Re: M19 Commons cards in a Dominaria booster box

Box was bought on release day, but not opened until last night. 15 cards (all Commons) came from a single box, with no more than 3 or 4 of these cards in a single pack. I know a little about how cards get put into packs, and to me (based on how things worked in the old days, so I could be wrong) I t...

Re: Playing Cards Coatings

Yes, they probably could have changed the coating to be less like the counterfeits, but they're more concerned with all of the other things that the coating has to do, which are the things Tom talked about, while also making sure that the change isn't so drastic that the new cards would all be consi...

Re: Playing Cards Coatings

The Dominaria cards I've seen locally are more smooth than previous cards. This new coating that they've just started using in the Dallas Texas print facility has been used at the Japan facility for a while. If you have Dominaria cards made at a different print facility, they probably won't have thi...

Re: Uncut test foil exodus sheet

If they exist only as NFC, and only 1 sheet is currently known to be NFC, does that mean there's a good chance each one is currently unique, as long as nobody cuts the 2nd sheet? As far as I know, YES, each card on that sheet is slightly different from the other cards, so Yes, each card is unique. ...

Re: Legends VO - yellowless missprints

Yes, it's difficult to value misprints. Here's a guide. https://www.misprintedmtg.com/pricing/ I don't think that demand would be very high for those particular cards. If it was, you would have received some offers when you posted the cards on Facebook. They should be worth more than normal copies o...

Re: Legends VO - yellowless missprints

Those are VERY nice close up pictures. It's great that they show the same parts of the card, and aligned the same direction. That makes the comparison easier. The light is to bright in your close ups, so that could be improved, but everything else looks great. Yes, Red should fade first in the sunli...

Re: AlteredPrints

I agree. There's some truth in the story, but it's definitely exaggerated to promote current sales.

Re: Problems,Bugs,etc....On The Librarities Forum

It looks like we have a pretty big problem. The image hosting service http://www.hostingpics.net/ used on the Librarities forum says that they've shut down at the beginning of the new year. No more new pictures can be hosted. All images that are currently hosted will be up for only a few more months...

Ok, I guess it's about time I posted a picture in this thread. This is a variety of... miscuts (including some connectors), cards which are off center on the front and normal on the back, a signed card, blurry text, white spot, a crimped card, Grimlock MTG promo / Transformers crossover Mox Crystal ...

Re: Fell off the wagon; collection tracking advice needed

Wow, welcome back to the game! :-D Remember to have fun, that's what it's all about. DON'T open your global sealed collection though! In addition to Deckbox, which was already mentioning, there's also https://store.tcgplayer.com/collection and https://www.echomtg.com/ I'm pretty sure that MTGprice.c...

Re: Mail Brag!

I enjoyed the one episode that I watched.
I have a pile of misprint mail here myself, along with a stack of opened stuff that needs put away.
I'm hoping to work on this a little this evening.

Re: Wrong card stock used for Ixalan double-sided cards

The printing facilities do not exclusively produce Magic cards. They also print MANY other items for other companies.
The card stock which was accidentally used could be from anything.
