Wow SWCCGstore is really trying to push values up. First the $300 qui-gon, now $35 Lando.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/333592695004

They've consistently been selling in the $10-20 range. Why the price increase now?

Must be trying to replicate the BFBH phenom. I actually almost bought one two weeks ago, but got outbid. My guess is they realized there were only a handful of copies being sold, and just bought them all, and are now reselling.

Yeah, the issue is how incredibly scarce Reflections III cards really are. If a whale literally just wanted to buy up all the high-end premiums, it wouldn't be too difficult.

I had them at about 12-14 for weeks now and they have sold occasionally. Now that my store is on vacation I guess it's time to triple the prices and get what you can before I get back! :lol:

It's very nice that the community has you as a seller who doesn't actively gouge the players. You're like a ceiling to
block some of the greed. Thanks for that!

I wouldn't really call it gouging since it's a totally nonessential good, but I appreciate your kind words regardless! :)

Ones like these are more of an issue:

Lord Vader (non-foil) just sold for $60 w/shipping.

You could have picked these up for around $30 about a month ago.

Of course, the other two money cards in that set (LSJK and Palpie) also doubled recently, so it's not super surprising.

Jeez, seems like only yesterday i was struggling to get 50 for a foil!

As for the nonfoil, I couldn't keep them stocked at 40 starting in late February. And this is after a noted d3cline in demand after Enforcer came out awhile back

How much have you seen card demand tied to playability? I ask out of curiosity as it seems the jedi luke spikes are happening even after his helper card got the ax. Do you have any sense of the percentage of your sales by players vs collectors?

I would say players buy more overall from me, but not by a lot. There are definitely playability considerations in mind for card demand. CC Boba and Smuggler's Blues both went way up after their virtualizations. I'm sure there were others but those two stick out.

There's also a pretty stark difference between Ralltiir and Dantooine Objectives' demand.

On the other hand I have had trouble keeping a lot of unplayable Hoth and ANH R1's in stock at times. R3-T6, Dannik Jerriko, Frozen Dinner come to mind. And when I started in 2015, I was selling stuff like Let The Wookiee Win and Imperial Atrocity but in the past couple years prices have come to grips with the fact that no one wants those anymore for decks. I remember auctioning LTWW for like $8 (this was post-reset) and now it's tough to sell them from my BIN at half that.

One thing that I didn't used to plan for is the obscure C/UC that get a full slip, that some didn't save enough of (myself included). So I have started to keep more C/UC when they used to just go in Medium Flat Rate boxes for auction.

That's a great question. I wanted to know the same thing, so I sent this message:
Hello, is there something special about this particular pack? I noticed I can buy 103 of them from this listing for $300 less than you are charging for one:

Prices like this is what's wrong with the World. I mean, I'm all for free markets, but come on. Either that seller is incredibly lazy (it takes two seconds to look it up, and it's not something obscure like a Japanese misprint), or greedy. At least list it for $99.99 :lol:. Also, Eric that response is golden.

Not sure if its still common practice, but for a while the pc used yj booster packs instead of packing peanuts for event kits since the boosters cost less
