Even though Nintendo doesn’t plan on launching its eShop until June, some Best Buy stores in the US are already stocking pre-paid cards for the service.

Readers of Joystiq have been sending in reports that card were spotted at stores in California, Connecticut, and New York City.

The cards are come with $20 worth of funds for you to purchase Game Boy titles and more retro goodness once the service launches.

Nintendo will release a firmware update to add eShop to 3DS on June 6 in the US, and June 7 in Japan and Europe.
