Hi Fellow Pokemaniacs,


I've been away from the Pokemon TCG scene for... like 18 years. I've recently started back up and have obviously missed a ton of card sets. Everywhere online has old packs for a ton of money (old = pre-XY for me).


Are there any major retailers or regional retailers which sell them for fairly cheap? Is my best luck trolling around my local card shops?


Thanks for the advice!  :D

Greetings. If you’re looking for cards from older sets, I’ll recommend that you buy them individually instead of opening packs to get them. It’ll be a lot more cost-efficient, and you get to select the blisters/promos if there are any.

Older packs will also be harder to locate, a lot of people prefer to sell cards individually.
