Pokémon TCG Will Release The Ultimate Product For Charizard Fans

The Pokémon TCG scalping crisis is largely over. TPCI has succeeded in printing modern sets to incredible numbers, flooding the market so that anyone who wants Pokémon cards will get them. That said… this is a product that is going to absolutely, undoubtedly be scalped. Pokémon TCG has announced the Sword & Shield Ultra-Premium Collection, which will feature none other than Charizard. The box will include three SWSH Black Star Promos featuring a new etched foil Charizard V, Charizard VMAX, and Charizard VSTAR, along with Charizard-themed sleeves, a metal coin, damage counter dice, and more. It will notably contain sixteen Sword & Shield-era booster packs. It will be released on October 28th and will retail for $119.99.
