You can get a Battle Styles ETB for 41.99 now. this is basically MSRP which is 40 for an ETB.
Next set Chilling Reign may also not be scalped. but for the next oldest sets, Shining Fates, Vivid Voltage, and Champions Path, are still being scalped. I personally think this is it, next set will more than likely not be scalped and sold for MSRP, people bag holding will get fatigued and keep lowering prices or you may start getting them in store.
Scalpers are losing.

Thanks anon. What about vintage? I know it's never going to drop to pre-COVID levels, but I have to believe the ridiculous prices I've seen can't last.
>>
>>47017013
Everything is under a microscope. modern will collapse and eventually vintage will drop in price. I cannot tell with vintage, since its so ambiguous. what's a good deal and what's a bad deal seems to be a case by case basis with vintage.

>4875 PSA 10 Champions Path Secret Rare Charizard V.
Its no secret that this card is not rare. my other prediction has been that in by July 1st, PSA will grade 6 thousand in 10, just from what they already have in backlog, waiting to be graded.
I also believe that this card will in total be pretty valueless in the long run. everything said and done, I predict that in 10 it will break 10k population in a few years.
I keep bringing this up because its important to remember not to overspend on shit. People were spending 3k on a ungraded one opening week when it was released.
NEVER GO FULL RETARD.

Don’t believe that “MSRP” shit. The people selling for that ALREADY OPENED, REMOVED ANYTHING VALUABLE, AND THEN RESEALED the packs. This same dude shilled two other sellers that had “MSRP” booster boxes and ETBs that had the same problem.

Scalpers showed they obviously know nothing about pokemon cards when they went after battle styles. This is a pretty mediocre set that would have been on clearance at places like walmart and target by the end of the year. The scalpers got spoiled by hidden fates, champions path, and shining fates but no one should be paying 1 cent above msrp for brand new normal sets.

If they were reseals technically they were already opened

((((Investors)))) are trying to hype up chilling reign by saying it will have a lot of alt arts but it’s very probable that a good chunk of them will be taken out and put into box sets/tins. And chilling reign isn’t even that great from a playability standpoint compared to battle styles

What I’ve learned from this is that the sheer amount of base jungle and fossil out there is insanely huge.

Go buy one, friend.
The unlimited non-foil is like 6 or so dollars. Sure, the pickings have gotten slim as I continue to buy them, but they're still there. I don't have the capital to just massively buy a ton at once. Just a slow drip feed.
Everyone deserves to own a Politoed. There's even some unlimited foils hovering around on ebay. There's even a few I keep eyeing but not buying because fuckers are charging NM prices for non-NM cards.

The Umbreon and Glaceon are from the main set rather than as promos so I'm looking forward to the set arts for the others

5ban can occasionally put out a good looking card (not just decent) but considering that's a handful out of over 1000, and overall they're worse than when they started in the BW era that's not saying much

This is quite literally 2 dollars max.
By the way, those aren't first edition.

>>47024312
Actually?
>>
>>47024676
If you have proof such as recording yourself opening the pack with zero cuts, it's possible.
I gave some other anon a long time ago the same advice and he actually did record himself opening his pack and got refunded after reaching out.
>>
>>47024312
>>47024676
most companies require proof of it being damage right out of the pack usually in the form of video.

Without evidence it can be hit or miss to get things replaced, besides, TPCi probably can't hear quality control complaints over the sound of the money machine going BRRRR

Pokemon should do a collector edition product the way magic does to try counteract the scalpers and whalebros.

>has guaranteed V per pack or something along those lines

I got 2 mini tins with Evolution packs in them along with packs of Crimson Invasion. I've recently got a bunch of TT tins and they all had at least one Evolution pack in them.
>>
>>47024781
Are you fucking retarded?
Collector boxes have single handedly killed Magic. Pokemon has quite literally struck the magic formula of having cheap boxes with chase cards to entice collectors and actual players at the same time without making you pay 300 fucking dollars a box.
Never post here again.
if ANYTHING, MtG should take a page out of Pokemons books and learn to put chase stuff in regular sets. Lottery boxes have aged beautifully.
>>
>>47024772
My BS ETB had the Alt Art Ttar (factory damaged lmao) and rainbow Karina. I wish you the same luck

And yet when I buy Team Up tins I get Steam Siege, Sun & Moon, Burning Shadows, and Crimson Invasion. Whatever though, I just wanted the Snorlax/Eevee promo card and tins

In my ETBs I got the alt art Rapid Urshifu which happens to be my least favorite of the 4 alt arts. You're a lucky bastard anon. I really shouldn't complain though

I saw this as well and chuckled because I could picture all the fucking idiots camping outside the store Friday morning. They would fucking camp out in the asile on Thursdays waiting for the wageslave to put a few packs out, and test then apart looking for SF or VV packs. it's embarrassing.

A small rift in the system in a time where literally everything is rising in price means that modern boxes will permanently be upmarked.
>Because that went so well the last time they did it with the masterpieces.
It did go well, what the actual fuck are you talking about. Masterpieces were the perfect hit in MtG. They had chase cards in standard boxes and they sold extremely well with zero negative side effects to either the secondary market or the actual playerbase. Boxes have increased in value like crazy even after "printed into oblivion." The masterpieces themselves have also retained value. Collector's boxes are all negative with zero positives. They devalue cards for collectors/investors, and they are now forcing regular players to crack set boosters because nobody has fucking draft boosters. Intentionally UNDERPRINTING draft boxes will never EVER be a good thing.
>>
>>47024869
The huge speckles. It looks like uncolored foiling or something. I really hate it.
>>47024858
I’d rather the borders look like complete shit and the art be pristine. My one chase card I’ll ever pull and the ART is fucked up.
>>
>>47024911
Oh shit I thought that was part of the art. Yeah that's some rough shit especially since it's on the front
>>
MtG Strixhaven Collector Boosters have these in them so they’re ok with me
>>
Holy shit the TcgPlayer is so fucking garbage. If I already have a non holo and I add a holo, it automatically adds it to the non holo. So I then have to bring the amount of cards down to one and then make that one holo, before adding it again HOLY FUCK

>>47024924
Yeah it’s pretty fucking awful. Felt like shit pulling it
>>
>>47024693
Alright so would this damage
>>47024911

>>
>>47024937
Are you talking about the app? I've ran into that a few times logging my collection, so I usually add the holos first, if need be.
>>
>>47024850
Very nice stamped cards love the yanma
>>
>>47024934
Hope you didn't pull those from a pack or a box.
Those are worth nothing.
but don't worry, it only cost 25+ dollars per pack!
>>
>>47024982
Yeah I meant app. I know to do that, but even adding manually doesn't let you change conditions of cards without adding it in first. Is there any other apps that are better for keeping track of cards?
>>
It's now been over a month and I'm still waiting on 2 TCGP orders. Another one finally showed up a week or so ago so I feel like they'll get here eventually, but at this point I'm definitely within my rights to get a refund, right?

Pokemon already has collector sets
What did you think shining fates, champions path, hidden fates, and shining legends are?

Wow those are beautiful. I've never bought collector boosters but I might for this set.

I've never tried before so I can't say from experience, but that seems like the type of thing they wouldn't care about.

Oh you want me to post the valuable one? This card alone paid for two of the sealed box I bought. With room left over.
>>
>>47021260
>>47021275
That's because people were actually using cards to play the game, not to resell them for thousands dollars.
>>

Well I still sent it in, just gotta hope for the best. Labeled it as a misprint error since the card isn’t “damaged,” it’s just poorly made

This is like pulling a charizard out of a pack and then pretending that's going to be the average experience.
Buying boxes is already stupid. Buying boxes at a ridiculous price of 250+ dollars with ONLY 12 packs is ultimate retardation.
But if you like gambling, power to you.
>>
daily complaint that the new set still isn't on amiami
>>
>>47025122
I’ll gladly wait. With pretty much any other card I wouldn’t care, but I like Tyranitar and pulling a shitty made chase card you actually like is ridiculous. I‘d do the same with Empoleon if I got that cool ass card
>>
>>47025140
what the fuck are you even saying
>>
>>47025087
Those boxes are filled with $10, $30, $50 Holos. Teferi’s, Tainted Pact, are $50+ and Time Warp Is $80, and that’s non Holo. Lightning Bolt is a Rare and the Holo is $40. Plus the art is gorgeous. Not sure why you’re acting like a little faggot that someone likes those Collector Boxes.
>>
>>47024858
Maybe a couple on the back on the card, but on the front is quite annoying.
Bad centering really drives me crazy, but that is bad too.
>>
>>47025159
You are mistaken. I love the art and I love the cards, but buying boxes and packs for them is retarded.
The set isn't even a month old. Those prices will not hold as more packs get opened, you and I both know this. Some of the lesser rarity stuff was 5+ in the last week, and now a lot of the lesser played JP Alt arts are start to go below one dollar for non-foils.
>>
>>47025169
I paid $180 for the fucking box, leave me alone kid.
>>
>>47025069
Yeah you're right. The packs are pretty expensive. I'll take a look at them all and pick out my favorites.

>>47025105
Wow that's a cool card.
>>
>>47025178
Lucky you, but these boxes aren't 180 anymore. It's okay to admit you have a gambling addiction and like the feeling of cracking packs. I like to do it every once in a blue moon too.

Possobly messed with? I believe every ETB is supposed to have 2 good cards guaranteed, usually a full art and a secret or 2 full arts

>>47025664
VMax and V are the two good cards. Battle Styles just sucks that much.
>>
>>47025721
No I mean that standard V and VMAX don’t count. Every ETB has a full art something and usually a secret. I’ve opened over 20 BS ETBs, I only once didn’t get 2 of those types of cards and it was an ebay one that turned out to be repacked.

Damage to a card’s art like this is a bad thing. Not a good thing, which some other misprints are.

Flashfire is garbage so sell them
>>
>>47027289
What sets were they and how much did you pay? You would probably be better off selling them sealed, there's a couple charizards from the set that are kinda valuable but odds are they arent in your packs.
>>
>>47027400
It's a box with 18 XY: Flash Fire packs. Bought them for 45 $ each, I figured they would be worth more since they're out of print.
>>
>>47027439
45 per booster pack or 45 for all 18 packs? If thats per booster pack you got ripped off pretty bad, you can buy this whole set as singles for probably under $300

All of those are valid complaints though.

Are etbs are a shit product or am I just a lucklet?
Opened battle styles and shining fates, got nothing good, opened shiny star and jet black booster boxes and while they weren’t my chase cards there were at least a LOT more hits including a rainbow rare

I have another box of jet black coming in on Friday because I really want to pull that zeraora, then I’m gonna focus on battle styles because there are more than 5 cards in there that I want, but I can’t imagine feeling good about buying etbs despite the price for battle styles being basically retail
>>
>>47028402
You have published rates but if you're watching instagram, twitter, reddit, facebook, etc the pull rates will seem to be much better but that is because noone ever posts the shit pulls.
But if you have average luck it will take several ETBs to get what you're after.
>>
>>47026145
That will be $50 plus tip

Zeraora
Roadrunner
Ttar
Special arts are all I’m chasing for now,
Buying the kahili from lost thunder because boxes are$600 now but besides that there’s nothing, I’ll wait for that espeon to drop in price eventually, I’m not looking forward to E-heroes either, I hope darkrai gets a cool card sometime soon though

I gave a 2 feedback seller a shot, didn't get the card after 2 weeks, asked where it was got a refund straight away and he said "yeah I think it was fake sorry". Looked legit from the photos, I bet he either thinks I lowballed or sold it to someone else.

Not giving you a refund until you asked sucks
