A topic that has been discussed millions of times throughout the years. I found myself back collecting cards and even Playing The TCG casually with some friends. I'm 29 years old about to be 30. 5 years ago I stumbled across Pokémon Again. From 1997 (When I was 7 years old) to around 2002 or 2003 whenever skyridge ended. That's the timeline that I was Pokecard crazy. Most of us were. I mean I was there in the toy stores buying the first base set booster packs ever, We all did. I had them all... Story of my life and so many others. When I was 12 I started getting into other things. There was A huge stigma in middle school that If you liked Pokémon you were a loser. It was known and made a lot of us quit. As did I. Gave my whole 10 Binder Collection to my neighbor who moved away. And started listening to Punk rock and skateboarding. So 15 or so years pass. I'm like 25 in Walmart. I haven't touched or seen a Pokémon card since way back in 2002. And I see a booster pack in the store. I'm curious why the hell not. Buy it. I have no idea how many pokemon there are im thinking if there were 150 to 250 back when I quit there has to be like 3000 now. I wasn't excited as I really only wanted to open up vintage packs. But I grabbed whatever pack that had a Pokémon on it I recognized. Well It just so happened that I bought an XY Evolutions booster pack. I didn't know any of the new sets. Nothing. When I opened it a whole ton of feelings and memories came back and here I am now 5 years later with a massive XY Sun moon, sword shield and vintage collection. The question : What Booster Boxes, packs or Sets are worth holding onto. Either Sealed or Single. Sealed is what im thinking. I have looked at how prices work between a 10 Year window frame. And Even XY booster boxes (early ones) are rising in price some double already. About right considering they are about 5 years old already. And a lot of them have not rose in price yet. Like Roaring Skies, Breakpint etc. I have studied A lot of the expansions and see how expensive even ones from 13 years ago are. Booster boxes are insane. Booster packs ranging from 50 to 100 dollars and these are not even "Vintage" yet. I understand That any set basically before Skyridge, Expedition or Aqaupolis all the way back to base set is a total different ballpark. But those aside. I believe Prices for every set will rise if its sealed. Sealed Pokémon Products are the most searched item. Ppl want sealed stuff. Question is how many collectors are there VS Competetive Players in the market. Competetive players don't care about that stuff they just want new cards. Single cards. But the Pokémon World is so massive and so Popular its a cash cow. Sets will always rise. Some will be less than others. XY Phantom Forces is already doubled and half will sets less popular "Steam Siege" stay the same. But its the ones in between im focusing on. Im still watching whats happening in the market. But I am starting to get ready to buy XY booster boxes that still are in the 00 range. Watch very soon they will rise in a blink. What do you think?
