Maybe i'm wrong... but this seems like one time where guessing on a base set before it comes out could be a mistake...
Totally agree with this reasoning. I presold sets for MA Heritage and sold 40 sets by the time it released. Within days the sets' value collapsed (as they always do when base sets are found one per box). But this time I am not preselling sets because of points 2 and 3 above. Maybe I am wrong too, lol, but worth the gamble.
