TCGplayer recently released its November data showing fluctuations in sealed product value over the course of the month, revealing new trends for the TCG collectibles market (see "TCGplayer Top 25 Sealed TCG Products - November 2020").

Last month (see "TCG Market Analysis: Taking a Closer Look at TCGplayer's Top 25 Sealed Product Prices"), 18 of the 25 products listed showed decreases of up to 23% from the beginning to the end of the month, which established a short term downward trend for the Top 25 sellers. The October data was particularly brutal for the Magic: The Gathering Zendikar Rising  product line; Collector Boosters and Set Boosters lost 20% in value over the month.

Luckily, for WotC, redemption has a name. And, that name is "Commander Legends."

Not only does the Commander Legends product line hold four of the top six slots, it is also experiencing a smaller decrease in product value post-release (between 6%-13%) than Zendikar Rising last month. The only exception to this is the Commander Legends: Commander Deck Set of 2, which took a 29% decrease over the month, but this is likely due to it being a pre-constructed product. The fervor over Commander Legends is rooted in blind-pack products, where collectors can rip packs to find one of the four big hits in the set: Scroll Rack, Vampiric Tutor, Mana Drain, or the coveted Jeweled Lotus (see "Wizards of the Coast Unveils a Jeweled Lotus Card for 'Magic: The Gathering' 'Commander Legends'!").  

As a secondary bit of good news for WotC products, the Zendikar Rising Collector Booster Boxes seem to be finally stabilizing around $200. They took a big hit a month after initial release, but it looks like they have settled into their new price range as their November decrease was marginal.

Pokemon TCG turned in a stellar performance in November as Vivid Voltage Booster Boxes (see "The Pokemon Company International Reveals 'Sword & Shield: Vivid Voltage' ") are going for 35% more than they were on pre-order! The Pokemon TCG continues to be the hottest product on the market as new sealed boxes just continue to shoot towards the moon with no end in sight.

Yu-Gi-Oh! is still going strong as well with their products claiming four of the top ten slots. Their first edition of the Phantom Rage (see "'Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG' Summons 'Phantom Rage'") set release cracked the top five, but the booster boxes lost 27% since their release on November 6. Look to see if these booster boxes stabilize in next month's data.
