IDK what made me think of this but I was just wondering if that would be a "thing".

Doubtful. Singles for LCGs have always been extremely slim.

I'd guess zero. The entire packs aren't expensive, there isn't any uncertainty in what you're getting, and it's extremely easy to create a proxy of something if you want more copies. None of this is tournament.

I can't imagine any single even being worth postage. You could maybe resell packs for a few bucks profit to people who missed them. But individual cards? Not worth considering.

I doubt the financials would make much sense. Netrunner had a little market because cards like Desperado were great and rare. So you could charge a high premium for it. That rarity and demand doesn't really exist so much for AH.

If we get alt art cards from some kind of OP then I wouldn't be surprised to see those traded/sold. As it is, there is no card rarity, so 2 cores and 1 of each expansion is enough to get you literally all the cards.

The resale could be in the form of Encounter sets for the purpose of pre-constructing all the scenarios.

I could also see a slim market for certain cards from the packs if you felt that you needed that flexibility to have 2 copies of a great card and have 2 investigators from the same class running through a campaign.

I don't think that will reflect the experience for a majority of players so I think the demand would probably be very low and not that lucrative of a business.

I'm considering buying an additional core set with each cycle so I can store each campaign in its own long box. I looked at singles a while back when someone posted a link to an online retailer that was selling core singles, but at their prices, I would've paid more than just buying another box new.

Yeah, this will always be the case. Half the cards are encounter cards, then there are the tokens. There's less resale value for that. You're not going to save money on not buying a full core, unless the seller got a pile of boxes which dropped off a delivery truck.

I have the very rare and elusive Lita Chandler available to the highest offer...(joking)Well it's really not that type of game because of all the reasons stated by others above. Core sets are hard to find right now but the reprint is shipping as per FFG web site.
