Pokémon TCG Value Watch: Chilling Reign In June 2023

Pokémon TCG Value Watch observes Sword & Shield - Chilling Reign in June 2023 to see how that rare Blaziken VMAX Alt Art is doing.

The Pokémon TCG is an ever-changing and unpredictable market. Over the past two years, we've seen renewed interest in the hobby due to a number of factors, including the 25th Anniversary, strong Sword & Shield-era sets featuring stunning Alternate Arts, influencers, box breaks, COVID-19 lockdown pushing people to find hobbies, and more. For a time, sets and cards that were readily available quickly became difficult to find. Now that the hype is settling down, let's see where modern sets stand. Every month, I will do an installment of this series, Pokémon TCG Value Watch. This series is not financial advice but is rather a way to help collectors know the trajectory of a card's availability so that Pokémon TCG completionists like myself know when to strike. Today, let's see how the cards of Sword & Shield – Chilling Reign, which came out in June 2021, are doing now in June 2023.

The biggest drops for Sword & Shield – Chilling Reign this month are the Galarian Rapidash V Alternate Art, which is a relatively small drop, and the Fog Crystal Gold Secret Rare, which is a similar drop in dollar amount but means more overall due to this being a lower valued card. Mostly, though, this Pokémon TCG set has remained the same in the secondary market.
