Topic: Sticker Spotlight - Harp of War supply, price, crafts & trend
Welcome to our third CS:GO „Sticker spotlight“ series. Today we are going to feature another old, unique sticker and its backstory, as well as the current price development and crafts. In today’s article, we will be covering the only discontinued Holo sticker in the game, known as „Harp of War (Holo)“.
Harp of War (Holo) - General Information
The Harp of War (Holo) sticker is one of four discontinued stickers that were added to CS:GO on May 1st, 2014 with an update called “The Hunt Begins”. This sticker is the only sticker from four discontinued ones that got a Holo version added to the game. Which makes it a bit more unique than the other three. As you may already know it was added with 17 other stickers in the Community Sticker Capsule 1, but later on got removed due to the copyright scandal that workshop artist “sic” was involved in.
The Harp of War (Holo) sticker is an original art creation and design by the two workshop artists “FlaMmenWerFeR” (previously known as “DarkSilver”) and “sic”. Just like the other discontinued stickers that they worked on together, this one is not an exception on how good the quality is.
Workshop artist “sic” said that the design story was inspired by a character from the cartoon “Mickey and the Beanstalk” which he tweaked with an AK-47 and a war helmet. In the Steam Workshop, we can see that they had three different design ideas for this sticker: The Paperback version, the Holographic Foil version, and the Glossy version.
Harp of War (Holo) - Sticker Supply
The Harp of War (Holo) sticker has a close fight with the “Winged Defuser” sticker when it comes to the lowest supply of a discontinued stickers. There are 151 tradable “Harp of War (Holo)” stickers still available, as well as 68 confirmed banned ones. The supply of the Harp of War (Holo) has been slowly decreasing over the past several years just like every other discontinued sticker. We don’t see crafts with the sticker that often, but every time we do, it gives a decent hit to the overall supply of the sticker.
Harp of War (Holo)- Sticker Crafts
There is a total amount of 8536 crafts with one sticker applied out there. 46 of them are four-time Harp of War (Holo) crafts. Out of those 46, 10 are owned by the CSGO collector @pathcsgolol. That is a whopping amount of ~22% of the whole four-time craft supply. His collection is probably the most unique collection of “Harp of War (Holo)” sticker crafts out there.
He currently owns a full Neo-Noir collection with four Harp of War (Holo) stickers applied on each skin. It’s worth mentioning that he was the one that applied all of those stickers and made this Neo-Noir set on his own.
Just like the Neo-Noir set he also owns a full Printstream set with four Harp of War (Holo) stickers applied to each Printstream skin. As you might have expected, the Printstream set was also crafted by @pathcsgolol himself with the USP-S Printstream being the last one that he crafted.
Another unique thing about his Harp of War (Holo) sticker collection is that all of his four-time skins are on StatTrak versions. He even did a MP9 Starlight Protector craft with Harp of War (Holo) stickers. You don’t see discontinued sticker crafts on SMGs that often.
Even though we could talk about @pathcsgolol Harp of War (Holo) sticker collection the whole day, we can’t forget about some other gems that have been crafted in the past. A perfect match of the green colors on the sticker is also shown on the AK Hydroponic with 0.00420 float that was crafted by @darthrevan22.
A nice little purple touch of the sticker colors can be seen on the MP9 Wild Lily craft by @VinchTheGrinch. Some amazing crafts with skins that are based around nature themes.
There are also a few OG Harp of War crafts that are special on their own level. Those being the FN AK Case Hardened #321 by @DesolateCSGO and the MW AK Case Hardened #413 by @S1lverStandard. Beautiful gems that shine bright in-game when holding them in your hands. Since we are talking about OG crafts let’s also mention the FN Famas Afterimage from the eSports 2013 Winter collection that is owned by @dmg.
Harp of War (Holo)- Price Trend/Development
We can see that the Harp of War (Holo) sticker follows the same trend as any other discontinued sticker when it comes to the price trend. Slow increase until early May of 2019 and after that, it spikes to almost double the price in just one month. The price trend is for sure to be expected to look like this considering its rarity and overall supply.
The cheapest Harp of War (Holo) sticker right now costs around 750 USD with recent sales going from 530 USD to 760 USD. The cost of a new four-time Harp of War (Holo) sticker craft would be around ~3000 USD. That price for sure leaves some people speechless.
Considering my personal favorite sticker from all of the “discontinued stickers” is the Harp of War (Holo), it’s really hard to pick my favorites. But, if I really had to I would personally go for the Neo-Noir set owned by @pathcsgolol and the FN AK Case Hardened pattern #321 by @DesolateCSGO. Honorable mentions in my book are the AK Hydroponic from @darthrevan22 and the MP9 Wild Lily by @VinchTheGrinch.
Hope you all enjoyed today's article and got a few insights to this rare and old discontinued sticker in CSGO. Be sure to let us know which 4x Harp of War (Holo) craft is your favorite on our Social Media.
