When will Pokemon re-print base sets and other vintage?

I find it funny how this idea makes collectors seethe so hard.
I dont collect, i think it is stupid especially with these prices, but i would 100% pay $50 or whatever for a booster box of vintage if they remade them exactly the same, box art, booster, card etc. Just for the nostalgia of opening it.
I bet thousands of others would too.

I think its obvious they will do this soon too because they'll make a fricking fortune. a few other trading cards have done the same.

I would be great if they progressed through the entire vintage set sup to 2005 or so.

      bruh, im not willing or interested in spending $10k to open a bunch of cardboard children toy cards.
      i bet when they inevitably do this it will be one of their most profitable items ever. even my sisters would probably buy a box just for memories sake, and they have absolutely no passing interest in these as it is.

      They have done it several times already...

      that is not the same. that was a classic line with completely different packaging and sets. im talking identical artwork on the boosters, and booster boxes etc, then rotating through everything from base set up to maybe skyridge or whatever.

      they will certainly do this on base set because they'll make insane money, just unsure if they'll do the rotation/progression.

    yeah I really wish they'd do that.
    Even if they have a watermark or something to differentiate them from the original cards I don't mind.

      It will have the current year and trademark at the bottom, and say pokemon company instead of wizards, but otherwise will be the same, artwork,booster artwork, booster box etc.

      hundreds of thousands, maybe even millions of millennial normies will buy a box of them for nostalgia and open them at $50 a pop. they'll make so much money its a guarantee

    It’s not gonna happen. They make $100+ for each of the millions of modern boxes they sell. Reprinting vintage would degrade that value since investors buy hundreds of thousands of these new boxes.

      That makes absolutely no sense.
      The potential millions of buyers of a reprint of vintage sets are people who are not buying anything modern, will never buy anything modern like myself, and probably people also like myself who aren't even collecting vintage cards.

      basically, normies. They would make an absolute fortune form that nostalgia rush for millennials who are a huge generation, and, as said, these will all be sales which would not take away from their modern sales because these buyers are not interested and will never be interested in buying any modern.

      Maybe they are just waiting for the youngest millennials to hit 30 or so, which should be by 2026

        Ultimately you have to acknowledge that the Pokémon has had this idea and decided it was a bad idea because they haven’t done it. The next question is why is it a bad idea? They are in the business of making new cards and selling them. That business is threatened by undercutting the incentive of their buyers by reprinting vintage at massive volume.
        >but they make more money selling vintage
        Until the nostalgia runs out and nobody is buying their vintage or modern sets. Long term vs short thinking.

          You;re basically saying that the pokemon company beleives their entire market and profitability is from people buying modern expecting a return on an investment, which is called a bubble.

          Yes, they may have a better strategy than releasing vintage again, and i'm going to assume releasing vintage again is part of that strategy later. they obviously will milk the fools buying up modern while they can. that is why i think once it dies down a bit in 2-3 years, they'll cash in on the millions of normies who wouldn't buy modern anyway. They dont have to worry about it sending a message to all the bubble buyers by then because they will already have tapered off.

            Once it dies down in 2-3 years? You understand vintage was once modern? Modern has been selling for more than 20 years. Pokémon is the most valuable media in the entirety of human history. They’re not going to abandon that for a few above average years.

            exactly the type of response i'd expect from some homosexual "collector" lol. how much have you spent on cardboard?

            Honestly comments like these are what make it obvious to me it is i a bubble for modern cards and is going to die down considerably

            modern might be a bubble but if you buy any sealed booster box below RRP you will double your money every 2-3 years, repeat as much as you want.

            thats worked for past 25 years and it wont stop

          Theres a big difference between the very beginning and doing it only once vs reprinting every set that gets popular.

    I find the whole collection and secondary market speculation stupid as frick.
    Recently I cleaned out my parents old house and when I came across a box of my old magic cards my autism decided to make me obsess over getting back into the game in chronological order.
    I decided to order full sets of proxies instead from the internet, I would have preferred to buy original boosters but they don't print them anymore because of the collection aspect.
    Even if I had the liquidity to buy the original cards from the 90s they are so expensive that even if there were a format where they are still allowed to be played people would not do it out of fear of damaging them. Also the creators would get nothing from those sales either since all the money would go to the {{{secondary market}}}.

    In a perfect world (one run by me) they would just print an unlimited amount of each set and change the borders from black to white to differentiate the limited from the unlimited one.

    You're deranged OP. People are telling you simple facts and re-writing in different ways, but you're just rambling n shit.
    They won't make an exact remake for multiple reasons beyond your comprehension. The original was a wizard of the coast product - but wotc lost those rights and now pokemon/nintendo prints the cards themselves. There's no desire to bring back old-fashioned cards. Kids dislike the plain retro style. I've heard them say so countless times. It would be a product only for manchildren and despite what you think, the pokemon executives know which audience they need to appeal. We already have an excessive number of retro-themed reprints Legendary Collection, Evolutions, and 25th Anniversary just to name a few.

      You dont know anything mate.
      Where did i say exact clone cards? they will obviously have current year trade marks and pokemon company trademark not wizards.
      You think of it immediately form your homosexual little virgin card collection mentality.
      Im saying, same box art, booster art and over-all card design.

      It will certainly draw them massive revenue form millennials who are not participating at all and would buy a one off box. i know for a fact each of my normie sisters even would do that. I would do that and i consider myself a normie, and someone who will never participate in pokemon cards otherwise.

      The reason they have not done it is probably to milk the current wave of bubble buyers of modern cards. perhaps they think doing the planned vintage prints would scare them off form buying modern sets, so they will wait for them to taper off first over the next 3-4 years.

      This has already happened on other popular series like Magic, and it is successful. card collecting virgins being scared it will tank prices is probably why they haven't yet(even if it probably wont tank prices). they want to milk them until they lose interest naturally.

          nah you're just an idiot who cant read and is now covering tracks. the thing is...you still look like an idiot no matter how you spin it.

          i said exactly this in the OP. you're just a typical collector without much of a brain and your blood pressure went up a the suggestion of a reprint, so you didn't finish reading the OP.

          I guess it answers my question anyway. Pokemon company are still able to milk you and your type a bit longer before its worth doing the re-release

      Base-Fossil was kind of basic but Team Rocket up to Skyridge was the best era for card art.
      Most of the modern art is boring digital art slop.

    Never ? You can't really do that because sets are just for a limited period of time. They have already launched many different sets based off the first pokemon base sets that look exactly the same but you can obviously tell that it was made recently

    Nobody actually plays Pokémon though, the incentive to reprint cards is only there if people want to actively play with the cards.
