Many Pokémon Trainers ask the question: Is it worth it to buy a Pokemon tin. Once used as a way to introduce new cards into standard, Pokemon Tins now attempt to deliver needed reprints, a stylish storage system, and a barrage of boosters. But is this an item that raises the value of your Poke Dollars, or an

While this review will focus on the recently released tins for sun & moon, it is also going to attempt to take a larger overview of the product, examining past trends and making future predictions. As always, my evaluation of this product is just that, my own. In the end it is your evaluation which matter most. With that being said, let’s take looK!

A Pokemon Tin contains the following…

* 1 of 2 foil Pokémon-GX or previously EX cards:
* 4 Pokmon TCG booster packs.
* A code card to unlock the foil GX cards as well as a playable deck in the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online

There’s a lot of value here. Excluding the tin, which I will discuss in a moment, if we use an over the counter price of $4.00 each for the Pokemon booster packs, and the online code at $1.00 each, we see a total value of $17.00 on this product. At an average cost of 17.99, it means you are paying 99 cents for the foil GX card.

Now, if we wanted to be a bit more conservative here, we can look at the fact a booster box costs about $100 for 36 packs, thus bulk buys result in a cost of about 2.75 each. That gives us a bulk value of 11 dollars and, thus means you are on average paying about 5.99 for the included foil GX card. Oh, and of course there’s the included tin.
