Wow this just proves that the value of the second coming has dramatically dropped.

Well I think it would sell fast if that was the case.

The problem is the timing of the sale. Many who are willing to spend money on an AB TSC already bought one when AB CoW came out. And now that this card, among two other ABs, have been released in PoC boxes the market is becoming a bit flooded with them. Add to the mix people are tapped out financially with buying the PoC cards and Xmas, and no new players being added to the game (the biggest problem with Redemption) the demand is simply not there.

I hope he does sell it. It’s a great price for sure. But value-wise TSC and 3W will remain pretty high due to simple supply and demand. In fact, I feel the AB version of those cards and AB SW will drop even more in the coming months since those are actually easier to get now than the regular border versions. I dropped my prices recently on the RB and AB for 3W and TSC due to the market being slow on those and the availability of them being a little higher. But they are still pricey nonetheless.

Thanks for proving my point the market is flooded so the card is worth a quarter of what it was previously worth. In my opinion this is not good for the game! That's why previous sets are worthless there's not enough people playing the game and way too many cards. If a card is worth $175 in theory but was sold for $40 then it's truly not worth $175.

There is such a thing as “priced to sell” in which case someone can list something below market rate in order to sell it faster because it provides value from the standpoint of not holding onto the item for an extended period of time.

Just because one person sells an item for less doesn’t automatically make the item less valuable. If multiple people start offering the same item for less and/or that supply stays consistent, then “normal” market prices will decrease as well.

However, as Travis has mentioned before, this forum is not all-inclusive of the Redemption market. I would probably go further to say that the majority of the participants on this forum are those who have already had access to TSC and therefore are not really even part of the market for the card.

I am not saying that I think AB TSC is worth $175, but I am stating that I believe stating it is worth $40 now because someone sold it at that price is extreme. In the end, any item is worth what someone is willing to pay for it.

@goalieking I couldn’t have said it any better. It’s like having a yard sale. If you want a certain item gone then you price it to sell, even though it’s worth more than yard sale price in general market value. If you want to sell it for more try Craigslist or eBay. Here endeth the economics lesson.  ;D

I would agree with Kye. I think the true worth of AB TSC is now around $70-90 dollars tops. I do think we have a dearth of players and a slightly saturated market, but I think that market is better than when Second Coming was ludicrously scarce following the cloud release.

This raises a couple interesting questions in my mind.
Will standard border TSC and Woes become more valuable than the alt border? After all, we've now recieved two boxes that have the opportunity to contain the AB versions, and only one with the regular (not to mention that the ABs were given out as tournament rewards). Since they're functionally the same card, the only reason to pick the old version when buying is if it's cheaper or you're a collector.

Will (or perhaps more accurately, How much will) the price of these cards surge back up once phase 2 launches and both URs are PoC? Once these new ABs are no longer being added to the market (especially Shipwreck, which was only available here), how much will demand go up? Obviously there'll be another big influx of these once PoC2 launches, but after that these legacy URs won't be available to unpack at all.

I'm curious where the market for these will end up.
ANB is good. Change my mind.

Well for my first post my point was that the value of the second coming had dropped. I was not meeting that it was only worth $40. I guess I agree with red the value is somewhere around $80. But that's almost $100 less than what the so-called price is for AB. That also makes the original print of the second coming probably less unless you're a collector. The new alternate border of shipwreck the value will probably go up and then they'll find a way to print it later down the road and then the value will drop just like every other card.
