Welcome fans and speculators of shiny cardboard and nostalgia, this it the /TCG/ and collectibles general on biz. Pokemon, MtG, Yugioh, Metazoo, Digimon, Video Games, etc

What have you been buying? What trends do you see in the next 5-10 years? Personally, I am stacking WOTC-era, first-edition Pokemon slabs and I have recently gotten into Metazoo. Retro video games are also a top-tier alternative investment, IMO.

My career is still rising, have to disagree with you. I believe we'll see even more people getting into Pokemon TCG seeing as the younger generations continue to be interested in it. Same thing with video games.

Kek, nice.

I don't play MTG anymore but ive seen that guy. Honestly, doesn't seem OP or anything, especially in modern or something. When i was playing still, WOTC was desperately pushing midrange and creature-based play.

>> No.51621785

Youtubers were willing to pay for content and deduct the expense. So they bought unopened cases of cards for hundreds of thousands of dollars to make content. The cards are worthless. The content had value. Retro games are similar. Retro content has value and the expense is deductible. If you buy collectibles you are rekt.

>> No.51622096

Slow morning on Biz. I've noticed this thread picks up in the afternoon when the degenerates wake up.

Sure, the content is valuable. However, the collectibles themselves are obviously valuable as well. Have you ever gone into a shop dedicated to Pokemon? It's crazy. I went to one yesterday and it was full of kids, people in their 20's, people in their 30's...

Guess I'll post my gamebook stack here too. I bought these from ebay over 10 years ago in big lots of books (came out to $1.50 or less per book). I managed to get all the earlier Fighting Fantasy gamebooks, except House of Hell. I kinda dropped out of ebay after they started raising fees, and I guess now these books cost a lot more, so I'm not going to get back into collecting them anytime soon.
I never really got into M:TG or other cards. Bought a single pack of M:TG when they came out around 1994, but even though I liked the art, the game itself didn't interest me. I was into tabletop RPGs at the time, specifically AD&D, but sometimes we also tried other games like d6 Star Wars, GURPS, Call of Cthulhu.

>> No.51622508

Don't know about the vintage stuff, but Pokemon purchased a printing factory a few months ago. They can reprint literally any modern sets to death and ruin all the scalpers. There's already a second wave coming for the Charizard UPC that got sold out instantly and can probably go on much longer.

>> No.51622618

Doesn't matter. There are fakes on par with the real ones now or better, chances are alot of yours are fake and you have no idea. Just because you think you're a pro collector doesn't mean you aren't filled with fake shit. I have a set of 1st edition WOTC holos, they're 100% the same as originals including the texture and smell. This is a dying hobby simply because of this, and once the deep fakes are rampant the company will begin diluting old sets and re-releasing.

Sorry kids.

>> No.51623331


What is it? I see Metazoo as the best new TCG, frankly.

Sick, very jealous of the Mothman's and Wendy. I have never seen that North Pole card before. But yeah, jelly, best zoo collection I've seen. Mothman is the metazoo equivalent of Charizard so expect those to go up for certain.

Those books are really cool. Are they worth something now? Never heard of those before. I tried playing D&D with some friends but couldn't get into it.

You're not wrong, however, if a modern set is any good (Evolving Skies) it will still be valuable despite reprints. People cannot get enough of ES.

Show me these world-class fakes then. If you spend any time in TCG's you can pretty easily spot fakes, in my experience.

I'd say its worth the risk. First printed sets usually do very well for any TCG. Don't really know which language to focus on but english usually holds a higher premium for most TCGs.

The biggest draw for this TCG is the exclusive artwork produced by the people who do the manga. They are painting brand new illustrations just for the TCG.

This nami card is selling for $$350+ and is one of those exclusive illustrations. Believe or not its not even the chase card of the set.

As a seller on both it almost certainly means higher fees on tcg player. and it’s obvious tcg players acquisition of Channel Fireball was at the behest of EBay who is trying to monopolize the card selling market. Hopefully they bring $.50-$1 standard envelopes with tracking to tcg player. It’s too easy to lie on tcg and say your card never came because there’s no tracking for most cards.

>> No.51635064

>Honestly, doesn't seem OP or anything, especially in modern or something.
That the point. Compare it to twenty years ago, ten years ago, even five years ago and it would truly astonishing.
It's an amazing card by historical standards. Downright unplayable in any format because it doesn't immediateoy replace itself, have haste, or have protection from counterspells/removal

6/6 for 5, that's already a discount. Has four positive abilities. But it's unplayable in competitive, because power creep has gotten that bad.
How many 5/5 for five creatures have been rendered irrelevant due to this objectively better card. What reason is there to ever slot a green fatty in your deck that is worse than this one?
By printing this strictly better card, WotC made 100+ cards in the past strictly worse. This is the poison of power creep.
Power will continue to creep because WotC has gone to the dogs, and Maro is a silver tongued liar.
Any good card you buy today will be worth less and less in the future, not just because they get power creeped by new variations, but also because the vast majority of players don't want to have to replace half their deck every block just to compete.

Apparently those books go for a lot on ebay nowadays. I didn't check, and I haven't use ebay in a very long time (in fact my account expired because I didn't log in for years).
But I can't say I'm surprised if these books cost a lot now, because most "retro" stuff is in a bubble. Otherwise I'd be buying old computers, games, books, and other cool stuff.

I played it long ago (late 80's) and don't remember a thing about it. But that'll just make it more fun to play again. The only one I played recently is Forest of Doom, and I got slaughtered by some bandits on my way out near the north of the forest. These books are pretty deadly if you're honest and don't cheat. Especially so if you had bad luck with your character generation and ended up with shit stats.

Anyway here's #2 of the "real" Choose Your Own Adventure series (Journey Under the Sea). Got into these in the early-mid 80's, they were basically the first gamebooks. Around the same time I also played my first computer text advetures, and those were a lot of fun too!

Comic flipper here. I dont hop on /biz/ that often but its Super cool to see a thread like this so i'll provide some insights

Yes, TCGS, sports cards, all collectibles are basically dead right now.


Well to understand that, you gotta understand why collectibles make for a decent way to store capital. They perform a little like stocks except they have an insanely low float. There usually is never a ton of one collectible available for sale at any point in time. So even small gains in demand can cause the price to rise dramatically.

The other secret to success is that these things are easy to store, easy to hold and they often have emotional components to them. You don't see a lot of AF15's floating around because people WANT to own spiderman's first appearance. which acts sort of like a gas pedal on the price of a book like that.

Right now the collectible markets sobered up and realized that they are MASSIVELY overcapitalized. Things are just worth way too goddamn much. So now the prices are theoretically falling. I say theoretically because it takes volume of sale to "price in" an adjustment. Stocks are easy because there are thousands of transactions a day for most stocks. people make money long and short so there is a lot of incentive to buy and sell all over the place.

Collectibles don't have that. Negative changes in price bring the volume of sales down, which means that it takes longer for the market to adjust and adapt to negative price adjustments. People have to die/get sick, collections need to be liquidated, etc.

The forecast? A lot of crabbing as these low volume markets bleeds their excess capitalization at a snails pace plus the usual downturn in activity that you see during recessions. Assume these shitty lowball offers you've been getting won't seem to be so bad a year from now.

Also, once you start to learn how the game is played, I highly recommend playing Shandalar. It's a single player mtg game where you wander around with your deck and face off creatures to get more cards and gold. It's a broken, buggy piece of shit, but it lets you play mtg like it was back in the day, meaning power nine, strip mine, black vise, mishras factory, ancestral recall.

Digital card games are overall a better product and they have the ability to do things that physical card games cant do (like randomly generate a card that is not in either players decks). At this point we're just waiting for the game to emerge that really illustrates just how much better a fully digital experience can actually be.

>What is it? I see Metazoo as the best new TCG, frankly
MetaZoo is the next Pokemom; Flesh and Blood is the next Magic the Gathering.

Both are great to play and collect. I don't believe MTG will die however WOTC has the game on a downward slope.

Meanwhile Pokémon is just played out at this point.

I have a 50k collection of tcg products. I enjoy the hobby.

I recommend all anons who want to jump in purchase Kickstarter MetaZoo cards; and Welcome to Rathe Alpha (first edition) Flesh and Blood cards.

Feel free to ask questions and I will provide further guidance. Would love more anons to jump into the hobby. It's amazingly fun and can be profitable.

>> No.51651422

>Any plans for an electronic version of metazoo or flesh and blood?

MetaZoo you can play on TTS (Table Top Simulator) but you need you get into a mz server to find matches which can be annoying. MZ is planning to create an official tcg client on par with mtgarena here soon.

There is a new online site to play flesh and blood called Talishar.net
The ui is pretty clunky but the site is otherwise functional and I'm able to find marches at any hour of the day.

FYI, I've been Mythic in Mtg Arena. Don't waste your time on that game. FAB and MZ are light-years better.

Your entire take is awful. Collectibles are essentially high risk assets and volatile in nature. The vast majority of investible assets became bear markets in the last year and collectibles were no exception.

The only point you were correct on is wild spice swings can occur based on relatively low volume. Collectible portfolios will return juicy multipliers during the next bull market.

>What makes these so special?
MetaZoo KickStarter cards are essentially first edition Pokémon cards, except even rarer. The only way to acquire the KS cards at release was to fund MetaZoo from its initial KickStarter Campaign that ended in the summer of 2020 iirc.

Here is a link where you can find more relevant information:


I might add: whats great about MZ is the team behind it is dedicated to transparency and collectibility. They are very open with print runs and what their plans in the future are.

Iirc there was a promo Machamp and all of them were stamped 1st edition. You likely have one of these and they are relatively without value. Definetly not a few hundred even if a psa 10.

The TCG ship has sailed. Any game without an established market already is doomed, especially now that most of the tcg community is already invested in their games of choice.

The tcg field is feeble and great companies will fail simply because the current market state is bad and their timing was off.

It also doesn't help that numerous kickstarter tcgs have outright scammed their founders and big stories have dropped on this topic over the last few months. Even sorcery pushed back the release date of their products because they were unable to secure a contract with cartamundi on a workable timescale. Now they are having their cards printed in China and backers are pissed.

>> No.51651982

>Are there any cards that were one per case (1 card per 12 booster boxes)?
The big hitters in kickstarter will be Mothman, full holos in general, and any of the reserve list cards.

If you want the ultra rare cards, I recommend looking into red ink / blue ink/ / old scratch / and the green man.

These cards aren't from KS, but they are 1 /100 iirc and each is worth thousands.

Antiques are a fantastic way to make some money, and to decorate your place and self like a gentleman with some class. I dabble a bit into this and the vintage market for profit and things to keep at the same time, honestly I multiply my money constantly off the things I buy around here. No idea why biz is avoiding this opportunity, it's literally selling items to the rich, old people, museums, and foundations for massive returns, preferring to buy things that are only selling to a few wealthier people in their 30s-40s instead of the ones that drop 5k on a ugly piece of art or a shiny piece of costume jewelry.

Wow, super cool man. That copy of The Hobbit is beautiful.

Thanks for your input. I know next to nothing about comic books. I think your view on collectibles reflects the larger asset 'bubbles' we're seeing in traditional markets. I am still very bullish on collectibles for the reason that I believe nostalgia is going to command a premium in the Information Age and with rising wages and standards of living globally, more and more people will pour money into these things.

Yes, lots of MZ folks here, love to see it.

First time seeing GPK here since I've started this thread lol. Funny enough, my GF, a 24 yr old Zoomer, loves these things. These are the OG's right? Probably worth something but have no clue desu. I showed her these and she was jelly.

I went into a Pokemon TCG store this weekend and based on that, it's far from dead. People from all ages geeking out over cardboard. They had a whole room of people in the back playing digimon or some shit lol.

I flip things on ebay and dabble in antiques very little. That is a beautiful ring though anon.

I agree with you. I think Metazoo needs to push into anime/video games to extended their footprint but after cracking packs and watching gameplay, yeah there's something about this game.

Now tell me how the last 5 - 10 pokemon sets are fairing? The Pokémon company has the explicit right to reprint the fuck out of any modern pokemon product. In fact they already reprinted evolving skies and likely will again in the future.

That's what's great about games like metazoo and even flesh and blood. Mz announces upfront what their print runs will be then the set is out of print; and flesh and blood announces when a set is out of print.

Meanwhile the higher any modern pokemon goes the more likely it will be reprinted.

Your problem is you are only focusing on the 1 or 2 sets that are doing well over the last 20 - 30 sets that were printed in the same timeline.

Modern Pokemom is a dogshit investment and aside from 1 of 2 cards per set, the newer cards are all generic and soulless. Most of the tcg whales abandoned pokemon because there are better games with more upside available nowadays.

I think you're both right. There's no doubt that Evolving Skies is going to go down as a chase set. There is actually a reprint coming/recently dropped for the set but yes, it has been gobbled up and for good reason. The moonbreon may actually go to 1k in the long run.

I bought a UFO pack locally. The only card I really wanted was Polybius which i got.

>> No.51665012 [DELETED] 

All the sets with a mothman

Kickstarter Blister Promo
CN1 Blister Promo
CN2 Blister Promo
Magicast (Has two a butterfly style mothman and a kid in a mothman costume)
Cryptid Nation REVIVE
Nightfall REVIVE

I would highly rec keeping an eye on Magicast mothman if you can. Print run was between 5-10k roughly with 5 packs per box and the price has held steady since release. Another good one is the Nightfall mothman which is steady 40-60 on ebay. I recently picked up a RH mothman for 50 bucks, now is the time to scoop them cheap. Avoid CN2 for now unless you buy the boxes sealed it isn't worth holding the singles.

I dumped all of my Metazoo because I simply don’t believe it has a future. The only way I see it having a chance is if they force Mike out. And even then you still only have the same couple thousand people buying the product over and over. I don’t see how Metazoo is bringing in new people with anything that they do.

Anything of extremely high value will have to get a appraisal for said piece, then you have to start manually contacting auction houses with this info to find one that does really well selling said type of items, look into their past sales on similar items to see the prices they normally fetch.

Less than 1% of pokemon products/cards have any real value. Opening pokemon booster boxes is almost always disastrous from an ev perspective. The chance of earning a positive return on cracking pokemon products is exceedingly rare. Even the pokemon youtubers that open pokemon sealed everyday point this out. It's no secret. I don't think you're being very persuasive pointing out the 1 cards/products that are desirable out of 100 products that are worthless. If pokemon is your thing then that's fine but holding any of the modern stuff is extremely risky, especially after the pokemon company announced they printed BILLIONS of pokemon cards throughout the covid Era.

>Hey Anon, I just looked at MetaZoo and it looks pretty cool, I want in. Any advice for someone starting out on what packs to buy?

If you want to play metazoo, id recommend getting the dingbelle cn2 themedeck to start, and perhaps a booster box of each metazoo set.

You may want to checkout websites such as the castersociety.com in order to get ideas concerning what decks you could build.

The next metazoo set: seance is going to introduce dual auras. This will disrupt the mz meta significantly as there are 10 different auras which can be blended together.

As it stands the Metazoo 2023 Casters Cup (basically the world championship) is planning 1.25million in prize support. $500,000 going to the first place winner alone.

No other tcgs offer anything close to these amounts and the plan is to increase the prize pool each year. The team at metazoo is aiming for global reach and plans to be around for decades.

Anyways, if you're asking what product to buy you can't go wrong with cryptid nation 1, cryptid nation 2, and nightfall. Those are the first two sets, and both are out of print.

Okay but look at X/Y evolutions. How much of that shit was printed and even with the recent market dip it is still above 800 USD a box? Am I telling people to go out and rip every modern set? No but if you are careful with picking your sets you can do very well and if the set has a lot of alt hits like evo skies it stands to reason it will do well in the long term. Again I am talking about holding sealed product over a 5-10 year term.

I get your point about modern being highly reprinted but you guys are forgetting the card inflation to pull these rare cards too. You would need on average to rip almost 2k packs to guarantee a moonbreon hit. The ratio for vintage packs was 1/10 of that. It's okay to not think modern is a good investment but when there is clear evidence certain sets have performed well and now out of print sets have continued to rise you are just arguing with a brick wall

I am looking to buy Nightfall box next. Already bought Wilderness since it was very cheap. I don't know if MZ is 'top dog' in the sense of sales, popularity, etc, but I do have a good feeling about it's future. Go look at the Metazoo IG page and check their story if you have doubts of people playing/caring about the game.

Extremely based. The summer islands cards are gorgeous - the Mew one is one of my all time favorite artworks for Pokemon.

A lot of us would say Metazoo. But the anon below who mentioned the Charizard UPC is probably right. Be warned, they will print the shit out of it but it probably won't affect the price because MUH Charizard.

Very nice. Some great games there. CIB Nintendo games are going to continue to increase exponentially, imo.

Interesting, thanks for sharing. Seems like a viable option to 'corner the market' on something like this.

They're definitely worth something. Do some comps on ebay and put them up for auction.

One of the reasons I want to learn to play the game is to participate in that tournament. Excited for online play to come as well, where I live i don't think there is much of a scene...

No. If you want to purchase MTG, then ignore the new stuff. Load up on Alpha MTG cards. They are essentially blue chip assets.

>Is this Metazoo shit gonna give me AIDS, or will this be another dead TCG in a year?
MetaZoo has a 20 year plan. The game will release in ' 2-3 year blocs' each depicting cryptids native to a particular region of the world. For instance, the 1st bloc is called Cryptid Nation, and focuses on the cryptids of North America. The 2nd bloc will be called Yokai Island, and will focus on cryptids native to Japan and Asia. The 3rd bloc with be Grimm's Kingdom, and will focus on European cryptids. And so on...

What's most important about MetaZoo is it is NOT just a card game. The creators plan for it to have an IP similar to Pokemon. There are already comics, characters, a story, books, and a Netflix series in production. The team at MZ is truly shooting for the moon.

>Checked. Where are some good sites to hunt for deals? Is eBay a good place?
There have been amazing deals on eBay recently if you keep an eye on auctions ending soon. You can also purchase on TCGplayer. However some of the best deals are found in MetaZoo Marketplace groups on FB and Discord. I've done hundreds of deals through these venues and have yet to been 100% ripped off, but I have had issues with orders and had to send stuff back on occasion. Just make sure you properly vet whoever you're dealing with if you decide to go through these channels.

I wouldn't buy from there that is way to expensive. Check black border society for way better deals.

I've always been a big yu gi oh fan but always sticked to the videogames, i'd like to start collecting some cards mostly because i like the designs and having a chance for profit would be a nice extra on top, which packs are worth getting nowadays?

All the cheaters in the tcg world are known to play Yugioh. It's the only one of the big 3 tcgs that is likely going to outright die. There's a reason no one talks about Yugioh and thats because the market action and gameplay are subpar.

>I have information about a card that is a for sure thing to 2x - 3x
>stay posted for more information

Lmao what a perfect example of the type of person that composes the Yugioh community.

thrift stores in the middle of nowhere where owners dont care about checking ebay for toys and video games because they think the money is in furniture

the cooler they look and the more colorful they are is generally when they are more valuable
if you see ones that don't have holographics on them they are usually worthless unless old

Metazoo did an exclusive blister pack for target that includes a smokey bear beastie.
I fucking love it. I may buy a few to hold on to, Smokey bear is still iconic and has a surprisingly big fanbase after decades of just being a PSA mascot for the forestry service.

*artifact, not beastie. Not that it's even a playable card

This year I got into pegging against inflation somehow, so I've been selling some cards. My old collection I accumulated in the 2000's was stored at me mum's and never moved, so tons of classical cards, over 200 rares, but also all kinds of conditions because kids are fucking retarded.
Recently, sales have dropped sharply. When I'd get 2-3 requests for pictures a week for the first 2-3 months of selling, right now I have been without even a message for over 2 months.

>Has Pokemon peaked?
Definitely not, I think people just have better financial decisions to make right now than buying cardboard, and those who STILL are blissfully unaware of world events and buy cards probably go for pristine quality.

Japanese gradings are MUCH harsher than even European ones.
I once bought a perfectly fine video game (was it Tales of Eternia, PSP?) for 200 yen because the box had a visible scratch and the manual was missing.
Japanese "C Condition" is roundabout American "Mint"

I don't think people here in the west give a shit about Japanese grading companies.

I'm from Europe and we have tons of a grading companies and yet people still choose to grade their cards with PSA/BGS
