If you've been shopping recently for Pokemon products, you might have come to a disappointing conclusion - they're out of stock! Even the latest releases and re-releases are proving difficult to hold on to. Blame it on Charizard!
It all starts with one crazy rare celebrity purchase and the YouTube quest to find these valuable cards, especially in the original packs. As more and more pack opening videos are hitting as well, crazier stunts like Flip It or Rip It have upped the stakes. On the flip-side, production has also decreased, making it more difficult to find in-print products. Because of this recent craze, Charizard is hotter than ever! Even some newly printed Charizards are fetching hundreds of dollars out of the box!
Have alot of old Pokemon cards laying around? You may want to consider going through them and to see if you're a proud owner of one of the rarities. Perhaps try giving you and your kids an opportunity to replicate a pack opening experience by blindly gathering old cards in groups, putting about 8-9 of them in a penny sleeve and revealing them together. You might be surprised what you will reveal.
In the meantime, we too eagerly await any stock replenishments and also the next release, the Shining Fates collection, which has a current release date of Feb 19, 2021! These sets are very limited and never sold as standard booster packs and only available in exclusive packaging!
