ¥63 stamps (¥630) which seem just like classic Pokémon trading cards, including a few of our favorite first-generation Pokémon such as Pikachu, Eevee, Magikarp, Mewtwo, and much more.
The next group is a pair of ten ¥84 stamps (¥840) which contain vibrant examples of Pikachu and other Pokémon playing in various environments throughout each of four seasons.
For acute Pokémon coaches, there’ll also be a distinctive collectible variant (¥4,000) packed within a box that resembles a Poké Ball. This limited-edition set incorporates different stamps in the two sheets mentioned previously and falls on August 25.
The classic edition comprises a pair of eight unique ¥84 trading card issuers, including legendary cards of Venusaur, Charizard, and Blastoise. There’ll also be two ¥120 stamps which are riffs on the traditional Japanese artwork beauty Looking Back’ and ‘Geese Flying Around Full Moon,’ together using Pokémon placed into the scene.
The collection also includes a Family Pokémon Card Game deck, which means you can brush up on your Pokémon card abilities. The deck comprises two promotional cards and three changing cards’ including Charizard, Pikachu, and Eevee.
The ¥63 and ¥84 postage sheets will soon be available for purchase from Japan Post on July 7, whereas the mailbox will be accessible on August 25 — so mark your calendars. It is possible to purchase them to the Japan Post official site and in post offices nationwide.
