I should mention that I'm very tired right now so I'm going to post this as simply and quickly as possible. I might have some errors in there. I probably have errors in there.
I should know better, I really should. But I saw these packs in a convenience store and dropped about $5 more than I should have. Each one was about 300 yen for 3 cards!
So why were these packs such a waste of money? I paid $1 per card when the local store has singles from 60 yen each - and I only needed one from each year. Yes, the premium, great, and star cards come at a higher price, but I'm not putting together a team! ... yet.
