The pre-release period for the Saiyan Showdown set began on November 12th for most regions, giving players and collectors their first taste of the latest booster. Now that the first sales are being made, the initial market prices are being realised. These values will no doubt change after the official release of the Saiyan Showdown booster set on November 19th, but does give an interesting insight into the most valuable cards of the set and what to look out for when opening packs.
Disclaimer – All the sales mentioned in this article happened between November 12th and November 17th. As there are limited card copies on the market during the pre-release period, these values are likely to change after the set is officially released.
