What makes these 10 stickers so expensive?
All of these stickers have one thing in common: They are tournament stickers from the EMS Katowice 2014 major. As the name would suggest, these stickers were introduced during the aforementioned tournament in March of 2014. Unlike a lot of later tournament stickers, these ones were only available in normal and holo versions. Foil or golden versions were not available as obtainable items, but you could get foil stickers pre-applied on souvenir items. The Katowice 2014 stickers were the first-ever tournament stickers in CSGO. Stickers themselves were only introduced a month earlier in February of 2014, so the whole concept was still new. The stickers can be unboxed from tournament capsules, with Challengers and Legends capsules available. These capsules were available for purchase at a price point of $1 each and even went on sale for $0,25 per capsule for a few days. So, how is it possible that these stickers are now the most expensive ones available in CSGO?
The answer is simple: Back in 2014, not that many people were playing CSGO or investing in CSGO items. The whole CSGO economy was only a year old, and no one really knew how big it would get. So, these capsules were not sold that much, making these stickers rare. When CSGO became more popular and the economy started to boom, the stickers were highly sought after for their great looks, causing the prices to skyrocket. Today, there are only a few dozen of each holo sticker and a couple hundred of the non-holo stickers left. The capsules are basically fully decimated, with less than 500 known capsules remaining. And almost 100 of these are confirmed to be on VAC banned accounts.
Applying one of these super rare and old stickers to a newly released skin became a status symbol for rich collectors, so the last remaining stickers are still being applied, causing the prices to increase with each sticker used up. In a few years, CSGO might run out of these stickers completely. But enough of the history behind them, let us take a look at the stickers!
10. Clan-Mystik (Holo) | Katowice 2014
Our top 10 starts at the bottom of the list with the Clan-Mystik (Holo) sticker. With a price of around $6000, this sticker is already very expensive. But on this list, $6000 seems almost cheap when compared to some of the other stickers. The black and orange sticker has a decent holo effect, but the overall sticker design is not that popular. The team was also disbanded in March of 2014 and never had any huge success, so it only makes sense that not too many fans are out there buying up these stickers.
9. HellRaisers (Holo) | Katowice 2014
The next sticker is the HellRaisers (Holo). Their devilish red logo was always a staple in CSGO stickers, so their recent logo change did not go over too well with the fans. The Katowice 2014 sticker of course still has the original logo and a cool fiery holo effect to top it off. Unlike many later HellRaisers stickers, this one is more orange than red, giving it a unique look that fits in well with skins like the Desert Eagle Blaze.
8. LGB eSports (Holo) | Katowice 2014
The LGB eSports sticker is nice and simple. A big red logo with a holo effect, what is there not to like? The main factor why this sticker is not as special as other Katowice 2014 stickers is the fact that the holo effect is not that unique. The effect is similar to the Katowice 2015 LGB sticker, though the 2014 version is an overall much cleaner sticker.
7. Natus Vincere (Holo) | Katowice 2014
Natus Vincere, mostly just referred to as NaVi, is a team that is still going strong in CSGO today. The Katowice 2014 version of their team logo is the same one they use today, but the holo effect has never been rivaled by any of the later tournament stickers. It has an extremely nice holo effect that goes through a lot of different colors and fits in with basically any skin.
6. Team Dignitas (Holo) | Katowice 2014
The Team Dignitas (Holo) sticker is one of the cleanest stickers from the Katowice 2014 major. With no writing except for the Katowice 2014 at the bottom, this sticker is literally just the team logo with a perfectly applied holo effect. It is no wonder that this sticker is used in a lot of great-looking CSGO skin crafts. While Dignitas stickers also exist from other tournaments, none of these stickers are quite as clean and good-looking as the original. The Cologne 2014 Dignitas holo sticker is close, but it has a noticeable background.
5. Team LDLC.com (Holo) | Katowice 2014
Another very colorful sticker is the Team LDLC (Holo). With the base color of the letters LD being reddish and the LC being blue, the two sides of the LDLC logo will always shine in different holo effect colors, giving this sticker a unique and very nice look. The overall blueish theme of the sticker makes it pair well with a lot of skins and it has recently been used on great crafts on skins like the AWP Gungnir or even the newly released M4A4 In Living Color.
4. Vox Eminor (Holo) | Katowice 2014
The Vox Eminor sticker is another simple and elegant sticker with a full-color spectrum holo effect. While the sticker looks orange in the preview, it is actually super colorful in-game. The Vox logo itself also looks nice with the little face in the middle. The Vox sticker has become of the most sought-after stickers, even the Katowice 2015 version is worth over a thousand dollars, which goes to show how well-liked this team logo is.
3. iBUYPOWER (Holo) | Katowice 2014
Our top 3 is starting out with one of the most legendary CSGO items out there, the iBUYPOWER (Holo) sticker. This sticker used to be the most expensive one for quite some time, but it has recently been outshined by two other stickers. Apart from the nice logo design and bright red color, the iBUYPOWER team also became infamous for the first big CSGO match-fixing scandal. In a match against NetCodeGuides in August of 2014, the iBUYPOWER team lost the match on purpose. It was later discovered that this was done so some people who knew about it could win bets placed against the heavily favored iBUYPOWER team. This led to the ban of all involved players from future CSGO majors and became part of CSGO's history. The price mentioned here is based on recent sales, but is most likely even higher at this point in time.
2. Reason Gaming (Holo) | Katowice 2014
The Reason Gaming sticker became popular relatively recently. The sticker has a lot of surface area and therefore an extremely nice and big holo effect. A lot of these stickers were used for high-tier crafts, leading to a significant increase in price over the last years. As it stands, the Reason Gaming (Holo) sticker is the second most expensive sticker in CSGO, only to be outshined by one other sticker.
1. Titan (Holo) | Katowice 2014
This leaves us with just one more sticker, the current most expensive one in CSGO. The Titan (Holo) sticker takes this spot with ease. With reports of a recent transaction of 4 Titan stickers at roughly $39000 per sticker, this sticker is the most expensive one currently available in CSGO. Due to the low amount of stickers remaining and the nature of trading in CSGO, finding an accurate price for these items is hard to do. The last confirmed sales were “only” around the $20000 mark, but these happened in January of 2021 and therefore before a big price spike with Katowice 2014 stickers happened. A price of around $30000 or more seems to be the current price point of this item, allowing it to take the number one spot with ease.
