The chart provided to ICv2 by TCGplayer of the Top 25 Sealed Products on their platform for December 2020 shows fluctuations in values for the month and illustrates trends for the TCG collectibles market (see “TCGplayer Top 25 Sealed TCG Products - December 2020”).
There's a relatively new game in town, and its sealed product is creeping up the charts: Flesh and Blood TCG turned in some phenomenal sales numbers for December; with Welcome to Rathe First Edition booster boxes cracking the top ten in sales. Over the course of the month, Welcome to Rathe First Edition boxes went from $849.50 to $1938.46, which is a whopping 128% increase in value. Their newest set, Crucible of War First Edition (see "Preview: 'Flesh and Blood' 'Crucible of War' Cards Unveiled!"), came out in August, and boxes have already quadrupled in value in just a few months.
We asked Legend Story Studios CEO James White for comment on the meteoric rise of FaB TCG on the TCGplayer charts. "The team at Legend Story Studios is excited to see Flesh and Blood sitting alongside the major brands of the industry, as decided by TCG fans across North America," he said. "We are very grateful for the support of our fans, retailers, distributors, and content creators, who have collectively championed the design and gameplay quality of FAB, elevating it to be a major part of the TCG landscape going forward."
Aside from FaB's ascent on the charts, ranks of the "Big Three" TCGs remained steady. Magic: The Gathering claimed three of the top five spots on the chart with strong sales of Commander: Legends and Commander Collection: Green.
Pokemon TCG is still on fire (see “Another Heritage Auction Brings Yet Another Record-Setting Sales Number for 'Pokemon TCG 1st Edition' Sealed Product “), as Vivid Voltage booster box values remain well above MSRP.
Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG claimed two slots on the chart with the Phantom Rage and Genesis Impact booster sets, its November and December releases (see “'Yu-Gi-Oh!' Product Release Calendar for 2020/2021”). Genesis Impact, released during the December time frame in which this list was compiled, charted at a healthy #6.
