      Disney cards are always too expensive, like the year they come out they're already 3 or 4 times the original price.
      At least Pokemon was cheap for like 15 years after its inception before appreciating

      Hey moron, it's not scalping in the trading card business. That's just called the secondary market.
      And yes, the game is growing pretty fast.

          Action figure collector here, can confirm this is what scalping is. Whenever i see a toy i want i always just get one to make sure another collector can get one. But ive seen some gays buy whole pallets of toys like lego sets to sell on the aftermarket its horrible

                Yeah. That's not what we're talking about at all. Card games are hugely available on the internet, if some local dick is buying everything in your area. That idiot would just be being a moron and ass. That's a waste of money, especially in this era. And if you think sealed product prices are high, it's always always much cheaper to buy singles, and those absolutely cannot ever be bought out. People try to laughable degrees. A card has to be quite old for that to be at all effective. Idk what to tell you, go play poker if you don't like the market collectible game pieces creates. It's not anything like toys or concert tickets lol.

                Except all the prices were high on that first run. There was no ability to jack the price any further because game stores were already selling boosters at $12 apiece. The boosters are now like $4. Who's the idiots? And those crashes happened pretty quickly, since there were more prints and massive restocked that people knew were coming.

              Game stores buy directly from the source. Scalping is done third party. Game stores don't apply here. Scalpers intercept product intended to go to the end user. Game stores were never the end user. People definitely scalp sealed card game products. Doesn't mean it's a smart investment, but they do it. You could see it with the recent MTG sets like Fallout. Desired decks started commanding creator price like the mothman deck. Undesired ones had to sell for less than MSRP cause they wouldn't move.
              This all happened after most game stores ran through product that they usually sell around MSRP.
              People usually don't buy from third parties until they feel they are out of options.
              Now I don't get why scalpers even bother. It's like a 30% return on investment max after holding on to the product long enough to be scarce (usually like a quarter of a year if the product is hot). And it's only proportional to how much you bought. And of course there's the money you lose from product that never moves. Feels like idiots wasting time that could be spent making more money with better methods.

                You are pretty much pointing out why they aren't scalping. These products are distributed nationally and even world wide. No one entity is cornering the market. Any one that thinks they are scalping, isn't, and is actually actively wasting their time.

                Are they intercepting product intended for the end user with the intent of turning a profit when demand goes up? Then they are scalping. It doesn't matter if they succeed. Scalpers are usually trend hopping speculators who eventually stop when they realize there's no consistent profit to be made, even if they score big once or twice. But there's always someone else to pick up where they left off.

                No one person could order enough brand new Magic boxes and effect the market, especially while the set is still being printed. That's not how card games work. The sheer amount of product is too great to call it scalping at all. It's all just the secondary market.

                There is no msrp. The shops and stores just set the prices. It literally had absolutely nothing at all to do with the amount of product actually in print and available. Once a set isn't new, another set or two comes out, that once new set gets dumped on Amazon at a huge discount. So what's really happening here?
                I'm sure many still remember the pallets of modern horizons two getting landfilled.

                The fact is that there's always more product. One frick buys out the shelf thinking they're clever, well someone did that yesterday too, and the day before. Everyday a restock. There is absolutely no shortage of ways to buy cards. Very rarely are the prices of collectible card game singles actually effected by intentional by outs. The print runs are huge.

                No, there is not. You're an idiot if you think this. In fact, given the subject of TCGs, a market that trives on artificial scarcity, there is no way you can't know this.

                No. Sets typically have a limited print run for TCGs. Unlimited runs only occur if buyouts and scalping happens.

                My point in bringing up Umbreon VMax is that singles up to a certain point are less than average pack price, but alternate printings combined with hype can upset that balance. That makes a weird feedback loop where it increases the price of sealed to make it wildly volatile. It wasn't cheaper for me to buy that fricker even though I bought 2 Evolving Skies boxes on launch.

                >Store B buys A, resells it for $3 a piece

                Customer C gets a markup, but they pay it because they don't need a full shipment of A, and don't have the cash for it. The store makes a profit and can serve 50 customers, and Factory A makes money. Everyone has a benefit.

                Now, let's change that.
                >The factory has a limited run of A for $100
                >Leeches D, E, and F each buy out A from the store every time it's stocked.

                >Customer C can't justify it
                The number of people actually serviced hasn't increased by the Leeches. The stores don't care because they get their sales (or outright know they get sales). Factory A is happy that their artificial scarcity was rewarded. The leeches haven't added anything except a choke point for marketing, even though no single leech controls the entire product.

                It demonstrably does. Any product with scarcity can be scalped. Hell, the Reserve List gets buyouts all the time because even the secondary market is treated like an unregulated stock exchange.

                And the small market size is part of why it's so manipulatable. It's not worth it for any one person to try to resell a couple cards, but someone trading in bulk sealed/opened product has enough sales that they can offset the cards sitting in stock, and since sealed only appreciates in value they're in no rush to offload.

That makes a weird feedback loop where it increases the price of sealed to make it wildly volatile. It wasn't cheaper for me to buy that fricker even though I bought 2 Evolving Skies boxes on launch.

                I guess I was thinking of buying singles for deck building.
                Collecting full sets is a different beast of things. You were really lucky, but I'm guessing a lot of people should have just bought the card lol. Gambling though.

                This.
                Your $120 box could be worth $300 in value or fricking $50. All depends on what you pull. Same with the more overpriced Collector Booster packs, 12 packs @ $250 or more on release and you can still make less than $50 on your entire 12 packs.

                But.....YOU COULD hit the jackpot and make like....$1000!

                Maybe...

                Your $120 box WILL be worth $200 if the EV is high enough and some sucker is willing to pay for it. Stop pretending that pack opening is the same as flipping a box.

      It was, when the cards first came out and supplies were stupidly limited. But by the looks of things the prices have mostly cooled off after a few rewaves.

      Another and much more minor "issue" is probably the Language Barrier for certain foreign markets kinda cucking the potential, where i live they dub Disney movies so kids can watch them even without knowing english, Lorcana? No Translation, so while they might be used as Trading Cards i really doubt kids really play the game. Pokémon was in a similar situation back in the day, everyone traded, barely anyone actually played, going by my own schoolyard at least, the first Card game i actually saw played was Magic, which was also not translated but had a older target audience by being more "Teen", Grognard Tabletop Teen, but still Teen.

      >can't you just make counterfeit cards and build the deck you want as long as everyone you're playing with is cool with it?
      Proxies are a thing and casual players can be okay with it. It depends on the group. Just sleeve your whole deck and put a slip of paper in the ones you want to represent other cards. You can go to all the work of printing out an actual card but it's frequently going to be obvious if it's real or not.

      >why does the cards being "real" and "official"
      Official tournaments are hosted by the publishers, and the publishers want money. So all your card have to be legit. That way, they know they got as many sales as they could out of you. And in 6 months, there will be a new set so you'll need to buy a bunch of the new set as well.

      That's how CCGs make money.

      >If the stats on them are wrong or forged that can be checked with a 5-second internet search
      Anybody dumb enough to change the text on a card is immediately going to get caught in a tournament, mainly because everybody there is going to be familiar with all the good cards and won't believe that you JUST HAPPENED to have a card with higher stats.

      They can call a judge and get your ass banned for trying that. At worst, you're forced to use the card with its intended stats, since there is an "official" card list with "official" stats and that's what gets used.
      (It's so you can being in a japanese card or other foreign language and still use it, and so that errata - official edits after printing - can be consistent.)

        I'm surprised no one has mentioned it so far, but this issue doesn't exist in Japan with most card games, especially with Yugioh and Pokemon. For Yugioh, a $130 card in the US costs anywhere from $5 to $15 dollars in Yen, except Yugioh has a stupid rule where you can use any cards in any language except for Japanese. If Disney really wanted the game to be more accessible and more money, they could just be like Japan.

So they make it more like a toy, where you can get basically everything for cheap, and so kids can spend some pocket change on a card pack and get excited opening it up.

      Go to local weekly leagues, get involved in the community, be a normal member of society.

        Considering they let Pixelborn go on for a year with no issues until now, I would hope they only want him to stop it so they can launch an official version

          It's hard to say why it's happening now. Maybe they do have their own client coming, maybe the first big official tournaments moved them to take action, maybe Pixelborn did something new to cross the line (the Launcher might have done it).

          Either way I hope there isn't an official online client soon. It's nice having more local metas and not having optimized decks figured out a week into a new set being out.

    hell no

    i might get whatever singles with my favorite characters on it but no way am i getting booster packs or playing a knockoff version of magic the gathering

    and just to be clear, i'm not spending money on mtg either. both disney and wizards of the coast are soulless fricktard corporations
