In case you aren't aware, the Pokemon card scalping is so bad that Target and Walmart have suspended carrying cards until further notice because when new packs release hoards of people show up to get them in a very Black Friday fashion. If you're a normal, casual collector and are lucky enough to have a nearby card shop you might still be able to get your hands on choice cards. But if you don't, you're currently shit out of luck outside of buying them online. And that's fucked up. I'm at a loss for words.
Apparently rich Youtubers are buying absurd amounts of cards (starting with Logan Paul who bought 2 MILLION USD worth of them) and people are following in their footsteps.
I know they're just paper but I love the art so much and occasionally like to treat myself to a little pack or two. But above all, they essentially ruined and stole from children who collect/play the game. How selfish can you be??
So, in closing, if you're a Pokemon card scalper/insanely rich Youtuber following this trend: I hate you.
