Pokémon Halloween BOOster Bundle Set List and Guide

Pokémon Halloween BOOster Bundle Set List and Guide

The new Pokémon Halloween set has arrived. The BOOster Bundle hit store shelves as of September 1st, 2022 and has an MSRP of $14.99 USD. This small set is a fun treat (or trick?) for kids, meant to be handed out on Halloween in lieu of candy. Usually, a new set of Pokémon cards has a chase card or one card that is worth some real cash, but this set is different.

All 30 Cards in the Set

The BOOster Bundle contains a whopping 40 booster packs each containing 3 cards. Each pack will guarantee a holo. However, every card will feature a Pikachu stamp that is stylized as a pumpkin. This stamp is very similar to the 2021 Celebrations Pikachu stamp, but Halloween-themed.

The set itself contains 30 cards, with 10 of those cards being holofoils. The cards feature ghost-type Pokémon, some other spooky Pokémon, and of course, Pikachu. 

Each of the 30 cards is a reprint, and do not have a unique set number, but rather their original set number.

I was able to complete the set by opening just one bag, having completed the set after 22 packs. If you are lucky, you might be able to complete two sets from a single bag.

Are the Cards or Packs Valuable? 

As of today (November 04, 2022) a sealed bag of BOOster packs is selling for $30-$45 on eBay, which is kind of crazy. This price will drop fast as supply increases and demand falls. This product will probably hover right above the MSRP price of $15-$20 after a few more weeks.

To buy the BOOster packs individually, they are currently selling for about $1-2/pack. Again, this price will probably drop as more cards hit the market.

The cards themselves are not valuable, and most of the holo cards are floating around the $0.50-$0.75 range. 

Is the BOOster Bundle A Smart Investment?

The short answer is no.

The Pokémon Company International (TPCI) understand the market better than anyone, and they invented this product for children. 

The cards aren’t inherently cool by any means, and none are rare. This means that demand will be very low after the initial release. Low demand means low prices. 

This Halloween set is similar in nature to the recent 2022 McDonald’s Collection. It is a small set, with no rare cards. TPCI created these sets in a way that is appealing to children, but not desirable to adult collectors. This effectively lowers the scalping market and makes the cards available for the younger audience, which is really cool. 

However…

Just to play the devil’s advocate, picking up a bag or two of the BOOster Bundle cards could turn out to be a good investment, in the long term. I mean 10+ years. 

No doubt this product will be sought after in a decade, but that can be said for almost all Pokémon card products. If you are looking to make a profit, be prepared to store a bag of cards for a decade. 

Final Thoughts

For years now I’ve been handing out Pokémon cards for Halloween. What else do you do with all of the bulk laying around? But it’s super cool to see TPCI actually catching on to this trend and spreading it across the world. This is a fun product, but what’s really cool about it is that you can complete the set very easily and still have packs left over for Halloween.
