Restore Pokemon card mass with the suggestion “excellent”

Restore Pokemon card mass with the suggestion “excellent”

In Stonham

If you’re a Pokemon card collector, you know that it can be frustrating to find a solution to bulk cards. Some choose to sell them online for a few dollars or turn them into art, and others simply leave them in a binder to collect dust, hoping they’ll be valuable later.

While your bulk cards may not have much value to you, it’s important to know that they could be special to other fans, especially younger Pokémon fans or players who may not be able to purchase their own Booster Packs.

A Pokemon TCG collector has earned the praise of the community after revealing their heartwarming solution to bulk Pokemon cards in a fan discussion on Reddit. They revealed a snapshot of carefully curated Pokemon card packs in a free library for local fans to pick up and enjoy.

The person behind the original post described how they make sure to add a lot of V and V Max cards in addition to Energies, noting, “Good way to get rid of bulk and hopefully make some kids happy who don’t have the option to buy Pokémon cards or maybe can’t afford them.”

Pokemon TCG players loved the idea and praised the kindhearted collector for their efforts. One person commented, “That’s a great idea, good job being a good person OP,” while others noted that they were inspired to look for a free library in their area and do the same.

Some viewers revealed their own methods of giving back to the Pokemon TCG community in the comments. One enthused, “I think this is a great idea! I usually divide mine into little tins and throw them in the local charity shop to give to my friends’ kids.”

Even fans of other trading card games came across the post. One Yu-Gi-Oh player said, “Nice. I did something similar with my Yu-Gi-Oh bulk. I filled penny sleeves with as many cards as I could fit in them. Then I went around a school and hid them for kids to find. I hid about 50 packs.”

While some cynical readers insisted the cards were likely going to opportunistic resellers in the region, the vast majority of Pokémon TCG players in the comments were happy with the fun solution to bulk Pokémon cards.

If there’s a local free library or similar venue in your area, why not get in on this community trend? The Pokemon TCG is a great hobby to be involved in, but it can feel inaccessible to some people, and gestures like bulk care packages can help get more people into the game.
