Yes. e.g a NM summer StP (however an unco not a rare, but a chased one) has been sold online around $550 in July, this is ...

A note to the first editions collectors - trimmed Beta cards

Hi Members A seller located in Germany has listed several "Alpha cards" with rounded corners for sale this summer on a famous auction site last month. Seller shows 100% feedback. In the batch of cards there was a Force of Nature showing 4 green mana symbols instead of GGGG. I sent an email to the se...

Re: Mail Brag!

Re: Price difference amongst Beta RARE, when there are equal printings of each RARE

Hi Greg, In addition to what has been written above, *playable* rare cards are supposed to have been heavily played for 25 years, if they have not been damaged, bended, destroyed by handling over time. As a result, in a good shape they are considered much more valuable than, lets say, a Lifelace tha...

Re: Oathbreakers

We have six players in the group and some of the younger ones take ages to make decisions resulting in the rest of the players siting around doing nothing until their turn, which pressures the slow ones and bores the quicker players. You're free to customize your own format with your players group....

Re: Next language in MTG?

Players told me a major hurdle were high taxes; combined with a bad exchange rate and low income this makes playing Magic prohibitively expensive, and only few can afford it This is true. And the current situation about their currency is not going to be better soon, trust me... Don't know if you sa...

Re: Next language in MTG?

Both countries will be an epic fail for different reasons. Turkish as well as other languages were already tried in 1999 and 2000 through products with the rules in the specific languages.
