I just spent $800 rebuilding my Set 1 collection...
« on: March 02, 2022, 05:23:47 PM »
I decided I wanted to get 4 copies of every Fellowship block card. I ended up spending $800 just on set 1 alone. To clarify, my original cards were lost/stolen around 2009 and never really built it back up other than buying a few booster boxes here and there when it was cheap. Fully $250 of that $800 was spent just on copies of Goblin Swarms, Goblin Armory, Servant of the Secret Fire, and Savagery to Match Their Numbers. Crazy how high some of these prices have gotten but it's worth every penny. Hopefully Mines and Realms won't set me back too much...

Btw I decided to only go for 1 copy of every Towers and King block card. The reality is if I ever get around to playing again in person, it will probably be Fellowship block exclusively. I may decide to get 4 copies of every Rohan and Dunland card in sets 4-6, since those were my favorite decks to build in Towers block and that would give me one solid deck to play with.

Any other very pricey (>$20 USD) cards in Mines or Realms I should be aware of?

Go for it. Singles are probably your best route since a Mines box will run you $150-200  and a Realms box 200-300 (if you can find one).

As far as expensive cards in those sets I'd say it's just the usual suspects in Mines and Realms: Flaming Brand, Aragorn HttWC, Gondor Bowmen, Saruman KOI. Most of the others are pretty cheap.

Yep, Saruman KOI has been my only challenge so far. I have two but need two more, and right now there are no non-foil versions of that card on ebay. Only card I've seen that happen to so far.
