In the following article, you will see a Recap of 2014 Katowice Crafts in 2021. What are the craziest crafts? How many stickers have been applied? Did the price increase of the unapplied stickers continue this year? If you read til the end you will find a picture of the most expensive craft of the year!
First of all, credit where credit belongs! @RaCSGO has a project running where he follows all Katowice 2014 Crafts and tracks the prices of the stickers themselve. Check it out here. He´s the main source for this article and everybody who hasn´t done so yet, make sure to follow him on Twitter!
The stickers we´re talking about in this article were purchasable throughout the Katowice 2014 Major. Back then, each one of them, holo or not, was worth only a few cents. Over time and with a growing community, those stickers became scarce and more expensive. Their unique designs and stable price increase made them become the most legendary sticker series in the game.
Additionally, in 2021, prices for capsules as well as the individual team stickers went up by quite a bit! For the IEM Katowice Legends and Challengers capsules, we´re talking about an overall 200% price increase, both starting at 4.000 USD in January and peaking at over 12.000 USD each!
You might already wonder who buys sticker capsules for 12.000 USD?! Understandable, but that amount is (logically) just a fraction of what some stickers sell for. Going into 2021, the Katowice 2014 | Titan (holo) was at around 20.000 USD, the Katowice 2014 | Reason Gaming (holo) was 18.000 USD, and the Katowice 2014 | iBUYPOWER (holo) at around 15.500 USD.
Although the sticker with the biggest price increase throughout the year was the Katowice 2014 | mousesports (holo) with 186%, we want to keep the focus in that segment on our top-3! To end the year, the Katowice 2014 | Titan (holo) finished first with a current value of around 45.000 USD, being followed by the Katowice 2014 | iBUYPOWER (holo) at 41.000 USD and the Katowice 2014 | Reason Gaming (holo) at 37.000.
Notable mention: The Katowice 2014 | Dignitas (holo) sits at around 15.000 USD and had a price increase of 178% during 2021. Another interesting comparison: The price of a full Katowice 2014 | Sticker holo set went up from around 100.000 USD in January to nearly 230.000 USD!
Let's Talk About Crafts
The top-5 crafts of 2021 price-wise are determined by the price of the stickers at the crafting point! Those five sum up to a total amount of around 602.500 USD and include four "newer" skins with the AK-47 Wild Lotus, the AWP Gungnir, the AK-47 X-Ray, and the AWP Silk Tiger, while one craft was made on the legendary M4A4 Howl, which was as a side note, also the most expensive one with a total sticker cost of 155.500 USD.
Below, we will show you pictures of the three most expensive CS:GO sticker crafts in 2021 while continuing with the most popular stickers and guns that were used for crafts!
Most Applied Stickers/Used Guns in 2021
When we come to the number of guns and stickers used for CS:GO Katowice 2014 Sticker Crafts in 2021, the most used sticker within the last year was the legendary Katowice 2014 | Dignitas (holo) one, with a total amount of 30 applied. It is followed by the Katowice 2014 | LDLC (holo) and Katowice 2014 | HellRaisers (holo) with 25 and 17, respectively. The two most expensive stickers: Katowice 2014 | iBUYPOWER (holo) and Katowice 2014 | Titan (holo) got crafted 13 and 5 times, which is still pretty impressive, especially for our beloved IBP holo!
The most crafted gun was the AWP Gungnir with ten crafts (worth mentioning: except for a pair, they were all different!). The second most used skin for crafts was the AK-47 Wild Lotus with eight, followed by the AWP Dragon Lore and The Prince with four each!
Overall, it has been another crazy year with a total amount of 58 new Katowice 2014 (holo) crafts! The total worth of those 185 Katowice 2014 holo stickers applied is around 2 Million USD!
