Is the Pokemon TCG a good investment in 2022?

The Pokemon TCG is a fascinating hobby, but over the years this hobby has turned into a lucrative investment opportunity for many. You’ll now see people buying cards directly from reseller markets to complete their collection.

So if you happen to have a card that someone wants to complete their collection, you have a buyer for a Pokemon card. And the rarer the cards, the less is the supply, and basic economics dictates when something is low in supply, the prices will sore. This has created a massive reseller market!

In this article, we’ll let you know if you should start your collecting journey as an investment. By the end of this post, you’ll have a brief understanding of this market which will help you make the right decision.

The TCG cards are sold by the official Pokemon company via retailers across the globe. You can get the new TCG booster packs at any local retailer or online shop if you want. The recent cards are printed in abundance so that every customer gets to start their collection.

Due to this, there is an abundance of rare Pokemon cards from modern sets. Whereas the older sets are very rare, and this is where most of the money is to be made.

The cards from the first edition base set are the ones that have really high price points. Most of the rare cars from the base set are being sold for thousands of dollars, and in some cases, for more than $100,000!

The newer cards are cheaper to hold but are available in abundance, so their price might never rise. So collecting more unique sets isn’t the best investment that you can make, yes you can get $10-20 of profits on reselling a rare card, but the amount of money you’ll spend buying the booster packs will easily outweigh the profits. Rather than that, just buy some cards from the base set, and wait for the price to appreciate.

I’m not saying that cards from the current sets might never become popular in the future and reach crazy price points, but the odds of that happening are very low. And that's the Pokemon TCG as an investment for you!

The TCG might be an oinveste,mnt for you, but for these ten biggest Poketubers it's their life!
