Hobby Boxes
Good Evening,

Can anyone recommend any new product that would be worth buying and investing in the product i.e. Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokemon? A product that would have some high priced cards to take a chance on collecting.

Appreciate any insight.

RE: Hobby Boxes
When it comes to gaming cards, its kinda hard to predict...in Yugioh, the price fluctuates according to the rarity and how it affects the meta structure of the game. In other words, if its a shiny card (Super Rare, Ultra Rare, Ultimate Rare or Ghost Rare) and it wins games, the price can be ridiculously high. Once a new expansion set comes out and the card is not as good anymore than the price will drop tremendously...or if in many cases it gets reprinted as a rare or common in tin cans or special sets, the price will drop...the same goes for Pokemon and others...With Magic The Gathering, its almost the same but since magic has several different gaming structures ranging from Standard, Modern, Extended, Vintage, Legacy and now the ever so popular EDH...some of the cards retain their value. Mainly because if its a versatile rare or mythic rare card...those cards can now be used in any format. So my best bet would be to invest in Magic The Gathering. Ever since EDH became sanctioned in tournaments, rare (especially foil cards) from past expansions became very popular and prices started soaring. 1.00 cards turned into 6.00-10.00 cards and their foil parallels shot up to 40.00-50.00. Hope this helps...

Alex
