Hello! I was wondering, do any of the vendors sell any Pokemon cards (Booster Boxes, Tins, Booster Packs, etc.) at ACen for a special price or at all? I'm just curious because I want to get back into collecting them! Haha

Also, is anyone planning to bring some to battle? Wouldn't mind watching!

I know for sure vendors sell them. Not sure about prices, but I've definitely seen multiple vendors selling them every year.

Also, if they do sell cards at ACen, they would probably be cheaper than what you would find at stores right?

Probably not. Checkout your local Target/Walmart/Meijer for their prices, and then you can compare to the con prices.

The best prices are probably on miniaturemarket.com though, and shipping is cheap if you live around these parts since they are based in MO. My husband bought a bunch of Magic cards and got me some Pokemon cards(booster packs) for cheaper than what they sell them at the chain stores.

I sadly can't buy anything online, not until I go to college that is and that would only be on Amazon, but idk if I'd be allowed to then aha. Would they at least be the same price? I'm trying to look out for a Booster Box and a Trainer Box give or take a few Booster Packs. I don't have a credit card and my parent swon't let me.

Well here are some prices for reference anyway, so you'll know how much extra the dealers are charging. http://www.miniature...sult/?q=pokemon

Also, as a heads up, I was buying Pokemon merch last year, and even for the same item different vendors had slightly different prices. So the prices will vary depending on who is selling it.
