I'm sure I'll want one sooner or later, they are actually noticeable different(rounded corners) but for now I won't stress about it quite as much. I got home and checked over my collection, looks like I did have Revised, Unlimited, 4th and 5th Editions all seperated out and properly labeled - albeit...

Unopened display box of starter decks - wow. Just wow. I don't even want to speculate on the value of something like that. On behalf of younger players and future generations, thank you for preserving something like that. As for the white-bordered cards, they aren't difficult to come by, I can proba...

Well... it does cause a bit more, but it seems a lot of people and places have been using the wrong terminology. I had always heard it: Alpha = 1st Beta = 2nd Revised = 3rd Unlimited = 4th Which... seeing as 4th and Unlimited are apparently 2 seperate things AND Unlimited came before Revised, it app...

Right. And according to the page for 4th edition it was printed black-bordered in Porteguise, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, and Traditional Chinese. So confusion aleviated I think. Man, this is tough stuff to learn. Thank you all for helping out, and also for creating these really handy and detailed re...

The terms at the time were that limited meant black-bordered, and unlimited meant white-bordered. There was no printing of Unlimited in other languages, but you will find Revised in Italian, French and German. So, you'll find WB and BB versions of Revised for those three languages. But user jamesbo...

Hey, look at that, I always went straight to the "rarities" section of the site!

Well, that adds about 4 new dragons to my buy-list... won't be hard to get them but still, the fact that unlimited and revised were printed black-bordered in other countries counts.

it does appear to be in very good condition, so that will be a nice addition to my dragon collection. question: 4th edition was printed in 1995, but the copyright date is 1996, was 4th reprinted later for the other markéts? what years? these days, at least in my understanding, foreign language cards...

Could someone help me identify this card?

So I found this Korean-language Shivan Dragon on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-KOREAN-BLACK-COARDER-SHIVAN-DRAGON-NEAR-MINT-MINT-MAGIC-THE-GATHERING-MTG-/231113397829?pt=Trading_Card_Games_US&hash=item35cf6e9645 went ahead and bought it because I do like foreign-language cards, but I cannot figure...

Thanks, that's some very helpful background, I really appreciate it. That clears up a lot of my confusion.

I actually do have one card that was worth about $40 before I had the artist sign it. Sadly the signature did not come out that well but its not like I planned to sell it.

Thanks, I'd looked over that site before but I wasn't 100% sure if that's the place to go through.

PSA grading

This is probably going to come across as a stupid question, but here goes: Could someone explain to me how PSA grading works? I understand the basics(sort of) that its a world-wide accepted standard for grading the quality of memorabilia and collectibles, and of course that PSA 10 is the highest gra...

Drake Project

Hi all, a while back I posted(in the wrong area, my apologies) about my dragon collection. Now I'm back looking for help assembling a Drakes master list(dragons and drakes, they go together like peas in a pod). Anyway, the currently-assembled list(found in the next post) includes only the basic card...
