Original Obtention of Promos
« on: February 19, 2021, 02:53:33 PM »
How were promo cards obtained before people sold 'em on Ebay? Also, why did cards like 0P127 become so RIDONCULOUSLY overpriced and rare?

It varied. 

0P10 was included with a TCG magazine (Scyre, I believe) as a spoiler for set 2. 

0P12, 0P13, and 0P14 were included in a special box of the extended edition FotR DVD, with a bunch of other stuff (book ends are the only thing I remember).

Some were given out at pre/release events, like 0P19, 0P21, and 0P26.

Others were tournament prizes, like 0P28 and 0P29.

The Countdown Collection (0P30-0P45) were given out with purchase at shops.

The overpriced ones are mostly driven by small supply.  There are a ton of 0P19 out there, and the non-promo version is also easy to find.  There aren't many 0P127, and there aren't many of the non-promo version either.
