So basically, how do you buy your cards?

I buy everything except individual packs, there is no fun in buying them like that.

Ive bought 6 tins, close to 10 value packs, an arceus premium box, and the platinum collection box so far.

What have YOU bought?

When I used to buy cards, I bought them in thin little packages at 7-11 'till I got a respectable collection.

I bought one pack ever back when I collected them. I traded up for the rest, and I think I ended up with some 30,000 cards. I still have them in a box and a few binders near my desk.

GPXPlus crap. I do not click back, but honestly, you shouldn't need to click me in the first place.


You are reading Fatalis' level correctly.

I usually buy a booster box (36 packs) when a new set comes out, then buy a value pack or two depending on the promos. I also tend to buy individual packs a lot as well.

I buy them however I can, ah ha ha. Though since I usually only buy/trade for battling purposes, I'm able to get some really good stuff from my friend, who collects them obsessively.

He has, I think, all of the pre-EX sets completed, and is missing anywhere from one to eight cards in each set after. Scary. ;_; His buying strategy is the same as mine, though he tends to keep an eye out for out-of-print stock that is periodically thrown onto shelves for quick purchases.

It really depends on what I'm needing.

I like buying tins because I like the tins. I store things in them and they just look nice in with my collection. Not to mention getting a LvlX card is quite handy now days.

I tend to buy Blister's a lot when I'm just buying cards though. It's just a better deal.

At the local tourney we however, have single cards for sale. I tend to go and get a ton of singles when I go just for collcetion and for when people buy things off me. It's also really handy for building a deck.

If a pokemon I collect is on the front of a Starter Pack I'll buy it though. Only reason I bought the Cutting Edge deck was for the box and Gallade GL Holo.


--------------------
I'm not the very best that ever was.

I havent purchased a single card since the Rising Rivals set (My last pack contained a Flygon Lv. X, which I sold for $50).
Afterward I went on hiatus, and only recently started collecting Primes and Legends, trading only

At first i stole packs from a store. However, after guilt, and a fear of getting caught, i decided fto stop.

After that i only buy used cards, tins and value packs. Unless i get a normal pack very cheap.

Since I'm just getting back into the game, I'm buying cards up in a lot of different ways. I started off with theme Decks for energy and value packs (and some individuals) to see a bunch of the new cards in different sets. Now that I've investigated things and learned a bit more, I bought a booster box of Triumphant the other day to help me get some trading fodder (ha!) and build up a decent deck. I'll probably end up getting a box for the B&W release, too, unless I can make it to a prerelease.

I buy the booster packs, mostly online as it's better value. I occasionally buy collectors boxes. I recently got the Mimikyu box with collectors pin, so cute love.gif
