As a reference for the prices of the Katowice 2014 stickers when they got released, we will take an average that concludes our research, as the Steam Community Market history sadly does not go back in time that long. For today's Katowice 2014 prices we took RA's spreadsheet and multiplied the April prices by 0,92 as they are not yet updated for May/June and the latest sales on buff163! With that, we should get a good overview of the total price increase in USD and percentage.
Below we will show you a few of the sources for the prices of Katowice 2014 stickers and capsules. It was quite hard to find screenshots from back then and with that 100% correct prices, but we are convinced to be able to give a good overview with the research done. Furthermore: We will only focus on the Holo version of the stickers in this article.
Katowice 2014 stickers
I am sure most of you will know what is special about the Katowice 2014 stickers and their prices, but for all of you who do not: The Katowice 2014 event was the second-ever CS:GO Major and the first to release team stickers. While the player base was continuously growing, the supply of the Katowice 2014 stickers got lower and lower and with that, the prices went up to unbelievable amounts.

The EMS Katowice 2014 capsules
It is pretty safe to say that the EMS Katowice 2014 Legends and Challengers capsules have also been on sale for 0.25 USD and with that, we are coming to our first comparison for this article. While you would have gotten two of both for a Dollar in 2014 you would need to take USD 10.000 out of your bank to get an EMS Katowice 2014 Legends Capsule and USD 11.000 for a Challengers one. With that we are talking about a multiplier of 40.000/44.000 - a single dollar would have made you USD 40.000/44.000 with current prices.
Capsule price development
For the capsules, we were able to recreate a price trend that you can see down below. As a reference, we also showcased the Steam Community Market price trend for the EMS Katowice 2014 Legends capsule. To find out the prices, we took a look at different Katowice 2014 openings over the years that we found on YouTube and the mentioned prices.
We decided to go for one graph for both Capsules, but as a side information: the Challenger one has always been a bit more expensive. Overall the graph shows that the prices started rising heavily pretty fast. Around two years after release, we already see a price increase from USD 0,25 up to USD 225. The capsules never stopped going up in price and reached a four-digit amount in 2018/2019. The next milestone of reaching five digits was made in 2021 when they peaked at USD 12.000/13.500 in December! Right now the capsule sells for around USD 10.000/11.000.
Katowice 2014 sticker prices in 2014
It was quite challenging to find reliable sources regarding the prices of the Katowice 2014 Holo stickers back in 2014. Long-term collector and owner of three EMS Katowice 2014 Legends capsules @frankfurdaa told us the following: "The low-tier non-Holos were all 3 cents each, I think the Holos ranged from 5-50 cents but that is all I really know."
That statement was confirmed by screenshots taken by @Tea__With__Milk who showed us his Steam Community trade history (Picture 1) where he sold a Katowice 2014 Titan Holo for USD 1.50 and multiple other Katowice 2014 stickers for prices below USD 1. With that for the following paragraph, we will assume prices of around USD 1.00 for the iBUYPOWER, Titan, and Reason Gaming Holo and prices of USD 0.80 for all the other Katowice 2014 Holo stickers.
Price increase of the team stickers - Challengers
It is time to talk about the actual numbers when it comes to the price increase of Katowice 2014 team stickers. First, we are going to take a look at the stickers featured in the Katowice 2014 Challenger capsule. The biggest price increases under those Katowice 2014 Holos can be seen at the iBUYPOWER Holo and Reason Gaming Holo sticker. Both of them currently sell for prices around USD 40.000.
In total a full set of the Katowice 2014 Challenger teams could have been purchased for approximately USD 7 back in 2014, nowadays the collection of those eight stickers sums up to a total of around USD 121.200! With that, we are talking about a price increase with the multiplier of x 17314!
Legends capsule - prices 2014 vs. 2022
Next up we got the full set of Legends stickers from the Katowice 2014 Major! The most popular and most expensive one amongst these is the Katowice 2014 Titan Holo sticker that sells for around USD 41.000 nowadays! The total price tag of those eight Katowice 2014 Holos back in 2014 was once again around USD 7.
The current worth of the package is about 90.590 and with that around USD 30.000 under the total value of the Challenger Holos. With that, we are talking about a multiplier of around x 12940! Quite impressive numbers right?
The final question
The full package price of Katowice 2014 Holo team stickers then vs. now. While a full set of Katowice 2014 Holo stickers would have cost around USD 15 it sums up to a total worth of around USD 211.790 today!
Our goal with this article was to provide a solid overview of how much the Katowice 2014 Holo stickers increase in price over the years. The amounts are sadly not 100 percent accurate for the sales in 2014 as we were, although researching quite a lot, not able to find any screenshots from the Steam community market in 2014!
