Whether you’re looking for some Power 9 for your collection or just a Power Conduit for your Commander deck, the vendors at Grand Prix Santa Clara should be able to help you get what you’re looking for.

Prize Wall

We believe you should be able to play the formats you enjoy and compete for prizes that interest you at our Grand Prix events, and with that in mind, we’re continuing to offer the Prize Wall at our 2018 Grand Prix events! Win Prize Tix in events and redeem them for items like booster packs, single cards, and uncut sheets. As always, 10 Prize Tix can be redeemed for any Standard-legal booster pack, with other items available at different redemption rates.

We’re planning to offer a consistent Prize Wall experience for the year 2018. We’ll offer a wide variety of recent booster packs, single cards, and other items that you’ve come to know and love along with some special items unique to certain events.

For example, the South Bay’s hockey fans will be happy to hear that we’re offering exclusive CFB hockey pucks at the Prize Wall along with uncut sheets, oversized cards, canvas prints, complete sets, and Grand Prix T-Shirts!
