Pokémon TCG Value Watch: Fusion Strike In June 2023
Pokémon TCG Value Watch observes the widening gap between the Gengar VMAX and Espeon VMAX Alt Arts from Fusion Strike in June 2023.
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 – Fusion Strike, which came out in November 2021, are doing now in June 2023.

That is, of course, the Espeon VMAX Alternate Art Secret Rare which itself dropped $9 this month. Both Mew Alternate Arts, including the V and the VMAX, dropped a few dollars as well.
