Hey is it me or are TCG products getting super expensive these days? Digimon had a case of short supply for unexpectedly high demand in the newest iteration of its attempt at card games. Yugioh has sudden random stuff like old versions of DMG costing as much as Starlight Rares which I hadn't seen those degrees of spiking in previous years. Pokemon is also strangely spiraling out of control with some full art cards getting 2 or 3 times more expensive... I don't know the details on why it is apparently rocking right now.
I have no idea about MTG but I'm gonna think it is the exception with those random spam of facebook ads of this "Secret Lair" product that usually looks very non-MTG-like and is apparently pretty pricey for the amount of cards it actually provides (honestly I don't think I'm super hooked up on that one but what is the general consensus on that?)
Secret lairs don't cause supply issues. However, a prominent set last summer, jumpstart, was painfully underprinted due to an overestimation of sales drop from covid.
And even the very first Japanese prints of BEWD is going upwards of $1,000, though that's almost entirely thanks to nostalgia.
Secret Lair was... very controversial, as I understand, though I believe that had more to do with mechanics being exclusive to that specific set, including some of the non-MTG cards, like Negan.
