Is it Worth it to Buy Pokemon Cards in 2022?
It has come to shock several old-time Pokemon fans that the cards they held so near and dear to them are making an explosive comeback in 2022. In fact, this year has brought such a huge spotlight on Pokemon cards that there are now store-enforced limits on how many one person can buy. Customers are fighting amongst one another to get their hands on new packs, and many smaller stores are locking them up for fear of theft. Is there actually any profit behind buying a ton of Pokemon cards? Is it everything the live box breaks and famous YouTubers made it out to be? Well, in this video we will hear the opinion of one past Pokemon card collector.
This particular streamer states that he no longer want to be part of the ever-growing Pokemon box break community due to what it has grown to be. The community used to be for fun, with people buying packs purely for entertainment value.
Nowadays, it seems as if buyers are looking for monetary value from their box breaks, and streamers are reinforcing it with bloated payouts. Buyers are promised tons of money for cards they will not realistically be able to sell on the market. While Pokemon cards may turn a profit, it is not nearly as common as you may think.
