I nearly peed myself with joy a few minutes ago! Decided to get a few packs, since I hadn't been buying too many lately and was feeling like we really needed some good fortune.
Was a little bummed about having lost my last three hundred NLC2 to Obyte in a poker game but this totally makes up for that tiny $3.00 loss!
Obyte is a person on nolimitcoinpoker.com, I don't mean the cryptocurrency. lol
After losing the tiny bit of NLC2 I had, I figured why not spend the last of our STEEM on some Steem Monsters. Seems like a reasonable decision!!
Feast your eyes on one of only nineteen GOLD FOIL PEAKRIDERS!
The current market price for one of these is ... $775.00
So basically, I spent 8 bucks and nearly turned it into 100x as much! Granted, that's only the market price, and whether or not someone will actually pay that for one of these cards remains to be seen. But, if you've been around as long as I have, you probably remember when Alpha Gold Foil cards were super hot and investors were grabbing them up as fast as they could.
I'm sure everyone who around can remember when @haejin was causing all kinds of commotion on Discord with some of his big Gold Foil purchases. If I remember right, he paid @bigdoge16 around $1500 each for a couple of them in particular.
There has been a lot of amazing updates since then, in fact, there wasn't even a playable version of the game at the time! So, if cards were selling for that much before people could even USE THEM, what could they be worth now that there is actually a game that supports them?
I'm not sure!
I put mine on the market for the time being, at least until there is a delegation market on peakmonsters. If it doesn't sell by then, I will just lease the card out to people who want to use it in Gold Foil Tournaments like this one, coming up in less than 4 hours
Update! This bad boy has been sold to @goldmatters! w00t w00t
