Dragonite V Box Provides Great Value
At a retail price of $19.99, the Dragonite V Box offers collectors excellent value:
- The Dragonite V promo alone is worth $5 – $10

Caring for Your Cards
Pokémon cards can maintain value or become even more precious over decades. With proper care, your Dragonite V box pulls can stay in pristine shape:
- Use sleeves and top loaders, limit direct handling of cards
- Store in a cool, dry place away from humidity
- Avoid exposing cards to direct sunlight over long periods
- Never bend or fold cards, which can damage instantly
- Be careful with premium foil cards – they scratch and scuff easily
- Consider having truly valuable cards professionally graded like PSA 10
Treat your Pokémon cards well and they can become treasures to keep or sell down the road!
From its highly coveted Dragonite V promo to the booster pack lottery, the Dragonite V Box provides tremendous collecting value. It celebrates a fan-favorite Pokémon with cards that look fantastic and play effectively.
