Disney Lorcana, a competitive trading card game set to officially launch on August 18, is already causing a frenzy in the market. Cards featuring beloved Disney characters like Mickey Mouse, Lilo and Stitch, and Elsa from Frozen are fetching hundreds of dollars.
Although the official release is still a few days away, early sales of Disney Lorcana took place at Gen Con, the largest board game convention in North America. Attendees who were lucky enough to find rare Enchanted variants of the cards, which are not guaranteed in a regular booster pack, are now selling them on eBay at exorbitant prices.
Aurora from Sleeping Beauty, in the Enchanted version, sold for $250, while Stitch sold for $325, and Elsa fetched an impressive $750. The prices are fluctuating wildly as collectors are yet to determine the true value and rarity of these cards in booster packs.
As the full release of Disney Lorcana hasn’t occurred yet, the market remains volatile. For instance, Enchanted Simba is listed by different sellers at $350, $1,000, and $2,500. The final valuation could range anywhere between $30 and $5,000, or possibly even higher in the future. The future value of these cards is uncertain.
Trading card games are notorious for their high-prices on collectible pieces, with certain “necessary” or “staple” cards commanding several hundred dollars each. However, these Enchanted cards offer a deliberately rare and collectible variant, making them the most sought-after and expensive items in standard Disney Lorcana sets.
However, the most expensive cards in the game are likely the exclusive set released during last year’s D23 event. These six cards, featuring Mickey Mouse Cruella De Vil, Elsa, Captain Hook, Maleficent, Robin Hood, and Stitch, were initially priced at $2,000 during the event, but they are now being listed at a staggering $20,000 less than a year later. The potential value could skyrocket even further as the popularity of the game grows.
Magic: The Gathering is notorious for producing high-value cards, such as a recent Lord of the Rings card based on The One Ring, which sold for a staggering $2 million. Other highly sought-after cards have sold for several hundred thousand dollars.
In our preview of Disney’s take on the trading card game genre, IGN described Disney Lorcana as “an enjoyable game to play casually. It boasts stunning card art, leverages the extensive Disney library, and offers simple and fast-paced gameplay.”
