A sealed deck just ended for $46.80. Is this what they are worth nowadays?

Seems to be a lot of interest in these not sure why. Putting together a whole set shouldn't be all that hard if you know what your looking for. I'm sure you could put a few up at $49.99 and they'd probably sell.
BGS 9+ Alpha set 282/295 (97.29%) Avg 9.41
BGS 9.5+ Beta set 283/302 (93.71%) Avg 9.58
BGS 9.5+ Arabian set 35/92 (38.04%) Avg 9.62
BGS 9.5+ Antiquities set 82/100 (82%) Avg 9.64
BGS 9.5+ Legends set 279/310 (90.00%) Avg 9.61

I am the one who won it. It went a bit higher than I expected, but it seems fair.
As for the recent interest in alt 4th; my only appreciation of alt 4th is a sealed starter. I don't care about the individual cards or trying to make a set.

The price, while high, is not horrible given the specifics. Priority shipping is free, which normally runs $5 to $8 or more from other vendors.

And it is prime time for buying holiday gifts. I've always found this next few weeks to get the highest prices for items like this. Because if you need one as a gift, then waiting out the next one isn't always an option.

So long as supply continues, prices should rebound down to the $25 range (+/- $5) after the first of the year.
