They lost over 64 percent of their investment.
Scalpers continues to loose money reselling sealed modern "Pokemon Trading Card" game products; most recently, a scalper lost $70 worth of "Shining Fates" products for only $25 on a popular auction website! Here's a list of these products along with its original MSRP:
MSRP (Single Product)
|2||2021 Shining Fates Collection Pikachu V||$19.99|
|1||2021 Shining Fates Mad Party Pin Collection Bunnery||$14.99|
|3||2021 Shining Fates Booster Pack||$4.99*|
The 2021 Shining Fates Collection Pikachu V is so overproduced my local stores that normally sells out of Pokemon TCG products very quickly has loads this product in stock.
What's ironic is their profits could potentially be subject to store fees and/or taxes. This is why I never make any representations as to whether anything mentioned on this website will attain any future value, condition or longevity.
Question: Did you ever take a loss reselling a sealed Pokemon TCG product? If so, what was this product?
*The Pokemon Company International didn't release single booster packs of Shining Fates. This amount is based on the current market value for this product.
