Last year I wrote about the special Pokémon stamp box that was available via pre-order only but they later changed it to a lottery system due to the high demand. We sent in a postcard to take part in the lottery and we were lucky enough to be selected as one of the winners. Winners are given a letter that authorizes you to purchase it at any local post office as long as you can provide the letter and your ID. Winners are still required to pay 4000 yen ($34.92 USD) for the product.
The Stamp Box includes one stamp sheet featuring various Pokémon Card Artwork including the iconic generation 1 starter Pokémon in their final evolved forms.
A Family Pokémon Card Game collection that is a starter deck for newcomers to the Pokémon Card Game.
Three Pokémon postcards featuring Eevee, Charizard, and Pikachu.
Two special promo cards that feature traditional Japanese-style artwork of Pikachu and Cramorant based on the classic Japanese stamps Beauty Looking Back (見返り美人図 / Mikaeri Bijin-zu) by Hishikawa Moronobu and Moon and Wild Geese (月に雁 / Tsuki ni Kari) by Hiroshige Utagawa. The promo cards are illustrated by Mitsuhiro Arita, who was the person behind the most iconic Base Set Charizard card which was produced in 1999.
