Why would it be a bad thing? It finally means people can start collecting cards again instead of having to deal with not collecting due to empty shelves.

collection values goes down on resale with more cards in circulation. Unless the shortage was so short it didn't have a real effect on that.

The point is to return the market to where it was before the shortage began. There are literally no new cards in circulation right now because of how short the stock is. Have you been to any stores lately?

This is such a relief. I found the first booster pack I found at Target in months yesterday. 😩 Hopefully I can find a few more in the next coming weeks! 😃

When would the shortage fix go into effect? I work at a Target and we still get ransacked for our stock every Friday. Would love to be able to buy packs on a break again without having to call sick and go to another store.

Ask for my friend code.

Pokemon cards right now are in an economic bubble. Prices have gone up due to influences and speculators. So all these (mostly vintage) high value cards have all been bought up thinking that the value will continue to rise so they hoard them. Because of that, you can't find a Base Set Charizard for less than 2k.

But eventually, bubbles pop.

I don't think the bubble for the older cards will pop, as older baseball cards have definitely demonstrated the ceiling is much further away for Pokemon cards still, but prices for the newer cards should return to more normal levels.
