You can try CardJourneys, they might be sold out though. I message them to ask when or if they have more stock for later.

Ben, is this a wholesale site or something? Because it seems to me that they're charging $700 for High Class Shiny V, but it doesn't say it's a case. It seems like it's ONLY ONE? all they're other products are $300+ but no mention of buying a case or anything? I'm confused

For www.cardjourneys.com

there’s a currency converter you can select to check what currency it’s showing. Try the selection menu or the header of each page.

I have a friend who orders bulk from them as well to save on shipping.

Is this real? Plus, why is it always Charizard is the popular, special card? Also: Return of Shiny Decidueye from hidden fates

Hi there. Where can I order for this set?

Is this set going to be good for flippers (people who buy and resell the packs for more than they bought them for)? I'm looking at a box that costs $70 USD. There is 10 packs. Should I preorder? Thanks!

(A Person, yes this is real)
Try these websites for preorder:
I can post more if needed...

Andres Salas

Yes can you post more please? I've looked at those sites and others but they're charging more than $80 (shipping is $30+) and it looks like eBay is the best deal. Do you know anyplace where I can buy wholesale? I'm trying to start an online business and haven't had luck. I don't want to charge way above market price just to make a profit. Thanks

Does anybody know how many packs the boxes will contain? (I know the packs themselves will have 10 cards, but how many packs are in each of the boxes?)

4 years ago

Each Japanese booster box will contain 10 booster packs,with 10 cards in each pack.

4 years ago

Am I reading this right? You get 1 guaranteed V or VMAX per pack?? So 10 per booster?

4 years ago

Is this box gonna resell? I wasn't able to cop and I'm curious, dont wanna pay overprice

Nobody? Apparently this very sparkly Charizard VMAX I got isn't so common.
