Is the Pokémon Knock Out Collection Summer 2023 Good Value for Money?
The box contains three rare holo cards – Shaymin 015/185 from Vivid Voltage, Zeraora 061/185 also from Vivid Voltage and Rapid Strike Marshadow 080/203 from Evolving Skies. Two booster packs and two sheets of stickers.
The holo cards are currently available on Ebay UK for around £1.50 / $1.50 each. Individual booster packs generally retail for around £4 in the UK and $4 in the US.
Two Booster packs would therefore cost £8 / $8. Adding the expected value of the three cards takes the total to around £12.50 / $12.50 which is higher than the retail price in the UK and the US. The Pokémon Knock Out Collection Summer 2023 is therefore reasonable value for money.
It should be noted that the two Vivid Voltage cards are marked D and are no longer playable in the current Standard Form Rotation.
