Secret Lair: Single Drop

The Street Fighter Secret Lair has come to an end, and I hope you picked up a few. The IP is good, the value will be there, these are sweet cards, and now that we’re getting reprints of the Universes Beyond in The List, I’m all aboard new cards.

One thing I’ve been noticing about Secret Lairs is how the singles are acting. Especially right after people get their drops, they are in a huge hurry to crack it and sell those individual pieces of cardboard. My guess is that there’s two groups doing the early selling: speculators who are trying to get their 20-30% gains locked in and move on, and then the people who wanted just some of the Secret Lair cards and are selling off the rest.

As a result, there’s some Secret Lair cards with impressive singles prices, especially when compared to the set prices. Part of this is that the bonus cards are often in high demand, like the Hadouken Lightning Bolt or the mirror-image Viscera Seer. They’ve added a chase/gamble aspect to these drops, and those cards can soak up some of the value. Let’s talk about some Secret Lair singles we can buy for a great price and get some value.
