Good that they will limit the number of cards/person. I've seen some scalpers hoarded like 500 of them.

The trading/ selling community on Reddit is great! Try the r/pkmntcgtrades forum. Many nice collectors that sell or trade their cards for reasonable prices. I got one there for reasonable amount mint condition.
